Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

"Does not work" means that the Bose radio does not produce any sound on any channel, nor even static when the volume is turned up, I presume?

Does the clock part work?

And, does it produce anything on AM, or FM (try both) ?
