For programming the radio station settings, hold down a numbered button on the remote for several seconds after you have tuned to the desired station. For setting the time or alarm, use a similar approach, hold the individual button down long enough for the radio to change mode to setting mode. When you are done making a setting, you can wait a few moments and the radio will then return to its regular operating mode. As for the battery, there is a small sliding door on the bottom of the remote that contains a small replaceable disc battery, be sure to get the polarity right.

Good luck this should do it.

If you have a cd or two stuck in your Bose wave radio, here's how to remove it and save yourself $99. This procedure is for the radio (model AWRCC1 or similar) with a single front loading cd slot.
1. First unplug the power, wait a minute, and then replug power, watching the front display.
2. The display will read "Ejecting". If the cd ejects, then you're done and can skip Part II. If it doesn't eject and/or it displays "Disk error" then you'll need to do the Part II steps.
1. Unplug the power cord.
2. Turn the radio upside down with the front facing you.
3. Remove the 5 screws from the bottom plate.
4. Hinge the front of the bottom plate up no more than 2". Don't overdo this or you'll damage various ribbon cables inside. Use extra hands or a prop to keep it open this amount.
5. Reach inside and tilt-up the front of cd player's metal housing just enough to access the rims of the cd(s) within the space created in step 4.
6. Pinch the rim(s) of the cd(s) and gently pull it/them out.
7. Reverse these steps to reassemble your radio.
Enjoy your cd player again!

If it's on just one disc, the disc is dirty or fingerprinted or scratched or in some way damaged. Inspect and clean, try again, and if that doesn't work, discard it. On the other hand, if the radio rejects lots of discs, that means the CD player needs service. Send it to Bose.

yes if there's no antenna the cable should be stretch out towards outdoor and try to put the radio somewhere best static is out; other thing can be that the radio station is too far!

did you trye a new cd not the same one but a different one ?? it could be the cd not the player !

Bose Wave Radio | Answered on Jan 10, 2015

But bass is that characteristic sound that Bose is known for....
That said, I agree with you Kathy. These sets can be a little on the boomy side. You do not say what model you have, but as a rule, these radios do not have tone controls. The later versions do have a "talk radio" mode that you can select, and this does affect the tone settings. I can't remember it increases or decreases the bass level, but whatever it does, it is substantial. Give this a try if you have a later version of the radio. Also, placement of the radio has a big effect on frequency attenuation. If you want to decrease the bass level, move the radio away from the wall...., certainly don't put it in a corner (two walls increase the bass level), and get it up off the ground (if it is near the floor... which acts like a "third" wall).

Hope this helps.

Do you have the warranty paperwork for the radio? If so, then check that first. Otherwise, I would go to the Bose website and see where they say to send it for service.

Yes, the problem is there are two pairs of white socket/connectors that connect the whole front panel of the unit, to the main unit. One side has two rows of 4 pins, & the other side has two rows of 5 pins. I found that these eventually wear out & lose there spring tension. Much like that of a wall outlet in your house...they held tight in the beginning, but eventually it doesn't take much to knock the cord out. So if you can find replacements then you'd be golden. Good luck. I haven't fixed mine yet b/c I havent found the connectors yet. Also make sure that you take out the screw on the back of the lcd circuit board that is screwed down at one edge of the cd slot, (identifiable by the fact that it is the only screw that holds down a metal tab.) The tab is what grounds the lcd shield & entire front panel & you must remove it, bend the tabs tighter, & then reassemble it. That alone may be your problem. Just expect to have to do it once a year to fix the display, as the metal is old & weak. Hope this helps someone.

I took mine back to the Bose store and they gave me credit on my Wave that was about ten years old toward a new CD wave radio. I would recommend taking it to the Bose store and see what they can do for you.
