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

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 C521 CD Player It will not play my CDs. The CD drawer closes normally with CD in place but after a pause, the drawer opens again. There is no 'no disk' warning. The 'no disk' warning does appear...


The tray belt raises the laser to proper focal length at the end of closing the drawer. This demands more grip from the belt. If the belt is sloppy, it will slip at this point, even though the drawer is shut. Took two years of repeatedly cleaning lasers to notice this.

NAD 5100 monitor wont eject


Hi ntravers9

You could fix this yourself, in saying this of course, you will need to also source a new belt for the player ( I can help you there too) That is probably what is preventing the Cd tray from opening. If you where to remove the lid, and give the transport a little assistance in the direction that things initially start moving, then you can be sure that the mechanism is not damaged in any way, and that a lazy belt is the source of you problem.

Do this if you are into fixing it yourself, to see for sure what is happening and we can go from there.
