1997 acoustic wave CD-3000 serial number


Acoustic Wave CD-3000 (1997)


United States


CD-Player clicks and starts to play, then stops and keeps clicking. IT IS NOT THE CD! I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL THAT WORK IN OTHER "OLD" MACHINES. I have reset the unit by unplugging it, waiting, then plugging it back in. The problem is that BOSE doesn't recognize the serial number on the back of the unit: [SERIAL NUMBER REMOVED BY MODERATOR]. So I can't check if it's something they fix.


Firmware Version


App Version


What devices were you using that were affected and what version are they on (e.g. Samsung Galaxy S9 on Android 11, iPhone X on iOS14, etc.)

Hello Tbone123456789,


Many thanks for reaching out. 


I'm sorry to hear you're having issues with your CD3000 system.


To troubleshoot this, I recommend using something like a CD Lens cleaner - the lens on the system may be covered in dust/debris which could lead to incorrect disc readings. If this doesn't do the trick, service is generally recommended. Regrettably, however, due to the age of the model, it actually pre-dates our serial number conventions so it will not be readable by our online product identifier. In addition, we no longer carry spare parts so repairs are no longer possible.


If you continue having issues, I recommend getting in touch with the local support team in your region to discuss your options. An upgrade to a newer product may be possible in instances where a repair cannot be facilitated. 


Thanks 😊.
