Question about Philips Audio & Video Receivers

5 Answers

I have a Philips CDR-770 CD Recorder. When I insert a laser lens cleaner CD, the unit says there is no CD in the draw. I have tried 3 different manufacturers of laser lens cleaner CDs with the same results. It works fine with empty, unfinalized, & finalized CDs but not the lens cleaner CD. Is this a common problem with this model CD Recorder? Is there something that will work to clean the laser lens? Please let me know. Thanks.

    If the lens needs to be replaced, why does the lens read and record all other CDs and functions properly except when a lens cleaner CD is inserted?

If it works fine on finalized CDs, it's not the lens.
Instead of the "lens cleaning CD" try shooting a few shots of "Dust off" compressed CO2 style stuff into the player mechanism.
That will work better than the CD version cleaner

I think your does not need to be cleaned. If you want anyway you can use a special lens cleaner or take it to a service shop to avoid any damage.

1.You night put the CD cleaner upside down
2. Try to get genuine Philips CD Lens Cleaner ($6 at Walmart)
3. You can clean the lens with cotton swab and 50 % isopropyl alcohol (around $1 in Pharmacy) or laser lens clening liquid.
Good Luck

Welcome to Fixya! You don't need a new Lens. This a Delicate Procedure But, You will need to get to the Lens whether you need to Disassemble the Unit or What. Get a Q-Tip and some Rubbing Alcohol and Clean the Lens and you should be just Fine.

Your shop is FOS. What's so special about them regarding YOUR recorder? CDR-A's that conform to the Philips standard are very common.

Web search "cdr audio". I buy mine in bulk on eBay.

When the CD player loads properly and still reads as no disk this indicates that the player lens (Optical device which reads the disk information) Is either dirty or bad. The only option you have is to get a disk lens cleaner and run it on the system. Once you run it, it is supposed to work if the lens is not spoilt. Otherwise you will just have to replace the lens by taking it to a repairer.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Unit powers on fine, but will not play a


If this problem occurs only at this cd/dvd it's a disk problem. If it occurs on various disks try using a cd/dvd cleaner set, a wet one is better. Follow the instructions on the set. The main idea is to put one drip of the included liquid at the set (usually isopropyl alchohol) at a specific place (like small brush) on the disk surface and play this disk. This way the "brush" will clean up the laser lens and after that the cd/dvd player will be able to read the disks. BE CAREFULL not to put too much liquid on the "brush". In case this don't solve your problem, the cd player needs laser lens replacement by a technician.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or add a testimonial.

The problem of reading, insert disk, is that the mechanism of the player ....the problem is not on the lens its in your player mechanism. I suggest you that, in the mechanism which the lens are moving if u see a roller that is the problem and its already in dirt and dust..u better clean that by using a lighter fluid and then take the old grease change it with new one with good quality..after that it will be okay.

Either the optics have failed or the lens is dirty. Try opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Basically the unit can not read the disk and is requesting that you insert one. If the cleaning fails to resolve the problem, you will need to have the optics replaced.
