Re: Open close door not working

Nope. Does the red light come on on the front of the unit?It should then startup saying 'philips recorder'scrolling across the display. When you press to open it should click and say'open'on the screen. If it just says 'open' with no whirring or tray opening you can try a service mode test. If it displays 'locked'it's set to dealer mode that can be removed.

Our church has a Phillips 760 cd recorder. We bought it slightly used ( or so we were told) and at first it was ok... Finicky with usable CDs, but ok. But now after a few months of use, it will start to...

try buying optical clean for the cd play run it few time before you do any thing else, make sure you buy one that has media disc cleaning fluid. put few drop of liquid on each pad push play, fast forward, stop reverse forward, stop few times, let it run until it stops. you mite find it at walmart but you may have to go dvd or record store, radio shack may also have it

thank you rod

Denon CD player DCD 920. When using the open/close button once, the CD-door opens but when it is open, without any waiting time, it immediately closes again. If i operate manually the open/close switch on...

Off the power, and plug off the switch, and try opening it manually. DO NOT force open it. I don't think it would close back since it has no electricity already.

• To switch off the Auto Track function you have to enter
Menu mode.
If you wish to increase track numbers manually, press
TRACK INCR(ement) on the remote control. For further
instructions see Menu mode.
ON (AUTO): The track increments are automatically taken over
from the digital source material or after 2.7
seconds silence during analog recording.
OFF (MANUAL): While recording track numbers can be
incremented manually by pressing TRACK
INCR(ement) on the remote control.
(Minimum track length is 4 sec.) (This can
also be done in Auto track ON mode.)

Laser is malfunctioning on my Marantz CD Recordable DR6000

the laser in your DR-6000 is exactly the same as what's in the philips cdr-775 and cd-r-770.
a brand new laser for these are very hard to get hold of and are very expensive. personally i would look out for the above philips models on ebay for less money then take the whole mechanism out and unscrew the servo board and then fit the marantz servo board in place of it and fit it back into your recorder.
i have done this on numerous occasions with no problems.

hope this helps.

CDR is not working

have a look on ebay for a cheap working donor recorder as spares are very expensive and very hard to get hold of.
i'm guessing your recorder either doesn't read discs, or it won't eject? which is very common and means either the servo board is faulty or the laser.

The following recorders i know off hand for a donor mechanism are:


if it proves to be just a faulty laser, all 3 of the above have the same laser unit.
if it proves to be a faulty servo board, all 3 have the same servo boards except if you fit one out of a philips model it will show 'PHILIPS CD RECORDER' on the display at power up but will still work nontheless.
obviously if a marantz is found it will show 'MARANTZ CD RECORDER' as normal.

hope this helps.

Wrong disc

Some audio cd's work better than others. I have experienced some problems with the Maxell brand so I switched brands. It can be quirky. Sometimes you get a bad lot of discs. I have had no problems since that bad lot of discs.
