Starting in Nov. 2006, the player gradually failed to read discs, taking longer and longer to start playing music. I think it also played at a different starting point than commanded, on occaison. My stereo shop sent it to two repair shops in Syracuse NY, with no success. It's a 1999 unit. Can anyone please give me advice on who might be able to fix the player and what I should expect to pay?

This can be either a dirty lens or the optics starting to fail. On very rare occasions it is the digital processing section. Try opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that failes to correct the problem, try playing a music CD. If the CD plays OK, I'd suspect that the optics are starting to fail. Reading a CD takes a lot less laser power than a CD.
Keep us posted.
The cd assembly is the issue, over a period of time the laser pickup becomes weaker until it can no longer read the disc, one possible solution is to buy a disc cleaning kit and follow instructions in an effort to recover the assembly. If that fails the only option is contact Bose for pricing since they are the only authorized service centre that work on their own products.
Yeah I ve heard many people saying this. It is mostly because either the disc is damaged or the dvd lens reader has been damaged ..that is the only way by how it says "no disc" so better check with some shop around..or with the authorized dealer itself..ok
The unit can recognize that a disc has been loaded but can not read the contents. This can be as simple as a dirty lens or more drastic like failing optics. Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails to correct the problem and a music CD will play OK, then the optics are failing. DVDs require more laser power to read than a music CD.
Since it will play eventualy, I'd suspect a dirty lens. Open up the unit and carefully clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Also, try a music CD. If the CD works flawlessly but DVDs still fail occasssionally, the optics are starting to fail and will need to be replaced.
the most likely problem is a weak or failing optical pickup. try a cleaning disc first there may be dust on the lens. do not use any liquid to clean the lens. remember this is an optical system if it can't focus properly or "see well" it can't read.
