You may just need a belt- it depends on what you can see what is happening. MCM Electronics has small square belts that could resolve the issue. There is a Marantz/Denon service parts place but you need to have a service manual to be able to order the part you want. It is probably a simple belt replacement.

The Laser Pickup Assembly is the problem, usually caused by a weak laser pickup or a defective pladder motor that spins the cd's, one possible solution is clean the laser pickup lens with a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol, if this fails the entire assembly must be replaced or buy new the cheaper option.

Swop the older philips mechanism ( cdm12.1?) that can't handle cdr/w's for the newest compatible equivalent (VAM1201) that plays anything Should be a straight drop-in swop and cost about $40 for the laser unit if you do it yourself. You'll also get a new disc spindlemotor in the assembly. Confirm part numbers first.

The disc will not spin unless it is actually detected by the optics assembly. Try claning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails to resolve the problem, the optics have failed and should be replaced.

First swap wires on the input and see if same side has a problem. If not then input wires or jacks causing it. If wires swap doesnt do anything then switch speakers with wires. If that doesnt work try to clean speaker connectors but there is a big chance that amplifier need to be repaired

Check to make sure your speakers are in phase. This means that they are both wired the same way. Common problem, and can damage your amplifier if not changed. Positive and Negative must be the same on all speakers.

Unless you have extensive knowledge of electronics and the equipment necessary to troubleshoot the issue, I would look for a reputable repair center. The unit has components inside that eventually fail.
