Hello, and sorry you're having problems. We are now connected on this website- which saves you money over having a Tech come to your home, and in many cases we can fix the problem you're having. In other cases, these things do require additional parts to fix. But I can help you with that as well.

The Bose 5 disc changers are designed with a proprietary connection that only allows them to be connected to a Bose Wave music system- this cable feeds the signal to the Music System and also allows control of the Changer- there's no way to control or use the changer without the Music System unfortunately. So, you would need to purchase one of the Bose Wave units at the link below in order to be able to use your Bose CD changer- this is the same with all Bose accessories:

I'm sorry there's not a quick fix for this, but I just wanted to give you an accurate answer so you could be on your way.
