Question about Audio Players & Recorders

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.

laser cleaning cd's very rarely work. the only thing they are good for is if there is a build-up of dust on the lens. Sounds like you most likely need to have the laser replaced.

If the system is less than 3 years you still qualify for manufacture warranty, usually it is accumulated dust, you can open the system's case and clean with a dust cleaner can, you can buy at staples, best buy, radioshack, and any major store.

If dust is not the problem than is an electronic problem, there is one electronic component that is in charge of closing the flap at xx speed. If that one is burnt out you can replace it, I recommend you have an electrician look at the circuit. or Contact the Marantz for warranty at: http://us.marantz.com/us/Support/Pages/ServiceCenter.aspx

DR6000 display "open"


you may need to replace the whole mechanism as i've had quite a few philips and marantz cd recorders with the same mechanism with exactly the same problem. when you press open/close it will display open or close with no sign of life from the player. this turned out to be a faulty laser unit and the PCB which is underneath the mechanism seems to go the same way which i found out later when i replaced the laser unit. the recorder worked for around 5 minutes then the laser started moving erratically but then would work again for 5 minutes after switching it off & on again. i cured the fault by replacing the PCB aswell. hope this helps?

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.

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.
