I had the same problem yesterday on my new Bose Wave Music System. I just kept on pressing reinsert everytime the CD got rejected and suddenly it started accepting CD's again.

SOURCE: Cd "not playable" on Bose Wave AWrcc2

Sounds like a weak or bad optical pick-up. You could try gently cleaning it, but you'll probably have to send to Bose for repair.

Hi,

You can try clean the optical lens by removing Bose top cover ( make sure power off your device before remove the cover). Now instead of using cleaning disk, you can using cotton **** with cleaning lens liquid. Wipe clean the lens ( 2-3 times). After it gets dried, you can try your device. If still no joy, your optical lens is defective and need replacement.

Regards,

A put in a cd and after about 40 seconds it stops playing a gives me an error signal.


Hello and good morning,

The Error it is saying, is player is dirty.
In the past what I have done and works 99 percent of the time, is I go down to like radio shack or best buy or almost any electronic supply, even stereo install stores will normally have a CD cleaning kit that comes with a fluid that you wipe on the blank CD with the applicator or towel it has in the package. What you will be doing is putting this blank CD that is designed ( with the cleaning solution) to go through your player and clean all the controls and contacts and components. You might have to run it through a few times, then when you think you are done and its is now clean, put a brand new CD or a CD that you know for sure it works, and try and play it again. 99% of the time, this will solve the problem. I hope this helps for you. Rock On!! Mike from fixya.

I copied some music to a disk with 4 different formats but the bose radio wont play any of them.


The Bose Wave Radio doesn't have a CD player. The Bose Wave Radio/CD does.

It will only play standard music CD's with standard CD Audio on them.

The manual is available at Bose.com.

I have had a boise radio abdcd olayer for some time and know very little about its operations. today i played a cd and left the house and expected it to stop as it usually does. however, it keeps on...


With the typos and all it's just a guess, but I'll assume you mean the Bose Wave radio.

I suspect the CD Mode button has been pushed so that the mode is set to REPEAT.

The manual for the Bose Wave Radio / CD is here:

Have a Bose wave Music Sys model AWRCC2 with stuck


Yes I think you can, get out your tools and take apart the unit, what do you have to loose you can always take it to a pro if you can't get it out. Be careful to unplug the unit. Don't force anything when you take it apart, be careful not to break any parts, put all pieces back together as you took them apart. Should be very straight forward if you are careful at what you do, get a bowl to put small parts in. Good Luck.....

My front loader reads disc error or unplayable no matter what disc I insert. It worked just fine for about 2 years. It doesn ot get heavy cd use, but everyday radio/alarm use.


To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
  • The Wave® music system is designed to play commercial CDs, CD-Rs, MP3-encoded CDS and CD-RWs. If your system has trouble playing MP3 CDs, make sure the discs were recorded with compatible formats. See Cannot play MP3 CDs


  • The system may not be able to play certain CD-RW discs. Playability is dependant on how the disc was recorded, including the format it was recorded in and the actual disc used for recording.
    Note: iTunes defaults to AAC as the encoding format. In order to use iTunes to make CDs that will play on the Wave® music system, you’ll need to change the format to MP3 How to Choose Import Options


  • Different brands of CD-Rs and CD-RWs use different materials which may affect the ability of a player to read them. If you are burning your own CD-Rs or CD-RWs, experiment with different brands of discs


  • If a commercial disc won’t play, check for scratches, fingerprints or other physical damage. Try the CD in another player. If it still won’t play, there may be a problem with the disc


  • Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug the system back in
