Question about Philips CDR950 CD Recorder
Phillips CD recorder, older model, single deck, stops after 45-50 minutes of recording, any mode. Flashes "update" to "disc error" and unable to finalize. will only play back on recorder. Have tried cleaning lens. Also have tried every CD-R on the market to no avail. Any suggestions will be greatfully tried.
Hiya jeff you have tried a cd cleaner - But also try a DEEP CLEAN Get a screw driver unscrew the 4 or 5 screws 2 at each side maby 2 at the back Lift the lid off ans see inside. Eject the cd tray before you take the lid off as some players lock down when there is no power - anyway With the lid of you will see the lens - SORRY FAIL TO MENTION THE POWER SHOULD BE OFF and unplugged from the mains WHEN DOING THIS.!!!! BUT HOPEFULLY YOU'RE NOT AN IDIOT! lol!! Next ask your girl friend / wife / boy friend - if your like that!! get one of those cotton woll bud's you know the one's with wool on at stick normally used for picking wax from your ear! Now get some Vodka (Not to drink) sorry wet the end of the stick and carefully clean the lens around in a circle within the eye of the lens. then dry it with carefully with the other end of the stick hopefully you will see the dirt on the end you have just removed. after that has been done (do this where no kids are around) leave the lid off plug it back into the mains pop a cd-rw in record 5-10 mins of bbc 1 or a music channel or any thing else you can think of just to test if you have recorded this 10 mins then it's working. Screw the lid back on - and bobs your uncle. let me know how you got on - firstname.lastname@example.org Raverbaby

Tips for a great answer:

The recorder was switched off/unplugged after recording without ejecting the disc. The recorder could not write essential recording information onto the disc.
While REPAIR is displayed, the recorder automatically examines the recorded area of the disc and updates the track numbers and recording time data. This process takes about 40 minutes for a fully recorded disc. Finalization or further recording is possible once the REPAIR message disappears.
