Question about NAD C542 CD Player

2 Answers

'No disc' Have not used the deck for a while and it's under a year old with relatively light use. Tried loading various CD's and all I get after about 20 secs is the message 'no disc'. The deck has not been moved and there is no obvious reason why this should happen. Any ideas?

Leave it unplugged for 5 minutes or so (not just turned off) to empty the cache. But i need an easy solution for the slipping.

Most likely a general service is required.As it is under warranty, take it iommediately to their Service Centre. They will clean the lens. grease the Drive Mechanism and Tray mechanism. Should - in all probability clear up the problem.

More than likely with a cd player that is as old as this one is the laser may have gone bad. If you can find a replacement laser component it can be replaced. Or it could be as simple as getting a cd player cleaning disc from just about any store and cleaning it.

Out of the blue, our 3-yr old single disc Bose Wave system has begun "Reading Disc" upon insertion of a CD (this is normal); but then returns a "Not Playable" error a few seconds later. It happens with...


This _might_ be caused by dust or dirt on the read lens of the CD player. The lens projects and reads a beam of light that is bounced off the surface of the CD surface to play the tracks.

Open the lid as if to load a CD. Remove any existing CD. Direct a short blast from a can of compressed air at the lens - or you could use a small artist's paint brush and gently wipe the surface of the lens to dislodge the dust, etc. Do not touch the lens with fingers. etc. as any oils will disrupt the light - and attract dirt and dust.

Load a CD and attempt to play.

Good luck!

The disk will not eject without fiddling it out i:e a scewdriver


Yes, but if you look on eBay, the optical drives are very expensive relative to buying an old machine and using it for parts.

I have the Denon CDR-W1500 recorder and the recording side no longer functions. It doesn't have that many hours of use. The tray doesn't recognize a blank cd but both sides will playback discs. Your help...


Your original post said it was blank discs that didn't work.

Now it's ALL discs including pre-recorderd ones. THAT changes things considerably.

Is it audibly rotating the disc once it's loaded?

Disc play


Disk turntable motors will collect tarnish on armature contacts if not used for long periods. If you are experienced in electronics, I could walk you through a fix. If you are not, please take unit for service

It could be some dirt & dust on laser lens. Did you try to clean it?

RECORD DROP OUT


Just bought this CDR 570 and not use yet.

Reading the instruction manual - yes, life experience has taught me some really useful stuff! -

Under 'Discs for recording' on page 7 it says at end of section

IMPORTANT:
To ensure proper working of the set we recommend the use of PHILIPS audio CDR and audio CDRW discs only'
Roughly translated I read this to me - 'don't blame us if the set don't work using other (non-compatible) discs' !!

Unit will not start or load disc


Try opening up unit and using canned air and blow it out - sometimes simple dirt causes things like this While inside glance and see if you don't have some old tape or bits of labels that have come off and are anywhere inside that might be hanging the various working areas. Try using cd cleaning disk and vhs cleaning tape Without seeing this not sure what is causing it but may be something simple like the dust or pieces of label causing problems or the little rubber "tires" and other rubber components having gotten stretched out and slipping.

No disc


Try using a cleaning disc, if that doesnt work take apart the unit and manually clean the lens. If that doesnt work your going to have to take the unit in for an estimate. If its more then two year old and you paid less then 150 bucks for it , it probably is not worth the estimate fee. good Luck
