My 25 year old Bose Radio started making a loud roaring

Customer Question
My 25 year old...

My 25 year old Bose Radio started making a loud roaring sound even though it was not turned on. Does this mean that the capacitors are "shot"? Is the situation hopeless or is a repair possible and/or cost-effective?

Technician's Assistant: What is your Bose connected to or paired with? Are all cables connected tightly?

It is not paired with anything else and all the connections are fine.

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried a different audio source (e.g. another TV, computer, or CD)?

I tried a new audio source and the radio is still "roaring".

No, The service is much too slow and I do not want to pay the $5.00 or to continue thereafter. Of course I needed help or I wouldn't have sought it out. Kindly cancel all. I do not appreciate the attempt to upcharge to a live chat. Thank you for cancelling all. Jackie *
