I've had this unit 8-10 years and has worked flawlessly til now. It has been used many hours. It will play the 1st 7-8-1l songs just fine. Then it will suddenly stop and "get stuck on a note" forever. Like when the needle got stuck on the old lp records. I can bypass it but it won't be long before it will do it again. It doesn't matter what cd is playing. Any thoughts on how to fix this problem would be appreciated.

Re: cd player gets "stuck"
Built up dirt particles like dust or smoke on the lense can cause this. Buy a cleaning kit with a disc that has brushes that you dab with a small amount of alcohol which spins in the CD player and cleans the lens.

there so so many reason why does not detect a blueray disc after you switching windows 7
1st may be your cd/dvd driver have a problem,
(solution) try to use other cd/dvd driver
2nd may be the window 7 installer you've use have a missing file.
(solution) try to re install the o.s but dont use the same cd you've use try other installer.
3rd your blueray disc is the problem
(solution) use your blue ray disc in other p.c window xp if running in xp try to use other pc using a window 7, if running in other unit may be your pc need to upgrade.
how old is the unit??? LASER OPTICALS do have a life time (hours) specially DVD OPTICALS they tend to were out faster then CD optical since they demand more output than a CD reading, pleas give more info model, year of purchase and use...
Might need a tune from bose repair man, Burnt dvds sometimes has problem but wipe normally fixes it. But cds i have't had problem burnt or orginal, scraches dont usally worry to much, Thats why thinking repair man.
Hope this helps:)
Cd normally hot from unit if its in for a while.
Nope. Its getting to the end of its days. I'm guessing by your description you tend to play your music loudly like I do. Well when you do that it causes vibration. Vibration+electronics=Short life span.
I just bought one of these DVD players today 1st January 2009. It came with a CD which was a Firmware Upgrade with instructions on how to unlock the Region 4 setting. We used the CD and it now plays our Region 1 DVD. Did you get a CD with your player?
I have the same problem. I have a 5 year warranty from the company I purchased the unit from. I am not sure if they will replace it or not. I am reluctant to buy another one with this known issue. We have enjoyed the unit for nearly 3 years with no issues.
Since it will play eventualy, I'd suspect a dirty lens. Open up the unit and carefully clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Also, try a music CD. If the CD works flawlessly but DVDs still fail occasssionally, the optics are starting to fail and will need to be replaced.
