Question about Pioneer PD-R509 CD Recorder
Hi, I am using the PDR-509 CD recorder, but when i switch the unit on the red light above the cd tray flashes but there is no display and none of the buttons work.
I'm not the most technical person in the world but I think I've fixed mine which had the same problem this afternoon, which is how I came to find your message!
Right.. here's what I did. It would appear that you have some kinda mechanism jam (even if there's no disc in it), so... please excuse my non-techie terminology throughout.
By the way, I probably don't need to tell you this but unplug the unit from the mains first or you might light up if you touch something!
Working with the unit facing you (control side), remove the two small screws at the back (on the metal flange) and two medium screws from the right hand and left hand sides of the main casing, then slide it off from front to back so that you can see inside the recorder. If you look in and down at the CD tray transport mechanism you should see a white plastic 'cog' wheel on the left hand side of the unit near the bottom 'floor' of the machine. Carefully rotate this wheel with a finger CLOCKWISE (pushing the wheel from front to back), slowly and gently - don't force it - and you should see the CD tray mechanism and gubbins start to move; keep rotating until the tray comes right out, or as far as you think it goes. Then, plug the unit back in, and switch on - the tray SHOULD then be taken back into the machine, the red light will flash, and the display should come on. As I say, mine has, so try it and I hope it works for you!
All the best (we'll beat these damn machines yet!)
