Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check it battery contacts, inside its battery compartment for any rust or dust accumulated, which prevents the electrical contacts. If all are found OK, you remote control need cleaning. To clean it, you have to open it. If you wish to know more details about how to clean and check a remote control, check this link.

The applicable code(s) would be in the URC, if it is compatible. Use code search to find out.

I am not an expert in such things but taking a flying guess and offering some sensible (I think) advice. You shouldn't attempt to repair such an item without a service sheet or service manual and suitable test equipment. I suspect the power supply or part of the supply could be switch-mode or inverter type requiring an oscilloscope for testing. The radio is as much computer as it is radio and will undoubtedly contain sensitive CMOS circuits that are easily damaged and random prodding with test leads definitely isn't wise. You have a premium piece of gear there, probably one of the most expensive radio alarm clocks on the market that few ordinary folk would buy. It would be best to entrust repairs to an approved dealer or to enquire if Bose have a fixed price exchange scheme...

I have the Bose Solo 10 and it did the same as yours. I did all of the suggested fixes and nothing worked. I changed out the IR sensor and it worked for a while and it went out again.I'm an electronic engineer so I unplugged it and did the reset and got the acknowledgement tone. That told me the the units power supply and electronics was good because it does a self check when you reset it. I took the IR board and did a bench test on it. The board worked on the bench. When I put it back in I checked the voltage on pin 7 of the IR sensor, no voltage. I checked the voltage on the main PCB and I had 3.2volts. Checked the ribbon connector and the voltage was getting to the connector on the IR board but it had a bad connection from the ribbon to the board. I put a jumper from the ribbon to the IR board and it's been working all day with no problem. I checked and a lot of people are having the same problem the we experienced. Bose should have a recall on the connector on the IR board because you cannot turn this unit on manually. When you have this problem you can't anything with this unit because it is too big for a paper weight.

Have the remote tested--shops use a card when remote is pointed at it and buttons pressed a strip on the card lights if remote is sending.

Many digital cameras will react in same way in a dark room with a flash on their display cases.

In our shop we fix a lot of remotes and usual cost is under 10 dollars.
