Disc changer not working correctly

I packed this disc changer away for a couple years. Now, I unpacked it and hooked it up and it doesn't work correctly. The problem is the disc carosel(sp) doesn't match up with the number the machine indicates. for example, the machine has the readout as disc 132, and when you look at the physical carosel, it shows 63. bottom line, it won't play any CD's in this condition. help?

SOURCE: CD player will cycle through all 5 discs and then show "No Disc"

HI. the main board is ok. this is the actions of a malfunctioning optical lens assembly. the lens is unable to read, due to the damage to its structure or, the laser has burned out.

The main board is programed to issue the (no disk) alert if the lens doesn't relay audio data. simply replacing the failed optical lens assembly will fix this issue.

SOURCE: CD player will not play burned Cd's anymore after 5 years of work

If it has been playing CD's for over 5 years (really reliable CD player.) then I'd think it's had it's life, it needs to rest now. Meaning it's dead so you either get a replacement or a get a new CD player.

This is what happened to my mum by the way. ;)

Take the cover off and inspect for a jammed disc.

If there are no jammed discs you either have a broken belt or stripped gear.

You will have to take the unit apart and inspect, belts are commercially available from electronic stores and are a cheap easy fix!

Let me know if you need more details or guidance.

How do I install the xl-f245

You connect it to the amp as either a CD or "Other" device. Hooking it to the speakers would produce no sound.

You need to pull the CD player and remove the lid to access your discs. They're great units and once you get unjammed it should be good to go.

I have a model sl-pd847 and experience similar problems to many other submitters. I checked the main pcb and found discolouration around what appear to be 2 (power?) transistors and probably a voltage regulator. After about 4-5 minutes after switch on these get really hot. I suspect that may be the reason why it doesn't work anymore. Worth fixing? I don't think so. This one didn't even play CD-R let alone CD-RW! Get something a bit more up to date I say.

The Bose Wave System was very expensive, and should be at least checked with someone that can give an honest assessment. It is possible the Laser Pickup Assembly may need a good cleaning, if it works you can enjoy more time with it. If it fails then it is a matter of choice.

Bose multi cd changer wont work, reads "Disc error"

I think there may be a problem with the system (defective parts) - I, too, am having this issue. I am going to contact the BBB - maybe if enough of us complain we will get a recall. To file a complaint:

Disc gets jammed mid-way between CD magazine slot and inside player

Thats alot of disc this ubit holds. 110+1!! The CD changer arm mechanism sounds like is out of timming or the gears have slipped there teeth, and or the cam is broken, or theres a couple of small microswitches that can get broken as well.. The only way to work on this unit and see what the problem is, is to get a service manual and go through the mechanical alighnment and see where the problem is. Unless you can do a physical examination and know where every lob and gear is suppose to be, I do not see any other ways.
