BOSe Wave Radio - Disk "not readable"

I had the same problem with the disk unreadable error and took my unit to a authorized repair dealer about 100 miles from where I live to have it fixed. It ended up costing me about $300 to have the CD unit totally replaced which is almost as much as I paid for the unit in the first place. I am like a lot of you that used the CD very little although the unit was about 3 years old. I think Bose has a problem and would like us to think it is very rare. I bought a Lifestyle surround system about 14 years ago that has a CD and have never had a problem with it so needless to say I am very disappointed in the Wave II Radio/CD system. I am fairly certain the problem will occur again, but only time will tell.

Bose wave no sound

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.

Radio will not turn on

My AWR1-1W stopped working. It would power up, but do nothing except occasional static. I was able to set the clock. The clock did work, but that's all. I know Bose products are high quality, so I was not ready to give up on my radio. I spent ages trying to find a fix online. I finally stumbled on something pertaining to another radio that gave me a clue. I opened the battery backup on the bottom and inserted 3 new AA batteries. The radio is now playing like new. I dont know why that would affect a radio plugged into an outlet, but it fixed mine! Good luck!

Moved back to South Africa

You need to get a stepdown autotransformer that takes the 220~240vac input and step it down to 120vac (BOSE can handle 50 or 60Hz line frequency), the problem will be getting one with the NEMA5-15R US style outlet so you can plug your BOSE into this step down autotransformer.
