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)

Getting error message "Din Unlock


That means you don't have a good DIgital INput (get it?) signal or bitstream. Correct the source's playback or connection.
It's on page 37 of the manual.

Tip

Philips CDR870


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 with an appropriate lens cleaning CD, seem to be the best ideas. Also, try wiping the blank or partially blank CD using a lintless microfiber cloth from the center outward to remove smudges and fingerprints. Several "failed" discs miraculously recorded after wiping.

If you're willing to "go under the hood", (you;ll need a #10 Torx screwdiver to remove the cover screws), you might try gently vacuuming the inside of the unit, brushing components gently with a soft camel hair brush to dislodge any dust that has accumulated; then gently sucking it into the vacuum cleaner. Make sure you've disconnected power to the CDR870 first! Trying to reach the laser lens itself involves surgical like dis-assembly of the sub-chasis and technical skills way beyond those of the average techie. I strongly DO NOT advise it!

Another possible solution is to let the unit "warm up" for about a half hour prior to recording, this may "cook" some electronic parts, and maybe change an internal condition 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 CD Recordable Discs say "Music" or "Digital Audio" on the outside wrappings. I am a professional recording engineer, and now plan to see if the manufacturer, Philips Consumer Electronics in KY, can help.
Good Luck with this problem, I'll keep watching this site for other solutions.

The definiton in the manual suggests you are trying to record a digital bitstream that is either dead or incompatible with the recorder. Go analog.

What happens if you skip the receiver? Be advised that anything coming in digitally through a cable/satellite box may be muliti-channel and convertible by the player to its native 44.1 khz sampling rate.

1972 Seeburg, trouble opening back panel, buzzing volume sound...


Hi Rob,

When you open the front of the jukebox you will see on the rear of the jukebox is a lever that unlocks the rear door.

However if you have a problem with the sound the access to the amplifier is behind and above the keyboard, again there is a lever to open this access as well once you have opened the title door on the front of the jukebox.

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,
HifiJohn

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?
