HHB CDR 850-No laser lit up...shouldn;t there be light ie. laser

YesI when the unit is first turned on the laser will emit a red light when scaning, if no beam is present it is time to replace your player, not cost effective to repair.

Anytime I try to record with my HHD BurnIT cdr 830, the red record light will only be bleeping and the time counter will not work as well. And there will be nothing recorded on the cd.

Just a guess, but did you ever try to hit the record a second time once you're all set up to start? The first press of the record button places the machine in record/pause mode after it calibrates itself to the disc.

Tray B of my RCA CD Burner does not recognize any CDs

Are you using the correct disc type??

The manual states that only discs that are labeled:

"Compact Digital Audio Disc Recordable" (Audio CDR)


"Compact Digital Audio Disc Rewritable" (Audio CD-RW) can be used.

The popular discs labeled "Compact Recordable" and Compact Disc "Rewritable" are for use in computers, and can NOT be used on the recorder.

Page 16 of the manual shows the graphic of the logos detailed above. The manual can be downloaded for free below:

Noise / Hum in recordings

hi, i once had the same problem with a kenwood cassette deck. it would play pre-recorded tapes perfectly but when it came to recording from another source i would get an annoying hum when playing back the recording, the fault turned out to be a faulty earth connection on the phono connectors on the rear, they were dry jointed and once resoldered the unit worked and the recordings were perfect. maybe you have the same problem? hope this helps?

Denon CDR-W1500 not recording

I had the exact problem and could not get any of the CR-Rs that I had to work. I looked up the code in the user's manual where it said the error means it's not a recordable audio CD and to refer to page 6. I looked at the front of the manual and saw that it mentions that the CD-Rs must be audio CD-R discs. I did some research online and found that there are in fact differences between CD-Rs that are just marked that and those marked as Audio or Music CD-Rs. I bought a set of CD-Rs that clearly had marked "Compact Disc Digital Audio Recordable" on the package. When I inserted this disc, I had no problems getting the recording to work. So, make sure the discs you use are clearly marked "Audio" or "Music". A computer burner won't know the difference, but your Denon recorder will.

HHB CDR-850 Professional loading problem

I had the same problem with mine. The manual says to unplug it from the power and plug back in. That did'nt seem to correct anything. I also was having an issue with recording. It would'nt record data for tracks and recording would scramble. I had this burner for 10 years and loved it untill last night when it crapped out on me completely. I am VERY disappointed!

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.
