Question about Philips CDR760 CD Player

Open Question

My CDR760 is a CD Recorder-I'm not able to record anymore

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

    this unit has been working fine with colored discs, but recently it started flashing the "OPC failure" with colored discs. The unit still works fine with standard discs. Could this be a result of reduced power from the write laser?

    Same thing -- Will no longer record on any of several brands of MUSIC cd's and displays "OPCFAIL" -- Passes the self test -- Still plays cd's as always -- Does anyone know how to start a repair process?

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

SOURCE: cd recorder problem

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...

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

My 760 recorder keeps show no audio when I try to record. I've tried hooking it up serval ways no luck. However it plays perfect.


You can not use normal Data CDs. Use CD-R Digital Audio CDs or CD-R Audio recordable CDs. If you use correct Digital Audio Recordable CDs, it will show OPC. Once you press Recording, audio out is coming. Otherwise you can not listing to audio. Please read manual carefully. Above will solve your matter.

Try adjusting the input level so the meter stays close to 0 when recording. It sounds like the levels are too hot.

Could be the dvd player/lens. The player sucks up dust through the
player's caddy and after a while it won't read discs anymore.
A cd cleaner or a good (gently dosed) blow with compressed air might help.
