    Hello, all. I purchased the subject CDP about 20 years ago after
    reading a glowing review in stereophile mag. It has performed
    flawlessly until several days ago when it abruptly starting making some
    rattling noises and now refuses to read any CDs. An inserted disk spins
    for a few seconds then stops with a resulting steady red "error"
    indicator comes on and track number 1 not being displayed. Hitting the
    "play" or "scan" buttons will again cause the CD to spin but also
    doesn't bring up any tracks.

    Googling around a bit I found others had similar issues with the unit
    and my problem could be a dirty lens (doesn't seem likely), weak/failed
    laser or some other component(s). Most of the Google info was from
    about 10 years ago.

    Can anyone add anything further and does anyone know of a competent
    repair facility (preferably in the Wash DC metro area)? Thanks for your
    time and comment. Sincerely,
    J.B. Wood, Feb 19, 2013
