Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I recently moved my system, only across the room, but since then the LCD display on the CD player has refused to 'light up'. the player plays ok but no display so maybe i should be thankful. any quick fix ideas? i cant believe its just died cos of the feng shui... cheers
Hey, well, typical problem i nad cd players, and also receivers by the way. The proble are tha nad use standard glow lamps. And as we know, the blow!! And often when you move around with the cd.

I had the same problem, and miguelovitch's solution and site were very helpful. I was able to replace the burned out bulbs with two white LEDs. The trick was determining that the power supplied to the bulbs is 15 volts DC. Once I figured that out, I picked up Radio Shack part 276-0017, 2 5mm high brightness white LEDs, and some 560 ohm resistors to drop the voltage to the LEDs. (The online LED circuit calculator I used sugested 470 ohms, but I went one higher for safety.)
The results are quite satisfying, though I should not have pointed the LEDs directly at the display becuase they do make a bright spot.
Now if I can only figure out how to get my home theater receiver's remote to control the CD player!

NAD 502 playback noise when red wire on ribbon connector is touched. new ribbon wire available? Or other vintage NAD player model with equivalent or better performance reviews?
