Question about Yamaha CDR-D651 2-Disc CD Recorder

Problem with analog recording on Yamaha CDR D651

Hello,
I have had the Yamaha CDR D651 for a few years with no problem,
however now if I try to record an LP in the analog recording position
one side is not coming in.
It works fine recording a CD from side A to side B.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Lance

    Hello and thanks for the interest.

    Yes I used this unit for years and worked perfectly for recording vinyls.

    I also tied swapping the left and right cables and tried recording from a casstte deck...both with the same results.

    I must be an internal problem.

    Thanks,

    Lance

    Thanks Dunnbiker,

    Earlier today I had the left side registering no signal.

    Before trying it again I did rotate that knob

    (I had done it in the past with no succsess)

    Now it seems to be working fine.

    Would it be a fairly safe assumption that the record volume knob could be the culprit?

    Should I try tuner cleaner?

    Did it ever work? Are we blaming the CDR for an external problem? What happens if you record something else that's analog?



    Does the turntable otherwise play okay? Maybe we should establish that first. Swap the cables Left-to-Right and see what happens.



    Isolate and come back.

Your assessment that it duplicates CD's internally fits with an analog-only failure mode. Let's make sure the signal is getting past your RCA jacks on the deck...

Put the deck in a Rec/Standby mode and make sure an analog source registers adequate volume on the meters. If it's good there and doesn't change with cable swapping between the input channels, you're right, the problem is internal. Maybe the volume potentiometer itself has developed a dead spot. Manually rotate it throughout its range many times to wipe it clean.

If you have an external optical digital source use it to check the meters in digital recording mode to be sure they're about even. The same knob affects analog and digital levels.

If you have the deck connected via the traditional Tape Monitor circuit in a receiver you should be able to tell by ear if the one channel is dead or too low. This puts all of the recording circuitry including the volume knob in line with your receiver.

    Yes, maybe tuner cleaner, assuming you can gain access. The other advice I gave might still come in handy for the next time you have trouble.

you probably have regular cd-r disks that cannot be recorded on in this unit. You can only use disks marked "DIGITAL AUDIO" for recording

Phillips cdr 200 recorder, just recorded 13 tracks with time left over on sony brand recordable cds for music. i switched from analog to digital to finalize and it took 4 mins however RECORDABLE still...


It sounds like it didn't truly finalize. Try finalizing it again since the 'recordable' status implies it still qualifies. You have to press RECORD immediately after FINALIZE.

The Philips directory lists a few CDR200 models but the documentation contains directiosn for CDR765.

http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/c/

for example...
http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/c/cdr200bk/cdr200bk_dfu_aen.pdf

If for some reason you ever want or need to extract music from a non-finalized CDR or CDR-W, try loading it into a standard DVD player. Without a TOC the player won't be able to display track info or navigate to individual tracks but it MAY play it straight through anyway and you could digitally capture all or part of the output on another CDR. Just be aware that if the original is rewriteable and has old data beyond the new data you will crash into it without warning at the end of the new data, so be ready to pause your copy at the appropriate time.

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.

Cd not recording


Be sure to "finalize" the recorded cd before use in another cd player. Another thing is there are always a few bad discs in a spindle of blank discs... And sometimes you will get "check disc" or "bad disc" when a blank disc is inserted. I would be sure to use blank discs for audio use, not computer use, with your Yamaha.
