Question about Bose Wave Radio

Bose wave radio flashing

There is power to my Bose Wave Radio (display shows time), but it is not functioning at all. Tried replacing the battery on the little remote, but I still can't get any action. (How do I even know if the remote has become non-functional?) The only other detail is that every ten seconds or so, the time display flashes once. Is there a way to hard-reset the entire unit? Help!

Actually the problem was caused by a bad 470uf cap, that was used to filter the powersupply for all the analog amps. Replaced the cap the unit works like new.

Unplug and plug back in. It should go through a automatic process, ejecting any discs that are inside. If all you hear is a mechanical noise, try this again only with the disc trays facing the ceiling.

SOURCE: My 10 year old Bose wave radio quit working.

There's a line fuse inside the radio, mounted on a PC board. CAUTION: disconnect the set from power before opening the case or poking around inside. The fuse could be bad, but these sets are notorious for losing the power transformer. If the fuse is ok then you are looking at a $100 repair fee from Bose. You might want to check out the new HD radios -- better sound, MUCH lower price.

SOURCE: Bose wave radio won't turn on

Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monpoly on repair of these units. Their web site, www.bose.com, offers to repair most Wave radios for $100 or to provide a $200 allowance towards purchase of a new Wave. Before you spend the big bucks on theis trouble-prone product though, you might want to check out the new HD radios -- better sound and MUCH lower prices than Bose.

SOURCE: Bose Wave Radio AWR1 1W

I can tell you what to check if you know how to use an ohmmeter. But I warn you you could get shocked if you do not know what you are doing. The transformer has 3 windings, two are for DC voltages, and the other is 3V AC.Your meter can measure those using the AC scale. Next, check the voltage on the 3 terminal regulator IC. One leg will have 18V, the output will have 10V. Again please use CAUTION! Finally, the to-92 transistor Q1 is used as a 5V regulator. Check it (with power off and unplugged) for any shorts, especially base-emitter. If non of these ideas work, I would offer to buy your non working unit if you decide to get rid of it.

Bose radio will not turn on


You didn't mention which model of the Wave Radio you have but since you have a 9V battery it narrows it down to a couple of models. You might want to check the Q4 transistor (2SC3792) for a short on the two outide pins. With the power disconnected, measure with a multimeter the resistance between the two outside pins of the Q4 transistor. If you measure anything between 0-3 ohms it is shorted. Replace this part with a similar part or you could replace it with the new Bose recommended part - 2SD438F-MP-E but it is very hard to obtain. I have used an 2SC2655 instead and had no problems so far with the radio. This radio also came in totally dead with no display nor the radio working.

Yes you have a defective laser assembly. The 139 is a great price as buying the laser lens alone will cost you around 70 .Bose will also upgrade with any new software and will also provide you with a 1 yr warrenty.
