Bose wave radio schematic

My AWR1-1W radio neither receives nor displays the data. I think it is the power supply but need a schematic to continue. There is a +10V ok, but I do need the schematic; will pay for it if needed. Can you help me?

Thanks,
Jack C.

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

Good Luck.

Actually the problem was caused by a bad 470uf cap, that was used to filter the powersupply for all the analog amps. Replaced the cap the unit works like new.

Found this in the manual:

To adjust the display brightness -

The display dims automatically to medium or low brightness, as appropriate for low light room conditions. You can adjust the brightness setting of the display for both strong light and lowest light environments, but not for the medium light setting. Turn the system off before setting brightness levels.

• In a strongly lit room, hold down CD Mode and press Volume up or down to adjust the setting between 5 and 9 (it is preset to 8).
• In a barely lit room, hold down CD Mode and press Volume up or down to adjust the setting between 1 and 5 (it is preset to 2).
• If you do not want the system to dim automatically, set both levels to 5.

SOURCE: Station preset on AWR1-1W bose radio

I found out you tune the radio to the station you want to preset, and hold the preset button (1-6) that you want to assign it to until it beeps. And it's set.

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.

My Bose wave radio/cd player has an annoying buzzing sound. what could that be? I can't even listen to the radio or cd player


Your problem is likely a bad capacitor in the power supply. Unfortunately though, 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.

Bose wave radio won't turn on


Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monpoly on repair of these units. Their web site, www.bose.com, offers to repair most Wave radios for $100 or to provide a $200 allowance towards purchase of a new Wave. Before you spend the big bucks on theis trouble-prone product though, you might want to check out the new HD radios -- better sound and MUCH lower prices than Bose.

Check your options before you spend the big bucks though. A new HD radio, with better sound and a MUCH lower price, might be a better choice than repair of a problem prone Bose.
