After i have finish recording and i am finalizing the the cd code OPC appears on the screen, and being finalize the cannot play in other cd player why?

OPC means the unit had trouble Optical Processing Calibration, which means the disc surface may be damaged. Using brand name media and being careful to not touch the recording surface would help.

It's not completing the finalization so it won't play in a CD player yet.

It's mostly in the manual

OPC: Stands for Optical Processing Calibration.

When you see this message in the Information

Display for the Record DeckK, it means

that the laser transport inside the unit is making

the calibrations and adjustments needed so that

the recording process is optimized for the specific
disc in use.

When an unfinalized CD-R or CD-RW disc is

placed in the Record Deck%, the letters

OPCwill flash once the Table of Contents has

been read. This indicates that the unit is optimizing

its circuits for maximum compatibility with

the specific recordable disc in use. the number

and total running time of any tracks that have

already been recorded will appear in the

Information DisplayK, and the appropriate

indicator SPwill light to tell you if a CD-R or
CD-RW disc is in use.

To Finalize a disc, place it in the Record

Drawer%. Once the disc's Table of Contents

information has been read and the OPC process

has been completed, press the Finalize button

E@and note that the Finalize Indicator

Uwill begin to flash. Within three seconds,

press the Select button9*and note that

the Finalize IndicatorUwill stop flashing.

The Finalization process will take up to two

minutes, depending on the length of material

recorded on the disc. During the Finalization

process the Record Deck will not accept any
operating commands.

How do you finalize a cd

With the CD stopped press FINALIZE. The display will show FINALIZE CD and PRESS RECORD.

Do as instructed. It will say XX XX FINAL and will count down the time remaining to finish the finalization process.

CDs skip


Ok, it sound to me that the laser lens which actually reads the cd's has some dirt particles on it.

There is a very cheap method of solving this problem.
Just go to any cd shop and buy yourself a decent laser lens cleaner disc, follow the instructions and you should be set.

Kind regards

Unlocking Pioneer DV-410V region code

I remember that particular one yes, he emailed me the final solution to the problem. Below is the excerpt of his email to me. After doing the steps below it worked. If it does not in your case message me back. You are using the supposed multiregion DVD player that isnt multiregion when you buy it right?

"thru parental lock/password then it wanted me to enter a new country code of 4 digits so i decided to try 0000. it only let me enter one 0 but i closed the menu button"

CD Player problem

Most DVD players that would not play a disc even with a known good disc inside signifies that the llaser eye/lens is not reading the disc. This could probably be attributed to:
1. dirty, damaged, inverted, blank, un-finalized burned CDs or DVDs;
2. defective, weak, dirty/dusty burned-out laser eye/lens;
3. dirty, dried up lubrication of the slider shafting (where the laser eye's carriage moves) or some other components; and/or
4. dirty, dried up lubrication, defective spindle motor.

A few things you can try:
1. Use a CD cleaner (readily available from most computer shops);
2. use a can of compressed air and blow through the inside of the loaded disc area;
3. gently tap on the top cover where you estimate the reading/laser eye/lens would be;
4. gently press on the tray door once the disc is loaded;
5. relube, clean as necessary

Should this not be corrective, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional such as those in a Service Center. Alternately, your friendly neighborhood electronic shop should do just fine.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kindest regards.
