Hi , I`m Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

I`m afraid that this usually indicates a weakening laser /optic bloc on the player unit and although you could try one of those cleaning disc , it is my experience that it doesn`t usually solve the problem or for a short time only .

Beside replacing the whole system you could possibly use an external cd player .

You did not give me the model number but usually those Bose wave radio do have an AUX input where you can connect a MP3 player , Ipod etc. and also a CD player
