No worries mate... firstly, remeber that mains voltages can kill and you should always disconnect the unit from the power before taking the covers of and work safe.
What we plan to do is to

  1. Clean dried grease from the worm drive gear that move the laser optics back and forth.
  2. Clean the laser lens
  3. lube the spindle motor bearings
You will need

cotton buds
methylated spirits
light oil
fine sewing needle

Using a cotton bud moistened with metho, clean the the old dried grease of the worm drive gear. Removing the laser transport from the unit is often the best way to do this. Be sure to not touch any of the connections to the laser itself if you unplug it from the main board. They are very electrostatic sensitive, and can be damaged by the static charge on your person. Be meticulous to clean it well. I use light oil(sewing machine) or if you have it, some graphite grease to then relube it. Apply a drop of oil to the top bearing of the spindle motor (use a fine needle with the oil in the eye to get under the platter to do this. Clean the laser lens with a moistened cotton bud and then polish with a dry one to be sure there is no residue.

Reassemble the unit and see how it goes. If you have any more dramas, a replacement laser assembly can be got and basically plugged into these units with no extra setup. I reccomend using a marantz original if you can . It is described as a cdm12.1 transport. Let me know how you go.

Hi dr dray
Your player has a CDM12.1 laser transport fitted to it. They suffer a couple of problems that can be fixed that stop em from working so well. If you are handy with a screwdriver, then I can talk you through it.
