NAD C515BEE not playing CDs and ''no cd'' message

I have the player for about 8 months and it hasn't been used much.
When I insert CDs and close the tray I get ''no disc'' message. I've noticed that the tray seems to be slightly more loose when a apply a little upward pressure when it's in the open position. I have children but I don't think that they could have caused the problem.
Any help would be appreciated.

SOURCE: inoperable cd tray on technics spl110 single disc cd player

Somehow the "gears" (side of tray has "teeth/gear" and wheel to the right of it has 'teeth/gear") which guided the cd tray were misaligned. With trepidation and fear of fully breaking it I lined up the tray and large wheeled gear to the right of tray.
At first I could get it to close to a certain point but it wouldn't go any further. I couldn't figure out what was stopping the closure but finally figured out the "teeth/gear needed further alignment.
During the repair found date CD player made was 1986 !!!! So I figured I'd just have to buy a new one. But it works like new and still sounds great
Go figure. Technics is a great brand.
What I saw as a white "wing nut looking" part had nothing to do repair. But during repair part of the front of repair dropped down and prevented closure. But there is a metal wire under tray which can be manipulated to control the piece which drops down.
Don't know how many Technics SLP110 are still out there but that's my story.

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.

On loading a cd in to my C 541 it seems to freeze, indicates 'no disc' and makes a clicking/whirring sound. Will not play anything at that point. This happens with genuine, bought CDs


Seems that your player is looking for the index on your CD.
You can try to clean the laser carefully.
If your not familiar to do that, ask somebody.

My NAD cd/dvd T550 displays NO DISC.

I have the same problem. When I insert a disk, my NAD T 550 DVD player displays 'No Disc'. It started with new disks while still reading older disks, but at some time it stopped recognizing any disk. Did you receive any suggestion yet or has anyone a suggestion?

You could try a CD lens cleaner and see if that makes a difference.
