1995 Marantz CD-17

I have a 1995 Marantz CD-17. It is an awesome piece of equipment, the only problem being that it will not navigate CD-Rs very well. It will not perform direct track access or play in random mode. Is there any way to upgrade this unit for less than the replacement cost. I think the cost in 1995 was $1200. I do not want to perform this upgrade myself unless it is a "plug and play" type of upgrade. I would rather use the unit as-is than risk destroying it with a soldering iron. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jonathan

    Helpful idea. It is a waste to trow the CD17 away. It's a good and strong player, accept the laser unit!

Swop the older philips mechanism ( cdm12.1?) that can't handle cdr/w's for the newest compatible equivalent (VAM1201) that plays anything Should be a straight drop-in swop and cost about $40 for the laser unit if you do it yourself. You'll also get a new disc spindlemotor in the assembly. Confirm part numbers first.

We have Marantz PMD 325 CD players. Usually TOC REading comes up when you put a CD into the player. However sometimes we now get the following message "PMA Reading", What does this mean.


Hi Wendy CD-Rs and CD-RWs have a component that ordinary music CDs do not have -- an ...This additional track space includes the power memory area (PMA) and the ... which tells the CD player what part of the disc it is reading at any particular time. ...uncorrected error on a music CD only means a bit of fuzz or a skipping noise. GOOD LUCK !

Loading judder, is there a tray mechanisim out there ?


You may just need a belt- it depends on what you can see what is happening. MCM Electronics has small square belts that could resolve the issue. There is a Marantz/Denon service parts place but you need to have a service manual to be able to order the part you want. It is probably a simple belt replacement.

I am looking for a manual fo a marantz cd63 cd player and a replacement remote for the said item I can be emailed at aitkenmartin23@yahoo.co.uk thanks


Model RC63CD is available for $58

http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=gmi&smodel=CD63SE&brand_pn=MARANTZ_CD63SE&mode=large&uuid=A12997911098241

or you could lurk around eBay and search for "CD63 remote" or "RC63CD remote" and maybe one will become available cheaper.

Can't help on the manual but from the pix I've seen its a vanilla CD player with all possible outputs - analog, coaxial digital and optical digital. Nothing unique or complex about it that would need explanation.

Try any CD manual and it would probably make you fluent in Marantz CD83-ese.

The player wont record. All other functions fine including playback and finalising.


You mean it records silence? if it finalises then it does recognise and burn to the disc- so the laser/drive seems to be ok..

If silence, bear in mind there are analogue, optical and coax digital inputs to chose from for record source

Don't forget too these units need the special CD-R audio discs not CD-Rs to record to.

CD-17 will not recognize any disc on loading


The disc will not spin unless it is actually detected by the optics assembly. Try claning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails to resolve the problem, the optics have failed and should be replaced.

Hey


The functions are the same as the cdr870/880 philips unit - google for that and you should be able to work it out from that manual.

CD-R does not read disks anymore


I recently resolved CD-R recognition problems with the KLH CDR2000. It's absolutely imperative that you utilize CD-Rs bearing the logo "COMPACT DISC DIGITAL AUDIO RECORDABLE". These specific CD-Rs are designed for digital music recording with the KLH CDR2000 and other simular products. I have a Marantz CD20 that has the same CD-R requirement. I purchased a Memorex 50-pack from Best Buy for approximately $20.00 plus tax. The recordings with the Memorex CD-Rs are immpressive for the KLH CDR2000 given the obvious flaws in design. Again, when searching for compatible disc for the KLH CDR2000 look for the words "DIGITAL AUDIO" within the "COMPACT DISC RECORDABLE" logo.
