I have an old Bose Wave Radio with the built in CD player. Model
AWRC-1P. It is starting to have trouble playing certain CDs. It will
search and search, you can hear the mechanism, and then, depending on
the CD, will play or not. Once it plays one CD it will usually play
others until it has been off for several hours. I have cleaned the
lens several times but it only seemed to work once, so I don't know if
it was a fluke. So I think the laser is failing and I should buy a new
one. The assmebly is about 40 bucks delivered so I don't wanna just
keep buying parts to see if they are the problem. The CD player has
hundreds of hours of time on it so it seems to me a failing laser is
probable. Opinions?

Look for any markings on the assembly. Some of the Bose units used Sony optics which are still available.


I found the assembly already. Sanyo makes it. At least it has sanyo
molded into the plastic.
