Question about Bose Lifestyle 20 System
I would like to open the case of my Bose Lifestyle 20 system, to take the CD cartridge out. How do I do this? I do not find any screws!
Hi- I had to also remove the CD cartridge. A Pain! You can easily remove the case cover. You need to carefully remove the LED lens from the front by using a small putty knife to depress the expansion pins on the right and left sides and pry the lens cover up. Then, use the putty knife to lightly pry up the aluminum top cover. There are 4 nylon pins affixed to the aluminum cover by double stick tape. They are approximately 1.5" from the corners. Lightly pry up each corner to remove the top cover and you are in. There are no screws. Don't gorrilla the thing or you will bend the aluminum. Cheers!

I followed lytebrite's instructions (excellent by the way) and removed the magazine.
I reinserted it and the system made a bunch of whiring noise and was cd loaded. I removed the cd player assembly from the unit and looked it over. On the bottom of the assembly I saw a small gear on a motor shaft that was riding on top of a larger gear not fully engaging it. I fiddled with it and got it to go back down on the motor shaft fully. Now we have a working 6-cd player. The wife is happy.
If anyone wants to see a picture of the motor gear assembly that was messed up on my player let me know.

You dont have to open it, i have the same problem and my 6 disc magazine won't come out. I tried re-setting it by powering it On-Off but no use. My system is a Lifestyle 20. Here's the solution. all you need is a small flathead screwdriver long enough to reach the notch.
1. Turn the media center unside down so that the "Manual Magazine Release" is in your upper right hand.
2. There Is "NO" latch to release so don't panic,(i did)
3. Locate the two small rectangular "Open Slot" on the side. (You need to use the Top One)
4.Using the 'Long and Slim" size screwdriver (or whatever long wire you have enough to reach inside)Push the little "U" or "Y" Shaped metal Upward (Below the Manual Release" Tag)
5. Presto, the magazine will come-out. If you have a problem, e mail me and i can walk it through with you. Hope this help, i was about to ship mine to Bose...

Here is a solution that worked for me. Turn the unit up side down, in the back right corner the is a narrow long slot with the label "Magazine manual release" next to it. Take a thin object and push the lever in the bottom back. This will release the magazine. I had to pry a little bit at the corner of the magazine to get it out, but it worked.
