Bose Wave Radio - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

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!

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.

Most likely the recorded format is wrong and that is the cause.

hmmm it seems the output chip isnt getting stable voltage to keep itself running so it keeps turning itself off and trying to protect itself from damage when the voltage keeps dropping

The tuner section may have been toasted by the power surge that affected your home. See if there is another option for an antenna connection and try that. If not, then it does not appear you have much choice.

U might want to contact Bose for an authorized factory repair station in your area.

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.

You can buy an AC line conditioner, they range from cheap and useless to expensive and exotic, which is able to filter interference coming over the power lines. Simply plug that into the wall, and your radio into the filter, and there should be an improvement.

You can also try plugging the radio into a different outlet, making sure the outlets are wired properly, and try moving the radio to a new location further away from the source(s) of interference.

I think a spelling error is causing problems here. Never hear of Boze GPS and neither has Google.

    Flip the unit upside down with display facing you, take your left hand and put down on the left side of the unit. Look at your thumb near buy or underneath it you will see a triangle with lines running through it thats the battery door for a 9v use the triangle for grip when sliding the door (Opens to the left). You will need 1-9v battery maybe different on newer models mine is a 1st generation model. Good luck, hope this helps.
