How do I change lens on Bose Wave CD player

You need to buy the correct replacement lens - usually on ebay is a good selection. Keywords - Bose Laser. Email the seller, and ask for help to identify which lens you need.

Then disassemble your machine, and install the new lens.

If that's too complicated for you, have a local technician do the work.

Why won't my bose wave radio will not recognize the 3 disc changer?

I had trouble with my wave radio. It stopped working. I took it to the Bose store and they gave me a GOOD credit towards a new one. I had the Bose Wave radio and I upgraded to the Wave CD.

My bose lifestyle 48 system suddenly stopped playing new there a problem with the head..I bought it only in 2008

is the discs just spinning and then stopping when you put them in the drive?
there may be a chance that the lens might just needs cleaned. suggest a dvd lens cleaner but on the down side there is a strong possibility it may be a faulty lens. dvd players aren't built to last.
always clean the dvd player from dust and keep in an open space.

The multi disc player doesn't play the disc and reads "disc error"

The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, overtime the laser becomes weaker until it reaches a point it can not track the cd. One option is to purchase a disc cleaning kit to clean the laser lens, that might get it working again. If that fails! I recommend contacting Bose for service because they do not authorize anybody outside of their facility.

Sometimes my Bose cd player works and sometimes it doesn't. Why? Where should I have it repaired?A

The problem is in the laser pickup, overtime the laser becomes weak and in some cases will skip or play the odd cd. It is possible the laser lens is dirty and needs to be cleaned, a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol will sometimes bring it back to full operation. "if you can reach it" Dip the Q-Tip in the alcohol and very gently clean in a circular motion, use a fresh Q-Tip to dry off, if no change contact for customer support and ask for technical assistance, since this is a high end product it should be serviced by the people who make it because they have direct access to the parts.

Jumping and skipping


Ok, it sounds to me like the laser lens is dirty, the easiest and cheapest sollution is to buy a cd laser lens cleaner.

This is actually a cd which you insert into the cd trey and it will clean the laer lens in the player. Hope this can help.

Kind Regards

When using my 5disc cd player it keeps skipping and causing static intermitingly.The cd's are new and play fine on my small BOSE with only one cd unit.What do I do??? ngly

First thing I'd try is cleaning the laser with a CD / DVD lens cleaning disc. You can find them just about anywhere (Walmart, Target, Best Buy)

Just follow the instructions on the disc (basically just play it) the disc has brushes built into the bottom which will clean the laser lens automatically.

Let me know if that clears up the problem.

Bose 321 system reads bad disc on all dvds

if will not read a laser lens cleaning disc , then it will need to be opened up and the laser lens will need to be cleaned manually with the cleaning solution and a cotton tip , but do it easy and dry the lens with the cotton tip
if that don't do it then the laser mechanism will need replacing
