Question about Marantz Audio Players & Recorders
When I plug my Ipod touch or just normal ipod with the circle dial into my marantz in the front port on the ipod mode, all it says is "Please wait..." with no reponce. Anything I'm doing wrong and how do I go about getting the amp to read the ipod?
Does the cable work OK on other equipment?
Do you have a manual for the Marantz ?...If not , try their website

If you try and unplug it at least 12 to 24 hours and it does the same thing, then its time to take it in to the shop.

Sounds like you have an issue with your electrical circuit. Your receiver could be receiving spikes of current from the electrical wiring in your house.
Review your current electrical situation. Keep in mind that certain outlets are on the same circuit and that running multiple, high-wattage devices on the same circuit can cause issues with some of those devices. Especially when it comes to turning devices on and off.
Many devices take a sudden, rapid charge to power their circuitry the moment you turn the device on. Home audio and HVAC systems are particularly notorious for doing this. Other devices on the same circuit can sometimes suffer influxes of power flow and may either turn off or go into standby mode to protect themselves from the resulting surges.
I've lost audio systems that way... I lived in an apartment building that has wiring most likely dating back into the 40's. I once turned on a space heater on it's max 1500 watt setting and blew my Logitech Z-680 speakers. (The "BOOM" sound that emitted from my subwoofer was AMAZING. I had just blown an amp circuit. It literally exploded inside of the subwoofer. Took pics and everything.)
If you have the means to do so... You might consider re-wiring your electrical circuit. Take into consideration where you're going to run certain devices and wire the system accordingly.
In the meantime, you would want to be sure to buy a HIGH-QUALITY surge protector for the audio system. Spend a few bucks and get a GOOD one with a good warranty on it. Don't use those cheapy ones that we only really use to split the outlet. NOTHING under 1,000 joules.
My receiver sometimes locks itself like that, though. If we have a power outage or the unit is unplugged suddenly, it will keep itself in standby mode until you unplug it, press the power button a few times to discharge any current left in the capacitors and plug it back in normally. Only then will it turn on again.
Let me know what you come up with.

Your unit's micro IC, is in need of a reset.Un-plug the unit and locate the semi large yellow capactor on the main board. (r-h side facing front) Now flip the unit over and look thru the vent holes in that same area and locate the two solder pins. Short them out with a thin metal object, like a straightened out paper clip or wire, and turn it over (just discharge the cap and remove your wire) this will default all settings and restore normal operation.

I suppose pcm light means that the pcm mode is turned on (pcm meaning pulse code modulation), in other words, the unit was switched to digital signal, so if the digital rca or optical TV input on your reciever is not connected to anything, then you're not getting any signal into the reciever in digital mode. You probably just need to switch the unit back to analog mode (see if there is a button that says something like digital/analog, pcm/analog, optical/coax or similar, try pressing it, see if there is any change).
I might just be totally wrong on this, however, probably the best way to learn what happened is to read the user manual if you do have it (see what the pcm light signals for and check any chapters inside the manual related to that topic).
