Wave Radio / CD AWRC1G Remote Suddenly Stopped Working
I've got a Wave Radio / CD AWRC1G that worked like a charm until just recently when the remote suddenly went dead. No warning or indication whatsoever; 1 day it worked perfectly and the next day it didn't. I've been troubleshooting with Bose tech support for 3 sessions now; they've sent me 2 new remotes and the unit has been turned off and on (with the backup battery removed) numerous times but no luck so they finally gave up. I even took the case off and checked to be sure all the ribbon cables were secure and that nothing was blocking the "electric eye" (sensor) just in case that might be the problem, but it wasn't. The tech support girl said it was too old to send in for repairs and that she'd never seen anything like it before, since the manual controls on top work flawlessly (as does everything else on the unit) but this is a "bedroom Bose" so it's a nightmare having to get up and walk across the room (often in the dark) to operate the thing. Can anybody postulate a guess as to what would cause this to happen, literally overnight? The unit is up on a shelf and has not been subject to any sort of fall, spilled liquids, etc. I hate like the Devil to get a new one because this one works so well otherwise but the lack of a remote is killing me. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
