    Thank you Johnny rebel fir your reply. But that's actually not the case. Up until last week I could still listen to disc in same drive before finalizing and it just quit all of the sudden. I think somehow the laser went bad (if that's possible) I accidentally left it on rec/pause for an extended period of time, about two days and it just quit recording altogether.

SOURCE: won't record

I've just spoken to a friend who also has one of these older Philips recorders & he has the same problem.

As per my previous post, he fixed his problem by locating old stocks of blanks. New audio discs seem to have been manufactured & optimised for fast writing speeds (up to 32x speed) & this is causing the problem (you can't write at x1 or x2 speed to these new speedy discs).

Trying a few different brands of discs to try out is a whole lot cheaper than a repair. I suggest when you find a brand that works, you stock up on these discs as it seems they will become ever rarer.

Good luck!

SOURCE: problem with analog recording on Yamaha CDR D651

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.

SOURCE: LG ADR 620,Won`t record or play.

Mine keeps doing this. It isn't a disc compatibility problem. I find if I switch the machine off completely for about half an hour and then switch it back on the problem fixes itself.

SOURCE: Hi. My Philips CD Recorder CDR

The Unit turns itself off automatically after a few (variable) time when simply reading a CD and also when burning, then after 1 or 2 seconds it turns on and goes automatically in stand by mode. Any solution? Thanks.

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.

Does anyoe know how to record from LP to cd?


Use your tape out, or another line out signal from your preamp.... if possible - OR Sometimes you can pull out some connectors on the back of your amp (a Metal joint kindathing ;), to break signalpath between preamp and poweramp if its an integrated amp -
Use preamp out signal to feed your cdr ( Main purpose is to equalize out, the RIAA correction on a record)
Have you tried to google your question ? Lots of fine guides out there!!!

Try NOT to push record and play at the same time. Just record. It will detect analog on its own.

Recorded finalized CD's will not play on standard CD player


Are you using the same brand of discs you used to? Do they palyback on the machine in both the record and the playback deck? Do your old cdr's you recorded still play in the standard cd player? You can try the diagnostics - hold down the 'play' and 'fwd' keys on the record side as you power it on.

Philips cdr 765


I just purchased one from Ebay. It plays fine on both sides. The recorder will recognize CDR's and the display will say recordable media. But, when I attempt to actually record, it won't work. I have another unit exactly like this one and the CD's I have work fine with that unit. I'm guessing this unit's recorder is bad? Any suggestions? Thanks.
