I have a Bose Wave Radio III. The remote will no longer

Customer Question
I have a Bose...

I have a Bose Wave Radio III. The remote will no longer work, even with a new battery. I have changed the battery before, but this time I am unable to even open the back of the case to insert a new one.

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

Wave Radio III

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

I have changed the battery and then tried our Bose stereo remote and had no luck with either.

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

Can't think of anything now.
