Question about Bose 3 2 1 GSX System

Car CD player

I bought a used CD from Amazon. As soon as I put this into my car CD player, it stopped working. Can't eject the CD or others that are in and it won't play. Get an error message "Check CD" which indicates the CD is defective. Any thoughts on how to remove this defective CD from the player?
Pls note I had to indicate a specific Product type but I can't tell what it is without removing it from the car. It is a combination radio/CD player for the car, Bose.

Re: car CD player

Thank you for the suggestions and info! I guess I should take it in rather than trying to do it myself!

Re: car CD player

Bose provided the speakers, now problems relating to cd play from that point of view.
i had similar problem in my volvo , and decided to take the stereo out to find out why it would eject. i dscovered my kids shoved coins into the cd player slot.......... even though the disk itself was also not good......

if for some reason you decide to remove cdplayer element of stereo from car ( as car may be too long out of warranty )or you fell cool about doing this, just make sure you dont disconnect the climate control or the on board unit with central locking switches, or you will still have to bring your car back to the main dealer to get the air bag and locking systems reset. even removing the fuses from the fuse board wnt help here if you decide to proceed with DIY CD player repair as removing the wrong fuses or combinations of fuses (FOR YOUR MAKE AND MODEL OF CAR) will result in the same situation on re installation.

good luck.

2005 350Z 6 disc changer / error message

Use a Laser Lens Cleaner. Run it thru the player a couple times. Use one that has fluid with it, you can find them at any electronics retailer for 15-20. If it still has the same problem, the only thing to do is send it for repair, they will replace the transport. Average cost of 125-175 on a changer. Hope this helps

Cd magazine stuck in unit. you can hear the motor

There should be a tiny pinhole on the drawer. Put the end of a paper clip into the hole and push lightly. This will release the cd drawer.

DAV DZ100 - Not working

2 options comes in my mind...
Put software upgrading CD manually in player and let it finish software upgrade process.
If this trick doesn't work, you need to replace digital process board or need to replace on board ROM, if you can.
let me know if you need further info.

DVD is stuck in Bose lifestlye 48 media player

We had a power surge during a thunderstorm that dimmed our lights, and after that the CD opened as normal.

A friend suggested that I pull the power connector, press the open/close button and hold it down as I reconnected the power connector. The power surge beat me to that, so I don't know if it works. It was more than "Tech Support" could offer however.

System doesn't read any disk

Mine started doing this just the other day and stopped playing the DVD it was playing. I found a solution for a portable player that worked on this one. You need to open it, eject the tray and slide the laser carriage back and forth all the way two or three times gently and by grabbing on to plastic that hooks around the metal bar on the right if you are facing the player from the front. Then plug it in and play a CD all the way through and this recalibrates the laser.

I wonder how many people throw away their DVD players when this is all it needs. Makes me sick to think about it.

Dvd player won't open

I had the same problem for my panasonic dvd player (ht540). Neither of the above solutions worked so I found this one on the panasonic website:

1. turn off unit by holding down the POWER button for 10 seconds.

2. unplug the power cord and wait for one minute.

3. plug the cord back in and turn on the unit

4. when the dvd begins to play, press "EJECT".

It worked for me. The site for other troubleshooting is:
