Push the "mode" button twice to enter the time change function. Once the display is blinking keep pushing the mode button until you see the "pm" icon on the LCD display. When that happens set the clock as you normally would using the 1-4 keys.

Remember to check if the 12 hour clock is set to AM or PM.

Good luck.

Here's how it works on my si 686.

Push the mode button twice to enter the "set time" mode. Once the current time is blinking, advance hours by pressing button 2 until it passes 12 midnight, and the display will be in 24 hour mode. 3:00 PM will be displayed as 15:00. Keep pressing button 2, advancing the hour past 24:00 (like a 25th hour) returns the clock to 12 hour mode. At that point set the time using buttons 1 thru 4 (1 hr-, 2 hr+, 3 min-, 4 min+). If you advance the hour past 11am to 12 noon, the PM indicator appears in the upper left corner because 12 noon is 12 pm. Likewise, when you advance the hour past 11pm to 12 midnight, the PM indicator disappears because 12 midnight is 12am. There is no AM indicator that displays, only PM.

To toggle the display between date, alarm, or temperature press the Display button until your choice of date, alarm, or temp displays.

To turn the back light ON/OFF press the Snooze button.

If none of this works use a paperclip to press the RESET pin underneath the battery compartment's cover and try again.

My bose wave radio 1 somehow switched to military time. There is no clock set button?

Not explicily, but on page 18 of the manual (Bose.com) clock setting is explained...

To set AM/PM (12 hour) or Military (24 hour) time - Press the On/Off button once to turn your Wave radio off.


Press and hold Clock Set, and then press On/Off to switch between AM/PM (12 HR) or military (24 HR) formats

We have an Aiwa clock radio (NSX 3500). We are having trouble setting the wake-up time. How do we find "military time" or maybe better eliminate the problem. We set the alarm and it doesn't...

On a 24-hour clock, 8 AM is 0800. 2000 is 8 PM.

Obviously, you have managed to set the clock with an offset of 12 hours or have the wrong time zone. Some systems may use Universal Time (UTC) with the 24 hour clock. To find a local time in the military time, you add 12 to the hour for any time after noon. Thus 2 PM = 1400 and 4 PM = 1600. To convert from UTC, try this converter: https://www.worldtimeserver.com/current_time_in_UTC.aspx .

I hope you can reset your clock with this information.

Clock is in military time mode. How do I reset to regular? Also I want to preset radio stations and I've lost my manual.

Here is your manual in PDF format:

http://www.bose.co.uk/GB/en/images/Wave%20Radio%20CD_tcm6-4104.pdf

To set AM/PM (12 hour) or Military (24 hour) time - With the system off, hold down Alarm Setup and press On/Off to switch between AM/PM (12 hour) and Military (24 hour) time formats.

To preset up to 6 AM and 6 FM stations - Use the Track/Tune buttons to find the desired station. Then, on the control panel only, hold down any Preset button until the preset number lights. The station is now preset to that number.
