I have a Bose Wave Music System (Model AWRCC1) and the CD player sometimes momentarily pauses while playing. Is there any thing I can do about it myself? Is it worth sending to Bose for repair (about 5...

Well, the lens light needs re-trimming, that's why it's having a hard time reading that audio CD.
The adjustment is in the LENS assembly, there is a trimmer nut under that you will have to adjust and clean. It always works on CD AUDiO player ( not on DVD ).
You could send it to Bose and have it tuned and service clean the whole unit, it is not that expensive or bring it to any electronic tech and he knows what to do.

Hope that helps!

Says all cd's r unreadable

Hi, when a cd inserted inside a cd player and it says unreadable, it means that the lens of the player is weak and can't play the cd inserted.

You can use a lens cleaner to clean it, if when you use the lens cleaner and it does not work, that means the cd lens is bad and it needs to be replaced.

Take care.

CD does not engage to play/ on/off button does not work on radio

I hope it is still under warranty and can be replaced, Bose products are littered with problems.

Pool loading of the CD can be a simple lens cleaning or a defective laser/transport.

First step is to unplug for 10 minutes then replug.

Failing that find the nearest service centre.

Hope this helps!

The cd player is not reading the discs. The read out flashes and blinks but it does not read the music off the disc.

Try removing the cover and clean glass laser eye lens with rubbing alcohol and cotton swab. If cleaning doesn't work, then laser lens circuit will need to be tested and replaced. You can use an ohmmeter to test the capacitors and circuit.
