    similar but mine says 'ejecting but it isn't. In trying to put a CD in it onlly goes part way and feels like one is stuck....Should I try to remove the cover to check it.

    You have to leave it unplugged for 10 minutes or so.

    Mine is doing the same thing. Bose wants $100 plus shipping to fix.

    My Bose radio CD player worked a month ago, but last night when I tried to put in a CD, it said it was reading it but then stopped and said Error. I tried unplugging it for about 30 seconds and plugging it back in, but the problem remained.

    I tried both of these suggestions and mine still wont take a CD and says reading error.

Thanks - well I plugged it back it -pushed eject and it said no disc. I tried another and it wouldn't take it...
Got brave and took off the cover - gently checked in - no disc - gently moved the CD enclosure part - managed to get the screws back in...not it is playing a CD - Hope for the best - Sad to think they might have charged me $150 to repair after me mailing it in cost.

Cannot retrive CD , makes a noise and will not release

Not a solution, just confirmation that my system problem sounds like yours. Hit eject and it makes noises but will not open to release the CD.
Hope someone finds an answer.

A disc is in the Bose Wave system and will not play or eject

Unplug the system. Turn the entire unit upside down. The CDs will eject. After I tried this (found it online somewhere), it worked fine for about 2 months. Now it suddenly turns on by itself and ejects CDs (creepy). But at least the original problem was solved.

Bose multi cd changer wont work, reads "Disc error"

I think there may be a problem with the system (defective parts) - I, too, am having this issue. I am going to contact the BBB - maybe if enough of us complain we will get a recall. To file a complaint:

CD stuck in BOSE 3 disk stack player

I had the same problem and went to the Bose Tech Support site and found this solution. It allowed me to eject the stuck CD. The same problem happened again when I tried to enter another CD but after repeating the process below the CD ejected again and after that it worked fine.
Hope it works for you.
  • Try performing a reset with your Wave® music system upside down:
    1. Unplug the system, flip it upside down, place it on a firm, level surface, then plug it back in again

    2. If the CD ejects when you do this, the system may need to be serviced. Contact Bose® Technical Support or call 1-800-278-1281

    Bose Wave Music Sys & 3 CD Changer

    I have had a few of these come to my shop. The gears jump out of timing causing the cd lift to jam or become unalligned. The unit will probably have to be disassembled to get the CD out or have it serviced.

    Cd stuck

    unplug the unit and as you plug it back in start pressing the eject button in one second intervals as it powers up. This should command it to eject before it tries to read the disc.
