Do you have the software? If you don't have the software CD, you can download them in the support section of Phillips -

Where can I find an antenna for this unit?

External FM antennas can be had for as little as $7 for the a simple dipole version (looks like a "T") to a highly directional outdoor type for over $150 at your local Radio Shack below:

The simple $7 dipole is a "twin lead" 300 ohm type that many home stereos shipped with because they are inexpensive, take up little room in the box and work surprisingly well for all but the very distant of stations. These antennas are also found for sale in many department and some hardware stores too. Your stereo may not offer twin lead or 300 ohm hook ups (2 terminal screws near the ANT label) but only a 75 ohm connection (like your cable tv connections), in which case, you'll need an inexpensive 300 to 75 (terminal to cable) ohm balun (or matching transformer) like this one below:

or to go the other way - from 75 to 300 (cable to terminal) ohm balun like this one:

Can mp3,ipod connect to philips FW-R7 with cd

All you need to get them to play is a "dock" and a 3.5mm Jack to two RCA phono plugs lead.
The Jack goes into the headphone output and the RCA's go into any spare socket on the back of the unit IE tape/cd.
Infact you just need the lead, plug it into the headphone output of the Ipod or MP3 player. But the dock will keep the battery charged and you get a remote with the dock, so you don't need to get out of your chair, to operate the player.

My recently made music CD will NOT play in our Philips FW-R7. It will play on all our computers and DVD players. The message is "Wrong Disc." Other music CD we've made do play fine in the FW-R7.

This is common with burned cd's they have trouble playing in different sets. Do prerecorder cd's play fine in your philips? If those are having trouble also you could improve it's playability possibly with a cleaning of the opu. Optical pick up.

Recording trouble

Hi again,

I understand. Must be a glitch somewhere. Anyways, I already posted possible solutions here your original posting/problem. They were:
1. Power on the Philips FW-R7, leave the left tray empty and closed. Open the tray and put in a recorded CD (not a CDR but a regular CD from your music collection), close the right tray. Wait a couple of seconds as the FW-R7 reads the CD. Now open the tray, remove the music CD and insert your CDR. The FW-R7 should read the CDR without the error message and record to the CDR from any source. Let me know if this works for you;
2. laser cleaning or realignment (would need a service center);
3. try using lower then 40X blank CDs.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Shelf system shuts after a few minutes philips FW-R7

In power supply check capacitors ,one of them is leake or dry.Best way of detecting this cap is to have freez it (coolant) to sprey on the sections in power supply and thanindividual capacitors this will definately solve your problem.
