Re: MOdel 5 Bose Lens

If this is the front panel lens for the display, this is a Bose part only. Contact Bose directly to find out how to order the part.

How do I change lens on Bose Wave CD player

You need to buy the correct replacement lens - usually on ebay is a good selection. Keywords - Bose Laser. Email the seller, and ask for help to identify which lens you need.

Then disassemble your machine, and install the new lens.

If that's too complicated for you, have a local technician do the work.

It won't play disks and just makes a lot of mechanical noises as it goes from disk to disk trying to play one.

The mechanical parts are working but the laser pickup assembly is not reading the disc. The possible causes are, dirty laser pickup lens, bad pladder motor, or no b+ to the motor, or worn out laser assembly system. Because of the expense of buying the Bose units I highly recommend a professional service man to work on the item.

CD not playable


It sounds to me like the laser lens itself may be damaged or even broken.

Here is something you can try though, this might just work if the laser lens has some dust particles stuck to it. Just go to your nearest cd shop and buy yourself a laser lens cleaner disc, it is cheap.

Follow the instructions, and if the laser lens itself was dirty, this will help, otherwise the laser lens might be broken, which is a ver common problem, cause you used it for three years now.

Hope this can steer you in the right direction.

Kind regards

Cd player is skippping - I have cleaned the cds. still skipping. It is a bose wave radio single cd player.

Hello my friend,
I suggest to test with many different CDs, if it's still skipping in all CDs. i will say that it's a lens issue, in this case you buy some CD cleaner which has some special lotion which clean the lens. but if this doesn't help also, at this time i will say that the lens needs to be replaced and i hope that you device is still under warranty because the repair will be free for you.
Best Regards,

Cds won't play. have tried cleaning it with a cd

Your problem is not very uncommon in CD players.Your player is not dead, just the lens mechanism. It may be a simple error such as "out of alignment" or it may need replacement. Please be aware that the lens mechanism is the most expensive part in a CD/DVD player+ Service you can get a new player for that price. You may want to get a quote so that you can decide whether you want to get it fixed or buy another.

Cd player reads no disc when i try to play a cd

the laser lens on the optical pickup is dirty or scratched. to clean: buy a disk cleaner and use it per instructions. if it doesn't help, you can do it manually. remove the top, remove the top off of the disk assembly (you may have to remove the whole assembly first) until you see the lens. be careful with the cables and wires. use a lint-free swab (not a q-tip and not your finger), gently wipe off the lens. replace the covers and test. if it still doesn't work, it may be scratched or damaged. in which case, it needs to be replaced.

CD wont play in my Bose Wave

HI.This will occur when the optical assembly becomes unstable. this ((Whole One Piece)), assembly incorporates the spin/load motor, optics housing /arm, tracking device and tracking rail. This is connected to the loading dock assembly. This 'NO Disc', code is the result of a failed or burned out lens. It is possible that you have a dirty lens cap. you can try using a cleaning disk in this case to confirm actual lens failure. if the cleaning doesn't restore normal reading capabilities, this will confirm my diagnosis.

You will need to have the optical assembly replaced in this case. once replaced, your unit will be able to read and track once more.

CD player does not recognize the cd's in the player

Hi, you will need to replace the optical lens assembly asap if possible. this is basically what the issue is at Thia's time. you can confirm my diagnosis by trying to clean the lens with a lens cleaning disc. if the cleaning dosen't restore the reading ability of the lens, you will need to replace the optical lens assembly when possible.

please rate and have a great memorial day:)

Bose 5 disc cd multi changer wont load any discs from the magazin

That is usually because of dirty or defetive lens, as teh player cannot read the initial track of the CDs.

Try first using a len cleaner , like the ones here.

If this does not work it will be necessary to take apart the unit and accees the lens to clean it, or replace the lens pickup. The repair must be done by a technician.

In this case call the number listed on the owner manual to get assistance
