SOURCE: BOSE WAVE RADIO/CD

I've repaired about 10 type Bose AWRC3x (the radio/cd model with lift up lid and top controls). If the cd won't play or skips, try cleaning the lens VERY carefully with a cotton bud with some isopropyl alcohol. Let it dry then try again. This will help in about 1/3 of cases.

After that, a new laser unit is needed. They cost around 15 pounds,30 dollars, (Type SFP100s with 13 pin connector made by Sanyo). You need to have some electronics experience to take the case to bits to get the laser deck out, change the cd laser and reassemble. Basically, DISCONNECT THE POWER! Remove the 3 screws on top, turn over and carefully prise the front of the base away from the top cover with a table knife or similar. Lift off the top cover - be careful with the lid ribbon! The deck can be disconnected from its ribbon cable and wired connector very carefully. Take the deck to bits and fit the new laser head (take photos if you think it will help). Remember to unsolder the shorting 'blob' of solder which protects the new laser from static till its fitted.

On the bright side, there is no tracking etc to set up, that's all automatic so usually they work like new with a new laser fitted. I have to say this is the weakest feature on the Bose CD radio, the actual electronics rarely gives trouble.

Hope this helps Steve O'Donnell

My Bose Wave Radio/CD developed this problem about a year ago. I don't use the CD player much and kept the unit clean. The disc spins but, the system does not read it. Cleaning the lens with cotton did not help.

Read that Bose charges $75 to fix this problem.

Try replacing the battery on the bottom of the system - alot of people miss it because you have it constantly plugged into the mains, but replacing this (somehow) re-sets the system, and 9 times out of 10 solves the issue.

Bose wave awrc-1g cd player spins but does not play.


You have done what i would have suggested, the Bose Wave unit will need to back to Bose for service, and there is a good chance they will need to replace the laser pickup assembly and cost should be considered even thoe it is top of the line.

CD not playing with bose wave system but same cd playing other audio player , On bose wave music system it is appearing CD is not reading . Please advise solution


The cd assembly is the issue, over a period of time the laser pickup becomes weaker until it can no longer read the disc, one possible solution is to buy a disc cleaning kit and follow instructions in an effort to recover the assembly. If that fails the only option is contact Bose for pricing since they are the only authorized service centre that work on their own products.

Bose dosen't read the CD's. Spins but no music???


Buy a cleaning disc for your Bose system and also make sure that the CD doesn't have any dust or dirt on it. It should read the disc afterwards.

Why does the CD function on my Bose Wave Radio/CD sometimes not work even though the CD is spinning?


Hi, when the lens of the CD player is weak, it can keep on spinning and not play. what you will need to do is to get a lens cleaner and clean the lens(instructions are on the lens cleaner.

If after cleaning and it still did not work, that means the lens is to weak to perform well. It will need to be changed to a new lens.

Take care.

Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repairs. Their web site, www.bose.com, offers to repair most Wave radios for $100 or to give owners of broken sets a $200 allowance towards the purchase of a new Wave. Before spending the big bucks though, you might want to check out the new HD radios. Better sound and a MUCH lower price.

CD player not working


CD Player on my Bose Wave radio/cd just blinks CD and it appears to me that the disc is not spinning. This is the same problem that many others have already identified. I unplugged the unit and removed the battery but this did not solve the problem. I notice that there is a "platter" (part of the lid) that sandwiches the cd onto the spindle. the platter seems tight but does turn. Also, does anyone know if there is a drive belt that may have broken?

Have you tryed cleaning the laser lens with a lens cleaner?? The fact that it spins tells us that the unit is focusing but not reading the proper data. Good Luck
