Question about Philips CDR760 CD Player
I bought this unit in 1998- love it! -recorded live jam sessions- a couple of months ago-It would not record anymore-I'd put the CD-R (speced) in - I'd here a lot of data crakel then it would flash-"OPCFAIL" which means laser power calibration failed-Is this repairable?-if so(I hope) where can I get it done?-I paid $300 in 98-so I'd really like to get it working rather than spend 700 today
model-CDR760 BK02 serial # 17089137
SOURCE: Recording Errors
sounds funny but ive got the exact same problem with the same machine but by the sounds of it philips aint that good for recording from a cd form from that model anyway!!
theres an old skool mix that i wana put out, but it will only play back on the recorder not on another source, ive managed to open the file up with nero show time on the pc thou and it will also play but just cant manage to convert to mp3 as the file is a wpl or something...
well annoying if you ask me
hpe thats helped a bit

I have a Phillips 775 CD Recorder, and can only get it to record using Maxell CD-R Music Pro brand blank discs. They usually come in packs of 10 and are in full-size jewel cases. Haven't bought any in awhile and am not sure about availability.Hope this helps.

SOURCE: won't record
i just got this horrible cdr 785 from ebay, before then i had got me self a whole bulk of recordable cd only to find out that they are NOT compactible , oh what a shame, i tried several different ones but none of them got it worked. POSSIBLE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM. thank God i've found the right cd for this product eventually. if you are having problems with this unit rejecting cd for your recordings THEN plea se try these Two, ....FUJI CD -R PRO 80min FOR AUDIO and VERBATIM MUSIC CD-R 80min, you can find this from A POUND SHOPS. These are cd - recordable for use with Audio recorders. it worked for me hope it work for you CHEER FELLAS

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.
Is this brand new to you (never worked) or did this problem appear suddenly? Did you just change brands of blank discs?
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 Google Optimum Power Calibration for more informstion on that function.

Testimonial: "Your suggestion worked! I had purchased a different brand of CD blanks...bought some SONY CD-R Music discs that work great! Thanks a million! "
SOURCE: I have a philips
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.
"I don't buy expensive blanks. I buy modest quality blanks and watch
for sales so that I can them for about a dime a piece after the rebate
check comes in. 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
an interesting workaround:
"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 "
