NAD C542 CD PLAYER

DRAWER MECH REPLACEMENT

Posted by on

  • dtaylor91 May 11, 2010

    Hi,


    Do you have the drawer mechanism to replace the current one with? Will you be replacing just the drawer mechanism, or the laser and laser mechanism as well?


    Also, if your trouble is simply the door not opening and closing, it may just need a new drive belt for the mechanism.

Maybe it is just the belt for the tray motor.

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

Vfl display not working


no display could be a problem with the inverter circuit that drives the display

usually a transistor goes bad around the display area

check the board for dry solder joints as well

sme CD players have an option to switch off the display, check its not turned off

usually a button on the unit or the remote

My NAD cd player CD slot goes in and then opens...it does not retain the CD inside to play...


Hello
This fault is due to loose tray loading belt or weak loading motor. You just change the loading belt with same type. Never use a belt more than tight. Use the same size. If belt changing does not help, replace the loading motor. OK.

Pressing the 'open' button on my NAD C542 CD Player no longer opens the disk drawer. Any suggestions to fix this would be appreciated. Regards Michael


G'Day Michael,

Having fixed thousands of CD players in my career, and also being a NAD Authorised service guy from 1989 till recent times, I can comment with some authority to your situation, and correct some of the ill found assumptions given to you already.

This unit uses a KSS213c transport. Very common and used in many machines, also relatively reliable.

The drawer load motor is not shown above. Is will be mounted on the black plastic load assembly. The drive belt/motor for it will be under the tray runners.
If you do not hear the motor run, then it WILL NOT be a broken or failing belt. However, this is the most common problem with this style of transport. I would be checking anyway to see, the load motors do free run fairly quiet with no drive belt connected. Wind the tray assembly out by hand by kicking the gears over to open the draw to see the belt/motor

Because you cannot get it to work from the remote, AND you have "open" indicator on the front panel, it WILL NOT be a faulty front panel button(never seen one fail ever!)

I have never replaced a load motor to a Sony transport. Spindle motors can be a problem, but they never stop working altogether.

I would be checking the tray mechanics, a jam caused by something fouling the gears may cause a fail. Tap the front of the draw as you press eject to see if you can encourage it to work.
Sometimes, small nylon drive pinions can split, the excessive gap in the gears caused by the split causing a bind. Check also for blown pico fuses in the servo drive stage. This will cause no drive to the load motor.
If you cannot pin down the source of the problem, the player IS welll worth repair. These machines sound great and would have cost you a few bucks to begin with. If you need help locating an expert NAD authorised repair guy I can help.

Happy to discuss any of this further with you. As previously direct your comment to me by name. Cheers

regards

remove the cover, remove the spindle cover of cd player inside, thier you can see a little glas object
clean it with coton sticks and liquid that you use to clean the windows.
move over the lens gently once wet and once dry

Disk drawer will not open


A small motor turns a belt, which then drives the gear that operates the drawer. Over time this belt stretches or breaks, and the drawer doesn't open. Replacing the belt cures the problem.

I've looked at the couple of belt catalogs I have, and nothing for NAD is listed. You'll need to measure the old belt circumference and thickness. Almost all of these are square belts, usually in the range of 2.5 to 3.5 inches circumference. If you're measuring the old belt, take off 10 to 15% since it has stretched.

A local electronic service shop may have a suitable replacement. Otherwise there are many sources online (MCM Electronics is one I deal with frequently here in the US). In a pinch, you can even use a small rubber band until you find the right replacement.

Hope this has helped. Thanks for using Fixya!

Nad plays for a minute or so...


First thing to do is to check all your new caps and their polarities.

Nad C542 Troubleshooting


found same problem with mine, solution .. place clean paper over the optic, then a magnet, leave for a few seconds, the build up of static causes a magnetic field in the optic preventing it tracking, have cured a few other brands with this as well .. shows manufactures are putting inferior parts in to their players, hope this helps !!
