Marantz CD63SE laser transport mechanism replacement

An elderly, but still sought after Marantz CD63SE was bought into the shop last week, with the fault reported that CD’s would no longer play. After approximately 15 years of use, this is a common situation, as the laser power will gradually reduce over time to the point where it can no longer focus reliably on the spinning CD disc – however with the easy availability of VAM1202 CD mechanisms for below £20, repair is a viable option over and above the purchase of a new CD player.
