Bose does not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively making themselves the only repair center for their products. Your only safe repair method is to contact the service/repair center at www.bose.com. They will likely offer you a flat rate repair or credit towards the purchase of a new unit.
Yes Dust can cause the problem.
If you want to try cleaning the laser optics:
1. Unplug the unit and remove the cover.
2. Locate the Cd mechanism and you should see the tray where you would normally insert the disc. Look for a glass lens about 1/4 inch in diameter ( usually a blueish tint)
3. With a cotton swab dipped in a little isopropyl alcohol (any pharmacist should have it and it is very inexpensive ) Clean the lens. You do not need a lot of alcohol and any excess will quickly evaporate.
4. Put the cover back on and give it a try
HI... You wont be able to play any new format CDs on an old Fisher or any other older make . It 's the internal decoder logic that's needed. And older players dont have it. As far as top-loaders..Do a websearch . I dont know of any.
just find a local electronic repair shop near you
look in the phone book for electronic /electronic repar shop
i have had to repair these before and the selector chip has failed because of a resistor letting to much current and voltage go into the chip , repair cost $40-$50 depending on the dammage
I have a AWM-2700U (3 disc changer) that was doing the same thing. I removed the cover and found that the laser lens for the CD player had come out of it "slot". I cleaned it with alcohol and a cotton swab and replaced it in the slot and it has worked for the past 3 months since. Hope it works for you.
I know that this sounds like a crazy solution to Pitsy`s CD problem but today i took a chance by using my lawn gas blower. First I opened the drawers of my CD turntable and also my cassett doors. I put ear plugs on and blasted the air into the openings. All i can say is it is now working fine !! Lou F.
