Question about Bose Lifestyle 28 II System
Hi I hope someone can help me . I have a few years old bose lifestyle 28 system . i can play CD with no problem but once I place DVD inside .i can here it spining and then reads "no disc". So at this point i can watch any dvd movies I have tried old and brand new dvd movies. I would sometime do this last years I would then unplug it and then it would work. Can someone suggest how I can open it and clean or grease or whatever to fix this problem. otherwise I am going to have to buy another unit. I await your reply thanks Capt Gene PS everything else with this bose 28 unit works perfect.
My brother i am not familiar with that model but due to my electroincs experience all dvd players are make up of the the same principle.there is a flat strip that leads from the lens of your dvd player kindly remove it and replace it this strip is probably broken after doing this get a dvd lens cleaner and clean your dvd lens and your on if you cannot do it your self take it to a tech os that they can handle it.this job should cost about $75.00 US. enjoy Henry Thomas from Belize

I just saw Nuck suggestion, here is my experience with Bose Lifestyle 25 system: I was able to pry open the top panel that is held in with four plastic "Christmas-Tree" type retainers used to hold car interior panels to the doors. I inserted a small flat blade and little by little I got each side up and off. There was a piece of double sided sticky tape near the front just behind the display panel also holding down the top cover. I removed the four screws holding down the CD mechanism and lifted it out, which was resting on four springs. I found a little delrin gear that had slid to the end of the motor shaft, not meshing with it's mate gear. I slid the gear back down the shaft to mesh with the other gear, but noticed the gear slid very easily. Closer look found the gear had a tiny slpit from one end to the other along the shaft. Since no parts are available, I used some epoxy to not only glue the gear to the shaft, but also put epoxy around the hub of the gear to help hold it together. Delrin is a very sturdy material and I expect this to last for quite a while. I cleaned the rubber rollers and blew out all of the dust. I found the manual magazine release hole just under and to the left of the eject button. I drilled a small hole in the front of the unit housing to allow a paper clip to access the release with the unit assembled. All works great and once again enjoying my Bose Lifestyle 25 system.

Hi Capt Gene, Cleaning the laser lens is a good idea. Try to clean it with a 70% alcohol dipped Q-tip carefully. Or with specific repair kit, something like: http://www.shopping.com/xPO-Alera-Technologies-Aleratec-Disc-Repair-Plus-Cleaning-Refill Now about opening it, I could only tell my experience with my Lifestyle 20 system: I took the entire case off of my Lifestyle 20 system as the CD Changer Manual Release would not work. I removed all silver covers by carefully prying (glued on). Removed the there Phillips head screws in-line from left to right. Then I used a slot screw driver to pop the tabs under the end silver covers. Now I had an access to the motor and you can genteelly clean or grease Hops it help. Nuck. P.S All Bose could do was offer the $200 repair, which I refused
