Loosen 4 screws on bottom. You may want to take the two front ones out. They are phillips head. Drop the botom portion of the changer down about an inch or so. You will see all the disc that are stuck. Take a pair of micro plyers and simply grab the edge of the disc and gently pull and it will come out very easily Be sure and grab the very edge of the disk so as not to damage it. It took me all of 5 minutes to remove the disc in a 3 disc changer. What caused it to become stuck in first place is another question. You shoud have a green light beside each slot that has a disc in it.

The laser pickup unit [Optical Pickup Unit] is faulty. Bose uses a special type. You can't get it from open electronic spare part market. It is best to get this set repaired by the authorised service center for bose at your town.

Obviously the laser reader in the unit is picking up interference from dirt or misalignment. You may have to open it up to get to the aser parts to clean them.

When it is broke it will do that, I mean need to buy another if it does it with all discs. It may not be reading anymoree and therefore says the message you get. Try to load from the my computer as well as desk top and see if anything works. Do you have the number to the company??

There should be an option on the remote or the top of the system.

Had the same problem with mine.....turn it over in your lap and give it a slap..not to hard. that should work. If not, remove the cover and flip the release button located in back. good luck!!

Could it be the CDs you can't play, are burned in a PC?
Not all CD players can or will play CD's burned in a PC. Sometimes the CD player is to old, so not compatible with these CDs. Sometimes the player just does not play these CD's, because of rights protection.
A CD burned in a PC is less reflective than an normal music CD. Normal CD's do have a metal coating and are highly reflective. Burned CD's have a dye, and where the laser burned the dye, it only changed colour. Making it less reflective.
All modern CD playes should be capable of playing CD r's. But the player that is really compatible, is labelled CDr and CDrw compatible.

My first guess would be that the loading belt is slipping. This will prevent the cd from loading completely and thus won't read. The belt costs around $2-$3. Care must be taken when opening up this unit.

Let me know if you need any additional info.
