I have not used my SoundWave CD player for more than a year. I just tried playing a few CDs, both new and old, but keep getting a "Not Playable" message. There are no batteries to this unit, and I unplugged the device and then plugged it back in, but to no avail. Any suggestions? Could it just be dirty inside, or is it an electronics error? Thanks!

Thanks for getting back to me! Okay great, so I would recommend trying a product reset and I am also curious to know if you have been able to play these specific CD's before? If not I would like you to test a CD that you have been able to play before to make sure it is not a compatibility issue.
When the WMS is by itself, follow these steps:
I hope this helps, please let me know how you get on!
Thank you for your update regarding this. I am so sorry that this issue persists.
The system may be picking up interference from devices connected to the same power circuit, or from devices within a few feet of it. To eliminate sources of interference, follow these steps:
- Determine which of the following devices are either within three feet of the system, or are connected to the same power circuit as the system:
- Unplug any devices on the same power circuit, or near the system to eliminate them as possible sources of interference
- For devices that cannot be unplugged, connect the Bose power cord to a different outlet; one that is not connected to the same circuit as the devices listed
- Once the source (or sources) of interference have been identified, it may be possible for the system to be connected to the same power circuit, though it would need to be kept at least three feet away from the other devices and their power cords
If this shows no sign of improvements, I would recommend that you contact your regions Bose product support team where an agent will do what they can in order to get your Wave System running smoothly once again.

Just had the same thing happen to me. It stopped in the middle of a track and now I keep getting the message whatever CD I put in. Tried updating the firmware, turning off. No joy. It’s too expensive a unit for this sort of random thing to happen
