Anyone fixed a Bose Wave Radio with no sound?
Hi Everyone,
My old Bose Wave Radio, Model AWR1- 1W, recently stopped working.
At first it wouldn't power up at all. I got hold of the service manual and guessed, correctly, that a likely cause was the R6 resistor. I replaced it and that fixed the power up issue but it remains with no sound. All the displays are OK - stations, volume, clock etc. just no sound.
If you know how to fix or troubleshoot this problem I would appreciate hearing from you.
I've just joined diyaudio on a friend's suggestion. Also checked previous posts and haven't found any relevant info.

thank you.

If you can post a schematic someone may point you where to look.

Yep, we need to see the circuit details.

You have to check the basics... are all supplies present and correct and reaching their destination.

Aren't Bose products generally at their best when they don't produce any sound at all?

When they are located on the wifey's side table and stop making music, things are not at their best...

My bose aw1 radio also arrived DOA, but @ $5 I wont complain and the wife has wanted one for 20 years. Ergo I fix this one and give it to her as a B'day present if only to prove her wrong ... OK fine that's the beer talking ... OK.

Now I have the manual, except I cant edit it, and I cant post just the schematic.

Has anyone fixed this issue in a bose wave radio - no display and no sound - except for a faint hiss when plugged in and a light pop when unplugging, and none of the buttons on top, on/off, volume, channel up/down etc etc has no effect.

I will post a schematic as soon as I figure how.

I have a unit with the same problem. No display or functions but you can hear the audio amp glitch when you unplug it . Did anyone come up with the fix?
