6 disc cd magazine will not eject

The cd magazine will not eject and keeps running and making a clicking noise. Kind of like it is trying to eject but is stuck.

    The magazine popped forward but not enough to actually eject it, it is still stuck, not quite far enough to grab it and pull it out. We tried to pull it from the sides, but it still feels like it is stuck on something. The clicking motor ejection noise stopped. Any ideas how to get the rest of the way out?

Take off the cable from behind, than plug it in another place.
It should work but if it doesn't go to best buy.

    Just got the same error message/problem but mine did nothing. There is
    a latching mechanism 4" deep to the left of center of the magazine. Use
    a 6 x 2" plastic ruler the thickness of a credit card
    (that was about 3/4" too short), insert it with the left side at the
    centerline of the magazine and push to your left. That will release the
    magazine. It seems the "no magazine" error (if it is not doing anything
    when trying to eject it) indicates the changer is fried as mine does
    absolutely nothing and does not appear to get any power. Took it apart,
    checked the fuse, etc. and it's still dead as a doorknob.

I can not eject a disc from the disc player. I've heard this is a common problem. Thanks. Curt Pasawicz


Hi curt730,

You're right, this is a known issue for years with Bose Lifestyle. You may try these steps to resolve the issue:

Note: You will need a flashlight and a small screwdriver.

1. First, disconnect the base unit from the system.

2. Turn the base unit upside down and find the access hole embossed with "Manual magazine release" on the CD player side.

3. Then, using the flashlight, look inside the base unit at those access holes and find the fine spring and locate where it fastens to the sheet metal of the CD player.

4. The moment you find the spring you should see that it connects to the CD player chassis at the forward end and a piece of sheet metal that is on top (actually underneath when the base unit is right-wide up) of the CD player chassis at the rear end. This is the manual release mechanism.

5. Finally using the small screwdriver, push the release mechanism rearward to release the CD magazine from the player. The magazine should pop out.

If the magazine is not released, then the CD that is still in the player has not been slid back fully into the magazine. In this case you'll need to plug the base unit back into power and hope that the CD is retracted, allowing you to push the release mechanism rearward. If not then you'll have to open the base unit to access the CD player.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

It won't eject and makes a noise when I press the eject button


Sounds like the disc is stuck.
Look for a pinhole around the CD-Tray area, and straighten out a paperclip, and shove it straight back into the hole.
This should release the tray lock and eject the disc enough that you can remove it.
Once you have the disc out, try the eject button and see if it returns to normal operation (you may need to unplug and plug back in the unit)

I can not get the Magazine to release. I see where it say's Manual Magazine realease, but can't tell what to do. Please help Darrell Mack


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check that the speaker cables are not damaged and the connections are secure. Reduce the output level from any external components connected to the music center. Make sure the audio input cable is firmly seated in the music center SPEAKER ZONE 1 jack and the multi-pin connector on the other end is firmly seated in the Accustoms module AUDIO INPUT jack. Check the cables connecting the Jewel Cube TM speakers to the Accustoms module. To restore communication between the music center and the speakers turn the music center off for ten seconds, then on again. Check the connections for any external components. Make sure to select the correct source for the desired input. Be sure the CD is placed correctly, label-side up, in the magazine, and the magazine is inserted properly in the music center. Increase the volume. Check to see if MUTE is lit on the display. If it is, press the MUTE button on the remote control to un-mute the sound. Disconnect any headphones. Connect the FM and AM antennae. Check to see if the play symbol in the display is lit. After pressing the CD key, wait a few seconds before pressing PLAY. Make sure the magazine is properly inserted. Check to see if there is a disc in the magazine, label-side up. Display shows a flashing box for a disc that is label-side down or cannot be read. There may be dirt or dust on the CD. If so, clean the CD. Eject the magazine and try loading the CD again. A display message “E01” indicates a mechanical error. Unplug the music center. Reconnect power and try again. If “E01” reappears, call customer service.

If the CD stuck again as you stated in your earlier comments, then you need to use a small and long screwdriver to reach the notch. Now turn the media center upside down so that the "Manual Magazine Release" is in your upper right hand. Locate the two small rectangular "Open Slots" on the side. You need to use the top slot. Use the screwdriver and push the little "U" or "Y" Shaped metal upward which is just below the manual release. The magazine will come out.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

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.

Computers problem


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me"

Honestly, I can not understand your problem. Nonetheless, I will assume that your concern is that the CD ROM ejects when you click on the drive. If you are using Microsoft Vista, then this is a common issue.

To my knowledge, Vista will only open your CD-RW and DVD RW drive automatically if there is no disc been inserted yet. If you want to disable this feature, there is a trick to disable or turn off Windows Vista auto eject function, by disabling Windows Vista built-in CD/DVD burning feature, which does not affect ability to burn disc using third party program or burning engine such as Nero.This was originally discussed here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Stuck CD cassette


Dear needhelp5246,
What you need is a screw driver not a sledgehammer. Open the bottom plate of the system and eject the cd magazine manually. Hope this solve your problem.

2nd question


are you determined to try to fix the CD unit ?
it could be taken apart and the problem found with dificulty unless it is obvious from the outset and thus resolved, ( i suggest you get a new cd 20 or a second hand replacement or remanufactured unit, all available from bose or try ebay etc. they are old now and not very expensive.

PS the reason the unit is sticking is beacuse it is most likely the cassette is damaged ( you can buy a replacement cassette, part number is on the side (llook up on intenet) and identical generic and after-market ones are avaialbe as the cassette is a standard part.)
second most likely cause is something caught in the cassets insertion mechanism which will involve opening cd 20 - not recommended to open this unless you are determined to do so and spend lots of time messing with springs andmotors and belts etc.

my advice..... get a replacement cassette first (borrow a mates one first to check) then replace cd 20 its not going to cost too much.

Bose Lifestyle 30 6-cd changer magazine manual release?


hi, you can release the magazine by inserting a small flat head screwdriver in the slot and pushing the lever towards the back of the unit, this will release the cd but only if ther is not one stuck in the player as it will remain halfway between the mag and the cdplayer. don't force it to comae out. remember to obviously have the dorr to the player open before you try this.
