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

SOURCE: Nad C542 Troubleshooting

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.

SOURCE: 3 yr Old CD Player not recognizing discs

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.

Why won't my CD Player won't play CD's?


the laser that reads the cd is probably dirty - if you have a can of compressed air - insert the nozzle into the cd player and blast away any dust and debris - if this doesn't help - there are cd cleaning discs available at any major retailer - just insert the cd and it cleans the laser - worst case scenario - buy a new cd player - the prices have really come down - I replaced mine with the trim kit and wire harness for $100 - only took about 1 hour - but you do need to buy the Ford stereo removal tools (available also at any good stereo store)

I cannot find power input for Brookstone AcoustiClear3cd player


Hi, I have exactly the same dilema. I am wondering if we are supposed to put in the Aux In. Because I am looking like a complete idiot for buying this thing without the power cord. Now for not finding how to plug it in... Please let me know if you found out.

BOSe Wave Radio - Disk "not readable"


I had the same problem with the disk unreadable error and took my unit to a authorized repair dealer about 100 miles from where I live to have it fixed. It ended up costing me about $300 to have the CD unit totally replaced which is almost as much as I paid for the unit in the first place. I am like a lot of you that used the CD very little although the unit was about 3 years old. I think Bose has a problem and would like us to think it is very rare. I bought a Lifestyle surround system about 14 years ago that has a CD and have never had a problem with it so needless to say I am very disappointed in the Wave II Radio/CD system. I am fairly certain the problem will occur again, but only time will tell.
