I know there are a few hi-fi experts on here, so the benefit of your expertise would be appreciated.
My CD player is less than 3 years old (Marantz CD6006 UK edition) and has suddenly started behaving erratically. It plays a few seconds of a track then randomly starts the track again, or another one, then ejects and reloads for no reason. It no longer responds to commands either from the remote or from buttons on the machine. I have cleaned the lens to no avail, but I suspect it’s more than just a laser issue. My last Marantz CD player lasted over 20 years, so I would welcome any advice before hurling this one out of the window.
