Troubleshooting NEC CD-530

Hi cmv9... I don't understand your comment "... it does not seem to have come through." I have a single disc CD player from NEC. The model number is CD-530. Ten seconds or so after I power on an "E" shows in the display window. I can load a CD but it does not play. It does not even spin. I know this because I have taken off the cover and seen the lack of movement. Can you help?

Thanks.
John

This is an issue that has plagued the 541I and 542 models - some units worked fine and some units had similar issues as the ones you mentioned. It was suppsoedly fixed beginning with Serial Number G56C54224800 but I know someone who has a later serial number and had the same issue. It could be the laser or the transport or both. Simply put NAD has a quality control issue. There products still produce great sound but the great sound at a reasonable price is seemingly coming at great cost - the lack of consistent quality.

SOURCE: The DVD player does not recognize disks that it used to play before.

It sounds like the DVD region (a setting in both your OS and your DVD hardware) may have been changed. DVD regions are the agreed upon method (by entertainment companies, hardware manufacturers and governments) to limit cross-border sharing of media. Most valid (read: non-pirated) DVDs have a region code. Your DVD drive will only play DVDs with a region code that matches the DVD region code set on the DVD drive.

You didn't mention your OS but if you are running Windows XP then go to Start->Control Panel->System->System->Hardward->Device Manager and find your DVD player. Right-click the DVD player and select Properties from the menu and you should see a properties dialog-box with a DVD region tab. This is where you can change the DVD region that your player will recognize. Be careful, don't play around here, most DVD players have an embedded limit on the number of times (4-or-so) the DVD region can be changed.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Not Recognising a CD

I got a second hand 541 a few weeks ago. After many hours of listening pleasure an no problems at all, the machine stopped spinning CD's, both copied ones and original ones.

The sollution for my problem was simple after some figuring out.

Open the CD tray.
Power off the unit with the tray open.
Open it up.
In the CD frame in the back there are 2 srews that hold the CD engine unit in place. I untidied these screws just a little bit.
I also untidied the screws that hold the cd clamp cover on the top a little.

After this it loads all my CD's fine again.

Laser might not be faulty but just a dirty lens/ rail assembly.
If thou darest open the thing, clean the lens ( GENTLY) with a swab of glass lens cleaner. Clean the chrome runners for the optics assby with a swab lcaed with WD40 or silicone.

SOURCE: Bose Wave Radio w/single CD player on top

My Bose Wave Radio/CD developed this problem about a year ago. I don't use the CD player much and kept the unit clean. The disc spins but, the system does not read it. Cleaning the lens with cotton did not help.

Read that Bose charges $75 to fix this problem.

SOURCE: Cd player keeps showing nd cannot play any type of Cd at all

Hi Tony,

Your GE 7-5295 keeps showing nd (no disc), this simply means that your lens has been damaged. Please replace the lens and you would enjoy listening to music once again in your kitchen.

Kind Regards

Hi, I have a NAD C541i cd player when i turn it on i get three blue line on the display, i open the draw and insert a CD disc but the blue lines stay on the display and the disc don't play. can you...


The blue lines you mention should flash when trying to find
the 'Table of Contents' of your CD, even if a CD isn't loaded.
If when a CD is loaded and these lines flash for a while without
any CD info e.g track no. / disc length then it's more likely that a problem has occurred with the laser.
Various NAD CD players use the Sony KSS-213 Laser unit
and for some reason particularly with NAD CD players, they tend
to drift out of calibration over time so what i usually do when i come across this is very finely adjust the pot trim on the laser itself and testing a CD between adjustments.

Troubles con mi cd 400cd. I do not speak Englis Well but I understand a little bit. Please what can I do?...Displays "Table Error". CD's ... Displays "table Error". Cd's won't...


You will have to open the top of the changer. 2 screws on top, 2 screws on each side, and three across the back. then pull off the top. Chances are that you have a jammed disc. when you tried to play it, it probably sounded like gears grinding. you should see a jammed disc at the back left of the carousel. Gently work it out then try to play another disc. leave the top off and test a few before re assembling. Hope this helps. if you need further help, just post a comment and i will help you further.

CD player will cycle through all 5 discs and then show "No Disc"


HI. the main board is ok. this is the actions of a malfunctioning optical lens assembly. the lens is unable to read, due to the damage to its structure or, the laser has burned out.

The main board is programed to issue the (no disk) alert if the lens doesn't relay audio data. simply replacing the failed optical lens assembly will fix this issue.

Adcom gcd-600 won't play


If I understand your issue, you press play and the player does not recognize the disc, the optical pickup may be defective. I suggest you contact an Authorized Adcom Service Center. For further questions, contact Adcom directly.
