Re: cd does not read every time
I love Marantz! They make quality products that last and sound excellent! Most likely it a dirty lens. When a lens gets dirty, it can't read the cd as accurate. Unplug it, remove the cover, locate the cd lens take a q-tip lightly dipped in rubbing alcohol and rub it lightly on the lens (don't drip it too wet). This should help. Sometimes they also have a weak laser which can cause the same problems, but try the cleaning first.

i found my dads Marantz CD-48 on the attic and had the same problem. Some CD`s the player was able to play instantly others not, getting the Error Message after trying to read the disc. My problem was solved after i opened it up and cleaned the linse of the player with a cotton swab.
If I may add to XX's post and with his indulgence...
It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track. Please refer to the image below.
Hi Wendy CD-Rs and CD-RWs have a component that ordinary music CDs do not have -- an ...This additional track space includes the power memory area (PMA) and the ... which tells the CD player what part of the disc it is reading at any particular time. ...uncorrected error on a music CD only means a bit of fuzz or a skipping noise. GOOD LUCK !
Which recordable disks are you asking about? "Erase" will only work on CD-RW and does nothing on CD-R.
Once you've recorded onto CD-R all you can do is add additional material to it until the disk is finalised to allow it to be played on virtually all CD players. The same goes with CD-RW, but with those you have the option to erase the entire disk and start again from scratch. You can also delete individual tracks from a CD-RW but the space does not become available for additional recordings until the disk is totally erased.
Perhaps you'll find the .pdf manual to be of use:-
HI.This will occur when the optical assembly becomes unstable. this ((Whole One Piece)), assembly incorporates the spin/load motor, optics housing /arm, tracking device and tracking rail. This is connected to the loading dock assembly. This 'NO Disc' or CD NOT PLAYABLE, code is the result of a failed or burned out lens, or misaligned loading mechanism. It is possible that you have a dirty lens cap. you can try using a cleaning disk in this case to confirm actual lens failure. if the cleaning doesn't restore normal reading capabilities, this will confirm my diagnosis.
You will need to have the optical assembly replaced in this case. once replaced, your unit will be able to read and track once more
these models use the 12.1 philips laser mechanism and it is a very common problem for failing to read discs.
various technics / marantz / philips / cyrus cd players etc also use it and are plagued with the same fault.
it's a 90% chance the laser is dead!
philips realised the unreliability of this laser and uprated it to the identical looking VAM-12.
do not dismiss the spindle motor as these also fail quite alot on this mechanism.
