ACOUSTIC 1 CD unit will not play certain CD's

ACOUSTIC 1 CD unit will not play certain CD's. The unit will not play some CD's. It appears to be reading the disk, then continues to rotate without the music starting. The unit is from 1999, a cd3000 model. It has not been dropped, but may have been subjected to a man-made cd.

    Yes, those cd's do play all the way through. Also certain cd's will sit--say 5-10 minutes--then start to play on their own.

    The cds' that the unit does play, do they play all the way through without any skips?

Hi Marva,
Here are the three possible problems according to your description in order of probability. One is that the laser needs cleaning. Two is that the laser is getting weak. Three is that the motor is not spinning the cd up to speed fast enough so that the table of contents can be read. The thing to try first is to take the unit apart with the power disconnected and clean the laser lens. A cotton swab dabbed with Windex usually works great. If that was not the problem, look at the motor spinning your cd. If there are any tiny openings in the motor put a drop of 3 in 1 oil in the opening and let it sit for awhile. The third of course involves replacing the laser assembly. Good luck. - Joe.

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.

I have a bose acoustic wave,single disc model CD-3000. The CD is not working,the CD spins but won't play. The radio works great.

Had the same problem. Mine the cd drive got out of alignment. Sorry to say the fix is to have it replaced. BOSE will do this for about $150. Typically this includes the one year service agreement, a full system "tune up" and a one year warrenty.

Call BOSE and they will take care of you.

My Technics SL-DZ1200 will not play certain MP3 tracks. It will play some, but on others the message "track error" appears. these same disks will play just fine on the other cd player machines I have...

I believe it can only read certain bitrates. I noticed that if I run the track error files through audacity and re-save as an mp3 with 192 kbps encoding it plays fine. Give it a try - re-encoding.

Dvd not playing dvds

Basic Information:

i) try to choose  right burner for eg: Nero CD/DVD Burner

ii) try to choose the right format,

     for eg: MP3/MP4/ Audio Songs will come under Audio format
               in such case select "Audio CD/DVD format" in Nero CD/DVD Burner

     for eg: .DAT/MPEG/MP4/Video will come under Video format

                in such case select "Video CD/DVD format" in Nero CD/DVD Burner

     for eg: "DATA CD format" is only storing some data on CD/DVD iresspective whether it is                            Videofile or Audio file, 

                these "DATA CD formated" CD/DVD when played in DVD Player will play only Audio files 
                but no Video Files
