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
Might be the PCA aka power calibration area portion of the lens that reads that might not be reading it. Here is a little bit more info on PCA. Power Calibration Area of a recordable or rewritable disc that precedes lead-in and the PMA, where the optimum laser power level for writing can be determined by a recording drive

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...

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.

My Phillips 775 CD recorder will now only record with Maxell CD-R Music Pro brand discs. They might still be availabvle at Wal-Mart - they are usually in a bulk pack and are in full-size jewel cases. Don't know if that'll solve your problem. If you buy that brand of discs and they don't help, I'll buy them from you...

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
