Hi, please read this link: http://www.fixya.com/support/t8055461-philips
if you have been using your old media and this happened with new media the problem is the record speed of new disk. if you are using the same old media maybe your recorder needs an OPU cleaning.

I just install a new opc belt in a xante colourlaser 1200 printer, it still say install opc belt.


You probably need to go into the menu structure and find the resets menu. It could be under machine info or maintenance. When you have found the reset menu or parts life, you should be able to reset the OPC Belt.

I have a Phillps 870 CD rcorder. Have been using TDK Music CD-RW, 4x, 700mb discs. Just bought new discs from same manufacturer and sames epcs but get OPC FAILED message


Welcome to Fixya.

OPC stands for Optimum Power Calibration. basically, it's a small test to write on the media and read it back for self calibration of the laser power.

I'd try different blank discs to see if it's sensitive to some. Of course they recommend only Philips brand but most major brands should work. Sometimes the "times x" recording rating needs to be higher or lower.

You can also try to turn unit on at least 30 minutes or more before use (this seems to work best for me)

The bottom line is that certain media and certain writers just don't get along, so there are no permanent "Fix" for this issue as every CD recording device encounters such once in a while.

Here's an excerpt from one of the tech members who experienced this problem :

"If I have an OPC Fail message, I try another blank. If
I find that they consistently fail (about half a buck wasted) I move
the stack over to the computer (which seems to work fine with these)
and buy another stack of blanks of a different brand next time I see a
good price..."

Hope this helps, Thanks for using Fixya.

I have a philips audio recorder cdr 760 When i try to record cd rw a blank audio tdk cd the machine said OPC FAIL What I have to do to record the cd rw on my Philips cdr 760 Thanks for your...


There are a lot of forums which discuss OPC failure and it strikes every hardware maker and brand of media.

The bottom line is that certain media and certain writers just don't get along.

"CDRW 5000 work around for OPC FAIL
Here's a work around for OPC FAIL on cdrw 5000 -

method 1: turn unit on at least 30 minutes or more before use (this seems to work best for me)

method 2: run OPC on an old cd that always works - after OPC passes, remove old cd and insert new CD (you only get 99 OPC runs per disc)

-or use a combination of the two methods

I've always used TDK and I recently bought a new batch and they stopped working. The old ones still work everytime. I don't know enough about the system to guess what the difference is.

side note: CDRW 2000 will finalise discs from the cdrw 5000 but not the other way around.

Hope that helps "

I have a MFC-9420 CN that is giving me an "unable to print message" after I cleared a paper jam. I have turned it off and on several times, as that is the only help the user guide gives. I've read...


To reset on this machine you press the 3 and 9 together and scroll thru the options to reset. Unable to print without an error code doesn't tell me where your error might be.

Problems sending. the paper starts to go thru then stops and prints out an error message


Try turning the machine off and on again.. it sounds like a memory problem..

If that fails give the fax a good blow in where the paper goes in.

OPC belt has 78% left -cant rid the problem


Look at the OPC belt edges, there's a shiny spot that passes thru a sensor, a can of air should blow out the sensor, carefully! When the sensor can't see the timing spot you get that error. You may have to replace the OPC since companies are imbedding a chip that tells the machine when they're used up.
