Does it do this while useing the radio? These radios have a few specific problems. The cd may just need cleaning. If you can run a disk to clean it, that might just fix the problem. Dust can block the lens. The other problem is the caps in the system go bad an need replacement. The amp section on these fail with poorly made caps.

SOURCE: CD does not engage to play/ on/off button does not work on radio

I hope it is still under warranty and can be replaced, Bose products are littered with problems.

Pool loading of the CD can be a simple lens cleaning or a defective laser/transport.

First step is to unplug for 10 minutes then replug.

Failing that find the nearest service centre.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,

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.

Bose wave awrc-1g cd player spins but does not play.


You have done what i would have suggested, the Bose Wave unit will need to back to Bose for service, and there is a good chance they will need to replace the laser pickup assembly and cost should be considered even thoe it is top of the line.

Does the radio work? If not, make sure the volume is up. If so, the speakers are not blown. Return your product.

Bose Wave Radio w/single CD player on top


My Bose Wave Radio/CD developed this problem about a year ago. I don't use the CD player much and kept the unit clean. The disc spins but, the system does not read it. Cleaning the lens with cotton did not help.

Read that Bose charges $75 to fix this problem.
