Check ac coming in, then go to the rectifier and check for dc volts on the plus and minus, check voltage at 25 volt 10,0000 uf cap should have voltage present. check positive solder joint at the cap and print board.

    i have new info on these radios that most likely cure the problem email me if you want the info.

    I fixed my problem of the popping when unplugged by finding a short on an SOT-23 package. I removed it, the short was gone on the board AND the component. I checked several times and finally decided to solder the part back on. Guess what, problem is FIXED! That blows me away, but I'm happy. Not sure how long it will last so I'd like to find a replacement part if/when needed. I don't have a schematic and there is no silkscreen on the PCB so how/where can I find that info? I have the older 3 battery unit. Thank you! Pat I've never used this, but I hope to find out more about it and how I can contribute, because I love this kind of info... :)

Bose does not release their schematic diagrams or parts lists, so factory maintenance is about the only way to go. You can start the process by visiting www.Bose.com, but be ready for some sticker shock. Before you do anything though, every Bose has a line fuse inside the case. The location varies by model and date of manufacture, but if you open the case it will be simple to locate. Check it, and replace it if necessary. The fuse is there to safeguard electronics against power surges, so it is your likely culprit.

We can not turn on or charge the Bose. Is there a way to try a new power cord to see if that is the issue?


Which model of the Wave radio is this ? If it is using a 9V battery you might want to check the pcb for some discoloration at the Q4 transistor.
If you have a meter available confirm if it is good or bad. Bose has a
problem with this transistor part# 2SC3792 that is undersized for its
purpose. This transistor provides the 5V for the IC and without the 5V
your radio will look as if it is totally dead with no display and you cannot
turn it on. Typically it is only Q4 that is shorted (0-3 ohms) between the outside (emitter and base) pins. Replacing it with the same part will
bring the radio back to life. Bose recommends a beefier part -
2SD438F-MP-E but it is very hard to obtain. I have used a 2SC2655
without any problem and it is much easier to get.

Unfortunately, Bose does not release their parts lists or schematics, effectively creating a monopoly for parts and repairs. In fact, their web site says that the Bose factory is the only option for service or repair. They used to list a flat rate repair charge on the web site, but removed it - probably because it scared too many people. Their troubleshooting guide (below) might help, but it's very simplistic.

Before you invest in expensive factory repair on one of these trouble prone sets, you might want to investigate the new HD radios -- better sound at a MUCH lower price.

Grand kid's spilled pop onunit.bad r222 +c209 mod #awrc-1p bose.


Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of these sets. There is, however, a line fuse on a circuit board inside the radio. CAUTION: disconnect the set from its power source before you open it up or start poking around inside it. If you're lucky, all you will need is a simple fuse replacement. The sets are, however, notorious for "blowing" power transformers. If the fuse is not the problem, you will likely need to send the set to Bose for repair. On their web site, www.bose.com, they offer to repair most Wave sets for $100 or give $200 credit towards the purchase of a new Wave. Before you spend the big bucks though, you might want to check out the new HD radios. Better sound and MUCH lower prices than the Bose.

Think Power surge blew out radio. Can it be fixed?


The fix may be as simple as replacing a fuse. Location varies by model, but each has an internal fuse on one of its circuit boards. SAFETY NOTE: It may seem obvious, but be sure to disconnect power from the set before you open the case.

If the fuse is not the problem, you will need to seek professional repair. Unfortunately, Bose does not release their parts lists or schematics, effectively creating a monopoly for parts and repairs.

No power up


Considering that power is present, popping sound is caused by a faulty Q401, 5V supply for display.

Good Luck.

Bose Radio doesn't turn on


The problem is a shorted NPN surface mount transistor on solderside of the PCB. It is located underneath of R402.

This transistor is used to switch power to the unit.
