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.

Hi,

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.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi _ I have a Marantz CD player a littl;e over 6 years old. Performed perfectly until today, when it started inserting brief gaps in the music, approx 1-2 seconds; at the same time the track / time...


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.

We have Marantz PMD 325 CD players. Usually TOC REading comes up when you put a CD into the player. However sometimes we now get the following message "PMA Reading", What does this mean.


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 !

On my Marantz CDR-630, how do you erase unwanted tracks after recording and before finalizing. I see there's a "erase" button but it won't do anything. Fred, fred@katli.com Thanks!!


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:-

I hope that this has answered your question, all I ask in return is that you return the favour by rating my answer.

Nad 502 CD will not recognise and play CD every time


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

My one-year old Marantz CD5001 CD player


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.

hope this helps.
