Question about Marantz ZS5300 6-Channel Amplifier

1 Answer

I have a 6 CD Changer but dont know how to use it?

I bought a 98 corvette and it came with a 6 cd changer thats located in the back on the car.

Well inside the car in front aka my radio has an AM/FM radio and AUX.
But it only has TAPE AUX it doesnt have a CD AUX button anywhere?

The guy that sold it to me said you need to use it through the radio
station like pick up a station and the cd changer will work and such?

So how exactly does this work and what station.

I would really like if someone could fully explain this to me.

This is an older way that makers of CD changers used to get CDs into cars that didn't have them.  This is what they tried to get people to by them.  I was never a fan of this system as the sound quality was never better than listening to FM radio.  There is a unit in the car, usually under the dash behind the glove box, that the CD changer is plugged into.  This unit has the FM antenna from the car plugged into it, and then a cable that is the same as that coming from the antenna going from the unit under the dash plugged into the FM antenna jack of the radio in the dash.  All this unit does is take the digital, high quality sound from the CDs, transmit it on an FM frequency (usually low on the FM band 80s, 90s or low 100s) and then you tune the radio into that FM frequency to get the sound form the CDs.  Problem is, the sound quality was only as good as FM radio.  A pretty poor way of getting CDs into cars.  But they sold millions of these things.  If it isn't working, the wiring may have come loose, the fuse to the unit under the dash might be blown, or something is disconnected.  if you go all through the FM dial, 0.1 at a time and don't hear it, it is time to get under the dash near the glove box and poke around.  Good luck.  If it were me, I would take all this gear out and put a new CD/MP3 player where the factory radio currently sits.

Have you opened the case?

Inside the actual cd drive unit there should be a couple of small rubberband like belts. You can try replacing them.

It may help.

If that doesn't work ,it may be time for a replacement.

I have a tendancy to hang on to old audio equipment long after it should have been replaced. It's just hard to let them go!

Good luck with it!

Have a 1990 era Kenwooed KA -127 that has always worked perfectly, however I just changed out CD players (Sony 5 disc changer that died w/ new CD P-CX355 300 disc changer, also removed taped deck ,...


I would first look for poor solder connections. It is possible that with the moving of the unit, a marginal connection finally broke. This is not unusual for a unit that is 20 years old. Check with a local repair shop for the labor costs, but this unit is definately worth a $100-$150 investment. If you;d like, post your location here and we'll try to provide you with some referrals.

My Cambridge azur 540C compact disc player won't read CDs.


Hi...

After about 100 CD-DVD units, I've found that most problems are from debris/film on the laser lens.
If taking the cover off the unit doesnt scare you, unplug it and blow out the CD assembly with a can of compressed CO2
and VERY lightly clean the laser lens with 91% or better alcohol on a cotton swab.
If that doesnt work , contact Cambridge Audio for a repair service.

Cd is struck in the dvd player. how to take it out


Find someone not afraid of screwdrivers. UNPLUG the unit from everything and remove the cabinet screws ( most likely a few on the sides and 2 or 3 in back. Put the screws in a ziplock or something so's your dont loose them. Remove said CD and put screws back.

CD Lense product details


Hi.

The lenses were not supplied as a spare part.
They regularly dropped out.

You need a new laser or a scrap deck, as I have re fitted the lenses in the past, you will need to have the RF aligned by a technician.
