    What is the error message? Have you looked it up in the manual which is available free at retrevo.com? If it's OPC suspect something wrong or marginal with the CD. If it's a new brand of media that you have not used before maybe it won't work with the recorder.

A few small things to try. Turn off unit, unplug for 5 minutes, plug back in, turn unit on.

There is a product called a cd/dvd lens cleaning disc. Worth the investment to have around.

Sometimes spindle dvd blanks have a few bad ones.

Check manual, might describe exactly what types of dvd blanks are best to use with the unit.

Just some suggestions, hope this helps.

Disc reading


How confident are you at opening it up? And where are you? If it can get table of contents info it could be gummed up grease on the laser sled.

Cdr s1000 help


Hi Rick

The unit has stopped reading discs. I suggest taking the lid off and cleaning the laser lens with a cotton bud with a little Windex , then give it a gentle polish to be sure no residue smearing is left. If that does not fix it, check to see what actually happens when you load a disc. Does the transport fully engage and clamp the disc correct into the chucking assembly. Let me know how you got on:)

CDR shows No Disc


Have you tried to use a optical disk cleaner? it will remove dirt from the optical eye and is the first thing I would try. Since it won't read any disks then the optical eye may be dirty you can buy at Radio Shack, Staples, Office supply stores and Wall mart or Wallgreens Pharmacy you can order online at fry's or tiger direct.com hope this helps, if you need more help just post here.

You can try other brands of audio cdr but it sounds like your laser is on it's way out. Some find cdrw's still work after cdr's have stopped being recognised.

Won't record


I've just spoken to a friend who also has one of these older Philips recorders & he has the same problem.

As per my previous post, he fixed his problem by locating old stocks of blanks. New audio discs seem to have been manufactured & optimised for fast writing speeds (up to 32x speed) & this is causing the problem (you can't write at x1 or x2 speed to these new speedy discs).

Trying a few different brands of discs to try out is a whole lot cheaper than a repair. I suggest when you find a brand that works, you stock up on these discs as it seems they will become ever rarer.

Good luck!

You sure it's recognizing the CDR? And you are using 'consumer audio' cdr? Watch it at all times. If it 'opc fails' after you put a blank in it still shows as a CDR and 0:00 on the display but won't record. It's easy to miss.
