What you can do is look for a paper clip and make it into a long pin by straightening it. Then insert it into a small pin hole which you can find on the CD Rom. Push the pin a little hard and you will find your CD Rom Tray opening up about an inch out. Now you can pull the cd tray out and take out your CD. Read more at www.fixpcfreeze.com

if you look closely enough there is a small hole on almost any sound system if you do have one put a paper clip in there and wiggle it around a little bit youll hear a click and the system should eject the cd if not then the cd has jammed in there and shattered which means you will have to pay a profecional to take out the dvd and get the disc out. hope this helps and if not well i apologise

My Bose Wave radio/cd won`t play cd`s anymore. The radio works great. The cd player worked tonite, the would stick in a certain part of a song. Very intermittent. Now tries to read the disc, then says disc...


"I`ve used an aerosol air can to clean thru the cd slot"What type? not an "empty" can of paint, hairspray, chemical of some sort i hope. Compressed air at most I hope. If not, that's your Bose out the window!
The lense sounds like it needs a clean, you can buy these in disc for with tiny brushes on. Made by BIB and Allsop amongst many brands

Won.t play


on some cd players, when they are closed ,they also push a button or little springloaded switch to let it know its loaded. Now eventually these doors wear down and dont quite push the activation switch all the way
yours is inside the box and can sometimes be temporirily jammed down with blue tack or tape
Ive had the same problem and in the end its time to buy another system my friend

Won't Play CDs


hi make sure that you cart is inserted all the way in, push the eject button why hitting the mag with the handle of ascrew driver. this may dislodge the jammed arm/lever. otherwise its down to your repair agent.

Disc gets jammed mid-way between CD magazine slot and inside player


Thats alot of disc this ubit holds. 110+1!! The CD changer arm mechanism sounds like is out of timming or the gears have slipped there teeth, and or the cam is broken, or theres a couple of small microswitches that can get broken as well.. The only way to work on this unit and see what the problem is, is to get a service manual and go through the mechanical alighnment and see where the problem is. Unless you can do a physical examination and know where every lob and gear is suppose to be, I do not see any other ways.
