Much loved Marantz CD5000, fully functional if the loading drawer decides to close but more often than not it opens then in response to close/play displays 'Reading' when there's nothing to read because the drawer hasn't closed. Neither a gentle nudge nor full push closure makes any difference.

Have been advised this is probably a simple problem with the drawer loading switch. How do I fix this economically? Does it have to go to a hi fi specialist (few and far between in these days of disposeabilty) or is it a universal part any computer technician should be able to fit?!

Thanks

Suzy
 
Sounds like it could be the switch as you say but could also be a belt. No universal parts for this kind of repair. A local guy should be able to fix it for you. If you contact Marantz they could suggest the closest service center. I have used United Radio in Syracuse NY and recommend them highly. The are authorized and have all the parts on hand. Here is a link to their site:

Thanks Americanaudiophile. Unfortunately I'm in Manchester, UK, so Syracuse NY is a little far away! But thanks for the suggestion!!
