You could try to clean the laser, with a special cleaning disk. Don't try to clean a laser by opening the player, you will damage the system.
If it is a CD burned in a PC, it also can be the laser is now a bit less, not capable reading CD-R or CD-RW, and still can read normal CD's

Why won't bose play some cds


Could it be the CDs you can't play, are burned in a PC?
Not all CD players can or will play CD's burned in a PC. Sometimes the CD player is to old, so not compatible with these CDs. Sometimes the player just does not play these CD's, because of rights protection.
A CD burned in a PC is less reflective than an normal music CD. Normal CD's do have a metal coating and are highly reflective. Burned CD's have a dye, and where the laser burned the dye, it only changed colour. Making it less reflective.
All modern CD playes should be capable of playing CD r's. But the player that is really compatible, is labelled CDr and CDrw compatible.

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.

CD's will not play. I was playing a CD with no problems and in the middle of the CD, it just quit. I tried other CDs which have worked fine in the past and now I can get nothing to read. It will say...


hi,
just purchase a lance cleaning cd. It will be available in cd shops. insert it in the player. it will clean the lance. after cleaning insert the CD and watch is it reading. If not then the laser pickup unit of you player have some problem. You have to replace the same.
ok

Cd changer is not reading disc even after it was cleaned


Please check the format of the CD. It should be commensurate with the formats which can be played by the CD Player. This information is available within the booklet which has been provided with the changer. To give you an example I purchased Bose surround system in 1998. It can only play CD's which are recorded in wma format and will not play any mp3 CD. Some of the CD players do not play re-writable CDs. Please check.

Cds won't play. have tried cleaning it with a cd


Your problem is not very uncommon in CD players.Your player is not dead, just the lens mechanism. It may be a simple error such as "out of alignment" or it may need replacement. Please be aware that the lens mechanism is the most expensive part in a CD/DVD player+ Service you can get a new player for that price. You may want to get a quote so that you can decide whether you want to get it fixed or buy another.

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:

Are these CDs burned copies?
If they are, some CD players don't read burned copies at all.

Bose Wave Music Sys & 3 CD Changer


I have had a few of these come to my shop. The gears jump out of timing causing the cd lift to jam or become unalligned. The unit will probably have to be disassembled to get the CD out or have it serviced.
