Question about Marantz CD5001 CD Player
Hi - I have a Marantz CD player a little 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 display goes blank. Then the music & the display pops back. Not skipping forward or back so far, just the silent gaps. I know the problem is in the player, not the discs, since the gaps occur at different points during multiple plays. I have an AudioSource CD laser cleaner CD, but I don't think the Marantz will read it. The unit displays 'TOC reading' and then having found none, does not spin the disc. I may have to take the unit in, but can anyone recommend a laser cleaning CD that the Marantz can handle? - thanks

these models use the 12.1 philips laser mechanism and it is a very common problem for failing to read discs.
various technics / marantz / philips / cyrus cd players etc also use it and are plagued with the same fault.
it's a 90% chance the laser is dead!
philips realised the unreliability of this laser and uprated it to the identical looking VAM-12.
do not dismiss the spindle motor as these also fail quite alot on this mechanism.
hope this helps.
