My bose CD player is not working my cd are stuck I don,t why

Good luck this should do it.

If you have a cd or two stuck in your Bose wave radio, here's how to remove it and save yourself $99. This procedure is for the radio (model AWRCC1 or similar) with a single front loading cd slot.
1. First unplug the power, wait a minute, and then replug power, watching the front display.
2. The display will read "Ejecting". If the cd ejects, then you're done and can skip Part II. If it doesn't eject and/or it displays "Disk error" then you'll need to do the Part II steps.
1. Unplug the power cord.
2. Turn the radio upside down with the front facing you.
3. Remove the 5 screws from the bottom plate.
4. Hinge the front of the bottom plate up no more than 2". Don't overdo this or you'll damage various ribbon cables inside. Use extra hands or a prop to keep it open this amount.
5. Reach inside and tilt-up the front of cd player's metal housing just enough to access the rims of the cd(s) within the space created in step 4.
6. Pinch the rim(s) of the cd(s) and gently pull it/them out.
7. Reverse these steps to reassemble your radio.
Enjoy your cd player again!

Cd is stuck inside i have unplugged & plugged and pressed eject & power at the same time

Some CD players have a tiny hole on the door or tray that slides out. Stick a paperclip in the hole and it will release the tray. Yours may not have this, but it has to have some manual way of opening.

CD player says reading disk about three times after a cd is put in and then the cd is ejected and the message says "not playable." we have tried to clean the head, but it also ejects the...


You can try clean the optical lens by removing Bose top cover ( make sure power off your device before remove the cover). Now instead of using cleaning disk, you can using cotton **** with cleaning lens liquid. Wipe clean the lens ( 2-3 times). After it gets dried, you can try your device. If still no joy, your optical lens is defective and need replacement.

Keeps rejecting any cd inserted spittinf it out

The CDs you inseting is not loading properly into the mechanism. Check its loading belt. If loading belt is loose, thie tyep of fault will occur. Check the loading motor also. If the pulling power of loading motor go less, the discs will not load properly and will ejected out as it loaded into. There is no other possiblilities other than this to check. OK.

I cannot insert a CD into the CD slot.

I really like these radios, by the way, and have 1 of the radios w/out CD, 2 with the CD and one of the HD radio's. I'm one of those people that needs multiple alarms to get up so I set several of them to turn on at different times in the morning and it works great!
I have had this problem twice and I've unplugged the unit then after I plug it back in I hold down the CD eject button while I turn it back on. The display then says something like "CD Reset" and it resets the CD mechanism to the beginning of the cycle. This moves the CD holder to the correct position. (I assume the problem is due to the CD positioning device stopping in the wrong place after it ejects a CD, for whatever reason)
I hope this helps. Mine did the same thing with no CD inside.
I listen to the radio a lot, and by having these in several rooms, I can listen to radio without having to have it turned up super loud when I am walking around the house. I also use this at the High School where I am a science teacher. It produces enough quality audio to fill the classrooms with music or playing podcasts of "Science Friday."

Can't eject cds

I had this problem, and was able to solve it by holding the unit (carefully) so that the CD slot faces the floor, then pushing the eject button. Gravity acted to eject one CD, then the other.
