NAD 5355 loader not functioning due to stripped gear

Bought it on ebay.

plays great, but the disc loader is DOA as a gear has stripped. Of the four gears on the loader, it is the first one after the pulley.

Any sources?

thanks in advance!

NAD C 520 emits faint hum when I turn it on


This is not a problem but may be due to the surge current that occurs due to the charging of the power supply Filter capacitors. This might be made less with some silicone sealant. Best to have a Technician look at it as it could also mean a too high of current draw due to aged and defective Chinese Capacitors- yes the have infiltrated this business too and are the result of many a failures including flat panel display TV's and computer monitors.

I have a Sony MDS-JB which I bought new, now when i insert a disc it won't play it, plus I have a vert hard time try to get it out of the unit I have to trun it off, so I can get the disc out,\. HELP.


Pull off the top cover, then remove the inside cover of the loader mechanism and you can gentily remove it.
Your loader meahanism is worn out, you need to get another similar unit perhaps on ebay to replace it.

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?

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 !!

Nad 712 output issues - Mute flashing


The only thing I can tell you for sure is that the mute indicator always flashes (very dimly) when the receiver is off.  I have no idea why, but mine has always done this.
