Re: CD not working

Try gently swabbing the lens with rubbing alcohol and then immediately drying it with canned air. If this doesnt work the laser will need replacing (est $75-100 at most shops).

Bose cd changer keeps saying disc error

If it's on just one disc, the disc is dirty or fingerprinted or scratched or in some way damaged. Inspect and clean, try again, and if that doesn't work, discard it. On the other hand, if the radio rejects lots of discs, that means the CD player needs service. Send it to Bose.

CD player wont work. Radio does. CD wont turn- just blinks

The laser pickup assembly is the problem, the pladder motor that spins the disc is not working, causes! no B+ to the motor, the pladder motor is defective, or the laser pickup is the issue. To get this item fixed, it must be done on site at the factory plus they have all the available parts.

I have a bose wave radio cd. the cd spins but won't start playing.

Install the disc cleaner cleaning kit you bought from Wal-Mart so that the heads are cleaned of dirt and debris. Now try to play a disc. Also, check that the disc is not heavily scratched or got grime on it. You going to have to go have the disc re-surfaced and cleaned so it will play again.

If none of the above work, then you have to call Bose factory service and have them look into it if your within warranty. Otherwise, you gonna have to open this thing up and replace that failing optical drive or check for a loose power cable that connects to the optical drive.

The cd player is not reading the discs. The read out flashes and blinks but it does not read the music off the disc.

Try removing the cover and clean glass laser eye lens with rubbing alcohol and cotton swab. If cleaning doesn't work, then laser lens circuit will need to be tested and replaced. You can use an ohmmeter to test the capacitors and circuit.

CD player stopped working on Sony ICF-CD831 PSYC Clock Radio/CD P

I've been able to prolong the life on mine by doing this:

Insert the disc, then spin it by hand and quickly close the door and hit play.

It's always worth using a laser cleaner first, as it may just be dirty and stops spinning because it cannot read the disc.

Wave CD changer

Could try a CD lens cleaner disc, but this will just as likely get stuck inside. Far better to contact Bose for a repair - sounds like a problem in the changer mechanism
