    Hello,

    Would anybody out there have a copy of the service manual for marantz SC1000 pre-amp?
    I have been trying to track one down for quite some time with no success.
    Any info or direction as to where I could find a copy would be much appreciated.

    P.S. Also if anyone wants to part with their SC1000 pre-amp I'm very willing to buy.

    Cheers,

    Capacitor

    Okay, I deserve all that. :oops: I was thinking of a thread where someone wanted to sell his Marantz equipment but, I can't even find that here. Might have been in another section or another forum.

    It doesn't matter if it's an old thread. Someone else might come looking for a service manual and find your link and as long as it's not a Victrola they might get their answer.

    Thanks. Do you think there's a user or service manual for a Victrola? Just kidding. I do have a RCA 45 RPM record player from about 1949 along with the original manual.

    Well, I was 5 years old in 1949 and wouldn't have been buying a 45 player. I collect 45's and picked it up at a flea market back in the 70's.

    9 years later!!!!

    Yes!, Here I am. I'm still alive and kicking!
    I finally scored that Marantz SC1000 pre-amp but no darn trace of the service manual anywhere!
    I'll check in again in the next decade and a half!
    Thanks to all that have searched for me.
    But please don't stop now cos we're not done yet.:D
    Cheers,

    Capacitor

    (Maybe I can make the service manual since I have the physical unit now, would probably take me less than 9 years too!)

    BTW It's the SC1000 not SR1000.
    One is a rare pre-amp and the other a cheap receiver.

    Thanks wither 1

    Did the link I provided solve your problem? Just asking because one post says you'll check in again in the next decade and a half and the next post thanks me.

    No, it didn't solve my problem. I'm thanking you for your search efforts.

    Cheers,

    Okay. Kind of curious because, as far as I can tell, the manual I linked is for the subject device.

    The link you left took him to an SR1000 manual, he needs an SC1000 manual.

    I'm assuming that you have some idea what the probelm is. What exact issue is it that you're having with the pre-amp? A few years ago I found an old Kenwood KA-6100 Amp at a yard sale for $8. The seller said it wasn't working but I asked if I could plug it in. When it was plugged in the VU meters lit up and I could heard the click as the amp came on. When I got it home and opened it, it had enough dirt on the inside to use it as a planter. I cleaned it carefully and then inspected the fuses and noticed they were blown. So I went to the local radio shack and purchased the fuses. Then I added a CD player, a tuner, and some speakers and plugged it in again. It worked but the right channel was distorted, so I decided to deoxit all the POTS, and then assembled it again, and everything including all the lights worked perfectly. That was several years ago and it works great to this day. Remember Occam's razor, that sometimes what appears to be a serious problem complicated problem might have a simple solution. The owner thought the amp was gone, but in my youth I was a hi-end AV consultant with lots of experience in working with 70s and 80s stereo equipment. Just a thought.
