Re: can't eject cds

I had this problem, and was able to solve it by holding the unit (carefully) so that the CD slot faces the floor, then pushing the eject button. Gravity acted to eject one CD, then the other.

Re: can't eject cds

Hi Doug I had the same problem and have just managed to pull the offending cd out by improvising a long hook. I hooked it on to the central hole in the cd and just gently pulled it out. Jimmy

If you un plug the unit for 2 hours and after that you hold down the cd in button whille you plug it in until it says cd reset and it should pop it right out

My bose CD player is not working my cd are stuck I don,t why

Good luck this should do it.

If you have a cd or two stuck in your Bose wave radio, here's how to remove it and save yourself $99. This procedure is for the radio (model AWRCC1 or similar) with a single front loading cd slot.
1. First unplug the power, wait a minute, and then replug power, watching the front display.
2. The display will read "Ejecting". If the cd ejects, then you're done and can skip Part II. If it doesn't eject and/or it displays "Disk error" then you'll need to do the Part II steps.
1. Unplug the power cord.
2. Turn the radio upside down with the front facing you.
3. Remove the 5 screws from the bottom plate.
4. Hinge the front of the bottom plate up no more than 2". Don't overdo this or you'll damage various ribbon cables inside. Use extra hands or a prop to keep it open this amount.
5. Reach inside and tilt-up the front of cd player's metal housing just enough to access the rims of the cd(s) within the space created in step 4.
6. Pinch the rim(s) of the cd(s) and gently pull it/them out.
7. Reverse these steps to reassemble your radio.
Enjoy your cd player again!

Cd is stuck inside i have unplugged & plugged and pressed eject & power at the same time

Some CD players have a tiny hole on the door or tray that slides out. Stick a paperclip in the hole and it will release the tray. Yours may not have this, but it has to have some manual way of opening.

Keeps rejecting any cd inserted spittinf it out

The CDs you inseting is not loading properly into the mechanism. Check its loading belt. If loading belt is loose, thie tyep of fault will occur. Check the loading motor also. If the pulling power of loading motor go less, the discs will not load properly and will ejected out as it loaded into. There is no other possiblilities other than this to check. OK.

A cd is stuck in the player, will not eject, and the display says "no disc". How do I get the disc out?

If the tray does not open the only way to get this out is opening the unit up. Many times the hat gets stuck thus the tray does nto open. So the only way that disc is going to come out of that unit is by manual extraction.

Thanks and please do be considerate and leave a rating and feedback

I bought the cd changer with my unit & two cds are stuck in it. This happened the third time I used the unit.


this is a mechanism problem. Also, maybe something might have hooked the cd tray and made it stuck.

What you have to do now is to open the player by unscrewing the cover, so that you can gain access to the mechanism inside the player.

After you must have opened the cover, plug the cd changer to light, power it on and use you hand to pull out the tray while you press open button.

Also make observations on the disc tray while you press the open button and check the disc tray and look for what is making it stuck and refuse to open. This is why you need use your hand to support the disc tray by pushing it open from the inside.

I wish you good luck.
