    the red lights comes on a few seconds after the green light is on, with the brief click sound. i do not have the circuit schematic and i am in saudi arabia where electronic repair shops are hard to find. can you tell me exactly the numbers and/or positions of transistors and resistors that i should check and replace? thanks!

The voltages are wrong. You should see (0.0, +/-0.6, and B+/B-) on the 3 pins. The driver section has a problem. Check the driver stage for shorted transistors or open resistors.

yes send it back chances are there could still be a warranty on it and that should be covered by it dont mess with it that could invalidate the warranty even if its not in warranty to replace the switch wont cost much.As for the contact cleaner be careful it is flamable and an arcing power button could ignite it do this with the unit unplugged but also make sure its dry after too do not do this unless you find the warranty has expired. Hope this helps

C320 only red light goes on, doesn't switch to green and speakers start humming. None of functions work.

Hi  I have a C325 BEE and it turns off after 15 min What can I do ?


It sounds like the CD player is going into standby mode. When this happens it is usually a power supply issue. Look for bad capacitors or solder joints in the power supply. If you don't know what a bad cap or solder joint looks like, take it to a NAD repair shop.

Nad c350 no power at all


check your output stage for bad speakers cable or bare wire of cable touch the body of amp----short circuit speaker cable----bad speaker it self------ bad input cable or defective input device .
disconnect all and check if it is ok---start to connect one by one from input to outputs------if all above failed you must contact service center for help.

Amp wont switch off of stand-by


Both units have a problem with the output section. In case 1, the outputs are likely to be shorted. In case 2, the outputs are open. The low level and distortion come from you driving the speakers with the driver section of the amp. Both units will need to see a service provider.
