Question about Bose & Wave& Music System
My volume knob only worked some of the time and it would make the volume go really loud or soft. I found a replacement volume knob encoder at mouser.com part number EC12E2424407 from ALPS (cost about 3 dollars). Unfortunately the stock volume knob didn't work with it so I had to pick up a 1" knob at RadioShack for 3 dollars. You could also use a dremel and some epoxy to make the stock knob work if you wanted to. You need a soldering iron, solder, flux (optional but recommended) and an assortment of phillips screwdrivers. Disassembling the unit takes a bit of time since the screws are really tight and small. The front black plastic control buttons/piece needs to be pulled off from the front and then disassembled to get to the volume knob. I also had a problem with the cassette eject the found where a metal gear stripped a plastic gear. I cut the motor wire to solve that problem, since I don't have any cassette tapes. Hope this helps Goodluck!
I have unplugged and disconnected the two pieces of equipment and then set up again several times. Following the "picture" instructions sheet: plugged in the two connections between the units, and then plugged the electrical cord into the unit and then into the wall. Inserted the Bose disk provided, into the Music System unit (on top), it did it's thing and automatically ejected the cd. Still, the disk will not eject. the disks that are "stuck" --now in slots 2 and 4 (#3 actually popped out during one of my many attempts at hitting the "eject" button!--oh wow)--are possibly not allowing the system to setup properly-don't know. Have contacted (email)Bose and waiting for reply...I also will be eligible to retire at age 62 in two years, so which will happen first, reply or ...
Sign me dumbfounded by my own dumbness at having purchased another Bose system in one lifetime.

What you need is a screw driver not a sledgehammer. Open the bottom plate of the system and eject the cd magazine manually. Hope this solve your problem.

I had the same problem and went to the Bose Tech Support site and found this solution. It allowed me to eject the stuck CD. The same problem happened again when I tried to enter another CD but after repeating the process below the CD ejected again and after that it worked fine.
Hope it works for you.

I had the exact same problem. I disconnected the radio from the power cord in the back, waited several minutes, reconnected the power cord and my radio had sound!!
