Question about RCA CDRW120 2-Disc CD Recorder

1 Answer

Cd recorder/player will not power up.

I have a RCA CD Recorder and Player. It really has worked well over the last few years, but today I tried to turn it on and I see nothing to indicate that it is turned on: no lights, no disk drawers come out, etc. I tried it in a different plug and it does not work. I tried moving the fixed plug and cord around and there does not seem to be a short. The only thing I noticed was a strange, faint plastic smell in the cabinet. What can this be and what might it cost to fix it? Is it worth it after 4 years?

Hi, I'm assuming you have changed the fuse inside the plug. The poblem could be an internal fuse inside the amplifier which has blown due to a possible power cut or surge. The burning plastic smell could also be a few capacitors that have blown.

It sounds like a definite open up and take a look around job, if you want to you can open up the cd player and take a look for yourself, but BE CAREFUL. A service engineer may require to change the power board inside the cd player or other boards, it is very rare for an engineer to change components unless it is easy to do so. I believe some engineers will have a look around for you at no cost to you and evaluate the problem. As for cost your probably looking at over £100 for parts and labour depending on the engineer.

Hope this helps
Rob

I expected that the RCA leads from my turntable would just plug into the back of the RCD-W500C, but the manual indicates a somewhat complex cabling arrangement through the amplifier. I have not been able...


Your new cd player/recorder is a "component piece" as is your turntable,cassette player, reel to reel or CD player. Connect it as you would any other component piece of stereo equipment. Set up your recorder to "record" in real time(not high speed or synch record). Your tape recorder records anything that is playing through your reciever to your speakers. So, treat your "CD" recorder as you would a "CASSETTE TAPE" recorder. Play your vinyl record on your turntable and record to CD on your CD recorder ! Pay special attention to the dubbing speed, you will not use "synch or high speed !! Good Luck

Tray B of my RCA CD Burner does not recognize any CDs


Are you using the correct disc type??

The manual states that only discs that are labeled:

"Compact Digital Audio Disc Recordable" (Audio CDR)

*or*

"Compact Digital Audio Disc Rewritable" (Audio CD-RW) can be used.

The popular discs labeled "Compact Recordable" and Compact Disc "Rewritable" are for use in computers, and can NOT be used on the recorder.

Page 16 of the manual shows the graphic of the logos detailed above. The manual can be downloaded for free below:

RCA CD recorder/player CDRW120


You sure it's recognizing the CDR? And you are using 'consumer audio' cdr? Watch it at all times. If it 'opc fails' after you put a blank in it still shows as a CDR and 0:00 on the display but won't record. It's easy to miss.

Recorded finalized CD's will not play on standard CD player


Are you using the same brand of discs you used to? Do they palyback on the machine in both the record and the playback deck? Do your old cdr's you recorded still play in the standard cd player? You can try the diagnostics - hold down the 'play' and 'fwd' keys on the record side as you power it on.

Could be the dvd player/lens. The player sucks up dust through the
player's caddy and after a while it won't read discs anymore.
A cd cleaner or a good (gently dosed) blow with compressed air might help.
