I have a Pioneer PDR 609 CD recorder. I put a disc in and it says Pro disc din unlock.


This is nearly always due to cable problems. I think the cheaper optical cables can get 'kinked' quite easily, which would stop the signal coming through properly. So, first check your settings to make sure the correct cable type has been selected. If that's OK, try replacing the cable with a good quality one.

I have PIONEER PDR 609 C.D RECORDER AND I HAVE


Not a very specific problem description...

Did it ever work for you? You don't say what DOES happen when you try.

Is the signal reaching the recorder? Is it visible on the display when you select MONITOR?

Are you using CD-R AUDIO or MUSIC blank media? It requires them, not CD-R data disks.

Tape Input should be straightforward if you don't want to route it through a receiver - L and R Out from the deck to L and R Input on the CDR.

Through a receiver: if it has capacity for two decks, connect the PDR-609 itself as a the second cassette deck, then select copy, duplicate or whatever passes for it on the receiver to copy cassettes.

Without specifics of your interconnected gear I can't really go much further.

Phono is a whole 'nuther thing. Traditional turntables require a phono preamp (generally present in old receivers) to boost the tiny signal generated by the stylus to a usable level for downstream electronics. Most modern AV receivers DO NOT have a phono preamp.

hi can i record on my pioneer pdr 609 cd without using the remote control,as ive purchased a unit with out one and cant get it to record, thanks


Hi John
You should be able to record without the remote control; make sure you have a blank disc in place, then press the 'RECORD' button on the front; it should go into recording standby mode. When you want to start recording, press the button below the REC BALANCE buttons (the play/pause button, marked with a triangle and a II symbol) and this should get you going.
Try it and get back to me if not.
Hope it works!
