Question about Nakamichi Car Audio & Video

4 Answers

I have a 1993 Lexus SC 400 with a Nakamichi sound system. The 12-disk CD player in the trunk has a problem. CDs won't play because they get stuck halfway between the CD carrier and the internal part of the player. I can see when one is stuck, and with a pencil eraser, I can (gradually, patiently) return it to the carrier, but no CD will feed all the way into the player without getting stuck.

    I always knew that replacing the CD player was one option. However, the name of your service includes the word "Fix". Can it not be fixed? Or is too expensive to fix? By the way, that CD player is very hard to find, used, and a new one is major bucks.

    It was mildly helpful in that it confirmed that I will have to try to dismantle and fix the CD changer myself or take it somewhere. I guess I was hoping for a a "Eureka" type answer, telling me exactly what was broken and how to repair it. That was unrealistic, so I accept your solution.

You cd player needs service / cleaning and little lurication on moving and sliding parts in it. Lens cleaning will effect on its cd reading performance. Please pay attention on loading belts, might be dusty or slippry. Hope this info will help you to fix it.

If you can open the casing of the cd carrier itself, please check if you can see misaligned gears and components. While the casing is removed, try to apply power to the carrier then insert a CD, you can see from there what the main cause is.
