Question about Denon D-M50S CD Shelf System

3 Answers

I have a Denon UD-M5 that's 10 years old but has been working fine. I have just moved house and I think it was damaged in transit - the CD display just says ERR and I can't open any of the the drives. Can't tune the radio either but that may just be because the antenna is not correctly attached. Help please!

Neither of the earlier responses actually understand the problem. What's much more likely is that, unlike a mechanically stuck drawer or derailed CD, you won't hear _anything_ when you fire up the unit. And, if you switch on the unit with any one of the 'load' buttons (rather than the power button) you'll get an ERR msg for that slot. Our unit was about the same age, so not surprising to see a similar failure. It's a tiny fuse on the top circuit board. The UD-M3 suffers from the same fuse blowing--theirs is labled PR003; on the M5, it's PR004. Look on the extreme right edge of the top PCB for a small orange resistor-looking micro-fuse with a '750' beside it. That stands for 750mA, which is what I went down to Radio Shack (The Source) and bought for $2, along with an inline fuse holder ($5). It's a small screw-together capsule with 4" leads on either end. Solder each end on either side of the blown component and you'll be back in business for under $10 and about an hour's effort.

This is a common problem with this unit. Because this unit has a Button lock that you need to switch On so this problem wont happen. Ii the lock wasnt on then the transport will have been rattling about the whole time while the postie had it and the whole thing will be mis-aligned. The only way to have this fix is to take the unit to a service center and have the mechanism re-align.

    No problem ,you can try this steps.

    Press the eject button on the player. You will notice that the tray is
    making an attempt to move. Use two fine screwdrivers, and insert them
    into the space at the sides of the tray, one on each side, and gently
    try to pull the tray out

Did you lock the CD trays/changer before transport? I hope you did not transport it with CDs inside. If you did not lock the changer or if it has CDs inside, it is most likely that it is miss-aligned. I couldn't find a service manual so you can try to re-align the CD mechanism. I will keep looking and will let you know.

As there may be other factors at play that require a more detailed explanation, I would suggest that you seek a resolution through a discussion with a qualified technician. To do this, refer to your operating manual, which should provide a telephone number for technical contact assistance. You can also go up to the manufacturer's website and make contact for advice. www.denon.com/

Try looking into the lens (power off) with a magnifying glass. If you see any damage you will need to replace the lazer/lens section as the lens will never be able to read the disc.
If it's clear it's more likely to be an electronic fault.

Maybe you accidentally break some contact(s), on display or somewhere else. If that is the problem, soldering iron should solve that. Look for any loosen wires or detached contacts.
