SOURCE: Not Recognising a CD

I got a second hand 541 a few weeks ago. After many hours of listening pleasure an no problems at all, the machine stopped spinning CD's, both copied ones and original ones.

The sollution for my problem was simple after some figuring out.

Open the CD tray.
Power off the unit with the tray open.
Open it up.
In the CD frame in the back there are 2 srews that hold the CD engine unit in place. I untidied these screws just a little bit.
I also untidied the screws that hold the cd clamp cover on the top a little.

After this it loads all my CD's fine again.

SOURCE: NAD 5425 CD Player display light out

Hi aartman

Yes it does have backlamps.

They are soldered to the PCB so you will need a few tools like a soldering iron, philips screwdrivers, solder, and some replacement lamps. Replace the lamps with this type from Farnell electronics. They have a 15000 hr life expectancy and last alot longer in the unit. I have tried many types of lamps over the years, and found these are the best choice if you want them to last.

FOR YOUR SAFETY-BE SURE TO DISCONNECT FROM THE MAINS BEFORE REMOVING THE LID

To get access to the lamps, you need to pull the main PCB out of the chassis to then get access to the bottom side of the printed circuit board where the 2 screws that retain the white lamp reflector assembly. Change both lamps with the type I mentioned,
6ab9edb.jpg Be careful not to flex the LCD display that is now exposed, it is quite fragile with the support of the lamp reflector cover no longer in place. ... reverse procedure to reassemble and away you go.

I am more than happy to talk about this solution with you further. Just ask away. Cheers

regards
robotek

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.

The CD player will no longer recognize or play discs - or it takes ages to engage and play the disc. I think the laser is warn out. Is it replaceable, and is it cost effective to do this? Thanks, Ralph


I have the c521i with similar problem. It will play discs most of the time and sometimes can go for an hour or more before hanging up. Sometimes the disc is spinning and the laser is moving up and down (clicking) trying to read data. Sometimes the disc will stop spinning.
The replacement laser mechanism is a Sony KSS-213C and can be found by a few resellers on ebay for between $10 - 26, and also online at stores like MCM Electronics. This assembly has the laser head, gears, everything that needs to be replaced. I should get mine in the next few days. I also bought the 16 pin flex ribbon cable that is about 8 inches long that connects from the laser and goes into the circuit board. With basic DIY skills, this is a simple fix. A little care and effort is required on the laser assembly. I am told this will fix and will report back as soon as I get it installed and can verify it works.

NAD C541i CD Player plays but the sound cuts out for an instant every 10-20 secs. It eventually goes away, but it is annoying when you first play a disc. Any help appreciated.


hi, i've had a few nad C541i's and not so long since the sound on one of them cut out for milliseconds and on some occasions the sound would make the noise very much like a severely scratched vinyl record, i thought it was a faulty laser so i tried another KSS-213C laser out of a scrap kenwood and the fault persisted. to cut a long story short, i took the main PCB out and there were various dry joints. once these were resoldered i was blessed with a fully functioning player. hope this helps?

Cd skips


If the unit continues to skip after cleanig the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol, the optics are failing and need to be replaced. These units use Sony optics (KSS-213C I think) and are readily available for $25 or so. Any service shop should be able to replace this for under $100 total.
