Question about NAD C521 CD Player

Drawer opens when the player is switched on

Hi there,
When i switch the cd player on (without a disc) it reads for a cd, for about ten flashes of the digits, then opens the tray. If i insert a cd then shut the drawer it does the same thing- just ejects the tray. Read elsewhere that it could be the drawer belt, though the drawer seems to be shutting fully.
Any ideas or comments greatly appreciated. Regards, Marc

Why does my yahama cdc-505 cd changer not play cd, or change tracks


This is a result of the deck kicking out you disc as an unacceptable media. This usually means that it can not read the data on the disc or the necessary TOC (Table of Contents).
The other possibility is that your draw in detection switch has gone bad and when the processor- control type, tries to load a tray or close the drawer it is not getting the door closed signal. Depending on how the unit is programmed it might just sit there and do nothing or in your case throw the disc back out.
It is kind of telling you it wants to go see a Technician.
It could also be a bad belt that loads the Pickup assembly- it might be good enough to move the drawer in and out but the Pickup assembly needs more torque and it might not be there.

Player will not play a loaded CD and No CD message comes up Also CD drawer opens and shuts on it`s own !!!


the tray opening by itself could be a faulty limit switch on the tray mechanism

the switch tells the system if the tray has reached the open or closed position.

if it closes then opens itself then this is the most likely

check that first

could be closing then opening without actually loading due to the switch

you will need to open it up to find the switches

usually at the bottom front were the tray goes in

drawer is out of alignment...some players have timing marks to align the gears(similar to engines)...but without a service manual..it may be complicated...you can try to realign the drawer...there is a limit switch that tell the player when the drawer is fully open and one that tells the player when it is fully closed....a good way to try to realign is to move the drawer one tooth at a time and trying it..until it lines up

Player will not read cd . Cd will not spin


Without me seeing it, it usually cannot read the disc and is caused by a defective, or needs to be adjusted or cleaned, laser assembly as long as it is every cd put in it. It can also be the disc spinner motor. Either one of those is the most likely cause. :)

Cd player drawer will not stay engaged when a disc is inserted


By not engaged i'm assuming you mean that the disc draw closes then opens again almost immediatley. This would indicate that the disc draw limit switch is not being activated by the draw or the switch has failed.
This is usualy a small sub-miniature micro switch activated by the draw itself, Sometimes a very light spray of switch cleaner into the micro switch will effect a cure. The switch gets a fairly hard life so it is more advisable to replace the switch.
