Default Marantz cd-63 cd spinning anticlockwise?

Hi I'm new to this forum, I'm not sure that I'm in the right place as most of the threads that I,ve read are in a league way beyond me. I've always thought that my cd-63 11 KI sounded pretty good and had never considered modding it.

Anyway maybe someone can help with my problem. The player seemed to stop recognising discs, but looking inside I found that the disc starts to spin clockwise but then reverses and spins anticlockwise (does the same in the fault finding mode).Suspecting that the laser wasn't seeing the disc I've replaced it - but with no difference to the problem.

The laser bobs up and down 3 times with no disc (as it should)
It hisses in P01 when the disc is moved by hand
But spins backwards in P02

I'd be grateful for any suggestions -unfortunately the link to the manual seems to have expired.

Regards zoesdad

I had problems with these capacitors in the servo section of my Grundig (which is the same machine in a different box) making it not read discs or behave in test mode.

The same type of caps in my ReVox deemphasis circuit made horrible wooshing sounds.

Nope, it's a 63 mk2 KI. Not the mk1 philips based player, but the later model.

As for the problem. Does the laser work (can you see a faint red glow in a darkened room, when looking at it FROM AN ANGLE)?

Wow! I just looked for CD63 on the www (omitting the Mk2). BIG change from Mk1 to Mk2!
