How to Adjust a Bose Night Light
By Thomas McNish
The Bose Wave Music System plays music from your CDs or MP3s. Although the home audio system is relatively compact, the quality of sound it produces has been recognized as excellent by electronic consumer reviewers such as Cnet, and has received the coveted Red Dot Award twice. One feature of the Bose Wave radio is that it has an alarm clock that you can set to go off with your music. The alarm clock light, or night light, is, unfortunately, set to adjust to the brightness of the room, so you may not be happy with its setting. Luckily, there's a quick and simple process that will allow you to manually adjust the strength of the light.
Turn your Bose Wave radio off, unplug it and take it into a well-lit room. If you're already in a well-lit room, you must still turn the Bose radio off for several seconds before you begin to adjust the night light dimmer levels.
Turn the Bose back on and hold down the CD mode button for three seconds. Press the "Up" or "Down" volume buttons to adjust the strength of the night light. Adjust the setting somewhere between five and nine to compensate for the bright lights.
Turn the Bose off again and take it to a very dimly lit room. After turning it back on, press and hold the CD mode button for three seconds. Press the "Up" or "Down" volume buttons to adjust the strength of the night light. Adjust the setting somewhere between one and five to compensate for the lack of light.
Set both settings to five if you don't want there to be any change whatsoever in the adjustment of the night light.
