Try a cd cleaning disc, the ones you can buy with the small cleaning brushes on them! It sounds like the laser is dirty.

Bose 2020 radio isn't connecting to 2016 multi cd changer. CD light come on but radio doesn't recognize disc 2, 3, or 4.

If your Bose 2020 radio is not connecting to your 2016 multi-CD changer and is not recognizing discs 2, 3, or 4, there are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the issue:
1. Check the connections: Make sure that the multi-CD changer is properly connected to the Bose 2020 radio. Check the connections for any loose or disconnected cables.
2. Check the disc format: Make sure that the discs you are trying to play are in a format that is compatible with the CD changer. Some CD changers may not be able to read certain formats or may have trouble reading scratched or damaged discs.
3. Clean the discs: Try cleaning the discs to remove any dust, dirt, or fingerprints. Use a soft, lint-free cloth and wipe from the center of the disc to the outer edge.
4. Clean the CD changer: Dust and debris can build up inside the CD changer, causing it to have trouble reading discs. Try using a CD cleaning disc or a can of compressed air to remove any dust or debris that may be inside the CD changer.
5. Reset the system: Try resetting the Bose 2020 radio and the CD changer. Unplug the power cords from both devices, wait a few minutes, and then plug them back in.
If none of these solutions work, there may be a problem with the CD changer or the radio. You may need to contact Bose customer support for further assistance or take the devices to a qualified technician for repair.

Cd stuck inside cd player

I had this happen on my Ford. I used a blank CD and pushed it partially into the slot to push the stuck disc back in. At the same time, pressing the eject button. I ruined the disc that was in there (scratched badly) but it did eject in the end.

My cdrom makes noise when i insert dvd

What type of noise does it make? If you hear the tray close and then the disc "spin" for a minute or so, that is normal. If it sounds like something is shaking or rattling or lasts more than 5 minutes, there is probably something wrong.

If it is an extended spin noise, the drive isn't recognizing the disc. Check if there are scratches and try another disc. If you hear a shaking or rattling, do not use the drive. It's probably better to replace the drive (check if it is under warranty - usually 1 year). This drive has an IDE connection. You will need to check your motherboard specifications to identify if you can replace the drive with a SATA optical drive (more common now) or if you need to find an IDE drive. (Note: OEM drives do not ship with the data cables or software discs, this will matter if you get a SATA drive.)

Some optical drives have a problem with the magnet that holds the disc for the laser to hold it. Some people fix this problem with duct tape; at <$20 for a SATA DVD-RW OEM drive, it isn't worth my time to fix.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment describing your sound and the computer you have for additional help.

Thanks everyone. I should clarify that the cds that will not play in the right hand tray (originals) are as pre-recorded by a record company; for example, an ABBA cd which I used to be able to play, I...

What does the lower surface look like? Does it have a lot of scratches or is it perfect? Many times the condition of the optical surface of the disc can affect the results you have. The disc is scratched can be polished. Burned disc only have about 70% of the output that a pressed disc has so sometimes you need to burn a new one.

The Bose Wave System was very expensive, and should be at least checked with someone that can give an honest assessment. It is possible the Laser Pickup Assembly may need a good cleaning, if it works you can enjoy more time with it. If it fails then it is a matter of choice.

5 disc cd changer CC4000 will not read

All players need cleaned from time totime. Do NOT try to clean it with anything other than a CD / DVD lens cleaner. They are available almost everywhere that sellsBlank media. It will clean the lens without scratching or smearing it.

Error 04 and need cds out of player

Hi,

Error 4: CD Player Overcurrent.
Allow the CD player to Cool and Try again.

Sometimes, it also Refer to mechanical disc loading problem. The disc probably hasn't been seating in the #6 carrier properly, leading to some mechanical interference when it is selected. It would seem to be properly seated now, but next time you have it out you might check it on a perfectly smooth flat surface to be sure it is not warped slightly. Try another disc in that position, one you know to be trouble-free.

I burn a lot of discs for my clients and have never had a problem with the mid or high-grade discs from Taiyo Yuden, and others. Even lesser discs like Ritek perform fairly well. Some brands - usually the no-names - fail right out of the box. One of the problems seems to be that the cheapest discs are pretty thin and subject to mechanical problems like warping.

If you use "economy" discs particularly, be sure to put a label on them. Most of the cheap discs don't have much of a protective coat on top and scratching the top metal foil finish can lead to serious playback troubles as the disc is read by the laser from the bottom.. In addition to telling you what's ON the disc, the label helps protect that critical foil.

Regarding CD stuck situation, You could try "reset", by removing the Unit & unplugging for apprx 5 minutes, then reconnect & try to eject

OR

If you are going to have the Unit Repaired or Exchanged, you should leave the CD in & be sure to tell the Repair Tech to Return it. (usually they do any how).

I do not recommend that you try this procedure, but this is how I remve "most", unless the CD trap is closed.
I will insert a 7" wire with a short 45 degree bend at the end, sideways, on top of the CD apprx 3' into the center of the CD slot. Turn the wire in the middle of the CD hole & carefully pull the CD out.
Typically you will need Repair or Exchange
& most Shops will not Repair or Exchange, if the unit shows signs of Tampering.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
