Disc won't initialize or record, keeps saying no disc or opc erro
I have a philips dual deck cd (cdr-778) recorder, and I am trying to record from my digital 8 track, and I put in an 80 minute cd-r music cd, and it shows (no disc). I know it's not upside down, and I have tried at least ten new cd's and still the same thing. Other times inconsistently it will say initializing, but then after a while it will say opc error. So it goes back and forth between those two readings. I have used this alot in the past and never remember having this problem. Is it the wrong cd, or do you think there is a malfunction? Please give me some insight on what else to try. Thanks Shannon Tormoen.

la cdr765 de philips es una grabadora de pc 3610 de philips o hp7200, el opc error es la lente esta mal, compra ina grabadora y cambia los 2 circuitos de la mecanica original de la cdr765 y desmonta la 3640/7200 y ponle los circuitos montas y a disfrutar.
I HAVE A PHILIPS CDR 870 "OPC FAIL" PROBLEM. I HAVE RECORDED ONTO CD-RW, AND NOT YET FINALISED THE DISK AFTER RECORDING, IN ORDER THAT I CAN GO BACK LATER TO ADD FURTHER RECORDINGS. AFTER SWITCHING THE MACHINE BACK ON OPC THEN OPC FAIL FOLLOWS, EVEN WITH NEW DISKS CD-R AND CD-RW. MGHT THE MACHINE ITSELF REQUIE CLEANING OR IS THIS A FAULT? I AM USING MAXCELL DISKS, BOTH TYPES. THANKS. JEREMY. GATESHEAD.
the recorder philips cdr-778 put my 80 min sony cd-r audio in it start recording 20 second on track 1 go to track 2 for 20 second then stops goes to update some times it reads no disc when installing the disc we have been recording at the Church for the past 2 years
The disc you need to use to record is "PHILIPS CDR MUSIC". That is what it should day on the top of the disc. On the left side of the disc, it should say "DIGITAL AUDIO RECORDABLE". I spent a lot of money buying the wrong discs before finally finding the correct one. So I know your frustration!
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.
how would I go about fixing the lazer problem with this issue of OPC Error when I push record. Sometimes when I use a lens cleaner, it will records some cds and then the error shows up again. Any help, Thanks
Reading the instruction manual - yes, life experience has taught me some really useful stuff! -
Under 'Discs for recording' on page 7 it says at end of section
To ensure proper working of the set we recommend the use of PHILIPS audio CDR and audio CDRW discs only'
Roughly translated I read this to me - 'don't blame us if the set don't work using other (non-compatible) discs' !!
