Make sure that you are using a proper audio CD - some players will not work with computer DATA disks, especially re-writeable disks.
Those that do accept computer disks often only like one format either R+ ( and RW+) or R- (and RW-). Most do not accept both.
If your system will not work with any disks, including proper professionally recorded CDs then try purchasing a CD cleaning disk (a computer CD/DVD drive cleaning disk will work okay). It is like a normal CD but with a tiny little brush mounted on it, which will clean the lens of the laser unit as the disk spins.
You can also try cleaning off the lens by opening the lid of the player and using a small paint brush (dry) to remove any accumulated dust.
this is a mechanism problem. Also, maybe something might have hooked the cd tray and made it stuck.
What you have to do now is to open the player by unscrewing the cover, so that you can gain access to the mechanism inside the player.
After you must have opened the cover, plug the cd changer to light, power it on and use you hand to pull out the tray while you press open button.
Also make observations on the disc tray while you press the open button and check the disc tray and look for what is making it stuck and refuse to open. This is why you need use your hand to support the disc tray by pushing it open from the inside.
To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
Wave® music system is designed to play commercial CDs, CD-Rs,
MP3-encoded CDS and CD-RWs. If your system has trouble playing MP3 CDs,
make sure the discs were recorded with compatible formats. See Cannot play MP3 CDs
The system may not be able to play certain CD-RW discs. Playability
is dependant on how the disc was recorded, including the format it was
recorded in and the actual disc used for recording. Note: iTunes
defaults to AAC as the encoding format. In order to use iTunes to make
CDs that will play on the Wave® music system, you’ll need to change the
format to MP3 How to Choose Import Options
Different brands of CD-Rs and CD-RWs use different materials which
may affect the ability of a player to read them. If you are burning
your own CD-Rs or CD-RWs, experiment with different brands of discs
If a commercial disc won’t play, check for scratches, fingerprints
or other physical damage. Try the CD in another player. If it still
won’t play, there may be a problem with the disc
Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug the system back in
I just removed the cover from my wave radio. There are 3 screws that hold the top cover on. Two are exposed and in the rear of the unit and the other is under the CD player lid.
To replace the cover find the two tabs in the front on the bottom cover. Slide the top on and using a screwdriver carefully pry back the front of the top cover so that the two tabs slip by and move into place. Then open up the CD player cover and make sure the spindle fits through the hole in the top cover. Push down and replace the screws.
I didnt remove the ribbon cable so you will have to check on how to refit the connector.
CD Player on my Bose Wave radio/cd just blinks CD and it appears to me that the disc is not spinning. This is the same problem that many others have already identified. I unplugged the unit and removed the battery but this did not solve the problem. I notice that there is a "platter" (part of the lid) that sandwiches the cd onto the spindle. the platter seems tight but does turn. Also, does anyone know if there is a drive belt that may have broken?
