Just bought it but threw the box away because it worked right the first time!
I recorded on it and played it back for the first 10 minutes. It worked great! Now when I record on it and then try to play it back all I get is a loud static sound over what I recorded which you can very faintly hear in the background! Please help me!
Re: Just bought it but threw the box away because it...
Caution - some manufacturers recommend a specific type of CD for recording, otherwise the unit may not record properly. Was the CD a CD-R? CD-RW? 74 minute? 80 minute? See if there are any specific requirements first.

W2600 and similar boxes have issues grabbing any record that has an uneven hole. The selection process can go through the motions but if it doesn't pop up a 'pin' on the selector drum then nothing else will happen. Check for a pattern, like all 1 or all C fail and it will indicate the actual problem.
If the normal cancel button is working then take a look at the tone arm trip switch, which probably just needs adjusting. You can test this by flicking it with your finger when a record is playing. If it works it just needs adjusting to trip at the right place on the record.
The trip switch is located behind the fat end of the cobra tone arm on the back side of the arch, so you get to it by taking the machine back door off.
First thing's first.
At power up is the turn table turning? Is the drive motor turning? If so then the jukebox thinks it is playing a record. What happens when you press the cancel button on the back of the machine?
You should check the fuses anyway. Make sure they are the RIGHT value or you will just end up frying your jukebox if you get a serious short.
Cleaning will not help if it plays fine and does not record.
The previous owner was right, those can only record on "Music CD-R or Audio CD-R" . If it does not have that printed on the disc, it willnot record with it. many people think that a CD-R they use in the computer will work, but they won't. So make sure you are not using a CD-R meant for a computer.
Try using Sony, they work good for me on most all recorders I repair.
If that does not work, you may just need it to be serviced, or take it back to the guy you bought it from and get your money back. He sold you a bad recorder. They are very exspensive to repair most of the time.
Sorry I did not have better news, good luck and let me know if you need any more help.
I never had that problems. I have been using it over five years. Does it play commercially made CDs (the ones you bought at the store)? Panel shows track numbers and sound volume? Can you hear it by using a head set (phone volume control turned up? If so, now recording part, do you have input select correct (analog or digital)? Input cable(s) into right connector(s)? When you press "record" button, does it put into "pause" mode? Can you watch the incoming sound levels when it is on "pause" mode? Can you start the recording with remote's fader button or play/pause button on the machine? Good luck.
Get yourself a copy of the manual directly from the Philips website (look on the left of the screen for all the relevant links)
Your CD recorder has a 2 pairs of phono (rca) sockets on the back.
Connect your keyboard's output (line out ideally or headphones if there isn't a line-out) to the inputs on the back of your CD recorder. And connect the outputs from the CD recorder to your amplifier. If you don't have an amp, you can plug headphones into the CD recorder so you can hear what you're playing.
