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.

When i put in a cd, a message "not playable" comes


The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, over a period of time the laser pickup becomes weaker until it can no longer track the cd properly causing skipping, and plays off and on. One possible solution "if the laser lens is accessible", you can try cleaning it with a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol very carefully allowing several minutes to dry. If this fails, Bose will need to be contacted since they do the authorized repairs on their products.

My Bose Wave radio/cd won`t play cd`s anymore. The radio works great. The cd player worked tonite, the would stick in a certain part of a song. Very intermittent. Now tries to read the disc, then says disc...


"I`ve used an aerosol air can to clean thru the cd slot"What type? not an "empty" can of paint, hairspray, chemical of some sort i hope. Compressed air at most I hope. If not, that's your Bose out the window!
The lense sounds like it needs a clean, you can buy these in disc for with tiny brushes on. Made by BIB and Allsop amongst many brands

CD not playable


call bose for repair on this unit. The laser could be dirty but in most cases there is another failure. Possibly in the motor control circuit. They have a flat rate repair service.

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
