Question about Harman Kardon CDR30 2-Disc CD Recorder
Player tray would not open after several tries, finally, i was able to pulled it open with the help of a pick. since then i keep getting this flash message ( disc error) when a disc is installed. however, the recorder tray is doing ok, it plays and records from alternate units
Often times the tray and pickup lift assembly are related and there is a cam alignment. IF you pulled out with force the tray the alignment may have been upset to where the cam is not completing the lift of the Pickup and if not in the right position the laser will not be able to focus. The correct solution is at a Technicians bench where a new belt could be put in, lubrication that is required and some cleaning will be done.

Your computer audio output is definatley digital, yes? If so, make sure it is set to 2-channel PCM digital output, not 5,1 Dolby digital surround sound output. Auto / manual on the unit is for track marks to be inserted during recording. If you google the manual is out there or I can email it.

Have a look at the manual for your AV receiver, you may find that you can change the digital output format between DTS mode and PCM(audio) mode. It needs to be in PCM(audio) mode for your CD recorder to be able to record digitally. If that doesn't solve it I can only suggest recording in analogue mode, i.e. taking a stereo analogue signal from your receiver to the analogue inputs of your CD recorder.
Hope this helps

This is a problem you should refer to a qualified audio tech. it may be mechanical, but more likely a digital/logic control problem. Either way, an untrained person has no chance of resolving this problem. You may have to consider if the unit is worth the repair cost.

Most likely a belt has stretched and will not now move the tray. This happens of units more than 2 years old usually.
