Personally, I don't think that lens cleaning CDs are of any use . Atleast, ones that I used , didn't give any result .So I ended up opening the cd drive / DVD player and cleaning the lens myself by some clean cotton and some mild alcohol or with the liquid solution provided with the CD cleaning kit, and yes it worked .

It might not be the lens. My friend has the same player with this problem and it turned out to be the transport mechanism, not the lens. If its under warranty, its advisable not to try and fix it yourself. Have you contacted the dealer you bought it from?

Sorry to hear that. I have a very good technician here in Bangalore, so even if my CDP was in warranty, I would prefer giving it to him than the service center. It's better you do not try any DIY repairs if you are not confident enough. Also I would never use lens cleaners as it could do more damage...better to let a service guy first diagnose the the source of the problem.

Cinebels usually deals in Marantz, if they have a showroom in Kolkata, perhaps they can help you...or some forum members from Kolkata can point you out to a good technician.

I got this Marantz dealer from another thread:

Harmonie Audio ( Mr. Jagwani) - 13,Shyama Charan Smriti Tirtha Road,P.O: New Alipore.

Forum members have praised Mr. Jagwani for his knowledge and hospitality.

There are two good technicians in Kolkata that I know if, one Mr Tanna and the other Mr Mondol. Any dealer you go to in Kolkata they will take the equipment and just send it over to them so its better if you go to them directly.
