Use a cotton swab and isopropyl alcohol. Wet the end of the swab and gently rub the top of the laser lens. Let it dry for a few min and then try playing the cd again.

hi Squeakylyssa .This goes for all cd players.
If a CD is skipping, first ensure that the disc is working properly by checking to see if it plays on another device. If so, you'll have to uncover the problem in your CD player. Some common problems include: broken parts in the device, physical damage to the CD player, dirt within the player or, most commonly, damage to the lens.
Before you do anything with the CD player, it is important to remove the batteries and disconnect the device from any power source. Wait half an hour before you begin cleaning the device.
Use a lens cleaner to clean your CD player's lens properly. Unscrew the top cover of the player and locate the laser lens, which is located just adjacent to the central disc drive. Place a small amount of your cleansing solution on a cotton swab or other applicator that came with a lens cleaning kit; as an alternative to lens cleaner, you can also use isopropyl alcohol. Rub the cotton swab in very light and small circles against the lens until it is clear. Allow the lens to dry, and then proceed to test the CD player. If the CD player is still skipping after the lens has been cleaned, there is likely a hardware problem that needs to be solved.

A CD player has a few hardware components that may be causing your discs to skip. Unscrew and open the case of the CD player to locate the read head and potentiometer. Depending on the type of device you have, you may need to remove the bottom cover to gain access to the soldered side of the electronics board - if so, you will need to remove the whole board before you can proceed. In single-play designs, you should be able to find 3 or 4 screws that need to be removed to enable you to take out the whole optical deck. There may also be a grounding contact under the deck held in with one screw. Make sure you replace this exactly as you found it.
If your player spins for some time without finding the list of tracks and keeps returning some kind of error message once you place a CD in the player, there is a most likely a problem with the read head. The read head is represented by a small square piece that has a plastic disc sitting on top of it. Using a flathead screwdriver, adjust the plastic disc to realign the read head. This process requires you to plug in the device and hit play and stop until these adjustments fix the CD player. Make sure to put the case back on the CD player each time you test it to avoid any electrical shocks.
The potentiometer, which is positioned directly above the laser, may also be misaligned. Usually this is represented by a small square piece that has a plastic disk on top. The disk has a slot adjustable using a small flat head screwdriver. Before making any adjustments, mark the current position of the potentiometer using an indelible marker pen so that it can be returned to its initial position if need arises. You will need to gently adjust the potentiometer and locate the position where the CD player recognizes the disk again and plays it without skipping. Since this is more of a trial and error process, small rotations of plus/minus 30 degrees of rotation are usually recommendable. For safety, put the case back on the CD player each time you test. If you are happy with the performance after the adjustment then put the case back on and you are ready to rock.

Sometimes home made CDs will not play. You might try to stick a good quality CD/DVD cleaner in there and run it two or three complete times. If it got real dirty sometimes one clean just does not do it. If you try both of these to no avail then your lens may have misaligned a bit. Just a mm can cause reading failure. If you have further questions on this issue please feel free to ask me.

When i put in a cd, a message "not playable" comes


The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, over a period of time the laser pickup becomes weaker until it can no longer track the cd properly causing skipping, and plays off and on. One possible solution "if the laser lens is accessible", you can try cleaning it with a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol very carefully allowing several minutes to dry. If this fails, Bose will need to be contacted since they do the authorized repairs on their products.

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 www.bose.com 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.

Cd player is skippping - I have cleaned the cds. still skipping. It is a bose wave radio single cd player.


Hello my friend,
I suggest to test with many different CDs, if it's still skipping in all CDs. i will say that it's a lens issue, in this case you buy some CD cleaner which has some special lotion which clean the lens. but if this doesn't help also, at this time i will say that the lens needs to be replaced and i hope that you device is still under warranty because the repair will be free for you.
Best Regards,
