    Have the same problem, it appears that 2 cd's are jammed in the play compartment. No solution short of sending it back for a flat $165 rate. Help. There is a manual magazine release sign on back, but no apparent way to do that. Help. ddeist@bucksfab.com

    My CD cartridge stopped playing on the last CD. I'm not sure if the last CD ever played. The cartridge will not eject when the eject control is pressed; just makes a whirring sound several times in succession and then is silent until control is pressed again. Bose suggested standing unit on left side while smacking the top and pressing control. This didn't work.

    cd cartriage doesn't eject, just like the other complaints, however after poking around trying to move a slide on bottom of unit where it says manuel eject a small spring fell out of bottom of unit and now no whirring sound when push eject. my real question is how do you get the case apart? no screws are evident on bottom just tiny holes. if i can get to the mechinisem i'm pretty sure i can atleast find out more info.

The top cover is held in place by xmass trees similar to the ones found in cars. There also some sticky tape in the front Just gently start prying and the top cover will come off. One that's out of the way you will see three screws that hold the guts of the unit to the bottom chassis. Remove these screws and the spring for the door and remove the CD portion. When you turn the CD potion on its back look at all of the gears for one that has slipped on its shaft. This was the problem with my unit. I was able to slip the gear back into position and put some crazy glue to hold it in place. I plugged my unit in at this point and watched as the unit was having trouble ejecting the CD I was able push on the CD with a flat blade and the CD came out and I was then able to eject. After playing with this for a few tries my unit was able to load and play any CD. I was rather surprised how easy this really was Give it a try you don't have much to loose.

This happened with my computer, the belt slipped off and I had to take it all apart, pull out the tray carfully and put the belt back on. It sounds like a lot of work but it really isnt.

Is there a way to open the lifestye 20 to manually release the cd that is stuck. Im not finding any screws


I'd suggest taking a look at this thread http://forum.ecoustics.com/bbs/messages/1/154803.html
i.e.
"Turn the unit on. Pick it up from the right side and rest it on its left side in a vertical position. Gently tap the right side of the media console while hitting the eject button at the same time. I had to tap it hard before it would eject the cd cartridge, but it did come out with all CD's intact. I will try to pry it open and check the gear on the motor. I have had this Lifestyle 25 system for 8 years problem free before the CD cartridge got stuck, and Bose technical help told me how to get it unstuck. But they now want me to trade my system in for a new one. I'm not ready for that yet, I'll check the gear on the motor that Anonymous mentioned."

My in-car cdc will not eject the cartridge?.


Press the eject button several times non stop.Like 10 to 15 times non stop and see,if the cartridge is getting ejected out.If its still stuck,then disconnect the car battery negative terminal for 15 minutes then reconnect the negative terminal and heck.If still the cartridge is stuck,then its problem with internal mechanism.You will have to disassemble the unit and manually eject the cartridge out and lubricate internal mechanism.-------------- Unplug the changer and use a flat metal ruler.And slide it alongside the cartridge. try sliding on both sides. You'll eventually trigger the manual switch and it'll pop out.Bif that is also not helping then:--- solution is to disassemble the CD changer and lubricating the mechanisms inside. This is the most common problem with CD changers. Take the unit out of car and try to release disc manually.Take the screws out on both sides of player then remove case . You will be able to manually push the big gear so that the disc goes back into the cartridge. And then it slides out. After that you lube all moving parts with a teflon grease and some parts with silicon spray. This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

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.

I can not get the Magazine to release. I see where it say's Manual Magazine realease, but can't tell what to do. Please help Darrell Mack


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check that the speaker cables are not damaged and the connections are secure. Reduce the output level from any external components connected to the music center. Make sure the audio input cable is firmly seated in the music center SPEAKER ZONE 1 jack and the multi-pin connector on the other end is firmly seated in the Accustoms module AUDIO INPUT jack. Check the cables connecting the Jewel Cube TM speakers to the Accustoms module. To restore communication between the music center and the speakers turn the music center off for ten seconds, then on again. Check the connections for any external components. Make sure to select the correct source for the desired input. Be sure the CD is placed correctly, label-side up, in the magazine, and the magazine is inserted properly in the music center. Increase the volume. Check to see if MUTE is lit on the display. If it is, press the MUTE button on the remote control to un-mute the sound. Disconnect any headphones. Connect the FM and AM antennae. Check to see if the play symbol in the display is lit. After pressing the CD key, wait a few seconds before pressing PLAY. Make sure the magazine is properly inserted. Check to see if there is a disc in the magazine, label-side up. Display shows a flashing box for a disc that is label-side down or cannot be read. There may be dirt or dust on the CD. If so, clean the CD. Eject the magazine and try loading the CD again. A display message “E01” indicates a mechanical error. Unplug the music center. Reconnect power and try again. If “E01” reappears, call customer service.

If the CD stuck again as you stated in your earlier comments, then you need to use a small and long screwdriver to reach the notch. Now turn the media center upside down so that the "Manual Magazine Release" is in your upper right hand. Locate the two small rectangular "Open Slots" on the side. You need to use the top slot. Use the screwdriver and push the little "U" or "Y" Shaped metal upward which is just below the manual release. The magazine will come out.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Hi, Underneath the unit you will see a small slot and "manual cd eject" embossed on the case , a jewelers screwdriver or darning needle or anything stiff and thin to pull down the wire lever inside the slot should do it.
