Question about Bose Wave Radio

1 Answer

Bose wave radio intermittently powering off/losing volume

We listen to our tv through our bose wave radio (top load). The radio/CD features continue to work well. However, when we listen to the tv through it, the volume has been getting lower and lower (we used to set it at 65, now 80+). It has gotten worse over time and now it intermittently powers down for no reason. Thoughts???

SOURCE: Bose Wave radio humming noise

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.

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.

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.

Bose radio on but no sound


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.

Is it normal that comfortable listening is at 25-30 volume setting on bose radio; radio hardly audible until volume setting 8/9 is reached


It is possible that different people have different hearing capacity. If 25-30 does the job, be happy. Nothing wrong.

One speaker doesn't work on my bose wave radio/cd?


I can only get one speaker to work continuously. The other works intermittently. If I move the power cord a bit, I can sometimes to get the one "bad" speaker to work. When it's working, the speaker sounds fine. This is driving me crazy. The power cord is new, so I think it has something to do with the power supply. The unit is a '95 Bose Acoustic Wave CD-2000.

Bose Wave Radio/CD bad static and occasional "pop"


Hi, When you change the Aux turn the radio off. Then turn it back on. As for the static move the radio to another plug or to a different room. If you have floresecent lighting it may do that too.
The cord acts like an antenna so don't bundle the cord. Good luck.

I have one of the old top-loading wave cd/radios. Last night there was a crackling sound inside and then there was a bang internally and a very small amount of smoke and power failed and it went off. There...


Bose will replace this older top-loading CD WAVE model with a newer one for $200 plus $10 shipping. It's a fairly decent deal, considering a new system is $500. Call Bose Service at 800-637-8781

My Bose wave radio/cd player has an annoying buzzing sound. what could that be? I can't even listen to the radio or cd player


Your problem is likely a bad capacitor in the power supply. Unfortunately though, Bose does not release their parts lists or schematics, effectively creating a monopoly for parts and repairs. In fact, their web site says that the Bose factory is the only option for service or repair. They used to list a flat rate repair charge on the web site, but removed it - probably because it scared too many people. Their troubleshooting guide (below) might help, but it's very simplistic.

Before you invest in expensive factory repair on one of these trouble prone sets, you might want to investigate the new HD radios -- better sound at a MUCH lower price.

Bose wave radio/cd often cd spins but does not play, sometines will correct if I turn unit off and on. HELP tHANKS


I've repaired about 10 type Bose AWRC3x (the radio/cd model with lift up lid and top controls). If the cd won't play or skips, try cleaning the lens VERY carefully with a cotton bud with some isopropyl alcohol. Let it dry then try again. This will help in about 1/3 of cases.

After that, a new laser unit is needed. They cost around 15 pounds,30 dollars, (Type SFP100s with 13 pin connector made by Sanyo). You need to have some electronics experience to take the case to bits to get the laser deck out, change the cd laser and reassemble. Basically, DISCONNECT THE POWER! Remove the 3 screws on top, turn over and carefully prise the front of the base away from the top cover with a table knife or similar. Lift off the top cover - be careful with the lid ribbon! The deck can be disconnected from its ribbon cable and wired connector very carefully. Take the deck to bits and fit the new laser head (take photos if you think it will help). Remember to unsolder the shorting 'blob' of solder which protects the new laser from static till its fitted.

On the bright side, there is no tracking etc to set up, that's all automatic so usually they work like new with a new laser fitted. I have to say this is the weakest feature on the Bose CD radio, the actual electronics rarely gives trouble.

Hope this helps Steve O'Donnell
