Marantz Dcc

Hi , I have a Marantz Dcc 92 machine which has started to malfunction in that the sound drops outs (completely or intermittently) whenever I try to use it. The machines as new and the heads are clean and from what I`ve read its a common fault amongst dcc machines. Can anyone explain to me what the cause is and provide a solution as to how to fix this ?

the head amplifier behind and underneath the deck is the suspect for most of the case.

there is a pot on that board can adjust the playback level. it might need a try too.
