Marantz cd63 mk 2 ki signature cd player will not play cds

The disc tray operates as normal. But when I load cds (prerecorded or home made) the led continues to flash with the message 'disc'. Normally it would display track number and length. I have tried cleaning the lens but this has made no difference. Is it likely to be a failed laser?

If your CD player has been working for many hours and cleaning the lens didn't help, then the next thing to do is changing the spindle motor (the one that spins the disc), since the brushes and the commutator get dirty/oxydized with many hours of performance.

The motor can also be cleaned, but it's kinda complicated and delicate to do it, so you might want to change it instead.

The same holds for the slide motor (the motor that changes the position of the laser pickup).

To clean the motor you need to desolder/remove it and open it up (you need to bend out the clamped parts on the motor housing to release the cover - also, mark the position of the cover so you can put it back in place in the same position as it was prior to opening it - some motors have an indentation so that the cover fits in place in only one position).

Then you need to remove the cover (this is a delicate procedure as you can easily damage the brushes).

You can clean the brushes and the commutator using a long pointed scalpel - gently scrub away the brownish/black residues on both the brushes and the commutator.

Now you need to put the motor back together, taking care not to damage the brushes when you put the cover back in place (kinda tricky but it can be done).

After closing it, see if it runs smoothly, you may want to try and run it on some 3 volts - it must run quite silently, with no more than a gentle humming sound.

If it runs ok, you should use a tiny flat screwdriver and a small hammer to bend the housing edge back onto the cover to fix it in place (basically, you need to rehammer back in the clamps that held the cover in place, this is also a bit tricky and delicate thing to do).

Now reinstall/resolder the motor back in place (motors on some brands/models can be worked without removing them).

Well, i've just told you how i repaired quite some CD drives which were virtually dead, i'm actually still using a yamaha which is more than 15 years old (i myself have been using it for at least 10 years now), i got it as a scrap piece, it returned to life after the above described procedure and it actually works perfectly up to date.

Anyway, i guess the easy way is to simply replace the motors (they need to have the same axis dimensions and mount holes as the original ones, also they need to run on the same voltage - things to keep in mind when you are looking for new motors).

Hope you can get it working...

good luck

this player uses a philips mechanism, spindle motor failure is very common on these mechanisms, yours may be on its way out. take the lid off and insert a cd and if you can hear the laser trying to read the cd without it spinning, it's definately the spindle motor.

Hi - the CD tray cannot open. It is empty - no CDs in there. I hear a buzz, but an "error" message comes on. I tried pushing on the tray while turning on; I unplgged the CD player, I put it on...


The loading tray belt has more than likely stretched or snapped.
The buzzing you hear will be the motor spinning freely.
The 'ERROR' message will show up because the tray isn't opening
and activating the 'tray open' switch, therefore the 'tray closed' switch
is permanently activated after the 'open/close button is pressed.

Marantz cdr420 recorded media stored on harddrive.played back all fine unplugged now it says no valid files when i try to burn the disc but the drive reads full.


If you are attempting to burn mp3 files as an audio CD, then that's the problem. You cannot burn audio CDs from MP3 files. You have to burn MP3 files as a data CD and not as an audio CD. See excerpt taken from page 33 in the CDR420 user guide. "Prepares CDs that can be played on standard CD players. Compact Disc Digital Audio (CDDA) uses uncompressed PCM, .wav files. The CDR420 does not convert MP3 files to PCM so MP3 files are ignored if you choose AUDIO as the CD TYPE"

Doesn't read the cd. says


If any cd player does not play, three things, it either the wrong format, dirty cd or faulty cd player. If your cd player play others cd, it mean others are the wrong format. for example older cd player is not compatible to play some of the cd formatted from the computer. if the cd player does not play anything that mean the cd player is faulty.

CAN,T DETECT CD IN BURNER TRAY


laser failure on the recording side is very common on marantz and philips cd recorders.
they're well known for it.
so it's most definately the laser in your case.

hope this helps.
