Check with Krell and if it's cost effective to fix it then fix it. If not then I'd say time to move on, there are tons of great cd players out right now, in a variety of price ranges.

Thankyou all for your input. I sent an email to Krell
earlier today about CD-DSP. Probably next week before I hear back.
Think I will wait to hear from Krell before cleaning the
laser.And thanks about the UPgrade Co., that was going to be my next step.(thanks to a search on upgrades on Audiogon).
Funny, always kept stuff for a long time, hell ,even still
have Martin Logan Sequal's from the 90's.
Will keep you posted on the next step.
This was my first post at Audiogon,and it has been extremely helpful,Markym
Patrick at Krell is the man to talk to.If indeed is the laser as others suggested then, I am afraid he is going to tell you there are no parts available.Having said that if your CD-DSP uses (and I do believe it does)the Philips cdm-3 mechanism then I know somebody who might have a NOS spare.At least I bought one from him to have as a spare for my Krell Md-1 transport.E-mail me privately.
Patrick at Krell delivered the death blow this
morning in an email.Krell cannot help with the CD-DSP.
He agreed that it probably is the drive or servo,
possibly both.Jeez, think I'm gonna blow this off
and go fishing.
Thankyou Yioryos, on your offer but the CD-DSP uses a
CDM 1 unlike your MD1.
Still might contact the Upgrade Co. just to see if
they can help.
Thankyou again for all the input, Mark
