Question about Pioneer PD-R509 CD Recorder
Whilst finalizing a CD-RW (4:21 timescale) it stopped @ 2:47. Managed to extract the disc by opening up the machine - but oupon re-powering (many times) the display still reads 'Resume' TOC 2:51 in the display - all keys being inoperable - as before. A service manual is available from HiFiEngine - free - and I get an error code 83330000? - but looks like the unit needs to be put into Test Mode -- which method isn't clear in the manual - or somehow clear the data in a/the microprocessor - so it 'thinks' there isn't a disc to finish finalizing. Any ideas??!!

hello poopig1, after further review, I meant to describe this: look for a pinhole in the area of the CD tray to insert a pin...similar to the same pinhole you see on a PC's cd player to eject the tray manually. If there is none, then try this: Open the cover and find the motor that, when turning, performs the tray ejection. Then, turn that motor by hand until the entire tray (or cartridge) is ejected. Then power up and observe the events.

You need to get the disc out. First try leaving it disconnected for a few days, then try holding eject as you power up, then try manually gently pulling the drawer open when powered off. The test mode on this unit needs an internal jumper shorting to activate not just a key sequence. Dissassembly is fairly straightforward to get the disc out, I have the service manual should you need it,

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!)
