The laser hours only count the time the laser is ON when reading a disc.

jayctoy, You will be doing yourself a big favor if you take the readings of hours and LOL on the new laser. That will give you benchmarks for all future use and time. Steve

A couple of extra things here...... For years I used a Marigo mat with discs in my SA-8260. So, of course I tried it with the first disc in the Ruby when I got it. Didn't work. The Marigo mat is quite thin, but still it was too thick. So that was...

jayctoy, Yes, you used your player a lot. Pity you didn't take the time to check the laser use times and levels before you took it in to be repaired. But you didn't.  You mentioned that you bought an open box player, so it came with some use tim...

Tvad, thanks for the clarification.  I have been seeking first-hand knowledge of laser transport issues with the SA-10's and Ruby's for some time without much success. I mostly just wanted an idea of how long the laser mech was lasting. Now I kn...

It is unethical to sell a problematic player and not mention it in the ad. It will lead to nothing but trouble, for everyone involved. Yet people do it. The first used sacd player I bought in 2007 failed to read the first 3 sacd's I tried. Seller...

Hm, okay, you say so. I did mention that it was amongst owners who post on forums.   In the past there has been no shortage of posts on forums, more so in the days of the sacd.net forum, about Marantz laser failures and terrible Marantz service...

Yes, I received the PM. Thanks. BTW, you are the first known person to have an SA-10 laser failure and replacement amongst player owners on audio forums. These players have been around quite a while and the laser mechs do seem quite reliable. How...

The connections on the rear of the SA-10 for digital inputs are optical (Toslink), coaxial (SPDIF), USB, and for IPOD. In the event that the SACD laser becomes non-functional the player still retains DAC functionality for the above inputs. The on...

jayctoy, Since you are the one with the sacd laser issue, it would be informative if you could check and post your T22 level. If you cannot do it, then I imagine Casper at Stereo Rehab would do it before opening up your player. It takes only a f...

Some time ago I wrote about Aging Mode and how people can check their laser hours and laser output levels. I check my laser hours on the first of every month, just because I can do it. I also check laser output levels every 6 months. The laser out...

Good to read that Stereo Rehab can do the deed.

immathewj, I would tend to think that your player is as it was described by MD when you bought it. MD is not like Accessories4Less. It came as it did because the previous people had obviously discarded the packing material and misplaced the power...

Classerich, I think I have a good idea about your situation.  Since the introduction of the SACD-M transport assemblies in the SA-7 and SA-11S2 players, Marantz Service Centers would only replace the whole SACD-M assembly, not just the laser. An...

jayctoy, Here is something else that you can do before you take your player in that will only take you one minute and is not technical or difficult. It would be good if you could check the hours of use on each laser.  1. Enter aging mode as desc...
