    Yes, the problem showed up resaneally. I tryed to turn off the power and the machine went on for a short time. Whats next, I like the powergirl so much have connected her with a couple of B&W`s and they are going very good along...

    Is it a reading problem while using any CD`that are not in sale in the proper way?

I have had this problem twice now in ten years, each time took it to get repaired at a marantz dealer and they replaced the laser. First time was about $150, second time they didn't charge me. No problems otherwise - which for an integrated item like this, where so many things can go wrong, is pretty good.

I have '75 Marantz 1030 amplifier. Is it worth fixing? I bought it new and stored it away 10 years ago. Are there parts available for rebuilding it?

Yes you can still get parts for these. You will however need to know about rebuilding electronics. Be able to read schematics and have to tools necessary to perform testing circuits. I have rebuilt many Marantz vintage receivers as well as Pioneer, Sansui, McIntosh and so on. Keep the unit alive. Don't toss it. If you cant work on it yourself find someone who can and if you can. If you can afford the cost of repair donate it to someone who has a passion for rebuilding these and keeping them in circulation. These are very nice sounding units once you get them serviced and up and running.

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.

Hello, my Sharp Cd-sw200 no longer recognizes the cds that are in there and none of the 5 cd drawers will open. Everything else works fine. Unit is approx 3 years old and very gently used until 4 months...

Changers are the worse of the reliable units and Sharp is not among the best brands to get. The unit will need service by a Technician.
If none of the 5 drawers will not open how is it possible that the units works fine?

Remote not working on Marantz 63cd. Tried

check the back of your marantz player, some old marantz products have a buttom at the back saying system or intermal, if it is on the system side, the remote will never works.

Hi. I have a Kenwood stereo approx 10 years old with 3 stack cd player. The cd,s pick up, release and continue to go around doing this until I stop it but they dont play. The mechanical part seems to work...

It i probably the optic that has either got a lot of dust on it or it has worn out, you can try cleaning the optic with a cleaner such as Ambersol or take it to a repair center.
