ALC Automatic Level Control

In other words, an audio compressor which reduces the level when the level gets too much.

Look up "audio compression" with Google for a complete treatise how it works.

Hi I have a marantz pmd661 with a buzz on record when set to ext mic/line with no i/p regards

If you let the input "float" with no connection it very well may buzz. The input needs to be tied down with a driving source.

This implies that there is not enough current going to the device when running on battery (only back-light but no data) whereas running fine on AC means that the device board is most likely in a good operational condition.
I think maybe once a leaked worn battery which left forgotten inside battery compartment damaged the battery terminals or at least the wires connecting these terminals to the main board, i would recommend you to open and check on that.

MARANTZ PMD 101 PROBLEMS, COUNTER AND REWIND

Get the belts changed, and check a clutch inside the mech which drives the auto-stop mechanism.

It works in a way that it normally holds the auto-stop off if the spools are rotating, but when it wears, there is no srive through it to hold the auto-stop off, so the auto-stops stops, if you see what I mean.

Any good audio tech should be able to do this, if the machine otherwise works OK, it is worth doing because these are very nice and usually reliable machines.

For musical work though, the CP series are usually better, as they provide 3-heads and off-tape monitoring, with better quality and the facility to set tape bias to suit high-grade tapes.
