Question about Audio & Video Receivers

3 Answers

I have a problem with my Marantz CD5400 that started a few weeks after the warranty ran out. Basically I can hear the laser or other onternal workings trying to read CD`s but it is rarely able to achieve this. Ocasionally it will display the number of tracks and total time of the CD but press play and the screen goes blank, then display "No Disc". Even rarer than this it will do the above and then start to play a few tracks from a CD, however y track 4 or 5, or if you try to select a specific track "No Disc" appears again. Any ideas? I`d love to get it working because the ound is superb.

It is probably the transport, the CD5400 uses the VAM1201 which should be pretty easy to find on the Internet and replace.

    Also could be a grounding or power problem with your wall outlet or power bar. Try with a different power bar and/or a different circuit in your house.

I have marantz 7'300 an the standby light is on but wont power on no screen no sound idk help please


Unplug it from ac for 10 minutes and then try it. If that does nothing you need to get it to warranty service. It has a 3 year warranty so should still be covered. No Video or audio output on MARANTZ nr1602

My marantz tt 155 turntable won't turn. is there a turntable lock? or is the only other reason a broken belt? thank you.


Could certainly be a broken belt. Lift record tray and look to see if belt has fallen off or has basically fell apart. Belts can be purchased at Marantz.com. If no belt could be a bad motor. Same website.

AVR SR6004 switches off while BD player is playing. What do I do?


Hi,
There are two circumstances that I know of that a properly installed unit such as your Marantz would shut down. So here is the Theory and Data I know of.
A Your receiver has a great deal of amplification power. If it is in a closed cabinet without excellent ventilation, it will shut down if used at high volumes because because over heating. Because of it's very high power, when played loudly, it generates excessive heat.
When watching certain movies the BD player may be over-driving the limits of the amplifier section of your receiver. Page 78 of your owner's manual addresses this. Here is a link to download the manual from Marantz.
http://us.marantz.com/us/Support/Pages/Manuals.aspx
B There is one other very important thing I should mention to you. When people use high powered equipment and initially turn up the sound. After a short time, the mind turns it down. What next happens is the reason professional musicians and sound engineers often have permanent hearing loss after a relatively short time.
What tends to happen is that the listener and often the engineer running the sound mixing board at a concert(after a certain period of time) believes the sound is not loud enough when it really IS loud enough. (this tricks the audience as well) and engineer turns it up. After turning it up, his mind (and the audiences') turns it down mentally and they again think and agree that it not loud enough and then again, the volume level is turned up. And up. And up. The only reason I'm not deaf is that I discovered this when I was building sound systems as a kid. I also studied about it. So please be careful when you play things loud. Permanent hearing loss starts to occur at the very high frequencies and rolls down from there over a period of time. Hearing loss can start to occur in just a few hours at 110 decibels. permenant hearing loss is exactly just that. Permenant! It just doesn't come back. If you use this information, you will enjoy hearing music for the rest of your life.
I hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

Marantz SR9200 shuts off intermittently while watching or listining.


Check all speaker connections. unplug everything.. start with just L and R speakers. Do a mic calibration..also check all your source inputs to the amp. start from the basics. Is the amp still under factory warranty? I used to install marantz...also make sure unit is well ventilated. IF you are using audio zones in your place..with in wall volume controls..make sure they are impedance matched. VOLUME may be set to high...overdriving the outputs..eventhough audio may not be loud. Set volume to -30...?

Marantz sr18ex clicks on and off while watching dvds.


I'm not familiar with Marantz receivers but sounds like it could be intentionally cutting out either because it's overheating or it's afraid it might blow your speakers. Two basic things to try:

1) Leave it off for a few hours
2) Turn the volume way down so you can just hear it - not sure if the cutout is intelligent enough to take this into account but worth trying...

Also, any chance you have it in a closet or cabinet without adequate ventilation? Does the area where it's sitting seem especially warm? If you don't have enough air movement then overheating is far more likely.

Good luck!

My marantz cd5400 keep pausing itself during playback


You need a new laser. Cleaning the lens could possibly help maybeee. But it most likely needs a new laser now. Good Luck.

Marantz CD63-SE fails to load/read/recognize disk - disk spins but "insert disk" is the only result


I think the laser needs re-aligning or the laser unit itself is faulty. If you can find a competant technician. Hope this helps.

This is the problem with computerized stereo's. The old analog stuff we could fix forever, but many of these digital problems, only the maker has the tools to repair. Feel fortunate that yours will even offer you support, even though expensive.
Good luck.
