NAD 5100 monitor wont eject

My NAD 5100 monitor series CD player recently decided it didn't like ejecting CDs (maybe it just likes weather report)

anyways I'm tired of listing to music through my Ipod and would like to get the CD player working again.

when I push the eject button the door seems to move a fraction of an inch and a horrible griding type noise emits form the machine. seems like a mechanical problem with the door, as the current CD still plays fine.

recommendations? can I fix it myself? should i just take it somewhere?

Hi ntravers9

You could fix this yourself, in saying this of course, you will need to also source a new belt for the player ( I can help you there too) That is probably what is preventing the Cd tray from opening. If you where to remove the lid, and give the transport a little assistance in the direction that things initially start moving, then you can be sure that the mechanism is not damaged in any way, and that a lazy belt is the source of you problem.

Do this if you are into fixing it yourself, to see for sure what is happening and we can go from there.

Sony CDP-C910 will no longer play cds or eject changer cartridge


Mine did the same thing. My player was primarily used in the garage and the cold weather may have caused my player to do the same thing. I just fixed my player. I removed the top cover and looked at the CD in the play position. In the upper right corner from the CD, you will see a spindle motor with a belt on it. Gently spin the motor back and forth carefully with your finger. I rotated it a half-spin in either direction, careful not to dislodge the belt. When I turned the player back on, the mechanism operated as it normally would and began playing the disc. I was able to eject and reinsert the magazine without any issues, solving the problem. Hopefully that will work for you.

CDs get scratched when instered/ejected in the players


Sounds like something inside the deck is out of place, and is scratching the cd. Please bring your decks to an authorized service center to be checked out.

The cd player will not load cds.


i've had cdj-100s for a while and i am familiar with cd loading issues... flip the turntable, on the underside there's a sort of key, it's ur CD eject pin, u take that and poke it in the hole in the front... that should take care of the stcuk cd, now the problem i'm having is, IMO, a derailement in the ejection system.... basically what's happening to us is that the 100s is in CD in mode... I've tried the key method, i think mine is totally all over the place, i've pressed eject and kinda pushed the cd in, i got it to run, play music (so lazer's not broke) and it would eject fine but then automatically go back to CD in mode and lock the drive.

i'm gonna take it completely apart and rebuild it... i'll post back with answers, if any!
