Question about Pioneer PD-R555RW CD Recorder

2 Answers

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.

My pioneer pdr-509 starts recording for about 5 to 10 seconds then stops and says repair, and it will play that back, and it will let me finalize that to.I am using sony cd-r for music, i bought some air...


Such problem is a result of a dirt's on the lens area. Try to insert a lens cleaning disc to the drive and have it played for at least 5 minutes. Repeat the cleaning process and check if the problem has been fixed.

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.

My problem is when i record it show pro dish


Do you mean "pro disc?". Home CD Recorders are limited to recording on CD-Audio or CD-Music blank media. CD-R's are considered 'pro'. Get the right media.

Hi can i record on my pioneer pdr 609 cd without using the remote control,as ive purchased a unit with out one and cant get it to record, thanks


Hi John
You should be able to record without the remote control; make sure you have a blank disc in place, then press the 'RECORD' button on the front; it should go into recording standby mode. When you want to start recording, press the button below the REC BALANCE buttons (the play/pause button, marked with a triangle and a II symbol) and this should get you going.
Try it and get back to me if not.
Hope it works!

Can't get it to record


I experienced this problem a long time ago, i believe that it was because i tried to use a normal data cd-rw but the unit only reads audio discs. It has to be a cd-rw for audio only (will say cd-rw audio on the disc, whereas if it is a data disc it will simply say cd-rw.) Hope this helps..

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.

This unit, if it has been moved recently, could have had the laser lens fall out. If thats not the case, open the unit and clean the lens, and while it is open insert a disc and see if the disc spins up to full speed, as the spindle motor is very popular to go bad in these units. Good Luck

Pioneer PDR-W839 Jammed Disc Changer (previously posted)


hello poopig1, after further review, I meant to describe this: look for a pinhole in the area of the CD tray to insert a pin...similar to the same pinhole you see on a PC's cd player to eject the tray manually. If there is none, then try this: Open the cover and find the motor that, when turning, performs the tray ejection. Then, turn that motor by hand until the entire tray (or cartridge) is ejected. Then power up and observe the events.
