WAVE radio transformer bad ???

If you can check ohms,you can also read volts. Open the radio again and look for DC volts on the rectifiers capacitors.They look like :cans", normally the color is blue. Check for positive dc v. against chassis ground. If no + tension,your rectifier or your secondary are open.

Non-working CD in Bose wave radio

Try replacing the battery on the bottom of the system - alot of people miss it because you have it constantly plugged into the mains, but replacing this (somehow) re-sets the system, and 9 times out of 10 solves the issue.

Left earbud problems

Well, I had the same problem with the right earbud. Luckily I was under warranty with Target, so they told me to contact Bose. I did and they had me send in the headphones (to make sure I waas telling the truth) and about 2 weeks later I got my earbuds back. Their customer service is excellent, so that's what I would reccomend

Question edited for clarity. *Advice is what you are after *Advise is what I am doing :>) It appears to have a funky connection system.

Can't remove battery of remote to bose radio/cd player (won't work)

On the back of the remote there is a small hole. You need to slide the small lock in the hole over and the battery compartment should pop open. This requires something small like a straightened paper clip. You may need to coax it a little with your finger by pushing out off the end of the remote. There is a picture of this on the back of my remote. I just removed my battery so i could replace it. The battery size is CR2032.

Recently I bought a Harman Kardon HK 3770 Stereo receiver. My question is " can I use a Bose 901 Series VI speaker with this receiver?, since I plan to buy a 901 S VI speaker.. The receiver has no tap

From the description of the Harmon Kardon, it sounds like you should be able to use the speakers, but you will not be able to use the active equalizer. The equalizer is designed to be cabled into the tape monitoring loop and allows you to listen to the equalized signal coming back into the receiver. Attach the +/- speaker wires to the right and left channel speaker connectors on your receiver.

Okay I have a 2008 MacBook and my boyfriend bought

Hi.
I would get an external sound card running on either USB (minimum 2.2) or firewire. I have had problems with mac audio ports. M-audio make a good range and so do ION. You need a stereo 2 in 2 out minimum (no need to overspend unless you plaun on starting a home recording or video project).
I would check to make sure there is no kind of phase switch on the speakers in anyway first though.

All things are connected but

First question, are all the volume controls turned up, hardware and Windows. Next, hook up the speakers to a CD player, ipod, etc and make sure they work. If they don't, contact the tech support for Bose at 1-800-999-2673.
If they do work, then it might be an issue with your sound card. Check for updates and run Windows updates. Also, plug in some different speakers and see if they work, if they don't it's an issue with your sound card.
