Question about Denon DN-C550R 2-Disc CD Recorder

1 Answer

I Keep getting the message: "dig. unlock" when I go to record a CD

This just came up suddenly today, and on the front panel above the words, a little padlock starts blinking. I recorded on the CD player just fine two nights ago, and haven't touched it since. I have never seen this "dig unlock" before, and am not aware of how I could have locked anything.

How do I unlock it?

Here is what I grabbed from the manual.
The message Dig.Unlock Means:
"There is an incomplete connection of the digital input jack during
digital input recording, or the input signal is not being input properly
due to some other factor."

    I also have a solution to your problem. You can could take 2 xlr cables and connect it to the main outputs of a mixer and feed it through there (the input is analog:XLR or analog balanced in) Or if you have a mixer that can take quarter inches, then you can can get a cable that goes from 2 quarter inches to RCA (the red/white cable you usually find with a yellow cable in most video game consoles) this option is called analog unbalanced (or is displayed as just Analog on the side). If you have any questions on how to set up your rig. email me at darkslater@live.com
    (it would help to send me pics of your rig and the inputs at the back)

Imei 355376042089636 how code unlock


I think there are several other possible solutions for the Philips CDR870 which will make it record more reliably, although using the "proper" Music Disc and cleaning the laser lens (try some denatured alcohol on a cotton swab; then dry the lens with the other end) seem to be the best ideas. Also, if you're willing to "go inside", try gently vacuuming the inside of the unit to remove possible dust problems. Turn the power off first!

Another possible solution is to let the unit "warm up" for about a half hour prior to recording, this changes some parameter in the unit to reduce the "OPCFAIL" problem. You might also try cycling through "Input Source" by repeatedly toggling the Input Button (19) from DIG COAXIAL - DIG OPTICAL - ANALOG. Sometimes this allows the electronics to "wake up". It also may help to be playing an actual input signal into the unit while trying this. I too have had frustrations with the unit using several brands of consumer and professional grade CD's. Occasionally, I have been successful in getting the unit to record music onto CD-ROM Data Discs when it's not supposed to. I have recorded onto Maxell, Sony, TDK and Discmakers (professional) blanks with varying results. FYI Radio Shack now stocks Verbatim brand discs for Music Recording (about $10 for 25 pack). Make sure it says "Digital Audio" on the outside wrappings. I am a professional recording engineer, and now plan to see if the manufacturer can help. One more idea, cleaning the blank disk with microfiber cloth has also helped. Good Luck with this problem, I'll keep watching this site for other solutions.

Samsung 62" flatscreen suddenly stopped


I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV.
Here was the problem. My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV(warranty was expired ofcourse) and found four bulged capacitors. Many electronic companies were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 yearsinstead of 10-20. The capacitors failprematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in allsorts of devices. Here are some options . 1. 1. Have it fixed by a professional 2. 2.. Dig into your TV, find PSB, Check for faultycaps. If you find some(bulged orleaking) bad caps replace the entire board 3. 3. Remove and then replace individual faultycaps. This takes some solderingskill. Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourselfit will save you hundreds.
Hope this helps

Disk Recover message and trays are locked


I have had the same problem. To reset the machine when this happens: 1.Switch off with front panel switch (display dims, but still shows same message). 2. Switch off at mains socket, leave off for about 15 seconds. 3. Switch on at mains socket then front panel - machine should then start up as normal.

I have experienced the "disc recover" condition several times now, when a radio recording has run to the end of a disc, and for some reason the recording process has not terminated properly, resulting in the loss of the recording. I found by trial and error that if you switch the mains off at the socket without first switching off at the front panel, then the disc can become corrupted and useless.

I suspect it is partly dependent on the make of disc as my current batch of TDK RWs do it almost every time, whereas with my last batch (can't remember if they were Maxell or Memorex) seemed much better.

I think the only way to prevent the problem is to manually stop the recording before the end of the disc is reached, I suspect possibly before the 74 minute 'red-book' CD limit is reached, even on an 80 min. disc, though I haven't yet tested that theory properly.

Hope this helps,

Either the optics have failed or the lens is dirty. Try opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Basically the unit can not read the disk and is requesting that you insert one. If the cleaning fails to resolve the problem, you will need to have the optics replaced.

On the remote, just above the red "REC" button is a button marked "LOCK". Hit this button and it will unlock the panel. I have hit this button accidently several times.

You power off then power back on while holding down the fast forward and rewind buttons on the recording side simultaneously. The display moves through a sequence of numbers and the trays will then open.

Error message


Din unlock means 'digital input is unlocked' meaning it is not receiving a signal on the **digita**l input you have selected. ( eg optical or single co-axial digital from another cd player etc) Check your connections and re-select the source using the front panel until you select the one you want. What are you recording from?
