SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: RECORDING LEVEL IS NOW INOP

Wide open as in you cannot control the gain? If so I would suggest controling it from your mixer using a second zone or record out.

SOURCE: for sony rcd-w500c/w100 won't go to record mode.

Make sure you're using CD-R AUDIO or MUSIC blank discs. It won't record onto data discs.

Need manual for toshiba D-vr 610 recorder


For VHS -> DVD dubbing, make sure that you put in a compatible writable DVD with enough space for the video. For dubbing a DVD to VHS, make sure that you have a VHS tape with the erase protection tab on the tape. Insert the blank media in the correct side and the media that you want to record in the other. Press Setup on the remote, then select the General Settings menu. Then select Recording and finally Dubbing. (Use the up/down arrows to navigate the menus and press Enter to select an option.) Select the type of dubbing that you want to do. Press Setup to exit. Then press the DVD or VCR button (with the item to record) and press play and pause when you reach the point that you want to start the recording. Then press the other device button and press the Dubbing button (on the remote or the unit). Press Stop when done recording the selection.

Note: copy-protected videos can't be dubbed.

Crutchfield and Toshiba both have the manual for the DVR-610 . Crutchfield has the manual here: http://a248.e.akamai.net/pix.crutchfield.com/Manuals/052/052DVR610.PDF . See page 49 for a set of screen captures of the steps for duplicating a video.

I hope this helps.

NEED operators manual for ITRR-501 retro 5 in 1. lost mamual. NEED TO KNOW how to record to CD Disc. Also will it record fro records to disc and record cassett to disk. PLEASE SEND me a manual. OR a zerox...


The unit will record to CD from the turntable, cassette or the AUX port. Place a blank CD-R or CD-RW in the CD tray. (Note: CD-RW discs may not play on other CD players.) Press the Phono, Tape or Aux button to select your audio source for recording. (For Aux, you will need to connect the source device to the AUX port in the back of the ITRR-501.) Wait for the CD disc to load and check for any indicator lights (you should see the "NO TOC" and "CD" or "CD-RW" lights lit). Select your Track increment (or Auto Manual for unattended track formation).Press Record button and the up arrow to adjust the recording level.

If you are recording from an LP, put the tone arm down on the record. For all sources, press Play. Press Stop to end recording or Pause to temporarily break the recording. Press the Track Increment button to advance the track number if you are doing so.

To finalize your CD-R to make it readable on all players: after stopping the recording, press the Finalize button.

The manuals for Innovative Technology products are available here: http://www.ithomeproducts.com/support . The products are listed in alphabetical order. The direct link to the ITRR-501 manual in English is http://www.ithomeproducts.com/sites/default/files/pdf/ITRR-501.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I have just put a blank disc into my sony mds s40 to record but now nothing works on the player....i just keep getting a small red flashing toc, i've tried unplugging from mains then re connecting but...


You may have the disc shutter closed preventing recording. You should never interrupt the recorder when it is trying to write to disc, you probably corrupted the table of contents (TOC) on the disc and need to reformat it to use it again.
If your deck is older you may have worn out the recording heads preventing it from writing to the disc in the worst case.

Suddenly the record button won't work...it just won't depress or light up...it has always work so well. Can you tell me what the problem is?


check your disc - do you have the little tab slide over to prevent recording? (like a cassette has on the top)? Also, very important with MiniDiscs, or home CD recorders, when you press STOP, you still need power for another 30 seconds or so for the unit to write the TOC - table of contents. Without the TOC, your disc cannot find where anything is. So , make sure you have a FRESH battery and/or AC adapter when recording. Try a new blank disk with fresh batteries, okay?

Kenwood MD plays ok but recordings fail to play; U TOC error?


Without a decent Table Of Contents, your MiniDisc will NOT work, as you've found out. Does it matter what brand of MD you use? I would record it at "1X" and NOT 4x speed too. Try erasing a blank minidisc first and then shut off the unit and then turn it back on and see if the TOC works. Try adding a title, then turn it off and back on. Then try the CD to MD.

How to switch the tape speed on Go Video dvd/tape.


  1. Press SETUP,
  2. Toggle with the left/right arrow to the RECORDING OPTIONS (icon has a dot and the letters REC below it in the icon menus at the top of the set up screen.)
  3. While RECORDING options is selected, press the DOWN arrow to select VCR RECORD QUALITY.
  4. Press ENTER to go to the submenu.
  5. Use the ARROW UP/DOWN buttons to select the desired quality.
  6. Press ENTER to confirm selection.
  7. Press SETUP to exit the menu.
This is the same procedure for selecting the quality for the DVR recording speeds.

VHS speeds are:
SLP is 3x the recording time of SP.

DVR recording options are:

HQ=1 hour
SP=2 hours
EP=4 hours
SLP=6 hours

per disc.

Converting Audio Cassettes to CDs


First off I assume you have the manual for you're 5700. if not a PDF copy is here
http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000027911.pdf

Assuming you have a standalone tape deck that has phono inputs and outputs connection and recording recording should be easily achieved.
Forget the coaxial unless of course your tape deck has digital outputs.
Assuming it hasn't just connect the two output sockets from the tape dec which may be labelled REC out left and REC out right to the Line in (L) and Line (R) of the CD recorder.
The physical setup is now complete.
The increment level they refer to in the manual offers you a choice of 3 final decibel output levels in other words how loud it will be when it is finally recorded onto the disc.

the last paragraph on page 16 is relevant to the setup described above.

Page 15 of your manual is all you need to achieve tape transfer to CD.
follow the steps below and choose ANALOG the source to be played is your tape deck so once the process has begun press the play button on your tape deck and you should get a decent recording. Leave everything else at their default settings until you get a better understanding of how to tweak your recordings.
Personally I transfer audio tapes directly to my PC and Audio edit them until they are perfect but I've been doing this for years.

Good luck


here's a snippet

To record from an external source:
1. Turn power ON.
2. Place a recordable audio disc (CD-R or CD-RW) label side up
in TRAY II.
3. Close TRAY II. (When a blank disc is placed in TRAY II, the display
will show BLANK.)
4. Press INPUT until the source you want to record is selected.
DIGITAL OPTICAL:
record a source connected to the DIGITAL IN (OPTICAL) terminal.
DIGITAL COAXIAL:
record a source connected to the DIGITAL IN (COAXIAL) terminal.
ANALOG:
record a source connected to the analog LINE IN jacks.
5. Select the desired mode of track division (track number
assignment) by pressing the MANUAL/AUTO button (see the
ADVANCED RECORDING section for more information).
6. Press the RECORD button.
The unit enters record pause mode.
The PAUSE [ ] icon and REC blink on the display.
7. Press the PLAY (ENTER) [ ] button of TRAY II to start recording.
8. Play the source to be recorded.
• During digital recording, if the input signal stops for 5 seconds,
recording will stop.
• During analog recording, if the input signal stops for 20 seconds,
recording will stop.
• If the unit detects copy-prohibit signals during recording,
CAN’T COPY appears on the display and recording is stopped.
To stop recording: Press the STOP [] button
To temporarily pause recording: Press the PAUSE [ ] button.
Remember that every time recording is paused or stopped,

Samsung R155 Recording from VHS Issues


The reason why you are having this problem is because you haven't finalized the disc. In able for you to play that Burned DVD that you have you need to Finalized the disc. Finalizing a recordable optical disc means writing the disc's lead-in (the Table of Contents or TOC) and lead-out information (blank data that fills up the unused space at the end of the disc) so that a DVD player will know where the various tracks begin and end. Without the TOC, a conventional DVD player will not be able to read the contents of the disc. Once the disc is finalized, no more information can be written to it. Finalizing takes about two or three minutes. To finalize a DVD-RW/DVD-R: 1. Press the Menu button with the disc stopped. 2. Select Disc Manager and press Enter or the right arrow. 3. Select Disc Finalize and press Enter or the right arrow. You will be asked twice if you are sure that you want to finalize the disc. Select Yes and press Enter. Once the disc is finalized, you cannot delete entries from the record list. After being finalized, the DVD-R/DVD-RW (video mode) operates in the same manner as a DVD-Video. Recorded discs must be finalized in order to play back in non-Samsung DVD players. A DVD-RW disc that has been recorded by DAO (disk-at-once mode) in a PC cannot be unfinalized. A DVD-RW disc that has been recorded in Video Mode on a non-Samsung recorder cannot be unfinalized by a Samsung recorder. A DVD-R disc cannot be unfinalized. Note: Finalization does not apply to DVD-RAM. If you cannot finalize a DVD-R or DVD-RW disc, make sure that Disc Protection is turned off. If you are still having difficulty, you may try calling technical support of SAMSUNG. Note: Do not turn the recorder off while it is finalizing the disc. Data on the disc will be damaged if the finalization process is interrupted.
