    Static and interference has nothing to do with this. I am sending it off to Norbern Electronics for repair. Thanks for your suggestion.

Loud buzz is usually caused by static and radio interference in radios. If none of this is affecting you unit presently there there is a probability that some cables which aid the fm antenna in receiving stations this could act as static which brings about the buzz on the unit. Either way it is caused by interference on the fm receiver end and all you have to do is get that serviced and the problem is solved.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Bose will not tune and no sound


First make sure you haven't selected Aux or CD by mistake. Push the Radio button on the remote and try to tune. If that doesn't work, try unplugging the power cord. Wait 10 seconds, then plug it back in. This resets the system, which may fix your problem.

Bose radio on but no sound


Make sure you haven't pushed the Mute button on the remote by mistake. Push it again or the Volume^ button to release mute. Also make sure the radio isn't on CD or AUX. Push the Radio button to return it to radio listening.

Bose Wave Radio/CD bad static and occasional "pop"


Hi, When you change the Aux turn the radio off. Then turn it back on. As for the static move the radio to another plug or to a different room. If you have floresecent lighting it may do that too.
The cord acts like an antenna so don't bundle the cord. Good luck.

Can you connect two Bose Wave radios together for more sound volume?


There are several types of Bose Wave Radios - the one pictured (the others likely do, too) have "Line Out" and "Aux In" jacks. Each consists of a Left and Right pair of RCA type jacks. Simply connect the "Line Out" jacks of one of the radios to the "Aux In" jacks of the other. Select the "Aux" source of the radio that has the cable connected to the Aux In jacks. Whatever is playing on the main radio (CD, Tuner, or other input) will be heard on the second radio - if the Aux source is selected.

Please rate this reply if it was found to be helpful - good luck!

Bose Wave Radio only turns on + off using am/fm toggle button


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.

My Bose wave radio with aux. for attaching to a CD player stopped working. I tried plugging it different places. It is an old system.


Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repairs. According to their web site, www.bose.com, they will repair most Wave radios for $100 or give you $200 credit towards the purchase of a new set. 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.

The Bose engineers in their "infinite" wisdom developed a $300 radio with no, that is NO, tone control. This means the only way to tune bass response is to reposition the Wave radio itself. If you put it in a corner of a room, it will produce the most bass. If it is only against one wall, not so much bass. To reduce bass response to a minimum, you would have to suspend the device from a wire in the middle of the room. Good luck. I would never buy a radio without a tone control; I literally inherited by Bose Wave Radio and use external speakers which do have tone controls.
