You may need a new laser - it's a sony unit inside.

SOURCE: philips cdr 760 cd recorder: OPC FAILED

I have a Phillips 775 CD Recorder, and can only get it to record using Maxell CD-R Music Pro brand blank discs. They usually come in packs of 10 and are in full-size jewel cases. Haven't bought any in awhile and am not sure about availability.Hope this helps.

I've owned one for years, and yes... depending on how many discs you burn, you may need a new tray. You can call Marantz and they will ship one to you. They will also send you a diagram of how to replace it. Pretty simple.

SOURCE: On my Marantz CDR-630, how do you erase unwanted

Which recordable disks are you asking about? "Erase" will only work on CD-RW and does nothing on CD-R.

Once you've recorded onto CD-R all you can do is add additional material to it until the disk is finalised to allow it to be played on virtually all CD players. The same goes with CD-RW, but with those you have the option to erase the entire disk and start again from scratch. You can also delete individual tracks from a CD-RW but the space does not become available for additional recordings until the disk is totally erased.

Perhaps you'll find the .pdf manual to be of use:-

I hope that this has answered your question, all I ask in return is that you return the favour by rating my answer.

SOURCE: my marantz cdr 630 gives an error OPCFAIL with all

There are only two possible sulutions. First, the machine is quite fussy about which brand of discs you use, so a different type may work. However, as you say "all the discs" I believe you may have tried this already. The second and in my experience most likely cause is that the lazer is getting weak with age / use. Sometimes cleaning it (very carefully with a q-tip and neat isopropyl alcohol) can extend its life to a degree, but I am afraid once it reaches this stage the only rel solution is to replace the lazer mechanism. I have owned my machine for about 7 years and in that time it has had three new lazer mechs and the the third one is now giving the same problem. I don't recall how much the last repair was, but it wasn't cheap. Frankly I am not going to bother now as PC writers are a much cheaper and more dependable option. I going to put my 630 on Ebay for spares or repair. Of course if you do a lot of "real time" recording to disc the Marantz may be worth fixing. If so, these people may be able to help http://www.nsslimited.co.uk/ Best of luck. Les.

There are a lot of forums which discuss OPC failure and it strikes every hardware maker and brand of media.

The bottom line is that certain media and certain writers just don't get along.

The manual:

"I don't buy expensive blanks. I buy modest quality blanks and watch
for sales so that I can them for about a dime a piece after the rebate
check comes in. If I have an OPC Fail message, I try another blank. If
I find that they consistently fail (about half a buck wasted) I move
the stack over to the computer (which seems to work fine with these)
and buy another stack of blanks of a different brand next time I see a
good price..."

an interesting workaround:

"CDRW 5000 work around for OPC FAIL
Here's a work around for OPC FAIL on cdrw 5000 -

method 1: turn unit on at least 30 minutes or more before use (this seems to work best for me)

method 2: run OPC on an old cd that always works - after OPC passes, remove old cd and insert new CD (you only get 99 OPC runs per disc)

-or use a combination of the two methods

I've always used TDK and I recently bought a new batch and they stopped working. The old ones still work everytime. I don't know enough about the system to guess what the difference is.

side note: CDRW 2000 will finalise discs from the cdrw 5000 but not the other way around.

Hope that helps "

Why do I get OPC error when trying to record on aCDRW ON a philips cdr 785


Common issue. The lasers/transports in these are terribly unreliable.
More of these hit repair stores and skips than pints of beer down a football thugs throat.
cut your time and loses and invest in one from any brand other than Philips. pioneer and Yamaha make exceedingly good CD-R recorders for the home user. Hhb, marantz, fostex for the pro market

Hi.I have CD Recorder Marantz DR6000.After reading and initalizing blank CD-R Audio next on display show OPC ERROR.It,s reading all audio CD,s,oryginal,and CD-R.When I wanna finalized old CD-R,recorded by...


DR-6000 only accepts CD-R audio or CD-R music discs, not the standard CD-R discs. the difference is that the audio and music discs have the OPC formatted differently and they cost a bit more because they include the royalties fee. Standard CD-R discs won't work in this recorder. The correct discs have compact disc "digital audio" logo on them.

The manual states that 74 minute 650MB 1-4X disks run best; my machine would not burn anything I had, eventually I found 650MB crrw's on ebay for as cheap as 2 cents a piece, I have a fair number of them and so far every single one has worked. Imation 800Mb cd's seem to work 80% for me.

We have the same problem with our CD duplicator at our church. When the duplicator finishes it always shows 'fail' but the copied CD-R appear to have copied correctly and play on other players.

CDR tray


it's more than likely the servo board which is fixed under the mechanism.
this is very common but i'm not sure which component fails on the board but i've always got hold of donor recorders and switched the servo boards and all was fine.

CDR is not working


have a look on ebay for a cheap working donor recorder as spares are very expensive and very hard to get hold of.
i'm guessing your recorder either doesn't read discs, or it won't eject? which is very common and means either the servo board is faulty or the laser.

The following recorders i know off hand for a donor mechanism are:

MARANTZ DR-6050
PHILIPS CDR-775
PHILIPS CDR-770

if it proves to be just a faulty laser, all 3 of the above have the same laser unit.
if it proves to be a faulty servo board, all 3 have the same servo boards except if you fit one out of a philips model it will show 'PHILIPS CD RECORDER' on the display at power up but will still work nontheless.
obviously if a marantz is found it will show 'MARANTZ CD RECORDER' as normal.

hope this helps.

Won't record


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.

Good luck!

OPC ERROR


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

RCA CD recorder/player CDRW120


You sure it's recognizing the CDR? And you are using 'consumer audio' cdr? Watch it at all times. If it 'opc fails' after you put a blank in it still shows as a CDR and 0:00 on the display but won't record. It's easy to miss.
