    Default Marantz CD94mk2 drawer not opening

    I've just started a new project - getting this classic CDP to work. I looked inside and the rubber belts have disintegrated. When I hit the open button there's a whirring sound for a few seconds but I can't see any wheels turning. I'm hoping new belts will sort this out and I've seen a few sets on eBay. Does anyone know the best set, and how easy is it to replace them?

    They're a bit of a sod to replace and you'll need to keep on doing it - the damn thing chews through belts at an alarming rate! (Or maybe it's just mine...). Wonderful player, though, and well worth doing.

    You can buy a kit from Thakker online for 16.99Euro so i would say that's as good a place to start as any.

    Thanks for the words of support Andy, I appreciate them. Is this based on personal experience as apparently this mech is a particular bugger to sort out.

    Cheers Adam, I've bought the Thakker belts, I believe I'll need to clean the wheels with isopropyl alcohol, where do you get this from, Boots?

    You should be able to get IPA from any decent pharmacy.

    I believe so. Mine usually mysteriously finds its way into a bottle in my bag when I'm at work...
