Hi...
That one is going to need Tech service.

I've worked on several of the NAD players.

Sounds like a focus or gain adjust needed.

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.

HELLO I AM HAVING STATIC WHEN I RECORD OR MAKE A CD NOW * IT STARTS ABOUT HALF WAY THRU THE CD I AM MAKING* BUT IT'S NO WAY OF KNOWING HOW IT'S GONNA TURN OUT TIL I AM COMPLETED THE ENTIRE CD* WHAT IS...


The 'static' is the unit's error detection, -correction and -concealment strategies being exceeded so it puts out the best digital-to-analog translation it can come up with.

You could prove that by playing it on another player and if you get a non-identical result (for example, it starts making the noise at exactly the same point) the data may be marginal but the player's abilities may differ.

If it IS exactly the same, the data is certainly corrupted.

I'd suspect the media. Is it name brand or CD's-r-us cheapo media?

NAD 5100 monitor wont eject


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.

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?

Nad c520 high pitched ringing


Hi, From your description, it sounds as if the noise is coming from the circuit that controls the display backlight. If I recall correctly, the C520 has an EL backlight just like the C521 (which I have one of). On the front of the circuit board, there should be a little yellow trimmer potentiometer that controls the brightness of the display. It may be that the noise will go away if the brightness is turned down some. If  the noise varies as you turn the controller, but doesn't go away completely, the backlight may need servicing.

A copied CD why will it not play in a certain make of car


It is probably because the CD player in that car will not play Cd's recorded on a computer or home CD recorder. There are lots of CD players out there like that still. You will need to get a car stereo that plays CD-R and CD-RW. That is the only solution.

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 !!
