If the fault is more involved the unit will have to be serviced, you should contact the manufacture to find out about who in your area can service your player.

Hi,

You can try clean the optical lens by removing Bose top cover ( make sure power off your device before remove the cover). Now instead of using cleaning disk, you can using cotton **** with cleaning lens liquid. Wipe clean the lens ( 2-3 times). After it gets dried, you can try your device. If still no joy, your optical lens is defective and need replacement.

I have a bose wave radio cd. the cd spins but won't start playing.


Install the disc cleaner cleaning kit you bought from Wal-Mart so that the heads are cleaned of dirt and debris. Now try to play a disc. Also, check that the disc is not heavily scratched or got grime on it. You going to have to go have the disc re-surfaced and cleaned so it will play again.

If none of the above work, then you have to call Bose factory service and have them look into it if your within warranty. Otherwise, you gonna have to open this thing up and replace that failing optical drive or check for a loose power cable that connects to the optical drive.

Why does the CD function on my Bose Wave Radio/CD sometimes not work even though the CD is spinning?


Hi, when the lens of the CD player is weak, it can keep on spinning and not play. what you will need to do is to get a lens cleaner and clean the lens(instructions are on the lens cleaner.

If after cleaning and it still did not work, that means the lens is to weak to perform well. It will need to be changed to a new lens.

Take care.

When using my 5disc cd player it keeps skipping and causing static intermitingly.The cd's are new and play fine on my small BOSE with only one cd unit.What do I do??? ngly


First thing I'd try is cleaning the laser with a CD / DVD lens cleaning disc. You can find them just about anywhere (Walmart, Target, Best Buy)

Just follow the instructions on the disc (basically just play it) the disc has brushes built into the bottom which will clean the laser lens automatically.

Let me know if that clears up the problem.

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,

Try cleaning the lens using a cotton sdwab and alcohol. If that fails to resolve it, the optics are probably starting to fail. Depending upon which model, the optics may be Sony ones that are readily available and relatively cheap. Any service shop that works on audio gear should be able to help with this. Expect the optics to cost between $10-$40.

Cd "not playable" on Bose Wave AWrcc2


Sounds like a weak or bad optical pick-up. You could try gently cleaning it, but you'll probably have to send to Bose for repair.
