Amplifier chip/circuit is kaput. Unless you are familiar in fixing electronic equipments better to give it for repairs................sodeep PS. Buying a new one will not be cost effetive unless you need a change!
This could be the battery causing the display to act strangely. If the radio still works audio-wise, the following should fix the display:
The older model wave radios have either a 9v or 3 AA batteries (accessible from the bottom). Remove any battery, and reset the system by unplugging the power cord for about 40 seconds. Plug it back in without the battery attached.
If the problem goes away- replace the battery or batteries. (which is only there to hold the clock time, presets etc when not plugged in)
BTW- you'll have to set the clock, alarm, presets etc after this procedure.
If the problem doesn't go away, call Bose. I think they can repair this for $99 and/or offer a new one as a trade-in discounted.
Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of their units. If you check their web site, www.bose.com, you'll find that they will repair your unit for $100 or possibly give you $200 credit towards a new model. Before you take them up on either offer, you might want to check out the new lines of HD radios. Better souind quality, MUCH lower prices than a Bose.
