Question about Bose Lifestyle 30 System

Open Question

My Bose has a manual magazine release. How do I use it? I have a 6 cd changer Lifestyle 20 since 1999. My son jammed one of his cd's. I can't eject the magazine. When the system is off it makes a clicking noise and the cd's move from one slot to the next before everything stops and then there is a loud constant buzzing noise.

SOURCE: 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.

How do you open the base unit to remove the cd changer magazine


The top cover is held on with 4 clips (similar to those on a car door card) so needs to be gently prised off, this will expose screws etc to enable the bottom cover to be removed.

Ive done this with my system but it does not really help solve the problem, I still can't get to the jammed disc!!

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.

My CD changer cartridge is jammed in the unit


Peel the top off the unit using a small flat head screw driver. You may break the glue or the tabs are like the one's you'd see on a cars door panel. (xmas tree shaped spears). Once this is removed you can see the CD and the top of the changer. Under the unit there is a molded message that says Manual magazine release. Go into the thin slot with an ice pick and push to the back of the "U" shape. You can feel that it is spring loaded. This will release the cartridge.
