I've dealt with this type issue quite a bit.
Believe it or not the drawer belt needs to be changed.
If the drawer isnt drawn all the way into the unit...the disc motor wont spin and ....you get rejected
Also the lens on the laser could be dirty.

Take it to a tech . Try a local stereo store . They should know who's best.

Happy new Years,

Scott

Hi. Hope you can help me out here. Some1 is offering to sell me his NAD C521i CD player. Its been with him for 5 years. Is it wise to get it since it is already 5 years old (at least that i what the guy is...


This cd player sound great but have in mind it is fitted with NE5532 op amps in linedriver stage, but single trafo supply, and this player is a standard production line cd player. I owned one, i liked the NAD sound, and i think if you pay something like $100-$130 you will be happy. Also you ask if you shall be aware of something, in older nad cd player displays is sometimes defect, but easy to fix. Also the laser need to be adjusted often. (as in most cd players.)
Step from track 1 to the last traack fast and back to track 1 again, listen to music parts from track 1, track 4, track 10 track xx.
If the sounud is not choppy, if there are coming sound in both speakers and otherwise it sounds good then i think you can buy it without expecting major problems.
;)

Hi, I have a NAD C541i cd player when i turn it on i get three blue line on the display, i open the draw and insert a CD disc but the blue lines stay on the display and the disc don't play. can you...


The blue lines you mention should flash when trying to find
the 'Table of Contents' of your CD, even if a CD isn't loaded.
If when a CD is loaded and these lines flash for a while without
any CD info e.g track no. / disc length then it's more likely that a problem has occurred with the laser.
Various NAD CD players use the Sony KSS-213 Laser unit
and for some reason particularly with NAD CD players, they tend
to drift out of calibration over time so what i usually do when i come across this is very finely adjust the pot trim on the laser itself and testing a CD between adjustments.

Nad cd541i doesn't always read cd's; it can tell me how many tracks/minutes there are but won't find the beginning of the cd; in this case, sometimes if I skip forward two or three tracks and...


It sounds like a physical problem in the laser seek mechanism. Possibly a sticky area on the guides. Heavy reading for all malfunctions related to optical disc...

NAD C272 AMP has little volume and sound is muddy and distorted.


Normaly this is what cause little volum and distortion. Check first if you got +68/-68V on amp module left and right Often the -68V is missing. This is caused by faulty transistor Q712 (2SA872) in +68/-68V power supply.

NAD C352 turns on but no sound


Hello,

The first and easiest things would be to check all connections.
Speaker wires
RCA Cables !!

If you are getting a green light you are getting proper power and ground connection.

Other than that the other possibility's would be internal components, capacitors ect.

I would be willing to bet something has come jarred loose. Post back after you have checked and double checked all connections.

Hi  I have a C325 BEE and it turns off after 15 min What can I do ?


It sounds like the CD player is going into standby mode. When this happens it is usually a power supply issue. Look for bad capacitors or solder joints in the power supply. If you don't know what a bad cap or solder joint looks like, take it to a NAD repair shop.

The clicking is the sound of a bad relay. A relay is an electrical switch that opens and closes under the control of another electrical circuit. There is no user solution for this. You'll have to take it to an electronics repair shop (~$150) or dump the whole unit.

Nad C542 Troubleshooting


found same problem with mine, solution .. place clean paper over the optic, then a magnet, leave for a few seconds, the build up of static causes a magnetic field in the optic preventing it tracking, have cured a few other brands with this as well .. shows manufactures are putting inferior parts in to their players, hope this helps !!

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
