Question about Marantz CC-4300 5-Disc CD Changer
Hi, hope I can get some help!
Cd player bought few years ago but little used,
1st prob - On start up the motor sounds noisy like it is struggling to get going,or obstructed? this was a problem from the start even after taking it in for repair, nothing has changed!
2nd prob - when playing a disc in the cd deck/drive it plays for a couple of minutes then stops and the display just shows the number of tracks, I have tried several cds and it does the same on all of them.
3rd and hopefully lastly! - the cd-r deck/drive is playing ok but then sometimes doesn't read or play cds, even if new, have tried several discs and this happens often too!
I am reluctant to part or believe it is on its way out as the machine has hardly been used and cost me a fortune when I bought it!
Can anyone recommend any repairers in North London area?

these models use the 12.1 philips laser mechanism and it is a very common problem for failing to read discs.
various technics / marantz / philips / cyrus cd players etc also use it and are plagued with the same fault.
it's a 90% chance the laser is dead!
philips realised the unreliability of this laser and uprated it to the identical looking VAM-12.
do not dismiss the spindle motor as these also fail quite alot on this mechanism.
hope this helps.
