Question about NAD T512 CD Player

Disc Error/no disc messages

My problem is simple, the Player (T512) does not reconize any audio cd's at all it simply says "no disc" when they are inserted. DVD's load fine at first, the player reads them spins up, then spins back down and auto ejects the DVD, with the message "Disc Error". I opend up the player, and cleaned the lense, I started the player without it's cover and to me all mechanism's appear to function normal in the loading process. The only thing I've taken note of is that it seems that the player makes more noise the unsual when spinning up, a kinda humming sound that I dont think it has done prior to this problem. It should also be noted that this problem has increased from being a small problem where I had to reload the DVD/CD every 5th time or so.. to now .. where nothing will work at all. I have a feeling this is not something I can do anything about, but if anyone could confirm my worries, cheers Mort.

Re: Disc Error/no disc messages

Hai there. I've got exactly the same problem with my T512. Some addition problem on my player: it is very sensitive for copied cd's. While playing it makes some cracking noise. I need to admit the disc is slightly damaged. But on other cheaper players it plays fine.

I've got 2 more questions:
- "Iceshard" did you manage to fix the problem??
- Is it possible to upgrade the firmware of the player??

Thanks a lot !!!

My hk 30 player tray flashes (disc error) with every digital audio disc. help

Often times the tray and pickup lift assembly are related and there is a cam alignment. IF you pulled out with force the tray the alignment may have been upset to where the cam is not completing the lift of the Pickup and if not in the right position the laser will not be able to focus. The correct solution is at a Technicians bench where a new belt could be put in, lubrication that is required and some cleaning will be done.

You can try other brands of audio cdr but it sounds like your laser is on it's way out. Some find cdrw's still work after cdr's have stopped being recognised.

How to burn from TV onto DVD

Idealy would be to have a DVD-recorder, so you can record TV program (and signal from other sources, of course). Also, you can program it by timer to record TV program. You can by DVR with hard disc, or cheaper without HD and record it to DVD+/-RW (you can rewrite it up to 1000 times).
