Default Marantz CD63 skips CD-R's

Hello!
After a year of playing CD-Rs just fine, my CD63 has begin to skip approx at the middle of the CDs.
What to do?
Thanx!
Tom

Check this Looking for the Sony CD player CDP-102 service manual
and do a search on the forum. Many threads have good info regarding your problem.

Default CD63 Skipping

If it skips at nominally the same point on each disc, it's more likely to be the laser sled drive, rather than laser itself.

A common problem on CD63's is dust / muck getting onto the gears that drive the laser sled - it's a worm drive to a gear wheel. It's the latter part that gets clogged, casing the disc to skip.

Sometimes operating skip between the first and last tracks of a CD can cure it.

Failing that just dismantle and clean the offending parts, applying some suitable (graphite-based?) lubricant that's safe for plastics.

While you're in there clean and lubricated the guide rod at one side of the sled and the bearing surface at the other side.

It fixed every one that I did.

Andy.

Thanks.
Btw, I did a search, but it didn't come up with anything specific for this kind of behaviour. It plays long, original CDs fine...

If your CD player has no problems with original CDs, then it has to be your CD-Rs burned at high speeds. The pits on the CD don't form well enough when recorded at high speeds and in most cases this is the sole cause for a CD-R not being able to be read in a CD player. Next time you burn a CD, try burning it at 8x or 4x and your CD player should sing your tune

Have fun listening.....

The player works fine now, just cleaned the lens with a cotton tip. Lucky it wasn't worse than that...
Thanks for the good advice...

I'm glad you could sort it out. I have same had the same problem with my CD63 and have cleaned both the lens and the gears and slide a couple of times and am now sick and tired of doing so .
I would like to know if there is a better transport mechanism that I can replace the Philips CDM12 with?

Thanks in advance.

Justin
