Wave Radio / CD no longer responding to remote
I think the issue / solution here is pretty clear, but thought I'd see if there are any other alternatives. This is an original Wave unit, purchased new 12 years ago (and first problem I've ever had with it).
I think the receiving unit on my Bose died. It tells time fine, but does not respond to any button pressed on the remote.
Now, before you say the obvious: I did install a new battery in the remote, AND I verified the remote is transmitting via two methods: I have one of those IR-sensitive cards that you can point any remote at and see the flashes, and also using my iPhone (if you use the forward-facing "selfie" camera and point the remote at it in a dark room you can see the flashes there too). Whether or not the remote is sending scrambled messages I cannot verify, but as this is not a programmable-type remote I figured those were hard coded and not likely to be corrupted.
So, given that I can see the remote is transmitting, does anyone think it's worth still buying another spare remote, or can I safely assume it's the receiver? If the latter, does Bose have any repair services, or am I destined to buy a whole new one?
This has some sentimental value: my wife purchased it new as a gift for my 40th birthday.
