Bose Wave Radio w/single CD player on top

The CD player will no longer play a CD. It spins but won't play. I found traces of soda that may have dripped inside player.

    Yes, we do have the same problem. I would think that a player that warrants the name BOSE, would last alot longer than this one did. Especially when you pay over $500.00 for it. Nothing has spilled, it simply stopped playing. The radio works fine. The cd spins and the display says DISC. I did try to slide the lens back and forth and cleaned it with alcohol and a q tip. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Ms. Diane Reif, Audubon, N.J.

    Same problem as others. The CD player itself is substandard. I'm not sure I fully understand the suggested fix that involves lighter fluid and new grease. Can anyone explain further?

    I have a very similar problem with a top loading bose single cd player. Some difference in n symptoms are that it will read some tracks while not playing on others. Also, at times it will read no disc. The most consistent symptom is that it will play the first several tracks, and then it basically go silent. You must forward several tracks, and it will then eventually begin playing again. Any suggestions? I am going to change the battery after I post this to see if this helps.

My Bose Wave Radio/CD developed this problem about a year ago. I don't use the CD player much and kept the unit clean. The disc spins but, the system does not read it. Cleaning the lens with cotton did not help.

Read that Bose charges $75 to fix this problem.

The problem of won't read ; won't play ; and "no disc" displayed is in the mechanism in the roller that moving back and port bringing the lense set .The roller is under the tray which you put the discs. The old grease their is hardened already that cause abnormal travel of roller. Clean that by using a lighter fluid or like that fluid,, in order to take the old dirt grease and replace it with a new one, a first class grease type-A grease put only little amount in the roller. Wipe the lense with a use of cotton buds without any chemical use .Try this solution so performance will be better.. feel free for asking assistance rate me a fixya ...

You have done what i would have suggested, the Bose Wave unit will need to back to Bose for service, and there is a good chance they will need to replace the laser pickup assembly and cost should be considered even thoe it is top of the line.

Non-working CD in Bose wave radio


Try replacing the battery on the bottom of the system - alot of people miss it because you have it constantly plugged into the mains, but replacing this (somehow) re-sets the system, and 9 times out of 10 solves the issue.
