Hi Dave
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!)

Have pioneer pdr-509 will set up for recording, but recording levels are very low with level knob cranked up. no recording levels lights.


A lot of that depends on your external device. What is it? Please don't say it's a turntable.

When you say it won't set up, what DOES it do?

How can you CD record from phono


One way would be to get a CD audio recorder. Google 'cd recorder'. There are many out there. I've had a Pioneer PDR-509 since 2001 and am very happy with it.

Consumer machines require CD-R Audio media which are slightly more expensive than standard CD-R's.

A turntable capable of self -pre-amplifying it's output to a usable Line Level; or a standard TT routed through a receiver with a Phono Preamp will create the audio signal that the recorder would record.

Pause/resume function in analogue, manual recording mode


This player has essentially the same guts as my Pioneer PDR-509, so this is what it means...

'Repair' means the player lost power in mid-recording without commiting the track memory to a table of contents. It would likely take up to 40 minutes for the player to reconstruct it from the disk.

There is NO reason the player need be turned off (if that's where it took you) for a track pause.

Just press Pause, flip the LP over and hit Play or Pause again when you wish to continue recording.

Perhaps you don't know how to Finalize the disc either. It's not that intuitive. Press Finalize, after a while it will display a time, like 4:07. That means how long it will take to do the operation. Now press Pause and it will count down to 0:00 and be done. Then you can play it on any other CD player.

HHB burn it...I record on coaxial from Tascam DAT. 1st five tracks are great but the 6th track sounds horrible like there is a scratchy sounding distorted delay. It does this every once in the while . What...


I had this happen a lot on my Pioneer PDR-509, which is pretty much the same machine, when using marginal mongrel-brand CDR's. It's annoying but I have seen nothing to explain or detect it in real time so something can be re-recorded.

I press the shutter button a red light flashes in the viewfinder


Your focus or lighting is too low for the picture. Add more light, and hold the button down half way to self adjust to see if it goes away. Change the battery to a lithium battery, which helps the digital cameras work their best.
Let me know if this helps.
