Re: Hey

The functions are the same as the cdr870/880 philips unit - google for that and you should be able to work it out from that manual.

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.

My Marantz DR17 CD recorder works fine with TDK CD-RXG 74 min discs, but not with the modern 80 min version. The recorder freezes when updating the TOCs. Are there any currently available audio CD-Rs that...

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.

Laser is malfunctioning on my Marantz CD Recordable DR6000

the laser in your DR-6000 is exactly the same as what's in the philips cdr-775 and cd-r-770.
a brand new laser for these are very hard to get hold of and are very expensive. personally i would look out for the above philips models on ebay for less money then take the whole mechanism out and unscrew the servo board and then fit the marantz servo board in place of it and fit it back into your recorder.
i have done this on numerous occasions with no problems.

hope this helps.

CDR is not working

have a look on ebay for a cheap working donor recorder as spares are very expensive and very hard to get hold of.
i'm guessing your recorder either doesn't read discs, or it won't eject? which is very common and means either the servo board is faulty or the laser.

The following recorders i know off hand for a donor mechanism are:


if it proves to be just a faulty laser, all 3 of the above have the same laser unit.
if it proves to be a faulty servo board, all 3 have the same servo boards except if you fit one out of a philips model it will show 'PHILIPS CD RECORDER' on the display at power up but will still work nontheless.
obviously if a marantz is found it will show 'MARANTZ CD RECORDER' as normal.

hope this helps.

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.

CD door not opening.

Usually failure to open means a faulty motor - when you press eject ca you hear the motor spinning or is it quiet? If in the UK contact me via ebay - fluffcat1 - and I can help further.
