Question about Philips CDR770 CD Recorder

1 Answer

Recorder will not complete analog recording

I am recording from an album, using the manual record feature. I have not had any problems up until now, but the recorder will record 1 or 2 tracks from the album and in the middle of the next track, it abruptly stops and displays "updating" there is nothing wrong with my source album and all my connections are correct. I have not tried to resolve this by myself. I have not tried to use the record disc or record track feature on a cd. My problem seems to be while I am recording an album. Thanks for any assistance

Re: Recorder will not complete analog recording

I've discovered that it sometimes may be the disc(s) used. If I use cheap quality blank discs, I have had this problem. I use the manual record extensively with high quality discs recording from vinyl with no more issues...

I have connected my phillips cdr785 recorder the proper way to record from an external source and I get the message "start source" on the cdr side when trying to record. And it never starts...

If you're recording an analog source the recorder won't automatically start. You have to start it in sync with the playback.

If you're trying a synchronized digital recording...

Page 28 of the manual says

Start playback on the selected source.

The CD recorder starts to record simultaneously and recording in progress is shown. The remaining recording time left of the CDR(W) is displayed.

Note: If you start playback on the selected source within a track, recording starts at the beginning of the next track or after 2.7 seconds of silence in analogue recordings.

How do I record a CD from an album on a turntable?

Assuming you have a functioning turntable either self-pre-amplified or through a component (such as a receiver or integrated amp) with an internal Phono preamplifier just connect the self-preamplified TT directly to the analog inputs on the CD Recorder; or connect the CD Recorder to the receiver / integrated amp as if it is an analog tape deck (which it functionally is in this case).

I want to use the optical input s a dac without going through the recorder

Put in a blank or unfinalized disc, press Record until Record Manual shows. This is similar to an old-school cassette deck being in Pause/Record mode. That should do it. The input signal will be present on the audio outputs (both digital and analog).

The manual isn't specific about how long you can remain in Record Manual mode without starting to record on the CD. My Pioneer has a Monitor function so I don't need to place a blank disc for this.

Yes, but you, like I could use an owners manual for this thing, as it isn't as easy to operate as the Philips Audio CD recorders. Owner's manual anyone?
You can just press input select for analog, press record, wait then press 'play' to start recording.

When I record a vinyl album on a CD it all winds up on one track.

Pause each song for every recording to separate the tracks.

Converting Audio Cassettes to CDs

First off I assume you have the manual for you're 5700. if not a PDF copy is here

Assuming you have a standalone tape deck that has phono inputs and outputs connection and recording recording should be easily achieved.
Forget the coaxial unless of course your tape deck has digital outputs.
Assuming it hasn't just connect the two output sockets from the tape dec which may be labelled REC out left and REC out right to the Line in (L) and Line (R) of the CD recorder.
The physical setup is now complete.
The increment level they refer to in the manual offers you a choice of 3 final decibel output levels in other words how loud it will be when it is finally recorded onto the disc.

the last paragraph on page 16 is relevant to the setup described above.

Page 15 of your manual is all you need to achieve tape transfer to CD.
follow the steps below and choose ANALOG the source to be played is your tape deck so once the process has begun press the play button on your tape deck and you should get a decent recording. Leave everything else at their default settings until you get a better understanding of how to tweak your recordings.
Personally I transfer audio tapes directly to my PC and Audio edit them until they are perfect but I've been doing this for years.

Good luck

here's a snippet

To record from an external source:
1. Turn power ON.
2. Place a recordable audio disc (CD-R or CD-RW) label side up
3. Close TRAY II. (When a blank disc is placed in TRAY II, the display
will show BLANK.)
4. Press INPUT until the source you want to record is selected.
record a source connected to the DIGITAL IN (OPTICAL) terminal.
record a source connected to the DIGITAL IN (COAXIAL) terminal.
record a source connected to the analog LINE IN jacks.
5. Select the desired mode of track division (track number
assignment) by pressing the MANUAL/AUTO button (see the
ADVANCED RECORDING section for more information).
6. Press the RECORD button.
The unit enters record pause mode.
The PAUSE [ ] icon and REC blink on the display.
7. Press the PLAY (ENTER) [ ] button of TRAY II to start recording.
8. Play the source to be recorded.
• During digital recording, if the input signal stops for 5 seconds,
recording will stop.
• During analog recording, if the input signal stops for 20 seconds,
recording will stop.
• If the unit detects copy-prohibit signals during recording,
CAN’T COPY appears on the display and recording is stopped.
To stop recording: Press the STOP [] button
To temporarily pause recording: Press the PAUSE [ ] button.
Remember that every time recording is paused or stopped,
a new track number will be assigned.

Try adjusting the input level so the meter stays close to 0 when recording. It sounds like the levels are too hot.
