Dear Steve,
I have SA-8400. Is there any chance to set up right angle of laser (perpendicularity perhaps) using screws on laser guides? Laser unit is brand new, but I'm unable to set it up for reading every SACD and CD. Either it reads properly all SACDs and some CDs or most CDs and some SACDs. Do I have chance in amateur condition at home to adjust the whole thing properly to have read all CDs and SACDs at one setting?

Thank You
Jirka

The SA-8400 uses the HOP 1200R laser, which is different from the one used in the SA-8260. AFAIK, there are no adjustments in installing a laser in the SA-8400, just like the SA-8260.
A new laser is not necessarily a good one. Best to just get another new laser and from a different supplier as the lasers are not overly costly.

Hi Steve, excellent article. I finally took the time to open up my SA8260 to check for the 1k resistor, and it's not there. Not surprise about that. I do have a question on what 1k resistor do I buy, for what wattage, 1 or 1/4 watt? And you can forward instruction on installing it would be greatly appreciated.



Best,
Michael

Wow, a player that has never been serviced by Marantz for "the troubles". Any 1k resistor will do, 1/4W and 1/8W are small and easier to work with.
I'll send you a PM with more information.

Steve

Just want to share good news - I've just receive new head from China - and it's works perfectly!
Initially I've order used laser, and seller send me two instead on one. I've test both - they have issues with SACD read, after short conversation with seller he propose to send original new head with discount of previous purchase - Brand New KHM 230AAA KHM 230ABA 230AAA 230ABA Laser Lens Optical pick ups for Marantz Repair Part KHM230AAA KHM 230 KHM230ABA-in Car Radios from Automobiles & Motorcycles on AliExpress and that one works perfectly and price is quite adequate - $75 USD
