The transport may have been forced out of alignment if jamming mechanically may require removal and reinsertion while in the open position if , but if it appears to not have the "grunt" to drive the drawer from slipping belts, you will need to change the load belts. Belts slipping are preventing the mechanism from operating correctly. Can be a tricky job if you dont do much of this sort of thing, but is within the range of most handyppl.
They are in Aussie, but you can get drive belts for any peice of gear from WES Components by mail order.

Cd does not eject from kenwood kdc-138


First if your still under warranty return for new player if not carefully remove top and bottom covers check for any clear tape holding cd door shut or Look at LED sensors blocked by strofoam or cardboard that may have gotten inside the home position guide (the tray that holds the CD) the LED's are located at the front where the door first opens and at the rear where the CD goes deepest into the player,lightly clean with cotton ball and alcohal first remove hot wire ,Now turn cd player upside down and tilt side to side listen for loose screws or other debree check make sure belts are all tight by lightly tugging with index finger turn gears only one eighth of a turn never force anything, if they move that is a good sign, by moving the gears out of position when it is turned back on it will try to find home position, reconnect hot wire and try CD player again.Do not get grease on LED's make sure there is nothing on the CD like a sticker making the cd to thick will clog the device.if still no joy hand turn the gears until the cd is all the way out.Try different CD again never force good luck

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

NAD C541 tray does not open.


if i'm right it will have the sony mechanism so if you take the lid off and unscrew the 2 screws, 1 at either end of the cd clamp and remove it, you should see part of a large cog just under the front of the cd tray, try turn this clockwise and the tray should open.
once open, you should be able to see a small plastic cover, loosen this slightly and replace the belt as this is prone to slipping on this mechanism stopping the cd tray from opening and also clamping the disc properly when closed.

hope this helps?

My NAD C 541 cd player will not play any discs. I open it put the disc in and it tries to scan and then rejects the disc and opens on its' own. There is the word 'over' in red below the track number...


It could be the belt for the tray mechanism. Tray closes then motor is pushed up to CD. If belt slips or physical mechanism is sticky CD will not spin and tray will reopen.

The CD tray won't stay shut - Tascam CD-AD500


First you do is to unplug the cord of your CD unit for 5 hours in order to drain the stored current,the purpose is to reset the unit. After the 5 hours plug the CD see to it if it open If not,just try to press down on the stop button and pressing eject button at same time and it will unlock the tray .Then the other option is to open the cover of the CD unit and unplug the unit again to avoid electricshock . When open already look for the disc platter moved it outward while driving the gear or simply push out. The drawer or door of the CD player and you will see a small circular disc which is often called turntable or disc platter.When the disc platter is out push it back and push it out you do this three times so the slider mechanism align it properly.If you do already what i said then plug it again and if works already closed the cover. The slider mechanism, depending on the age of the unit and the manufacturer, consists of the small chrome rail, a drive motor, a small gear assembly, and (in some units) a small belt that drives the slider unit via the motor. This small belt causes all sorts of problems. If the belt is broken or slipping, it can cause skipping, dropouts, or simply no start up at all. Also, if the belt breaks in the middle of the disc, the drive mechanism gets hair or dirt wrapped up into the gears, or the pick-up assembly doesn?t return to the start position (called home), the unit will (99% of the time) refuse to release the disc, causing it to become stuck inside the unit. There?s a little micro or leaf type switch located at home position that sometimes gets dirty or breaks and, causing this problem also. Hope it may help you; Regards; VOTIT DONT FORGET TO RATE;

Tray will not stop opening and closing


You have to open the cabinet ..with the power off!! with tray open look at the laser it should be in the cd home position..move the laser toward away from the spindle motor or turntable.you should see a switch with a cover over it,it may be black or white or clear..the is your laser home switch..with your finger or small screw driver gentely push the switch towards you or bend it towards you.with the cover off.plug the unit up.Watch the laser as it moves away from you towards the cd spindle, it it stops and the tray moves in, and the cd mech chucks .you should see the laser turn on and see the objective lens move up and down..if it does not..and it continues with your original problem the you have to retime the tray and loading gear..try this first..

Nad c520 high pitched ringing


Hi, From your description, it sounds as if the noise is coming from the circuit that controls the display backlight. If I recall correctly, the C520 has an EL backlight just like the C521 (which I have one of). On the front of the circuit board, there should be a little yellow trimmer potentiometer that controls the brightness of the display. It may be that the noise will go away if the brightness is turned down some. If  the noise varies as you turn the controller, but doesn't go away completely, the backlight may need servicing.
