I have a Bose Wave which cd player does not work. When I put it, reads but shows the message “Not Playable”. I have tried everything: clean the lens, unplug for cord, reset, tried to plug away from electronic devices. Literally EVERYTHING!!! Radio is good, no problem. Interesting used to work very well. Someday started not reading the CDS. I have brand new ones and does not wok.

What else I can do before smash this sound, which I love… ;-(

The brush may remove any dust on the lens, but there is often a film as well. Use a cotton swab with some alcohol and gently clean the lens. Do not apply too much pressure as the lens is held in place with very fine wires. If the brush helps to allow a CD to play, the cleaning should be a bit more effective.

Report back with the results of the cleaning.

Cleaning the lens w/ rubbing alcohol on a soft cloth fixed the problem! The CD player works perfectly. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
