The first thing to do is unplug it for one minute. Hold the eject button on the main unit while you plug it back in. This will reset the radio.

If the problem is still there, try a store bought lens cleaner. This will clear any dust off of the lens, and will sometimes fix the problem completely.

If you still have the same error, it means the disc laser needs to be replaced. You'll need to call and get an RA number and shipping instructions. Bose charges a flat fee (usually around $100) to fix it, and if they cannot fix it, they will offer you a new radio at an incredibly discounted rate. Call 1-***-***-****.
