Why do I get OPC error when trying to record on aCDRW ON a philips cdr 785

Common issue. The lasers/transports in these are terribly unreliable.
More of these hit repair stores and skips than pints of beer down a football thugs throat.
cut your time and loses and invest in one from any brand other than Philips. pioneer and Yamaha make exceedingly good CD-R recorders for the home user. Hhb, marantz, fostex for the pro market

Hi.I have CD Recorder Marantz DR6000.After reading and initalizing blank CD-R Audio next on display show OPC ERROR.It,s reading all audio CD,s,oryginal,and CD-R.When I wanna finalized old CD-R,recorded by...

DR-6000 only accepts CD-R audio or CD-R music discs, not the standard CD-R discs. the difference is that the audio and music discs have the OPC formatted differently and they cost a bit more because they include the royalties fee. Standard CD-R discs won't work in this recorder. The correct discs have compact disc "digital audio" logo on them.

The manual states that 74 minute 650MB 1-4X disks run best; my machine would not burn anything I had, eventually I found 650MB crrw's on ebay for as cheap as 2 cents a piece, I have a fair number of them and so far every single one has worked. Imation 800Mb cd's seem to work 80% for me.

laser failure on the recording side is very common on marantz and philips cd recorders.
they're well known for it.
so it's most definately the laser in your case.

how would I go about fixing the lazer problem with this issue of OPC Error when I push record. Sometimes when I use a lens cleaner, it will records some cds and then the error shows up again. Any help, Thanks

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.
