It sounds like your radio has had its hospitality mode activated. The hospitality mode is a mode which is often used by hotels or similar establishments, who wish to set a maximum volume limit on the radio. To remove this volume limiter is an easy fix. All you have to do is turn the volume down to 00, push and hold the volume button in for ten seconds until the unit beeps, than you can turn the volume all the way up to 50, which is the max, and than push the button in again to set it. This will deactivate the hospitality mode for you.

    Gracias por e Apoyo funciono bien!! ya estaba a punto de mandarlo a reparación!

    Thank you so much. I thought it would have to be repaired at extortionate cost! This solution worked brilliantly, first time. This feature is not mentioned in the original Boston Acoustics instruction manual, which I still own. Poor show, Boston.

How do you fix a boston Horizon Duo - I as the unit just turns on and makes a load humming sound and then th edisplay switches off


If you are lucky, it only went in protection mode and after disconnecting the power for a little while and reconnecting things could come back. But if the system did not have an overload protection, a fuse can be blown, or worse the power supply or power amp can be blown to pieces. There is one thing semiconductors don't like is work over their limit.

Power button won't turn radio off


I've got the same problem. All other functionality is fine, however I can't turn the unit off once I've turned it on. I can use the power button to adjust volume, just not turn it off, so I have to unplug it to get it to turn off.

Wake up with the radio is always set to level 19... I would like to set my radio alarm with a lower volume... my centrios is a Speed to Sound CENTRIOS IPOD/IPHONE CLOCK RADIO I will return this


We also have this problem. Found this info in the product's Q&A on the website: http://answers.thesource.ca/answers/9026/product/1218694/centrios-centrios-ipod-iphone-clock-radio-white-questions-answers/questions.htm

"Ok. there is a way that you can LOWER the wakeup radio volume. turn on the radio (forget about the alarm right now) and go to the station that you want. when you get to the station, you should be able to press the 'skip/fast forward' button on the remote. when you do this, number 5 should show up beside the station #. When you do this, it lowers the overall volume of every volume level, so now level 19 is equal to volume level 9/10, which for me is loud enough to wake me, but not give me a heart attack! so, now when the alarm goes of, the volume is a lot lower. BUT if you want to wake up to your ipod, this method will NOT work, it will still be up at level 19. so when you turn on your ipod, it will be really LOUD. again, this only works with the radio."

Also if you are waking to ipod and not radio this was in the reviews:
"Fooled with it for a bit and discovered that you have to turn down the volume of the iPod first before putting it on the dock. We've tried it a few times just to make sure and it worked every time!!"

Still not a perfect solution, but a great improvement. Hope this helps someone.
