Default Dead Marantz CD63

Hi folks

My precious, beloved Marantz CD-63 I bought in 1994 with my first paycheck has just died on me, it had showed no signs of failure, it had been working perfectly until I came to turn it on today and nada, nothing, zilch. Replaced the plug fuse and still nothing, so it appears to be dead as the proverbial dodo.

I've replaced it with a secondhand Cambridge Audio Azur 340C that I am happy with, so now I have a dead CD63 to play with.

While I've done quite a bit of electronics over the years and am fairly competent with a soldering iron, I have never done any DIY audio projects before, so I figure this CD63 would be a good starting point to learn.

Of course, getting it working would be the number 1 task, then I'd like to try some upgrades.

As I'm new to the world of DIY Audio I thought it was a good idea to ask for advice before I begin.

First thing, check all internal fuses. If they are OK, measure to see if you have any AC coming out of the mains transformer.

There is a thermal fuse inside the transformer, if it has failed it's virtually game over.

Cheers, I'll get the multi-tester out and see what I can determine tomorrow.
