Horrific bone crunching sound from clock radio

I have a 7 yr. old Bose clock radio w single cd player. One morning it woke me to a sound I can only describe as loud grinding loudness on top of static sounding loudness. The clock works but any attempt to turn any part of the radio, cd or alarm on, results in the horrific sound. Bose said they'd take $125 to send it in for repair. I'd rather buy the Kmart special for 20 bucks than invest MORE money into this product. Have you ever heard of this problem? THanks!!!

    Same problem. Radio powers up but when I try to turn on the radio I get a extremely loud almost buzzer sounding noise coming through the speakers.

    Same problem for SECOND TIME. First instance cost $125 plus shipping to fix but I could not get a description of what the problem was or what was done to fix it.

    NOW the problem has popped again for the SECOND time...Bose says it has been more than 90 days so there is no warranty on the first repair and any new repair would be the $125 plus shipping charge.

    It this radio REALLY that good that total investment approaches $600?

Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of these sets. Before you spend the big bucks on repair or a Bose "upgrade", you might want to check out the new HD radios. Better sound and MUCH lower prices than the Bose.

WAVE radio transformer bad ???


If you can check ohms,you can also read volts. Open the radio again and look for DC volts on the rectifiers capacitors.They look like :cans", normally the color is blue. Check for positive dc v. against chassis ground. If no + tension,your rectifier or your secondary are open.
