    tried all sorts of blank cd's - cd-r and cd-rw's without success.

    as said copied cd's plays PERFECTLY in my other cd players but not in the marantz DR-700. previously the DR-700 also played perfectly.

    currently and as in the passed the software in use on my pc for burning cd's is NERO START SMART.



    thx

    tried/done all your above said recommendations - problem remains the same

  • darall Jun 22, 2009

    as said the same copied cd's are playing perfectly in all my other cd/dvd players - inclusive of all the cd players in our vehicles. it is only in the marantz DR-700 where it is a problem.



    thx

    the lens is clean,

    but if the lens is faulty why does the DR-700 still plays the cd's recorded in the passed as well as recorded cd's bought from cd outlets still perfectly ?



    thx

    maybe you should read the problem again from the beginning.



    as said before that FRESHLY purchased pre-rorded cd's, and cd's COPIED from my pc (NERO START SMART) in the PAST are still playing PERFECTLY in the DR-700 as well. it is only cd's that are copied NOW that give the hickup in the DR-700.



    you did not comment on the status of the lens AFTER this info was forwaded to you. in my opinion if it is the lens then all cd's should not play in the DR-700 ???



    thx

According to everything you posted, here's what I'd like to say.
Lasers just like any other things tend to wear out. So as laser gets older its wave lenght shortens. So ewery laser unit at the back side allways has 1 or 2 potentiometers (adjustable resistors) So just go deep into your unit to access laser. and very gently turn one resistor at a time by around 2 degrees clockwise. give it a try, if stil not good, turn the other resistor and try again. It will gradualy begin to read CDs

any questions, drop me a line, or you can get to me directly dissolu@gmail.com

Good Luck

Since The player works fine with Your previously burnt cd's and purchased cd's i think the problem lies with your burning software. Try Reinstalling the Nero Burning software or try other free alternatives like Express burn.

Hi there,

There are so many factors as below -

1. CD-R vs. CD-RW. 
You should be burning your audio CDs to CD-R media, not CD-RW media (CD re-writable). Some newer players will play CD-RW discs. But for the most part, the majority of audio CD players will only play CD-R discs.

2. Burn speed. 
Each brand of CD-R has a certified maximum burn speed, which is expressed as a multiple of the audio playback speed. So, a disc certified at 24x can be burnt at 24 times faster than the audio CD will be spinning when it is played. You must set the burn rate in your CD duplication software according to the disc’s specification, or the data will not be written reliably. This can result in skips, or CD-Rs that will play to a certain point and then just stop. Ideally you want to burn your CD lower than the certified speed, to take into account manufacturing defects in your burner or the disc.

3. Brand of CD-R 
If you have been burning CDs for a while, you probably have noticed that some brands of CD-Rs work well in some players, and some do not. CD-R discs are said to be “burned”. When you burn a CD-R disc, a focused laser beam darkens the chemical dye on your disc to mimic the bumps and flat spots that are generated on a replicated disc.

Good Luck!!
Thanks

    Ok... Burn a cd in low burn speed (24X or 32x).
    and check that cd with your player.

  • Mukesh Kumar Jun 22, 2009

    Is the all other DVD/CD are playing well?


  • Mukesh Kumar Jun 22, 2009

    Ok.. Clean the lens using a soft cloth.
    follow the below link -
    http://www.ehow.com/how_5048522_clean-cd...
    it helps you to know how to clean the lens.

    if further you have the same problem that means lens need to be replace of that cd player.

  • Mukesh Kumar Jun 23, 2009

    The prblem you will be having is that normal CD players (and some CD-ROM drives) will not read ReWritable CDs. get yourself a good brand of CD-R [TDK / Philips] and burn them to that instead. If you don't want to pay the HUGE prices that these are in the shops then get yourself to your local computer fair - they're usually very cheap.

I just bougth a marantz cdr 300 cd recorder,everything seems to be working fine, but I'm not able to listen what I just recordered on any other cd player.Marantz cd 72 mr 2020.Thanks


Hi,
It sounds like you haven't followed the last step to the burning procedure. All you need to do once you've completed burning your disc is to Finalize the disc. Read below why you need to finalize as well as the steps to follow in order to finalize the disc.
Hope this helps ;)
How to Finalize Finalizing is writing the TOC (table of contents) on a disc so a CD player can recognize the number of tracks, the total time for each track, and their location on the disc. A recorded disc must be finalized to playback on a standard CD player. Once finalized a CD-R disc can be played on CD players that support CD-R playback. CD-RW discs can only be played on CD players that support CD-RW playback. Consult your CD player owner's manual to confirm supported formats. Finalizing is necessary to: • be able to play a recorded CD-R or CD-RW disc on a CD player • prevent further recording on a disc • avoid erasing tracks on a CD-RW disc • record text information onto a disc you record Notes: • A finalized CD-R disc can never be recorded onto again. • A finalized CD-RW disc can be unfinalized for more recording. • The CDR300 can play back unfinalized CD-R or CD-RW discs. • SYNC REC+FINAL mode automatically finalizes.
Here are the steps in order to Finalize your disk
1 Push Stop. The display shows the number of tracks and their total playing time. 2 Push FINALIZE. FINALIZE is displayed for about 3 seconds.

Hi.I have CD Recorder Marantz DR6000.After reading and initalizing blank CD-R Audio next on display show OPC ERROR.It,s reading all audio CD,s,oryginal,and CD-R.When I wanna finalized old CD-R,recorded by...


DR-6000 only accepts CD-R audio or CD-R music discs, not the standard CD-R discs. the difference is that the audio and music discs have the OPC formatted differently and they cost a bit more because they include the royalties fee. Standard CD-R discs won't work in this recorder. The correct discs have compact disc "digital audio" logo on them.

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.

Is it just the analogue inputsthat do this? Soulnds like a faulty input board.
