Question about Nakamichi SoundSpace 8 CD Player
Greetings; I have been a proud and satisfied owner of the Soundspace 8 for a long time now, but I have developed a problem with the CD mechanism. There is a disc in the player and I cannot eject it with the on-board button or the remote. The unit will not play any disc either. Radio works fine, as do other inputs (e.g. Aux), so it is not an audio problem - appears to be a electro/mechanical issue of some sort. I have tried a cold power restart (unplug unit from wall) to see if it would run through its POST routine, but that did not change the behavior. When I choose the disc buttons (1,2,3. etc.), the green light is on in the "one" position, but pressing 2, 3, etc. changes the "1" position's light to orange instead of changing discs to position 2, 3, etc. When I press play, the status display changes to a "play" arrow and when I press the stop/eject button, the play arrow disappears (which tells me the control panel buttons are at least mechanically functional. However, I hear no play or spin-up of the disc and when pressing eject the blue dust cover light does not illuminate and there is no sound from the mechanism (it doesn't even try to eject the disc, it is just unresponsive). The dust door does not respond to the eject command either. Any help or direction appreciated. Thanks and best regards; _____________________________________________________________ KevFrey . . . . . .. . . . . .

Hi Kev Frey, Have you checked the mechanism for a broken or loose belting or possibly a broken gear teething. With Regards, Edmund
