Main PC board
All Bose radios have
a display dimming circuit that will automatically dim the display as the
ambient room lighting gets lower. The intent is so the display doesn’t
bug you in a dark room by being to bright. Sometimes this automatic
dimming can be unpredictable as to when it will dim. If the radio is in
the kitchen or any other room besides the bedroom, you may not want the
display to dim at all. We can
disable the dimming function so the display is at full intensity all the
time. You may request this modification and there would be no additional
charges to an existing repair bill.

Wave Radio Poor FM Reception?
Customers often complain of poor FM radio reception
when sending in their radios. ALL Bose Wave radios have internal
circuits that use the AC power cord (and house wiring) as an FM antenna.
This is a convenient method to receive FM signals but has its drawbacks.
One is, it’s impossible to change your house wiring to optimize signal
level. You are limited to repositioning the power cord to improve
reception. Two, house wiring may have all kinds of undesirable signals
from other equipment, dimmers and appliances.
Wave radios also have an external FM antenna jack.
So which is better? The external jack is! An external antenna can
easily be repositioned to improve reception of your favorite radio
station. Also, an FM antenna is designed to maximize the signal level of
FM signals only. The problem is it’s not optimal to have 2 antennas on
1 radio. This will cause a mismatch with mixed results.
If you live in a metro area close to the radio
stations then the power cord antenna may work fine. You may also add an
external antenna which may help or may not. If you have difficulty
receiving a clear signal of distant stations, we can help. To maximize
the receiver sensitivity, the power cord antenna circuits inside the
radio need to be disabled. This will improve the match between the
external FM antenna jack to the tuner. Tests have shown a sizable
increase in radio sensitivity! Keep in mind if we do this modification
to your radio, you will need to have an external antenna connected for
FM reception. We have antennas available for purchase at $14.95.
This modification does not effect AM reception or any
other functions of the radio. There is no charge to do this
modification if done in conjunction with any other repair or service.
