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.

  • Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug it back in

  • Make sure you’re pointing the remote directly at your Wave® music system. If the system is placed above table-top height, be sure to angle the remote upward while pointing

  • Check for possible sources of interference with the remote’s infrared (IR) signal, such as bright lights or solar glare off of a window. Make sure nothing is blocking the path of the signal from the remote to the Wave® music system display. The remote will not work properly if there is something directly in front of the display

  • Wipe off the small clear lens on the front end of the remote

  • The remote is designed to work within 20' of the system. Greater distance may cause intermittent response

Make sure you haven't pushed the Mute button on the remote by mistake. Push it again or the Volume^ button to release mute. Also make sure the radio isn't on CD or AUX. Push the Radio button to return it to radio listening.

Do you mean keep it from going dim in a dark room? The settings menu has "Bright Hi" and "Bright Lo" adjustments you can make in ranges from 1-8 (Lo) and 8-10 (Hi). Check your manual under the heading "The setup menu" for very clear instructions.

Try unplugging the power cord for 10 seconds and plugging it back in. This will reset the radio. Also make sure the batter in your remote control hasn't died on you.

The Bose uses its power cord as an FM antenna. Make sure it's reasonably stretched out (not coiled), and is not in surroundings that shield it from the outside (a steel frame building, though even here putting it close to a window can give you reception). If this isn't enough to get stations clearly, there is a jack on the back of the radio where you can plug in a dipole (piece of wire) antenna available from Bose -- not cheap for what it is -- an indoor antenna from Radio Shack or a similar store, or even a roof-mounted unit. If you don't buy from Bose, you'll need an adapter to convert from the standard plug everyone else uses to the phone jack Bose has decided to use instead. Radio Shack sells one: catalog 278-257.

When you're setting the alarm you should be able to choose any of the stations programmed into your radio. Just press radio to choose radio for the wakeup, and press one of the presets. You can also set the volume at which it comes on.

There's a setting to turn the touchpad on or off. Yours has probably been turned off. Here's how to turn it on.
1. Press and hold Alarm Setup (Menu) on your remote until -SETUP MENU- appears in the display.
2. Press Tune/MP3 until TOUCH PAD- is displayed (8 presses)
3. Press Time- or Time+ to select OFF or ON
4. Press Alarm Setup (Menu) to exit the menu, or simply wait 10 seconds.
You're done!

First make sure you haven't selected Aux or CD by mistake. Push the Radio button on the remote and try to tune. If that doesn't work, try unplugging the power cord. Wait 10 seconds, then plug it back in. This resets the system, which may fix your problem.

The Bose Wave Radio has two brightness levels: Bright Hi (with a range of 8-15, and default of 10) and Bright Lo (1-8, default 4). The radio automatically goes from Hi to Lo when a room is darkened so the display doesn't interfere with sleep.
On recent models you can reset the defaults to make the display brighter or dimmer in both Hi and Lo levels.
1. Press and hold the Alarm Setup (Menu) button on your remote until -setup menu- appears in the display.
2. Then press the Tune/MP3 button until Bright Hi- appears. Use the Time - or Time + buttons to change the settings.
3. Go to Bright Lo- and adjust that setting too if necessary.
4. Press Alarm Setup (Menu) again to exit setup, or simply wait 10 seconds.
You're done! Note that if you set both Hi and Lo to 8, the brightness will stay the same all day and night.

I had trouble with my wave radio. It stopped working. I took it to the Bose store and they gave me a GOOD credit towards a new one. I had the Bose Wave radio and I upgraded to the Wave CD.

These radios suffer from several problems. One is the caps need replacement, which causes all kind s of problems, another is the power supply which seems to be easily broken upon voltage spikes. It goes on. Very expensive radio but to many problems. Can be repaired. Let me know if you want to sell it.

You will have to take the unit apart, and you likely have a bad sensor or laser

I am not sure how to fix your radio; but my wave radio wasn't working and I took it into a Bose store and got an excellent trade in for a new one. I traded a wave radio without a CD player for a new Wave radio with a CD player. I would take your radio into the nearest Bose store.
