The only thing I can suggest is unplugging the player for a short time, plugging it back in and let it boot up for a minute or two before trying to play a disc.

Does it mean that some honest person starting fresh will never take off, going forward? I don't have 20 positive feedbacks. But my buyers are happy (read my latest feedback). It is unfortunate that there are dishonest sellers who do not completely disclose the unit's condition - both cosmetically and conditionally.
OP should contact seller and if that does not work, leave a negative feedback so that future buyers are aware of the seller. Of course, OP in this case OP has to bear the losses.
I have always wondered why so many Audiogon sellers had perfect feedback ratings. Now I know why.
Now I wish I had never read this post. As a newcomer, I regularly scan what's available, pricing, etc. looking to educate myself so that I make a good deal and didn't have to worry about unscrupulous sellers.
I think I liked audio better when I was ignorant.
I once sold a pair of LSA Statements on here for $500 that I had rated a 5 due to some face checking on the cabs. The buyer contacted me after recieving them and complained that I misrepresented them in my ad and demanded I give him a partial refund or he would give me negative feed back. I was fairly new on here at the time so I gave him $100 back.
A few days later he relisted them for more than I was asking originally, used the photos from my ad and gave them a 5 rating just as I had. I started a thread about it (I did not mention the buyers name) and he had it removed. When I asked the moderators why they removed it they told me it was because the subject had nothing to do with audio. Bottom line is be very careful buying and selling on here or any other site for that matter.
I have a Marantz player that occasionally spits out discs when it's first powered up. In addition to the above suggestion to turn it off, wait a minute, and then turn it back on - here are some other things:
1. Close the drawer with the remote, and if it pops back out, use the button on the faceplate.
2. Push "Play" instead of Close on the remote. If that's what you were doing anyway, push Close first and then Play in rapid succession.
3. Push the tray in with your hand (gently!) - about halfway in, the motor should take over and lock it in place
Once the disc stays in, the display should show the number of tracks, and the remaining time.
These are tricks I use with the CD67 SE, which is an old model. Usually once you get it to work, it'll work fine from there out...until the next time.
I was simply not able to try any of the troubleshooting methods suggested above simply because I dont often bring my audio gear with me when I go away. Surely not stuff thats unusable, falconquest. I felt my post was descriptive and that adding more detail was unnecessary.
You also misquoted me so partial thanks go out for that bit too (sarcastic context).
My original thanks in there sincerity were for another purchaseing option, and a better one at that.
To update it seems "ok" now. After unplugging it It was on for over a day before I had a chance to use it. Maybe it only does this when its cold. I've had intermittent things happen in the past that would only act up while cold, or after coming up to temperature or being placed to close to another heat source.
