Question about Pioneer PD-R555RW CD Recorder

Disc does not spin

Recently bought pdr 555 and seller said it worked just before shipment. When blank disc is inserted, the pdr flashes different CD modes for about a minute then says "check disk". The disk is not spinning. The electronics (amplifier) seems to be working and there is output on the earphone jack with an analogue input.

Please check my tip "Repair for failure to recognize any type of CD for the Pioneer PD-R555RW" in the Tips & Tricks section. It is a hardware repair for apparent failing capacitors, and fixed a problem like this for me.

First do a lens celeanup, just in case.If it does not work It may be the motor. But before opening it I suggest to check if it is under guarantee.

    If the cd does not spin at all, not even when you just close the tray with a cd on it, then is likely to be a motor related problem, then you need to open and test it. If it spins but cannot read disk then may be a lens problem, easiest mainainance you can do in this case is cleang them.

I have a Pioneer PDR 609 CD recorder. I put a disc in and it says Pro disc din unlock.


This is nearly always due to cable problems. I think the cheaper optical cables can get 'kinked' quite easily, which would stop the signal coming through properly. So, first check your settings to make sure the correct cable type has been selected. If that's OK, try replacing the cable with a good quality one.

My Pioneer PDR 555-RW keeps reading Mon1 or Moni when I try to record my CD from my mixing board. I need to send this wedding music, and it is trapped in my board. HELP!


That's just a MONITOR indication. It means you can SEE the audio from the selected input on the record level meters for adjustment or other reasons. It won't prevent you from recording. Set your levels then hit RECORD, let it set itself up and calibrate to the disc, start your source and hit Play or Pause to start recording to the disc.

Nec dvd+-rw nd-6650a stop burning dvds


It's time to replace the defective (and probably warranty-expired) unit.

If your computer is a notebook, not a desktop, it's best to take the computer to a qualified technician, to disassemble your computer, and replace the drive.

Sony VGC RB53 wont recognize blank writeable cd/dvd's


Insert a blank CD, try to burn something on to the disk, if that is successfully done than the CD drive is fine, unless you have a problem. Sometimes blank discs don't show up with direct click.

Wont record on blank pc disks!


I had the same problem and found that I was using the wrong type of CDs. If you look on the CD you have to use the CD that says Compact disc digital audio Recordable or Compact disc digital audio Rewrittable. After I used the Digital ones I could record on it. I then tried the CD on the PC and it worked. You can look on the top of the unit and see the information if you still have it. Hope this helps you.

You're probably right to suspect the motor, since its not spinning, and the lens is clean. I recently had a "no disc" error that was fixed by general mechanic maintnance- taking apart the lens mechanism, cleaning, oiling and putting back together. If youre lucky it could also be your problem, and it should be a minimum repair fee. Good luck
