Default marantz cd4000

Hi everybody

Currently have a marantz cd4000 everthing works fine apart from
the display says no disc the disc does not spin just twitches a fraction stops and twitches again

Is this a simple vam1201 replacement or could it be board trouble instead .

The laser has been cleaned once with a dry brush disc and with alcohol on a cotton bud still same....

Appreciate any help as dont want to waste money on laser

That does sound like a dead laser. If the laser cant see the disc, that's what happens as it runs through it's focus calibration stage. You should be able to see the laser lens move as it attempts to focus on the disc.

It might be worth trying to adjust the potentiometer on the laser itself - do this carefully though as over adjusting it can kill a working laser.
