Question about Nakamichi CD-500 CD Player

1 Answer

CD Error I just purchased the Nak CD500 and after only 6 CD plays I am getting a whinning noise then a CD Error. The CD stops playing and is ejected. This mostly occures while driving but it will eventually do it at rest. Has anyone experienced this and what is the fix.

Re: CD Error

Return it?

my first CD-500 had problems too. i just returned it and got a new one and the new one works perfectly.

it seems these stereos are hit-or-miss. i believe they are made in Malaysia now, not Japan, and that Nakamichi is not really 'Nakamichi' any more.

but i still love my CD-500.

Hi graz,

If your unit has a SRC button to the right of the CD clot, try holding this down for a few seconds - works on mine!

The CD45z does not play MP3's ....Nak is about SQ ...since MP3's are poor quality ...this doesn't fit with what Nak is about.

Cd will not eject!

hey, i aint sure how to get it to play again but to get the cd out, you will see a small round hole stick a paperclip straight in there and it will pop out on most models.. All the best John
