Question about Marantz CDR631 CD Recorder

1 Answer

Looong initializing phase followed by "disc error"

After I boot up the CDR631, I put the fresh, blank, completely unused, brand new Memorex CDR in.
Then, a longer than usual initializing phase occurs, followed consistently by a blinking "disc error" message.
This used to happen occasionally, then with increasing frequency.  Usually, booting down and trying a new disc works.   
But as of this morning, it won't accept any disc.   
I've always used Memorex's. They've always worked.  So please don't shoot back the standard "try better media" answer. The media isn't the problem.
Thanks in advance for any insights!!!

Hi...

How long have you had the CDR631?

I would suggest a good cleaning of the laser lens assembly. NOT
some cheapy cleaner disc either.

If youre not comfy with messing with small electronics let a tech do it.
Marantz is worth it.

I have a Marantz CDR 615 and it won't let me record anything-any help would begreat thanks


What kind of error are you getting? Does it attempt to calibrate then display the entire disc as being full? If that try a blank that will tolerate recording at the 1x speed. Nowadays the only thing you will likely find are discs meant for audio recording or data discs that can record at speeds as low as 1x. If you can find some of the earlier kodak, Ampex/Quantegy, japanese maxells, etc then you will be okay. Also it may not be obvious but the cdr 615/620 will not record on cd-rw's
I bought one of those new and had nothing but trouble out of the phillips cdd2000 module that had to be replaced 3 times (3rd time at my expense of $300) but Superscope in Aurora, IL was good about support. Ironically I seam to remember a class action suit against Phillips over their very flaky cdd2000 drives.

A cdr630 twelve years old will not record on any blank discs optical fail on maxell tdk and all brands.do you know what discs i can buy for this machine.marantz state discs with a green dye but i cannot...


The manual states that 74 minute 650MB 1-4X disks run best; my machine would not burn anything I had, eventually I found 650MB crrw's on ebay for as cheap as 2 cents a piece, I have a fair number of them and so far every single one has worked. Imation 800Mb cd's seem to work 80% for me.

You can try other brands of audio cdr but it sounds like your laser is on it's way out. Some find cdrw's still work after cdr's have stopped being recognised.

Won't record


I've just spoken to a friend who also has one of these older Philips recorders & he has the same problem.

As per my previous post, he fixed his problem by locating old stocks of blanks. New audio discs seem to have been manufactured & optimised for fast writing speeds (up to 32x speed) & this is causing the problem (you can't write at x1 or x2 speed to these new speedy discs).

Trying a few different brands of discs to try out is a whole lot cheaper than a repair. I suggest when you find a brand that works, you stock up on these discs as it seems they will become ever rarer.

Good luck!

What does it do or not do? Does it read the blank properly? If it does and comes up as ready to record you need to check the inputs first and work forward from there. If it comes up with No Disc error or OPC error you may want to buy some different media to see if that solves the problem. We have three of these beasts and they seem to be particular about the media used.Our best luck has been with Memorex and Maxell.

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.
