Our 2006 Wave Music system is not turning on. When I press the “ON” button on the remote, a “please wait” message appears on the screen after which nothing happens. Can anyone tell me what’s wrong?

The Bose Wave Music Systems used surface mount capacitors that are failing after 15 years. I had a similar problem with my Bose Wave II AWRCC1. I ended up replacing many of the caps inside and now my Bose system is like new. I document what I did on YouTube.
I have got rid of 30 year old sound system (tuner, tape deck, CD, turntable) and moved CDs to my study (3mx3m) and am looking for something to play CDs in study sometimes but mostly in other room (s) or outside or in garage. Also gradually putting CDs into laptop and on stick. Is Bose Wave SoundTouch IV suitable? I expect I will need a separate speaker for use away from the study. Not fanatical about sound. Reasonable quality will do. Which speaker? Am I looking at the right product or is there a cheaper or other option? Jack

We like to leave our radio on when we go away on holidays. Unfortunately the radio goes off after a while. Why is that ?
Hi. I recently ordered a new remote for my mother, since the old one appeared not to be working. I just need someone to tell me how to test the new one, since my mother isn't able to and I've never used this system before. So it's got a new battery. Now what do I do? I do know this sounds crazy, but my mother is 89, gets very confused and it's honestly easier to ask you! Thanks. Alex

I have a very old Bose Box Acoustic Wave ....mid early 1990's that has been reconditioned by Bose. It still is super and has a killer sound. Is there an adapter that can be used to have it function also as a Blue Tooth system?
i have bose acustic wave music system II, the stored of channel radio, oftenly changed random, anyone can help me ??
I wish I could. Unfortunately these products are riddled with glitches and problems. I’ve recently been listening to pre-set radio stations on a very reliable WiFi network. No outages and no problems on the WiFi network. My BOSE speaker decided the music will stop. The message ‘connecting to network’ has been showing for the last 10 minutes! Never ending problems. Bye bye BOSE!
bose model jb5279 acoustic wave radio can a 5cd changer with the date 2010 connect to it the date on the jb5279 series is 1994?
Is the bose acoustic 5 cd changer able to work with the bose wave radio model awr1?
I really don't know about this - my Bose Wave is a single CD unit and I've never tried connecting it to any other device. If your CD changer and Wave are later models, I would think you'd be able to bluetooth them; however, I suggest you contact Bose direct for accurate information. Hope that helps
Cant get the cd out, what do I do?
You could unplug the radio and when you plug it in, it might eject the cd - or, when you plugin try to hit the eject button multiple times. If this is a mechanical problem though, you might very well be facing a disassembly of the radio. Which you should only do if you know what you are doing :)
I have an original sound wave radio which I purchased in 1993. In the last year the base has completely gone whilst the treble still works perfectly. Is this a terminal issue or can it be fixed, if so who would be qualified to do so and what parts would need replacing.
I live in A.C.T. and technicians here are quite scarce. There are BOSE distributors/agents in most capital cities. The local BOSE store should be able to point you in right direction. Although you must bear in mind today's attitude is replace not repair,so don't expect a lot of positive actions.
I am not completely clear on this, but the service manual suggests that the two audio channels of the TDA7376 are used on a different EQ setup, respectively. If this is the case, maybe one of the speakers stopped working? On my AWRCC4 unit, the two speakers sound the same both left and right.
There might also be a problem with the amplifier chip, or the equalizer chip (connected to it) -- or even the power supply part that feeds the power amplifier. If you know what you are doing and on your own risk, you could open the cover and unplug one after another of the two speaker cables you will see. This way you can tell if it has anything to do with the two audio channels.
