My Bose Wave Radio just stopped playing CDs. I get the "disk unreadable" error when I attempt to play one.
The tech guys at BOSE told me to unplug for a few minutes then try it again. This didn't work. And since my unit can't read a disk, I assume running a lens cleaner is pointless, as it has to 'read' that disk as well. Or am I mistaken on that point? Really appreciate your input on this. Thanks!
Good afternoon, exact same problem and I did the power on/power off the last time this happened and that seemed to correct it but now this solution will not work.

I assume you have cleaned the lense and the disk can be read in another player. Either the disk is an unsupported format or the disk itself is too old to be read by that unit (some models have weaker lenses, lees tolerant at faults) .
I had the same problem with the disk unreadable error and took my unit to a authorized repair dealer about 100 miles from where I live to have it fixed. It ended up costing me about $300 to have the CD unit totally replaced which is almost as much as I paid for the unit in the first place. I am like a lot of you that used the CD very little although the unit was about 3 years old. I think Bose has a problem and would like us to think it is very rare. I bought a Lifestyle surround system about 14 years ago that has a CD and have never had a problem with it so needless to say I am very disappointed in the Wave II Radio/CD system. I am fairly certain the problem will occur again, but only time will tell.
