Question about Marantz DR-4050 2-Disc CD Recorder
I played a CD in the left hand deck, hit "pause", went on with the evening and the unit remained on overnight. This morning there was just a hissing, static noise in the speakers. I turned the unit off, let it cool down, but now the left hand deck does not seem to function. It does not play at all, and when I put a correct blank CD-R in it and try to record from the right hand deck, the only message I get is "insert disc." So it does not seem to recognize either a disc to be played or recorded. This has been a great unit for us. Can it be repaired? Is there a comparable unit available if not? Thanks. Ben
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

'No audio' comes up when you use the wrong type of cdr in the drive. You need a 'consumer audio' or 'music' specific CDR and not a generic computer cdr to use in these units.

The optics are most likely defective. Yes you will need to replace the optics assembly. I don't have a location for parts outside of the US, but you should be able to locate a parts distributor for Marantz in Europe.

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.

Sony Music CD-R's available at Target (purple packaging not red - must be music not data). I had been using the TDK's from Costco until I started having issues similar to yours. Sony's work perfect - no issues ever.
