Bose Lifestyle 25 CD Skipping/jumping

I have a Bose Lifestyle 25 which has started jumping/skipping when playing CD’s. I bought a lens cleaning kit but it only made a slight difference so wanted to clean the lens internally or adjust the laser power inside. Does anyone know how to do either of these?

SOURCE: My Bose Lifestyle 25 System has been erratically

Hi,
This kind of problem happens when optical lens got thin layer of dust that causing problem to laser beam to read data properly. Please put lens cleaning disc in unit and press play button, cleaning disc has little brush that will clean optical lens, this will hopefully solve skipping problem.
If cleaning disc does not help then unit will take apart to clean optical lens manually with good quality cotton swab.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

My technics eh770 cd player is skipping so i now can't play cds


If the laser pickup is skipping, it is near end of life. Buy a CD cleaning kit and follow instructions, if there is no change the laser pickup assembly will need to be replaced, not cost effective to repair far cheaper to replace player.

Kenwood portable cd player dpc-741 skips.


Hello

The skipping happens because the lens is weak,to solve this problem open the cd player so you can see the lens.Clean the lens with cotton wool dabbed in a little methylated spirit(wipe carefully).This should stop the skipping.

If the skipping continues then the lens is too weak to play CD's so it is best that you change the lens of your CD player.

Jumping and skipping


Hallo

Ok, it sounds to me like the laser lens is dirty, the easiest and cheapest sollution is to buy a cd laser lens cleaner.

This is actually a cd which you insert into the cd trey and it will clean the laer lens in the player. Hope this can help.

Kind Regards

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,

You have probably changed the alignment of the laser.
It sounded like the laser was weak anyway.
It should be repairable.
Lasers can be realigned.
If the unit is more than 4 years old and had a bit of use, I would try and replace the laser.

CD is skipping


Probably need to clean the lens inside the player. If you have compressed air you can GENTLY spray inside the tray to remove dust, otherwise go to Walmart and buy a CD cleaning kit to clean your lens. If it still skips then you might have a bad disc or player

Hope this helps

Plays cd's but lots of skipping going on. I tried cleaning with a CD player disc cleaner that I got today. That didn't help. None of the CD's skip in another machine. Thanks!!


When optical lens got dusty or thin layer of dust on lens, cd starts skipping, as you tried cleaning with lens cleaner cd but no result.
You need to open the unit and clean the lens with good quality cotton bud / swab with care.
Still no joy, replace optical lens.
