Question about Bose Wave Radio

2 Answers

AWR1-1W Just died. No lights on display. Power out of transformer yet I do not know what the voltages should be. Is a transformer available. Capacitors OK. Static heard when pulling cord from outlet. Output power transistor OK. This seems to be a common problem with this unit. Is there a common component and an easy way to test for this issue. Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Thanks for the suggestion. The rectifier and the cap both had 15v out. Still no fix.

  • kenkress Feb 03, 2009

    Thanks again,

    I tossed the unit. Got to be too much time invested.

    Today, noticed all possible lights were light up on the display, tried to turn radio on but it would not turn on, then unplugged the power and replugged now nothing, no lights or sound, but when I unplug it again I hear a pop in the speakers.

    Same problems as previously reported by others, noticed all possible lights were light up on the display, tried to turn radio on but it would not turn on, then unplugged the power and replugged now nothing, no lights or sound, but when I unplug it again I hear a pop in the speakers.

Check the rectifier next to the transformer, the dc out should be around 15 volts and the big main cap as well.

    well im waiting for the bridge amp and a to92 mosfet for mine i believe this is the problem. if you know where the regulator is there should be around 18 volts in and about 12 out.

  • tim Feb 11, 2009

    well if you are still looking to fix the radio i have some info for you. email me if you would like the info as i cant type to fast and it will take me alittle while to explain. my radio is fixed now and its great.

Malibu transformer on but lights dont work


Voltage drop because transformer is not putting out enough power as when it was new.
Or Short along the wire somewhere.
Connect new wire and 1 bulb, but do not connect to existing wire.

Main transformer voltage


Google the complete model number of your "amplituner" and see if a schematic is available from the parts suppliers or if a complete schematic is available from Denon..

Got a jamo avr693 amplifier the stanby transformer died .took it to shop for replacement but i was asked for its voltage which i dis not know can you please investigate the voltage for that little tr


I suspect that there is not a single standby transformer. Seems like a waste to have two transformers to power the same system. Your input voltage will be 220/110V depending on country. I also think that you need to look for a faulty IC/relay. Because most systems like that has a circuit for main power on and standby fed from the same power loop, main diff being that the moment you press main power on it energises a relay that self feeds and switces the main power on. Look for faulty relay or IC.

My Toshiba RDXV60 stopped working, there are no lights no sound and will not respond to the remote or to button operation.


if you want to confirm if the transformer in the power supply is also bad you have to make a voltage checking. turn on the dvd player and make a voltage checking at the output at the power supply board.

My Orbit 57899 is saying no ac but the outlet to where this goes is working fine


I believe that you plug a transformer into the outlet. If this transformer is not working, no power goes to the timer. Remove the battery and if the timer display goes out (and it may take some time, possibly hours) the transformer is in need of replacement. They are available at sprinkler suppliers and maybe even a local hardware.

Find where the voltage source is controlled to turn the present lights on and off and disconnect. You need to retrofit a Malibu type voltage transformer that will provide the appropriate voltage; from what you say you want a transformer that provides the voltage of the 1.4 watt blue light, most likely 12 volts. When the switch that controlled the old lights is turned on, it will now provide voltage to the Malibu type transformer.
You can check out the Malibu web site for what's available or go to Lowes or Home Depot. Please let me know if you have questions.

The montier turns on then turns right off


Hi!
When a monitor display image for a second and then goes to black screen... there are possible reasons why this problem occur..

1. You need to check if the high voltage ballast transformer of your backlight inverter is about to be burned... the transformer is overheating..that's why you experience the monitor working for a couple of seconds and then it will shut off until the transformer cool down again and then it will be ready to work again...

2. Check also the backlight inverter if it is busted...the backlight inverter is the light source responsible for the image display you seen on your screen. If this are busted then all that you will be seeing is black screen

3. You need to check the power supply section for possible loose connections and possible blown and bad capacitors..

the ballast transformer has direct effect on power supply section.. when there is overheating transformer,,, the supply current from the power supply section becomes unstable.. and will not be able to supply the remaining good working ballast transformer.

In case you do not know, the ballast transformer generates high voltage for the backlight inverter to work....

Please be advise that if you don't have the knowledge, the proper skills and the right tools to open the back cover of your monitor and replace its part...don't risk it...

Otherwise, bring your unit to a credible technician and avail of warranty if there is any.....


Much appreciated if you rate this help...thanks...

My Dell 1905fp Ultrasharp was coming on intermittently for a little bit and then it would not power up at all.


You said your monitor will be on for little bit and then would not power up anymore... there are two possible reasons why this problem occur..

1. You need to check if the high voltage ballast transformer of your backlight inverter is about to be burned... the transformer is overheating..that's why you experience the monitor working for a couple of minutes and then it will shut off until the transformer cool down again and then it will be ready to work again...

2.

Replace the high voltage transformer. It is the ballast for the backlight.. If you could pinpoint the one that's overheating then that is the one that needs replacement. Much better if you will replace the four transformer...
