Question about Bose Acoustic Wave (32022) 5-Disc CD Changer
The CD player on my Bose Wave Radio/CD has stopped working. I've cleaned the eye and tried holding the lid down while trying to get the system to recognize the CD. It goes through it's usual motions of starting for CD play (showing the track screen, cycling through the volume, etc), but then just keeps blinking "CD" on the screen as if it is not recognizing there is a CD in the dock at all. Any suggestions would be a lot of help, thanks in advance,
I own a bose acoustic wave which is about 8 or 9 years old now. More and more often, disks are not being read and tracks are skipped periodically on older cds and now mostly on brand new cds. I keep the laser eye and carriage area clean and clear using canned compressed air to no avail.
The first thing i would suggest you to do is a hard reset by unpluging the the player for 30min and then try again.
If this does not solve your problem then please see if the player tries to read the disc.
Load a disc and listen.Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.
Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.
You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.
If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.
It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track.
If the problem does not get solved then you have to get it repaired.
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

It won't connect to externa l speakers directly but you could take the RCA output to an amplifier that drives them.
