Could be the classic dirty lense syndrom... If you know how to get to it, expose the laser lense, and gently brush any accumulated dust/dirt from it. There might be multiple slots, but only 1 lense. If you have a cd cleaner available you might want to try that out first, it doesn't always do the same job, but it can save you the risk of something else happening when you open it up. Good luck

The last 3 discs might be CD-RW which can be rewritten, but not all cd players will be able to read them. Just go to the store and buy some CD-R disks and re-burn the last 3 disks. That should solve your problem.

The CD player does hardly read self- burnt audio CDs although every one of my other cheap Players i have at home or in the car can read them.

The answer depends upon the age and precise version of your Bose system. Not all CD players can reliably read CD-R and CD-RW discs, and even those which do are sometimes picky about the brand of recordable disc in use.

In my experience, all of the Bose Wave systems I've worked on have contained surprisingly cheap/average parts inside considering the luxury price-tag. Either stick to using other cheaper (and often far better) CD players for CDs you've burned yourself, or look into getting the CD laser pick up inside your Bose replaced with one which is known to have no issues with CDs of different reflectivity to standard pre-recorded CDs.

Panasonic CD player model #SC-EN7: CD will not play, keeps saying "reading disc", but the disc does not spin, the transverse deck has been replaced with no change in status.

There may be dust inside the unit on the laser. Try shoting some compressed air in the CD drive area to clean out. Also, ensure that the CD surface is clean, and try a different factory made audio CD. Sometimes CD players have problems reading "burned" CD's.

My front loader reads disc error or unplayable no matter what disc I insert. It worked just fine for about 2 years. It doesn ot get heavy cd use, but everyday radio/alarm use.

To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
  • The Wave® music system is designed to play commercial CDs, CD-Rs, MP3-encoded CDS and CD-RWs. If your system has trouble playing MP3 CDs, make sure the discs were recorded with compatible formats. See Cannot play MP3 CDs

  • The system may not be able to play certain CD-RW discs. Playability is dependant on how the disc was recorded, including the format it was recorded in and the actual disc used for recording.
    Note: iTunes defaults to AAC as the encoding format. In order to use iTunes to make CDs that will play on the Wave® music system, you’ll need to change the format to MP3 How to Choose Import Options

  • Different brands of CD-Rs and CD-RWs use different materials which may affect the ability of a player to read them. If you are burning your own CD-Rs or CD-RWs, experiment with different brands of discs

  • If a commercial disc won’t play, check for scratches, fingerprints or other physical damage. Try the CD in another player. If it still won’t play, there may be a problem with the disc

  • Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug the system back in

CD playing erratic

Run a "Laser Lens Cleaner" thru the unit a couple times. Use one that takes fluid, you can find them at just about any retail store for 15-20. If that doesn't solve it, it needs to be repaired. At that point weigh the cost over replacement. A new transport usually will cost 100-150 on average for parts and labor. Hope this helps

Xplod cd player reads Err 99 and wont accept cd

I had the same problem.
i fix it by taking out the cd player and pulling the outer case off. when i looked inside and the (in technical terms) metal bracket that holds the white plastic disc (that i guess holds the cds) inside the cd player was bent down. i am assuming that cds were hitting this when i tried to insert them! i just bent it back up using a knife from the outside. i bent it up until the white disc looked level.
good luck

First, you should never use commercial cleaners on CDs or cassette heads. They can create more problems than cures.
