My Bose Wave radio is about 15 years old. When turned on it roars briefly, then about 3 seconds of radio or AUX input, then no sound. I have recently replaced the batteries (which were corroded) but no improvement.Anything further to try before shipping it to you?Gerald Le Van
Make: Bose Wave
I've tried replacing the batteries and brushed off the corroded contacts. Previously had removed batteries and power cord and left it on its back overnight -- a surge remedy.

Hi Gerald,You have done all that you can do. From the symptoms you described, it appears to be a power supply problem. The "roar" is faulty voltage regulation and/or bad capacitors.The good thing about having Bose repair the unit, the completely refurbish it and update any hardware or software that has been incorporated since your purchase. Bose has Flat-rate plans include coverage for repairs (parts and labor), hardware and software upgrades, comprehensive preventative maintenance and a one-year limited warranty from the time of repair on most products and systems. Contact them at 1-877-210-3782, or you may email them XXXXX@XXXXXX.XXX - have the complete model number and serial number available.Thanks,Rod
Return my deposit. Bose has no parts and cannot repair a Wave radio of that vintage.Expert should have known that. Gerald Le Van
