At $313.12 for the laser assembly from Sony Parts, this player hardly seems worth fixing to me. I would rather spend my cash on something without design flaws.

Are there any cheaper, reliable sources for the replacement laser???

Thanks to all who did the leg work.

The only other source for reliable lasers is Supermanmeliu, a ebay seller in Taiwan and he is about out of these lasers. The lasers are no longer in production and it's just NOS stock that is left.
An ebay search will show a number of laser unit readers for cheap. These require disassembly and reassembly of the whole unit. And then the laser may or may not work. I've never had any luck with these, but others have.
This is all old technology and nobody is making cd lasers anymore.

Hi very interesting thread! I have a Marantz sa 7001 and every time I turn on it goes in "no disc" a lot of time, after some minutes starts correctly and go on for hours. I changed the laser 3 or 4 years ago, do you think the add of 1k resistor is a good idea in my case? and if yes do you know where? thanks, mimmo.

The SA-7001/8001 players have a different transport system than the SA-8260. If you are having read troubles with your player I think it best to replace the laser again. They are not too costly and perhaps you should get 2 or 3 to be future proof.

Hello, my SA-8260 seems to have the TOC read error problem as it will not play SACD-only discs and plays only the CD layer on hybrid discs. If you could send the instruction file for the fix referred to in Player Assessment it would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

Papoon,
I've sent you a Private Message on this forum about this. Just follow the instructions in the email and perhaps I can help you out.

Steve

Hi, I have a Marantz SA17-S1 which seems to be similar to SA-8620 same mech and dac's. I'm having similar issues as well. TOC error. Cleaned lense and is reading all Redbook cd's but no type of SACD ( Hybrid, SACD only, even cd layer of SACD isn't READ). Just says ERROR. Would be grateful for instruction file for this. As otherwise will be left with 2 heavy paperweights. Philips sacd1000 and Marantz sa17-s1! Cheers

I have sent you a PM on this forum. Follow instructions there and you will get the files.
While the SA-17 uses the same laser mechanism as the SA-8260 I do not know if the "TOC Fix" will work. With a player as old as the SA-17 you will likely need a new laser. See posts above for information about the cost of a new laser.

Hi Steve, Sent you PM, would it matter if laser had low use in it's life or is it more age related as my player has been lying up for most of the time. I bought a spare laser /ssembly but that was 10 years ago from Sony, think it was around 100 euro then!

I've answered your message and sent files to you.
I don't really have an answer for you to the above. But for sure, see if the servo-transport is the same as the 8260 so that you can install the resistor which might make your original laser read the TOC on hybrid sacd's.
