Boston Acoustics MicroSystem CD can't play CD's, no parts availab

Dear Sirs,
My Boston Acoustics MicroSystem CD can't play CD's anymore, it registers an E-4 and E-6 error. The radio tuner works fine still. The agents tell me they can't get parts for the lazer that is faulty and therefore can't repair the unit. I really enjoy the unit and would like to get it fixed. Any ideas welcome. I live in Johannesburg, South Africa.

SOURCE: my boston microsystem cd has stopped working.

I contacted Boston acoustics. I was told this is an intermittent problem with some units (mine is date april 2007). They say the radio will recover if kept unplug for 5 days. This is the time it takes for a huge capacitor on the main PC to discharge completely. They say a firmware upgrade can solve the problem.

So the idea is to leave it unplu for 5 days, plug it back and it should turn on again. I'm at day 3 and hpoing for the best.

Microsystem CD wont eject


I know I've come to this late, but here goes anyway...
When you press eject and the CD starts to come out, but gets stuck when a little bit of the CD is showing, I lightly press down on the CD which 'releases' whatever was catching the CD and the eject completes.

Hey...if your system is less than a year old it may be covered by the warranty, if not remove the cover to access the inside of unit. Near the power supply inside there is a fuse, it may be blown. Can be found at local electronics supply. Good luck.

We unplug our microsystem at night to save electricity. Now, it does not turn on although I can tell there is electricity because there is some light on the on/off button and display window, but the time...


I got the same problem. I wrote to Boston Acoustics to see what they say. I think the PCB needs to be replaced, but it shouldn't have failed in the first place. My radio just like yours worked perfectly before it was unpluged. It doesn't make sense that a radio that pricy fails just like that. I will let you know what Boston Acoustics says.

Have a Boston Acoutics Microsystem-all that comes on is the backlite on the display. No matter which buttons or combination, no response. 9 v battery fine. Simply won't come on. Anyone with any ideas?


See my other post. This is a common problem with this radio. Leave it unplug for 5 days, and it will recover. This is the time it takes for a huge capacitor to discharge inside. Somehow, unde rare circumstances, it locks the software. I was told by Boston Acoustic that a firmware upgrade solves this intermittent problem. If its still under warranty, ask for the upgrade. Otherwise, when it happens, unplug for 5 days and you're fine.
