SOURCE: Not Recognising a CD

I got a second hand 541 a few weeks ago. After many hours of listening pleasure an no problems at all, the machine stopped spinning CD's, both copied ones and original ones.

The sollution for my problem was simple after some figuring out.

Open the CD tray.
Power off the unit with the tray open.
Open it up.
In the CD frame in the back there are 2 srews that hold the CD engine unit in place. I untidied these screws just a little bit.
I also untidied the screws that hold the cd clamp cover on the top a little.

After this it loads all my CD's fine again.

SOURCE: dvd does not load

some times its because of the CD (it cannot read the CD) all you have to do is try a different range of CD's to see what the prob is if it still doesnt read it may be coz of a scratched CD / Lens!!!!

SOURCE: NAD CD 5425 - No Spin - Sometimes

I've dealt with this type issue quite a bit.
Believe it or not the drawer belt needs to be changed.
If the drawer isnt drawn all the way into the unit...the disc motor wont spin and ....you get rejected

How do I connect a cd player to both a tv and an audio amplifier so Ican play either Cd's or DVDs?


Does the TV have a line audio outpot (red and white jack)? If so feed the amplifier input from there.

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.

Display screen on 501 no longer working


Needs 2 new bulbs. Very common on older NAD players.
If you look very closely you'll see the display is infact working
but just not lighting up hence the need for new bulbs.

Second hand NAD player worked well at test. Arrived at home no reaction when power on. Led turns first green, then orange. Doesn't react at all...


If it's the C541i version then there should be a switch on the rear of the
unit.
Flick this switch and all should be fine.
I think it's something to do with interconnecting other NAD products
why this switch is used.

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

My NAD cd player CD slot goes in and then opens...it does not retain the CD inside to play...


Hello
This fault is due to loose tray loading belt or weak loading motor. You just change the loading belt with same type. Never use a belt more than tight. Use the same size. If belt changing does not help, replace the loading motor. OK.

NAD C521 on / off button light


"POWER ON: Press this Green button to switch on the power to the disc player from Standby mode. The LED will change from Amber to Green, and the EFL display will illuminate."

So besides the L.E.D. the unit has another visual indicator that it's turned ON, the display lights up. Is this worth pursuing a fix?

Nad 502 CD will not recognise and play CD every time


HI.This will occur when the optical assembly becomes unstable. this ((Whole One Piece)), assembly incorporates the spin/load motor, optics housing /arm, tracking device and tracking rail. This is connected to the loading dock assembly. This 'NO Disc' or CD NOT PLAYABLE, code is the result of a failed or burned out lens, or misaligned loading mechanism. It is possible that you have a dirty lens cap. you can try using a cleaning disk in this case to confirm actual lens failure. if the cleaning doesn't restore normal reading capabilities, this will confirm my diagnosis.

You will need to have the optical assembly replaced in this case. once replaced, your unit will be able to read and track once more
