CD Drive not working
Hi all! I have the Wave IV (417788-WMS) but the CD drive has some issues. First it would try reading the disc for about 10s until it said unable to read. I realized that it wasn’t always spinning the disc. I opened it up and cleaned it a bunch, including the lens and rollers. For 1 minute, it actually worked and then suddenly stopped. I made the worst mistake of trying to open it up again and this time the floating upper disc (that magnetically holds the disc to the motorized spinner) came loose from jts holding mechanism. While trying to get it back in, I’ve bent the metal holding prongs and now I cant get the floating disc to stay up when no disc is inserted. Even when the metal disc clamps the CD down now, I hear the motor trying to spin, but the disc wont move
Im very stubborn — I have no desire to pay $104 for Bose to fix it. If I can’t fix it myself then I plan to part with it. Anyone have any suggestions for me or guidance on how this could be fixed?
