see if the player tries to read the disc. Load a disc and listen.
Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.

If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.

If still ur problem is not solved then i am sad to say you have to get it repaired and thats the only solution..

Good luck..

check the back of your marantz player, some old marantz products have a buttom at the back saying system or intermal, if it is on the system side, the remote will never works.

Changed my nad for a marantz but find the CDs jump .do they have to be absolutely clean to play well.on the nad no such problems.thanks Rob.


But this marantz is new or used? BTW, it seems a laser focus issue.
If it's an old gear, maybe there's dust on the laser lens, that you can gently remove with a cotton fioc and compressed air like that for PC care. If the problem remains, laser group has to be replaced, because exausted.

Hi,

If I may add to XX's post and with his indulgence...

It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track. Please refer to the image below.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi _ I have a Marantz CD player a littl;e over 6 years old. Performed perfectly until today, when it started inserting brief gaps in the music, approx 1-2 seconds; at the same time the track / time...


laser cleaning cd's very rarely work. the only thing they are good for is if there is a build-up of dust on the lens. Sounds like you most likely need to have the laser replaced.

My CD-5400 will only display standby indicator, no other lights or signs of it getting power. What does this mean?


This indicates a power supply problem on the circuit board, I have found many players with bulging capacitors at the top, replacing it often fixed it.

Marantz cd44-minimal sound when playing cd. Amplifier (rx163) works with tuner. I have tried cleaning head but with no sound improvement. Any suggestions?


I can't find any pictures or reference to a CD44 but if it's a CD player there would be no point in cleaning the laser lens if ity makes ANY sound at all. The bits don't get louder. Ones and zeros don't change. Look for an output control. Many players had fixed and variable outputs.

CD drive not spinning up, why?


The Laser Pickup Assembly is the problem, usually caused by a weak laser pickup or a defective pladder motor that spins the cd's, one possible solution is clean the laser pickup lens with a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol, if this fails the entire assembly must be replaced or buy new the cheaper option.

Cd does not read every time


I love Marantz! They make quality products that last and sound excellent! Most likely it a dirty lens. When a lens gets dirty, it can't read the cd as accurate. Unplug it, remove the cover, locate the cd lens take a q-tip lightly dipped in rubbing alcohol and rub it lightly on the lens (don't drip it too wet). This should help. Sometimes they also have a weak laser which can cause the same problems, but try the cleaning first.
