Soundspace 8 - Disc eject / play problem

Greetings; I have been a proud and satisfied owner of the Soundspace 8 for a long time now, but I have developed a problem with the CD mechanism. There is a disc in the player and I cannot eject it with the on-board button or the remote. The unit will not play any disc either. Radio works fine, as do other inputs (e.g. Aux), so it is not an audio problem - appears to be a electro/mechanical issue of some sort. I have tried a cold power restart (unplug unit from wall) to see if it would run through its POST routine, but that did not change the behavior. When I choose the disc buttons (1,2,3. etc.), the green light is on in the "one" position, but pressing 2, 3, etc. changes the "1" position's light to orange instead of changing discs to position 2, 3, etc. When I press play, the status display changes to a "play" arrow and when I press the stop/eject button, the play arrow disappears (which tells me the control panel buttons are at least mechanically functional. However, I hear no play or spin-up of the disc and when pressing eject the blue dust cover light does not illuminate and there is no sound from the mechanism (it doesn't even try to eject the disc, it is just unresponsive). The dust door does not respond to the eject command either. Any help or direction appreciated. Thanks and best regards; _____________________________________________________________ KevFrey . . . . . .. . . . . .

    Hiya - I don't think it is a mechanical problem (no sound or change happens when pressing eject).

    Thanks for your help;

    This player has just quit working. Fuse blows and we replace and it blows again. No power. Can we send back for repair?

Hi Kev Frey, Have you checked the mechanism for a broken or loose belting or possibly a broken gear teething. With Regards, Edmund

Would a nakamichi soundspace 8 subwoofer work on a soundspace 9. I think the power is the same. Thanks Hugo

Nop, don't do that, the subwoofer power in the Nakamichi Soundspace 8 is 20 Watts and the subwoofer for Nakamichi Soundspace 9 is 70 Watts. If you put the 20 Watts Subwoofer on a 70 Watts input the subwoofer will receive severe damage.

No volume control

HI Phil...

The AUX input will not work with a turntable.
The turntable needs a pre-amp before you connect into the Soundspace.

Try for a pre-amp
