Can't finalize disc

I get finished making disc but it won't finalize. It goes from the 2 minute countdown til about 1:47 then back to the main screen like it done but it is not. Sometime it will go from the 2 minute to 1:40 something and then starts to countdown from 4:00 minutes but shuts off about 3:40something and goes back to the main screen. Always have been using maxwell 80 minute 70mb gold audio cds. Can u help/

Clean the laser and use a different [brand] disc. Marantz CD recorders and particularly the CDR631 is very sensitive to disc brand/makes. My deck burns Taiyo Yuden and Mitsui (MAM-A) discs consistently with almost zero problems, but discs like Memorex, ProDisc and a few other cheaper ones can result in a hiccup or two. Also, no problems with TDKs and Imations so far.

By the way, I use all computer-type discs, but if you have problems, I heard you'll get better results using 'Audio' type discs...then what's the point of buying a Marantz "Professional" recorder if you're going to use 'Audio' recordable CDs?

After i have finish recording and i am finalizing the the cd code OPC appears on the screen, and being finalize the cannot play in other cd player why?


OPC means the unit had trouble Optical Processing Calibration, which means the disc surface may be damaged. Using brand name media and being careful to not touch the recording surface would help.

It's not completing the finalization so it won't play in a CD player yet.

It's mostly in the manual

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Harman-Kardon-CDR-20-CD-Players-manual/id/386dj191/t/2/

OPC: Stands for Optical Processing Calibration.

When you see this message in the Information

Display for the Record DeckK, it means

that the laser transport inside the unit is making

the calibrations and adjustments needed so that

the recording process is optimized for the specific
disc in use.


When an unfinalized CD-R or CD-RW disc is

placed in the Record Deck%, the letters

OPCwill flash once the Table of Contents has

been read. This indicates that the unit is optimizing

its circuits for maximum compatibility with

the specific recordable disc in use. the number

and total running time of any tracks that have

already been recorded will appear in the

Information DisplayK, and the appropriate

indicator SPwill light to tell you if a CD-R or
CD-RW disc is in use.

To Finalize a disc, place it in the Record

Drawer%. Once the disc's Table of Contents

information has been read and the OPC process

has been completed, press the Finalize button

E@and note that the Finalize Indicator

Uwill begin to flash. Within three seconds,

press the Select button9*and note that

the Finalize IndicatorUwill stop flashing.

The Finalization process will take up to two

minutes, depending on the length of material

recorded on the disc. During the Finalization

process the Record Deck will not accept any
operating commands.

AFTER recording is made Tried to finalize and it says repair... what is causing this .


The CDR lost track of the information on the disc. This most often happens when the unit is powered off before the disc was ejected. Give the unit about 40 minutes to go through the disc contents and locate the tracks. When the Repair message goes away, then you can finalize the disc.

I hope this helps

Recorder shows there are 13 tracks but there's no sound and in one of my players it says disc error. I hit finalize and the screen said finalize ok? at which point I hit enter on tne jog knob. It finalized...


this a normal laser burnout problem, you need a laser spare you may find-it on electronics store, Or you try give-it back to previous owner, and get repair at repair shop.

CD trays will not open.


Use a paper clip. If you push a wire in the holes of each tray it will release the trays. The proper holes look like little dashes on the face of each tray, one end or the other.

Recording Errors


Hi. I did a google search to see how to fix mine. It's doing the same exact thing. I wonder if the CD's are the problem. I hadnt'had problems in the past, but I'm thinking maybe the companies are making their cds's a little different with the speed. I use the audio cdr's but I have had this problem.
