Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a BOSE SERIES III CD-3000 Wave. The remote stopped working. I tried a new battery which did not help, purchased a used remote which didn't work, then tried a new battery again. It worked once.

It was manufactured in 1999. Serial # AW110AU284326. Can the unit be reset. The remote is very basic. Thanks. Paul

Testimonial: "Hi Franco, Thanks for the manual, but I downloaded it already. The problem is that the Bose remote stopped working, worked again, and now stopped once more. I put new batteries in more than once to be sure but still no luck. I'll try Bose. Thanks again. Paul"

    Hello Paul, thanks for your comments
    Try cleaning the contacts of the battery, sometimes an oxide is formed, which isolates the contacts, also test if the remote control is emitting, take the cell phone and put it in camera mode, point the emitting LED of the remote control to the camera, you should see that lights up every time you press a key
    I hope you can solve the problem

    Hola Paul, gracias por tus comentarios
    Prueba limpiar los contactos de la pila, hay veces se forma un oxido, que a?sla los contactos, tambi?n prueba si el control remoto esta emitiendo, toma el celular y ponlo en modo c?mara, apunta el Led emisor del control remoto hacia la c?mara, deber?as ver que se ilumina cada vez que presiones una tecla
    Espero que puedas resolver el problema
    Saludos Franco Dosil

Bose music system remote is inconsistent.

The notoriously unreliable SMD capacitors which Bose installed are long defective. That's just the start of your problems.

You'll need to replace those defective capacitors with much higher-quality units than the original.

Only a tech experienced with SMD work should attempt this repair.

Replacing the PCB will solve your problem for only a short time, as you are just getting the original standard junk again, but new.

No sound Bose wave

I took mine back to the Bose store and they gave me credit on my Wave that was about ten years old toward a new CD wave radio. I would recommend taking it to the Bose store and see what they can do for you.

I own Wave Redio/CD. My new remote is Wave Music System and does not work. Why not?

The Bose Wave Radio and Wave Music System use different IR codes. It is no other reason other than Bose made the remotes incompatible. This is often done to prevent interferance with systems that may be close to each other.

My Bose Lifestyle 28 III system is about 2 1/2 years old. The remote has just stopped working---nothing at all. I have tried 4 sets of new batteries and still no luck. Any suggestions besides purchasing a...

A new remote is the simplest and best bet. I know of no way to repair a remote without making it irreparable. Though you might check the infrared LED i the front. Does the light on the remote illuminate when you press a button?(assuming it has that.)

Can the new 5 cd changer work with the older Bose

It will work as a manually-operated AUX input, but since there was no remote for the original system so that function won't be available.

Remote control of Bose WaveMusicSystem

First have the remote tested. You can buy a basic Infra-red tester at Radioshack for about $6. If the remote is putting out signal, the Bose will have to be serviced. Call them and get an RMA # and they will fix it for a flat rate.
