    Exactly the same problem CDs will not play anymore. Sometimes turning it off then on again helps, sometimes it will eventually start playing after minutes of spinning, at other times it justs spins & spins and NEVER starts. I paid what I consider to be a lot of money for this device and really do want it to work. What can I do ? Don't BOSE have any pride in their products ??

    I have the same problem with my unit! I have resisted the urge to pound the thing with my fist or a sledgehammer, but really I would like to know if there's a way to fix the problem.

I've repaired about 10 type Bose AWRC3x (the radio/cd model with lift up lid and top controls). If the cd won't play or skips, try cleaning the lens VERY carefully with a cotton bud with some isopropyl alcohol. Let it dry then try again. This will help in about 1/3 of cases.

After that, a new laser unit is needed. They cost around 15 pounds,30 dollars, (Type SFP100s with 13 pin connector made by Sanyo). You need to have some electronics experience to take the case to bits to get the laser deck out, change the cd laser and reassemble. Basically, DISCONNECT THE POWER! Remove the 3 screws on top, turn over and carefully prise the front of the base away from the top cover with a table knife or similar. Lift off the top cover - be careful with the lid ribbon! The deck can be disconnected from its ribbon cable and wired connector very carefully. Take the deck to bits and fit the new laser head (take photos if you think it will help). Remember to unsolder the shorting 'blob' of solder which protects the new laser from static till its fitted.

On the bright side, there is no tracking etc to set up, that's all automatic so usually they work like new with a new laser fitted. I have to say this is the weakest feature on the Bose CD radio, the actual electronics rarely gives trouble.

Hope this helps Steve O'Donnell

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.

I have had a boise radio abdcd olayer for some time and know very little about its operations. today i played a cd and left the house and expected it to stop as it usually does. however, it keeps on...


With the typos and all it's just a guess, but I'll assume you mean the Bose Wave radio.

I suspect the CD Mode button has been pushed so that the mode is set to REPEAT.

The manual for the Bose Wave Radio / CD is here:

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
