I took my wave radio to the bose store, all they could say was they would look at it for $70 and fix it for probably $200. I opted to buy an iphone dock for $350 .. now I still have my much loved clock radio and don't know what to do with it ..seems like a waste to throw it away
1. Body ground problems
2. Need to make a voltage drop on each grounds in the entire truck or unplug each one of them clean with a file(not sandpaper it leaves residue) and add a star washer.
Explanation; Radio waves are very sensitive. The grounds kill the over waves or what they call parasite waves. By cleaning the grounds it will help to kill the noise wave. Or install a noise suppressor on the + wire of the radio.
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!
Had the same problem on the same machine 15 or so years ago...took it to the Bose factory shop in Framingham (or real close )Massachusetts, and they fixed it in 20 minutes...cost around $50...at the time they said it was a real common problem, and an easy fix.
The Bose engineers in their "infinite" wisdom developed a $300 radio with no, that is NO, tone control. This means the only way to tune bass response is to reposition the Wave radio itself. If you put it in a corner of a room, it will produce the most bass. If it is only against one wall, not so much bass. To reduce bass response to a minimum, you would have to suspend the device from a wire in the middle of the room. Good luck. I would never buy a radio without a tone control; I literally inherited by Bose Wave Radio and use external speakers which do have tone controls.
Sounds like the audio transformer, but it's difficult to tell because Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of these sets. On their web
site, www.bose.com, they offer to repair most Wave sets for $100 or
give $200 credit towards the purchase of a new Wave. Before you spend
the big bucks though, you might want to check out the new HD radios.
Better sound and MUCH lower prices than the Bose.
