Cdr775 New !!!

I have had this unit for several years but now I want to use it to make and preserve some records and 8 track cassettes for my wife. I would like to know if I can made a CD recording from the headphone jack on the old RCA stereo unit direct to my new Philips CDR775 ?

I see " PLEASE ENTER A VALID PRODUCT" at the bottom of this form. The numbers on the back of the Philips unit are CDR775/17.

    I don't understand how to use a microphone to record stereo from a 8 Track Player as well as a phonograph. Do you propose to attach the microphone to the CDR775 ?
    Thanks !!!

    I want to connect from the headphone jack on the stereo to my Philips CDR775/17. Willthis work ?

  • aggrivated Feb 22, 2008

    On the back of my RCA Stereo Console are a group of tape IN and tape OUT jacks. Can I use the tape out jack to record some 8 track tapes to my CD recorder, and can I use the headphone jack on the RCA unit to record both the tapes and phonograph records ? I can monitot both with the headphones.

Hi,

Just buy a microphone connect it to the player to record.
You will also need a headphone to hear.But there are few headphones which also have a mic with them so you don't need to buy a microphone seperately.
Ex: in a walkman you only have a headphone to hear where as in some headphone's you have a mic cum headphone..

So if you buy this headphone cum mike you will have two jacks one will be green and the other will be pink or orange.You can connect them to the player as well.

Goodluck..

    You need to run a cable with jack plug going into your old recorder heaphones output

    Sure, using tape out is much better than using your headphone plug

  • Ginko
    Ginko Feb 22, 2008

    on the other end you should connect it to the audio in plugs in your cdr

    Here are the manuals for cdr, but I am afraid the English one was not working. If you want give it a try

    Resuming:

    If you can use tape out from RCA unit into audio in at the back of CDR.

    otherwise use headphones jack from RCA into audio in on CDR



    Finally, if you do not have alternative use headphones out from RCA into ext. mic. plug on CDR, but this may not work properly

    Ginko Feb 22, 2008

    I suggest you not to monitor it connecting headphones in the middle of this. Better to monitor it listening to cdr audio out or headphones from cdr while recording

    I gotta go now. Hope my posts had been helpful, if so do not forget to give me positive rating.



    Many thanks

I consistantly get an update message after trying to record disc to disc as little as one track why?


That is best discussed with the Philips support people as there could be a reset procedure. I have never heard of this but you may have caused the unit to enter a different mode by doing an overburn attempt.

The righthand (player) side of my Phiips CDR775 will play cds that I have recorded but will no longer play originals. I have used a cd lens cleaner but problem remains.


It may need a better cleaning by a professional as well as some lubrication at points in the unit. This is a job for a Technician.

I have a Phillips CDR 775 2 -disc cd recorder and my track time is automatically set to 20 seconds. How do I increase this time per track? Also, I cannot seem to get the auto track to work when...


It's all in the manual...

20 seconds is the amount of digital 'silence' the machine will let pass during recording before it marks a new track. t will Pause and wait one minute for a digital signal to resume. (Page 21)

On digital copying it will automatically increment track numbers as the source advances.

For analog sources you should switch Auto Track to OFF and manually press Track as applicable. (Page 28)

Need user manual


I have the CDR-200 and did not have the manual either. However, I did discover the same problem and found the solution. There is a "confirm" button on the front of the unit under the display area. After you press the record button "Record" will begin to flash in the display area and then you press "Confirm". It should start recording. Note however the following:

BURNING FROM EXTERNAL CASSETTE OR PHONO
Before starting this procedure make sure you have an AUDIO recording CD in the RECORDER tray of the CDR-200. A regular CD-R type of disc for computers is not going to work and may cause an annoying message on the display which does not go away until you put the right type of recording CD in the unit. It must be either an AUDIO CD-R or an AUDIO CD/RW.

1. When copying from an external cassette deck, you should set the source (press source button) until the setting is "Analog".

2. The "Dual" button should not be in effect. In the lower right portion of the screen you should only see a small number "1" with a circle around it. This indicates the CDs currently being used by the burner. In "dual" mode you can copy from the Playback CD of the CDR-200 to the Recorder CD. In dual mode you see "1" and "2" with circles around them. The active CD tray will flash on the display.

3. When copying from an external cassette unit, you use the "Record" button to start the recording. At the end of the cassette track you MUST press the STOP button by the CD Recorder tray. After you press STOP the unit will say "Update" which indicates it is closing out the track on the CD-R. You can continue to write tracks by pressing RECORD again, then CONFIRM when the tape is positioned at the right PLAYBACK track. It is usually helpful to have a few seconds of blank tape at the start of the PLAYBACK track before pressing RECORD. Press play on the cassette deck, then RECORD followed by CONFIRM on the CD burner.

4. When the track has finished burning you must press STOP to close the track on the CD-R. After you press STOP, the unit will display "Update" to indicate it is updating or closing the track. When the process completes, the unit will display the tracks it has written to the CD-R and will be ready for you to copy another track or FINALIZE the CD-R. When the unit is waiting after the STOP, you can change the cassette tape, reposition to a playback track and ready the playback tape for more recording. When the PLAYBACK tape is ready repeat STEP 3. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you have about 14 or 15 tracks on the CD-R.

5. When you have finished recording about 14 or 15 tracks onto the CD-R, you will want to finalize the CD-R. Press the FINALIZE button, and then press the CONFIRM button. You will see the the unit start to display the progress of the finalize by advancing the level meters of the left and right channels in the display. When the unit is finished finalizing it will return to the number of tracks display for the CD-R. After finalizing the CD-R you can play it back to make sure the burn was successful. Be sure to wait for the tracks display before removing or playing the CD-R after the finalize is done. Removing before the finalize is done may damage the unit and may render the CD-R bad.

BURNING FROM THE PLAYBACK CD
Before starting this procedure make sure you have an AUDIO recording CD in the RECORDER tray of the CDR-200. A regular CD-R type of disc for computers is not going to work and may cause an annoying message on the display which does not go away until you put the right type of recording CD in the unit. It must be either an AUDIO CD-R or an AUDIO CD/RW.

1. Set the unit to "Dual" mode. As described above, you will see "1" and "2" with small circles in the lower right portion of the display.

2. Make sure the "Source" mode is set to "Analog" by repeatedly pressing the SOURCE button until it shows "Analog".
3. When copying from the PLAYBACK CD tray you will not use the RECORD button by the CD Burner tray. You will use the 'DUB" button just to the right of the display.

4. Put an audio CD in the PLAYBACK CD tray and press the skip track button ">>" until you arrive at the track you wish to record from. If the track you want to start at is track 1, then you don't need to skip tracks.

5. When positioned at the correct playback track, press the DUB button. The unit will show "CDR" and then "DUB" on the display. When it says "DUB" press the CONFIRM button. The unit will start recording. You can adjust the record level during the first few seconds to make sure you don't have the recording volume level set too high.

6. When the track is finished, you should see the unit indicate on the display "Update". This indicates it is closing the track and it should do this automatically. If it does not do this you may have to press STOP near the RECORDER Tray to force closing of the track. Usually the unit indicates "AUTO" in the display area and I believe that is what controls the automatic track numbering feature. I am not sure how the AUTO feature is turned on. I noticed on the CDR-200 it is on by default.

7. After the UPDATE is complete, the unit will display the number of tracks it has written to the CD-R. You can at this point change the PLAYBACK CD to another one or advance to another track for continued recording. When at the correct track simply go back to step 5 and continue.

8. When you are all done copying tracks from one or more CDs, and you wish to finalize the CD press FINALIZE and then press CONFIRM to start the finalize process. I noticed on the CDR-200 if you wait too long after recording a track the unit may start the finalize process automatically. This happened after at least 5 minutes. It is best to try and stay with the copy process to monitor what is happening. The finalize can also start if you have written to many tracks to the CD-R and it runs out of space. Typically, your safe if you burn about 14 to 15 tracks to a CD-R at a time. You might be able to fit more if the tracks are very short (2-3 minutes each).

One last note about the connections on the back of the unit. Read the labels of the connections on the back very carefully. The CDR-200 and probably the 201 have separate outputs for the PLAYBACK CD (CD) and BURNER CD (CDR). You will want to connect these to seperate inputs on your audio amplifier. Or you might also wish to merge them using adapters into one input on your audio amplifier. If you keep them separate you will need to change sources on the audio amplifier to hear each tray. For example, you might need to switch to "CD/TAPE" for the CD, and "AUX" for the CDR. It is probably easier to merge the two using audio adapters which can be readily obtained from RadioShack.

I hope this helps!
