Question about Nakamichi CD-500 CD Player

1 Answer

Noise, gurgling and stopping CDnwhile driving

Hi, When driving my car, the CD sound of my new Nakamichi CD-500 player (fantastic sound by the way!) starts making gurling kind of noises (little like skipping/grinding), then a mechanical peeping (of something not turning) and then the CD stops and the E Disk message appears. When checking while not driving, this problem does not appear. The radio is working fine.

Have had this Nakamichi CD player since 1991. Recently there's a high-pitched hum with no music playing. The changer works fine-just no music.

Model number? If it uses analog audio cables you might have a noise leak from improper shielding. Reseat the cables or try new ones.

I'd also consider if you're using dimmer-controlled lighting in the room. They generate a lot of electronic noise. I never solved my problem with them even with a new dimmer so I just don't use them while listening.

Nakamichi CD player ejects discs

I think either your disk player, or your CD is dirty.
You should probalyly try getting a Q-tip slightly dampened in rubbing alcohol .
and clean the inside of your player.

Or you should try a different disk

Av500 need a compatible cd player

You don't need a Nakamichi CD player. Any CD player will work. Just look at the manufacturing date, you don't want one made before 2000 or so, they got a lot better about that time. The Sonys are generally good and easy to find.

If you are using the speaker out wiring (not RCA) then disconnect all speaker wires. connect only one speaker or use a known good test speaker. Try each of the 4 speaker outputs. If none still do not work, then it sounds like a blown output chip which will need to be replaced.

CD Error

return it?

my first CD-500 had problems too. i just returned it and got a new one and the new one works perfectly.

it seems these stereos are hit-or-miss. i believe they are made in Malaysia now, not Japan, and that Nakamichi is not really 'Nakamichi' any more.

but i still love my CD-500.
