We cannot play any discs or eject them. When we press the eject button, the discs inside spin really fast and nothing seems to happen. Everything seems to be working. Please help!

DVD drawer will not open - stuck dvd inside

My only suggestion is to press and hold the eject button for a period of time (15 - 30 seconds). This might unlock the drawer. If not, I would contact Bose Customer Service directly.

"Protector" error

I had a similar problem and went to Sony tech support.

Seemed my disc got stuck somehow...

Try reseting the system by holding the STOP and the EJECT and the POWER buttons together...
It should go to demo mode....

Then try PLAY to see if you can get the system to read teh disc...
then EJECT...

It took me several trys of doing this but it did work....on the 3rd try.

Problem with stereo playing cds

I'd be interested to know the brand, but you could try this:

(Assuming your CD player has only a standby button, not a full On/off button). Unplug the CD player from the mains. Leave for 30 seconds. Connect to mains and press eject as early as possible. Hopefully, this will allow the system to eject the CD before it starts trying to spin it.

Ultimately though, if it plays but won't open, it's likely to be a cog / gear on the drawer that has failed rather than some software fault as the CD plays.

Repair may not really be economical - depends on brand / value etc. If the disc is more important than the player you might end up attacking it....

Bose Lifestyle 35 Disc Player

the motor that spins the disk has gone bad and locks up as it gets hot. It will stay locked up if you continue to use the drive. I cleaned the drive motor with a shot of CRC Lectra-Motive electric parts cleaner and that fixes it for a while but after a few DVDs it will lock up again. Long story short you will need to replace the drive unit.

Dvd-r problems

Unplug your AC power cord for a minimum of 30 seconds to clear the RAM. The RAM is used solely for dvd class history, and clearing this should solve your issue. If you want to convert your player to region free, which will allow you to play ANY dvd: 1 Disconnect your player from its power source for thirty seconds 2) Reconnect your player to its power source 3) Press the Power On button on your remote control 4) Press the Enter button on your remote control 5) Press the 8 button on your remote control 6 Press the 4 button on your remote control 7) Press the 2 button on your remote control 8) Press the 6 button on your remote control 9) Press the 9 button on your remote control 10)Press the Enter button on your remote control 11)Your player should now place itself in Standby mode 12)Press the Power On button on your remote control A word of caution if your convert your player is that disc eject issues may arise in which you will have to eject from the unit, or toggle your power switch on/off.....good luck my friend.
