Correction. You can save the pdf. Just view it, then select Save, NOT THE BROWSER SAVE, but the save icon in the PDF plug-in.

Or easier, right click the link in this article.

If you don't have your user guide any more, you can view, but not download it here:

http://products.bose.com/pdf/customer_service/owners/og_awmsii.pdf

Bose has blocked the download of the .pdf file for whatever reason.

If you check it you will see that it is compatible with international AC voltages (220-240) but France uses a different AC receptacle than the US so you will need the correct power cord.
As far as frequency bands; Europe uses much the same for AM & FM but some bands not used in the US won't be available with the Bose.

Because the user is supposed to be an idiot, they have very little detail in their manual besides what is necessary to operate it, they do not specify whether the power supply is auto-switching for different AC voltages or not. Most modern electronics uses a type of supply that will accept anything from 100-240 VAC and that kind of supply doesn't care much what the line frequency (50 or 60Hz) is since they do not use low frequency AC transformers.

Typically, their customer service phone line is answered qjuickly and by knowledgeable people so I recommend you call them with the request for the needed AC power cord and ask them about the means of accommodating French line voltage.

You didn't mention where you live so you will have to check for the proper current toll-free number on page 27 of the online user guide linked above.

I have a bose acoustic wave,single disc model CD-3000. The CD is not working,the CD spins but won't play. The radio works great.


Had the same problem. Mine the cd drive got out of alignment. Sorry to say the fix is to have it replaced. BOSE will do this for about $150. Typically this includes the one year service agreement, a full system "tune up" and a one year warrenty.

Call BOSE and they will take care of you.

CD's skip, then completely stop playing on my 1999 acoustic wave


Sounds like a maintenance issue - try cleaning the disc lens using a standard disc lens cleaner (you can buy in many high street stores) or using a lint-free cloth on the glass eye.
Otherwise, contact Bose.

No light in display


When the display is out? Does the backlight ever come on? If so, then there is no way to change this. If the backlight doesn't come on, contact Bose for service.
