First of all, try CLEANING the lens. Try the easiest way first : Run a cleaning disc through it. That may just work. But if not, get a piece of very soft cloth (Tear a piece off your wife's or baby's pyjamas ) and dampen it with Methylated Spirits (sometimes called White Spirits). Wait a minute or two, then wipe it again with another piece of the same cloth, this time dry.

How do I change lens on Bose Wave CD player


You need to buy the correct replacement lens - usually on ebay is a good selection. Keywords - Bose Laser. Email the seller, and ask for help to identify which lens you need.

Then disassemble your machine, and install the new lens.

If that's too complicated for you, have a local technician do the work.

Power goes on. When I press play the DVD makes a lot of noise. Sounds like it's spinning. My grandchild stood on it! Screen lights up - says Welcome- says no card - says disc not ready etc.


Good day!!!!


That problem you encounter now is the one of the most common problem of all DVD players because of the dusty optical CD lens inside..

The easiest way to fix that is to use optical CD lens cleaner that is usually available locally on all DVD/CD disc store nearest you just ask for CD cleaner..Use the lens cleaner like an ordinary CD but you should apply the liquid cleaner that package to it..apply small amount before use or you can read the instruction on how to use it at the back of the cover..

But there some case that the CD cleaner is not enough to fix that problem because of too much dust inside so you need to open the cover then find the optical lens after that you need to wipe the lens using cotton buds or microfiber cloth don't use ordinary cloth..

This is the sample of optical lens:
2_2_2012_1_25_54_am.jpg
Follow this procedure:
1. Remove the outer casing of the DVD player. Remove the screws that mount the top casing onto the bottom of the DVD player and slide the top casing off. This will expose the DVD deck, which houses the laser pickup lens.
  • 2. Power ON your DVD while the cover is open then press the eject button..It should be in eject position to see and clean the optical cd lens properly..
  • 3. Find the lens. The lens will be glass and under the DVD clamp. The lens will probably have a blue tint to it. If you are having trouble finding the lens, you could shine a light on the components and watch for the reflection.
  • 4. Use a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol to gently wipe the lens. Just a quick scrub will do. Dry the laser pickup lens with the other end of the swab.
  • 5. Give the lens a few seconds to dry and replace the covering of the DVD player. Test the efficiency of the player. If necessary, repeat the process.

    Thank you very much,

    My Dvd rom can't detect any CD or DVD


    Hello,
    how long have you been using this player? I suspect the laser (lens) of the player. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD discs.
    To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.
    Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.
    If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.
    To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.
    Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.
    Regards.

    When I try to listen to the cd's, it won't play them. It tries to acknowledge them but the player won't play them


    CD players commonly will not recognize some types of CD, eg MP3 recordings, or maybe CD-RW recordings.

    However if this is happening with CDs that would previously play OK, then it could be

    - scratched or dirty CD surface
    - contaminated laser lens in the player
    - laser lens has become misaligned

    The last 2 need a service technician, but it may be cheaper to buy a new player.

    Hello

    Check all connections, such as from player to amplifier or receiver and receiver to speaker. Check and clean contacts on RCA jacks and cables and try a different input on the amplifier or receiver.

    Clean the lens. Use only a special CD lens cleaner and follow the instructions carefully.

    Check the traverse assembly (the metal rod that the laser travels along and the gear that drives it) if CDs aren't recognized or won't play, frequent skipping occurs at random, CDs randomly get stuck in one spot, the player can't find tracks correctly, or cleaning the lens doesn't work. Dust and lint may be interrupting its function.

    Have the laser-head assembly checked by a repair person if the traverse assembly seems intact and free of debris.Look for broken plastic parts, such as gears and clips,look for loose or broken internal connections.possibly have gears and belts replaced.
