The NAD 5000 single disk cd player will not play most cds or only plays about 1 minute or so of music on the ones it does play. I inserted a cd cleaner and it will not play that. Many times when a cd is inserted it will not read the tracks. It does read perhaps 1 in 5 tracks, then plays for 1 minute, then stops. The other scenario is that it won't read any tracks and won't play at all. Any ideas other than sending it back to the factory? Thanks

You will probably find that it is the way you are burning the CD's not the fact that they are burnt that is causing your problem.
When it comes to home made audio CD's there are two ways to go:
Method 1 (MP3 CD - only works with newer CD players):
You essentially copy music to the cd as if it were a usb stick and then click write these files to disk. This method allows for (depending on file size) upwards of 100 songs.
Method 2 (Audio CD - the Red Book method):
In method two you burn a cd in the same way that you buy most CD's from the store. This way allows you to add up to 80 mins of music/audio to a disk (method one is limited to file sizes - method two is limited by the amount of time each song takes up).
Considering that the Red Book method was made commercially available in 1982 (the same year as your CD changer), and that the MP3 CD came into play in about 1999 - it is impossible for your CD changer to support the MP3 CD (unless it has been heavily modified).
You could try to clean the laser, with a special cleaning disk. Don't try to clean a laser by opening the player, you will damage the system.
If it is a CD burned in a PC, it also can be the laser is now a bit less, not capable reading CD-R or CD-RW, and still can read normal CD's
Read my other post over CD players
Could it be the CDs you can't play, are burned in a PC?
Not all CD players can or will play CD's burned in a PC. Sometimes the CD player is to old, so not compatible with these CDs. Sometimes the player just does not play these CD's, because of rights protection.
A CD burned in a PC is less reflective than an normal music CD. Normal CD's do have a metal coating and are highly reflective. Burned CD's have a dye, and where the laser burned the dye, it only changed colour. Making it less reflective.
All modern CD playes should be capable of playing CD r's. But the player that is really compatible, is labelled CDr and CDrw compatible.
when its cycled thru them .,does it stop?does it show them on the screen with a lit circle?are they normal cds.can you select one cd to play?hold the eject button in for about 5 seconds,see if that resets it
try to play a song from original cds.
maybe you brunt it in mp3 file, or its a different format. try to burn your song to cd-r.
if still, try to use nero to burner..
if it wont play your original cds and burnt cds,then the optical lens or the board is broken.
hope I helped you.
