92 Corvette Bose CD Player Dilemma

Guys,
I am having a strange problem with my 92 Vette LT1.
For some reason when the car is cold, CD's will not eject or play (display goes blank or sometimes shows and ERR condition). When the car heats up to
operating temperature (or after sitting out in the sun) the player will then work.
Any else experience anything like this? I tried a CD laser cleaner but that didnt work.
You think I need to replace the entire unit?
Thanks for your help.

it will eventually stop working at all, and refuse to eject your cd. it needs refurbishing, which will only typically last for another few years.
i tossed mine and replaced everything 4 years ago and got better sound too.

Bose Gold??
I've had mine repaired 3 times under warranty. But it's out again. There is a place in South Florida that will repair the Bose CD, replace all the bulbs, clean everything and use redesigned parts so the CD player doesn't fail the same way again. I think it runs around $300.00 for the service.

Ric,
My CD player wouldn't work either, and to tell you the truth the automatic adjustment of the volume for the car's speed was driving me nuts too. I went with a JVC double-din and Infinity speakers on the replacement. BUT, could you possibly provide more info on that repair place? I might spring to repair the Bose, just for grins. Company name or phone - anything. Thanks.

I like the Auto Volume :-) You have 2 settings & turn it off also.
I don't know the name of the place in FL, maybe someone will chime it. I read posts from people that had it done and they are satisfied with the service. I could probably run it down with Google though.

I had the same problems with the control head and CD player on my '94. Sent it off to them last year and all's well. Cost was $190 and shipping. That link takes you right to where you want to be. They provide EXCELLENT directions for the R&R of the unit.

Page Bookmarked :-) That was it, thanks! Cheaper than I remembered.
I've been putting off having mine fixed again, but now I also have one of the display bulbs out. That might prod me to do it. lolol

Unquestionably Confused,
Thank you very much for posting the link! That is the exact problem that I am experiencing (CD plays based on weather conditions).
Now I'll attempt to pull the unit out based on the instructions provided.
Thanks again!!
Joe

I've got a '04 ZO6. Very disappointed in the Bose system. Shit canned the whole thing. New Pioneer head (model 7600, fits the entire hole like it's made for it), 4 channel 400 watt amp under the passenger seat, new speakers in the doors and added a sub-woofer in the left rear cubby hole. Sounds awsome. Will keep the Bose system in a box for if I want to sell it. Bose is way over rated. You ought to see the speakers I removed, total crap.

console face, I figure they're inexpensive anyway, I also put in a Pioneer head unit, took the speakers out of the dash, put new ones in the kick panels, new ones in the rear corners and dropped a subwoofer in the right hand cubby hole, and a 400watt California 5 channel amp in the middle cubby hole. (No room under the seats.) It's like sitting inside a headphone. Sound is crisp and light, and even if you try to blow the doors off, you can still have a conversation. Pioneer has a good head unit.
