Re: marantz630

What does it do or not do? Does it read the blank properly? If it does and comes up as ready to record you need to check the inputs first and work forward from there. If it comes up with No Disc error or OPC error you may want to buy some different media to see if that solves the problem. We have three of these beasts and they seem to be particular about the media used.Our best luck has been with Memorex and Maxell.

This machine needs 1x or 2x media upto max 12x - faster types use different dyes that older lasers can't burn. Getting harder to find them but HHB still make some or you can use 'audio' cdr's.

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.

When recording disk reads repair


Because the disc was left in the unit after recording and the power plug was unplugged later, the track number and

recording time data have been cleared without being recorded on the disc.

While "REPAIR" is displayed, the track number and recording time data are repaired by tracking the recorded area. Further

recording or finalization is possible when the display returns to the previous condition. Tracking the recorded area takes about 40 minutes if the disc has been fully recorded.

That's a normal response to an interrupted Finalization.

The recorder was switched off/unplugged after recording without ejecting the disc. The recorder could not write essential recording information onto the disc.

While REPAIR is displayed, the recorder automatically examines the recorded area of the disc and updates the track numbers and recording time data. This process takes about 40 minutes for a fully recorded disc. Finalization or further recording is possible once the REPAIR message disappears.

It wont record all my cd tracks, its starts

Sounds more like it won't record ANY of your CD tracks. Is there any indication why? Are you sure it has audio coming in? Many CD recorders will automatically stop recording if they sense extended silence.

Philips CD recorder CDR870 not recording

Consumer CD recorders require CD-Audio or CD-Music blank CD's to record.

Invalid disc prompt,whenever i install a disc

This is a dedicated audio recorder. Therefore, you must use dedicated audio discs (not data discs). You can tell the difference as audio discs specify the recording time (usually 80mins) instead of data capacity (usually 700MB).

When you have the right disc inserted, press the record button & it will go into record standby, ready to record. First, set a level, then press record again, and you are recording.

Does not record

Have you selected the correct input? These recorders are desinged to stop after 20 seconds of silence. Do you get any level showing on the record level meters? Press the source button until it shows 'analogue' if recording to the 2 phono inputs.

It will record any line level source (CD, MD, tape, tuner). You can only record vinyl records if you have a phono pre-amp.

The best way to use a CD recorder is to use the "tape loop" on your amp/receiver. Does your amp/receiver have a "tape in" and a "tape out"? If it does you should connect your CD recorder to these in/outputs. That way, whatever your amp or receiver is set to listen to, is what you'll be recording.

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...
