When I turn on...

When I turn on my Bose wave radio the only sound is a very loud buzz. Even when I use other outlets, it still buzzes. Can this be repaired?

Technician's Assistant: What device or product has sound issues?

Yes

Technician's Assistant: What Bose product do you have?

A Bose wave radio model AWR1-1W

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Bose product?

I had it probably over 10 years and I use it basically in the morning to listen to the radio

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

IF this can be repaired, where do I go?

I still need help since I never received a reply. My Bose wave radio does not work because when you put it on, the only sound that comes out of it is a very loud static and buzzing noise. If it can be repaired, I'm looking to know where to take it or send it.

Have you tried it in different rooms?

Unfortunately, the radio is too old for Bose to repair it since it would not be worth the cost of repair. You can buy the same radio on eBay for $80 right now and the cost to have it repaired locally would be over $100.

I am not an eBay user. Do you have any knowledge as to where to send it out for repair and yes, it is old.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
If you have no knowledge as to where to send it, I'll ask my daughter to look into eBay.

No, there isn't a place to send it due to the age. Usually, it goes back to Bose but not for that old of a unit so you have to find someone locally who can repair it.
