Bose Lifestyle 20
Series Music System Repair - CD Magazine Won't Eject or CDs Won't Play
Your Bose Lifestyle 20 CD magazine will not eject and you just hear a buzzing
noise as the CD magazine tries to eject or you are unable to play CDs that are
in the unit.
This repair should be compatible with other Bose Lifestyle
Series Music System units that have this same look and body style, if in doubt,
and inquire about your specific unit.

What People Are Saying about this Repair...
Hello D. Harrison,
I bought the fix for the CD changer and couldn't be happier. Thanks so much for
making your wisdom available to the masses. Even though we've had the Bose
Lifestyle 20 system for over 10 years we really never use the CD. Since I was
having a Christmas Party, I decided to load it up and play it during the party.
Well, it quit on the 2nd CD. After contacting Bose support I was totally
disgusted because they said they quit making parts over 5 years ago and they
were unable to accept us returning the unit to them for them to fix. But they
were willing to give us a 50% discount on a new $2495 system. Isn't that just
lovely of them??!!! I promptly got on Ebay to see if anyone was selling their
old unit and your AnyoneCanFixIt came up. I wish I could say a thousand Thank
You's for saving us so much money. The pictures were awesome and the directions
were too, especially for me because I'm a visual learner. It was exactly as you
described. I already recommended your site to other friends and will continue to
do so every chance I get.
Again, what a blessing you are to share you information with those of us who
can't stand to pay others for what we can fix ourselves, and for saving us tons
of money from having to buy more equipment.

Dear Anyone Can Fix It,
Can't thank you enough for your help in solving my problem for my Bose Lifestyle
Model 20. Not only that I saved a lot of money, It gives me a great pleasure of
listening to my favorites music thru my Bose Lifestyle Stereo.
Your simple and precise instructions of how to fix it made it easier for myself
to solved the problem. It made me feel good that I have done something that I
never expected in my whole life.
Thank you again and I wish you the best for your future endeavor. Nice doing
business with you.

Duane - THANK YOU! As I noted in my previous email,
BOSE response to my stuck CD magazine was 'less than helpful'. Basically, I was
told that since this is an older product, they no longer offer service and the
only choice that I had was to pay $1,499 for a replacement unit. Spending $19.99
for your instructions seemed a bit more reasonable.
I have to tell you how much I enjoy your style of instruction. The pictures are
clear (and exactly matched what I found as progressed) and the written
instructions were precise (and sometimes quite humorous!). I sincerely
appreciate the caveats that you added regarding the spring, face plate and door
cover. I was able to 'disassemble' and repair my Bose unit within the 20 - 40
minute time alloted.
It is working perfectly and my husband was suitably impressed.
Please feel free to use this testimony on your website - I can't thank you
Jamie Butler - your new biggest fan.

Another satisfied customer...
The money paid to fix the Bose was well worth it. Bose wanted $300 to fix it.
I just finished fixing the Bose system for my friend. He and his wife were so
pleased. The fix worked perfectly. Thanks so much.

SOME VARIOUS FEEDBACK
Bose Lifestyle 20 Series Repair - both the display
and CD repairs....
I first purchased your fix for
the Bose Lifestyle 20 CD changer off eBay. Then I purchased the display
repair of the website. I just wanted to let you know that the fix for both
went very smooth. I purchase the items mentioned from Radio Shack, followed
the instructions, and the unit is now fully functional. I am very pleased with
the ease of instructions and the detailed pictures. It made the repair a snap,
even for a novice like me! Anyone that has a repair need, I will definitely
recommend your site to get instructions
Thanks a lot for having a complete detail oriented set of instructions
available to make repairs easy, and affordable for the everyday Joe!
I wouldn’t mind at all if you used
the comment on your website. As far as I am concerned, the cost for the
instructions for someone to repair it themselves is well worth it. Way better
than sending into Bose, and having to wait for it to come back. This was
minimal downtime. So yeah, go ahead and use the comment. I hope it will
inspire other people to purchase your product, as it is well worth it!!
