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

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.

2a8af3a.jpg
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
robotek

My CD tray closes before I insert disk


check the micro switches on the cd mechanism. these can go wrong sometimes. it's obviously not sending a message to the micro chip that the tray is open therefor it will close again automatically.

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.

My NAD C251i CD player isn't reading disks - platform stops short


To fix it, you need to replace the spindle motor top bearing. The bearing is worn and the player mistracks as the armature moves about under the changing drive conditions. Makes the player mistrack and skip. Because the disc is spinning fast.

Replacing the bearing should resolves the problem.

Hope this helps and have a great day!

My DCD3000 door closes automatically and won't read discs right


Hi....

If the transport inside is like the NAD players, it's the drawer belt that's the problem.
Belts are cheap but someone technical needs to change it.

I've dealt with this type issue quite a bit.
Believe it or not the drawer belt needs to be changed.

Cd player not working


there may be a small obstruction inside or underneath the cd tray preventing it from closing all the way.[a piece of something may have broken inside] this may sound stupid, but you can try shaking the unit and listening for something loose or rattelling, and try to have it fall out while the cd tray is open. [i recently had this problem] check also for the cd tray to align properly when closing into it's opening.
hope this helps.

Won´t read any Disc


I have the same problem since the early beginning after purchase. I'm very upset with NAD for the zero-value technical service in Italy. After 2 months they gave me back my C541 with new defects (the tray now doesn't work properly). They have tried - they said - different optics without fixing the problem. Does anybody know if a compatible optic / tray exists?
Thank you
