Hi and welcome to the site, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the CD player / stereo.

The described symptom of "...wil lnot read cds or will read for awhile then stop..." would point to an internal hardware issue.

The prescribed approach is to open up the Bose and perform a manual cleaning.

Alternatively, a hopeful workaround is to use a cleaning disc for such purpose.
