Try switching the discs around and see if that works..ie, blank CD in tray A and original in tray B (just to isolate wiring issues).
You could also try using a different brand of CD's..

Hi,

Your concern is rather common (and known issue) on this particular brand/model.

Things that you could try:

  • use a lower speed blank disc;
  • use another brand of blank disc;
  • use a lower recording speed;
  • use the One-Touch Synchro recording to check if the recording indeed works;
  • clean the lens of the recording B Deck. (Use CD disc cleaner similar to those used in PC CD ROMs);
  • avail of the 2 years parts and labor warranty.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Unit won't play discs,orig or otherwise. Keeps flashing "no disc" although they are loaded.


If the deck in question wont read/play any disc, blank or pre-recorded, try cleaning the laser lenz.

How do you record


You put blank media in the record side and hit the record button. These CD recorders are not as easy as using a Cassette deck. You need to Finalize the disc before it can be read on a standard CD player.

The manual instructions are terrible! I can't figure out what should be showing on the display I am recording cassette to CD - Used cord output from headset to analog in recorder. Pushed the buttons as...


I don't know but you really need to evaluate the 'blank CD' assessment better. That is the proper indication that you CAN record on it in Deck B. See page 22.

Maybe follow the manual as written. For your analog recording scenario see page 25. Doesn't your cassette deck have RCA out?

The actual source is irrelevant to the "blank disc" question.

Plays fine on both decks, but does not record in any mode.when press rec, the indicator switched from saying "blanc disc" to "data disc" i got this deck used last year. not sure if it...


Check if the blank disc you are using is compatible. It sounds like the discs you are trying to record onto are not compatible with the unit OR you are trying to record in the wrong mode (Synchro v direct see below) It will only record onto CD-R or CD-RW discs. Also read the instructions for recording as there are a number of recording modes depending on menu settings.
See manual here http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=2&sqi=2&ved=0CCMQFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fmedia.zzounds.com%2Fmedia%2FRCDW500C-be7b6d8b3a46898dae1be148e1af5402.pdf&ei=3eIsTcisNI7sOce8hakK&usg=AFQjCNGCxcLKQKViw1TVJPh_baxuXkVKQA

Problem with Sony RCD-W1 CD recorder


Are you copying a disc you have previously recorded? SCMS will prevent this.

'No disc'on the CDR deck usually means the laser is faulty.Can you hear it spin the disc? When you open the tray has the disc been rotated? The sony's laser is usually reliable. Sony US may have a fixed price repair or you can have a look yourself. I have the service manual should you need it.

Deck A will not play/Deck B OK


Sounds like the CDR deck has an issue. When the disc comes out has it's position changed i.e has it been spun at all? Can you hear any motors moving? Does it work with any type of disc ( cd/cdr/cdrw)?

Problem with Sony RCD-W1 CD recorder


'No audio' comes up when you use the wrong type of cdr in the drive. You need a 'consumer audio' or 'music' specific CDR and not a generic computer cdr to use in these units.
