I'd suggest taking a look at this thread http://forum.ecoustics.com/bbs/messages/1/154803.html
i.e.
"Turn the unit on. Pick it up from the right side and rest it on its left side in a vertical position. Gently tap the right side of the media console while hitting the eject button at the same time. I had to tap it hard before it would eject the cd cartridge, but it did come out with all CD's intact. I will try to pry it open and check the gear on the motor. I have had this Lifestyle 25 system for 8 years problem free before the CD cartridge got stuck, and Bose technical help told me how to get it unstuck. But they now want me to trade my system in for a new one. I'm not ready for that yet, I'll check the gear on the motor that Anonymous mentioned."

How do you open the base unit to remove the cd changer magazine


The top cover is held on with 4 clips (similar to those on a car door card) so needs to be gently prised off, this will expose screws etc to enable the bottom cover to be removed.

Ive done this with my system but it does not really help solve the problem, I still can't get to the jammed disc!!

How do I remove a stuck 6CD changer magazine?


Our Bose has a 5 CD player, So, I'm not sure if this is the same for your base unit, but here goes. You'll need: a bright light and a small screwdriver that reaches inside the chassis (or equivalent).

1. Disconnect the base unit from the system.
2. Turn the base unit upside down and find the access hole embossed with "Manual magazine release" on the CD player side.
3. Using a bright light, look inside the base unit at those access holes and find the fine spring and locate where it fastens to the sheet metal of the CD player.
4. When you find the spring you should see that it connects to the CD player chassis at the forward end and a piece of sheet metal that is on top (actually underneath when the base unit is right-wide up) of the CD player chassis at the rear end. This is the manual release mechanism.
5. Using the small screwdriver, push the release mechanism rearward to release the CD magazine from the player. The magazine should pop out.

If the magazine is not released, then the CD that is still in teh player has not been slid back fully into the magazine. In this case you'll need to plug the base unit back into power and hope that the CD is retracted, allowing you to push the release mechanism rearward. If not then you'll have to open the base unit to access the CD player.

My Toshiba ts-h653 cd/dvd RW drive failed. the


If the drive is trashed, just force the drawer open. If you don't want to do that, you should be able to disassemble the drive enough to get the disk out by removing screws... Sometimes the screws are underneath stickers, or warranty stickers, etc etc.

Cannot play DVD and stuck CD in the system! how


Most Philips DVD player and recorders have a manual release on the bottom of the unit look for a slotted hole on the bottom put a small screw driver in the slot and slide across this will release the tray.

Some older models have the paperclip hole like on all PC DVD-ROMS this will also release the tray if you have it

My cd compartment won't open.


You can manually open the door using a straightened paper clip inserted into a small hole in the door. Press firmly and the door will be released. You may have a CD stuck in there, or you may need to reinstall the driver for the CD. Or the CD drive may have failed...at least the control part that opens and closes the door.

My CD ROM/DVD on my computer drive wont open? Why not?


Try either right clicking on the CD drive icon in My Computer and see if it opens, of not put a straightened paperclip into the small hole on the CD drive face and push into open it. Does the light flash or does it make any noise. I would make sure that it isn't jammed by trying the first two. If all is good, then go into Device Control Panel->System->Device manager->DVD\CD-Rom Drives and see if your drive is showing. If it is then right click and click Uninstall and then restart your system. It should find new hardware and reinstall the drivers for your driver if it is working properly.

Cd/dvd drive wont open


You could try to manually eject the CD, may be the mechanism is stuck. Have a close look at the CD tray, there should be a tiny hole, then find a paper clip with a wire diameter that nicely fits this hole and poke it in there, this will release the CD tray and open it so you can retrieve the CD.

Hope this helps

How to open the case?


Hi- I had to also remove the CD cartridge. A Pain! You can easily remove the case cover. You need to carefully remove the LED lens from the front by using a small putty knife to depress the expansion pins on the right and left sides and pry the lens cover up. Then, use the putty knife to lightly pry up the aluminum top cover. There are 4 nylon pins affixed to the aluminum cover by double stick tape. They are approximately 1.5" from the corners. Lightly pry up each corner to remove the top cover and you are in. There are no screws. Don't gorrilla the thing or you will bend the aluminum. Cheers!

Bose Lifestyle 30 6-cd changer magazine manual release?


hi, you can release the magazine by inserting a small flat head screwdriver in the slot and pushing the lever towards the back of the unit, this will release the cd but only if ther is not one stuck in the player as it will remain halfway between the mag and the cdplayer. don't force it to comae out. remember to obviously have the dorr to the player open before you try this.
