Question about Philips CDR796 2-Disc CD Recorder

1 Answer

Will not record disc-to-disc

After putting in both the recordable disc and the disc to be recorded, the display shows 'preparing' and will not continue. The machine then refuses to eject either disc unless you unplug it! I have had different messages displayed the most common being 'initialising'. I did leave the machine to it once thinking it would start recording- 8hours later it still had 'initialisng' on the display! When I first got this player it was very reliable, now though....please help!

The first thing to try is cleaning the lenses,sounds obvious,but i think thats why its continuing to try :initialising: if that fails the lense that reads the disc or both likely need realigning most problems that acure whith any cdplayers ect are down to the lenses.

My Yamaha CDR D651 appears to dislike new 50x maxell CD-r discs saying not audio. Works fine with 12x discs. What's wrong? Rowan


you probably have regular cd-r disks that cannot be recorded on in this unit. You can only use disks marked "DIGITAL AUDIO" for recording

I PUT IN A NEW BLANK DVD THE RECORDER PREPARES TO RECORD THEN AFTER ONE MINUTE IT STOPS RECORDING . I OPEN & RECLOSE THE TRAY & THE RCA RECORDER SAYS BAD DISC.


Some DVD players need to format the DVD+/- R disc before it can be used to record on this is a bit strange as its a WORM (write once read many) disc this is usually what happens with DVD+/- RW media.

If the DVD recorder doesn't finalize (the process that makes it compatible with other players) the DVD+/- R correctly then is will be rendered useless, another coaster for you to use with you cuppa.

I suggest that you use DVD+/- RW media that doesn't need finalizing at least until you can sort out your problem.

WRT your problem with it only recording for a short while it might be that the DVD stops spinning you might need to take the cover off and check this.

Dvd recorder can't read disc it previously read


Take the Disc out and put it aside. You must clean the Laser Eye, and clean dust and other matter from inside your recorder. Clean Eye with rubbibg alcohol and q-tip. A regular CD/DVD cleaner disc will not work. After cleaning, reinsert your Disc and Finalize it.

Recording Fall, Invalid disk


Try using Sony +R discs. or +RW's are good, any brand as long as they are +'s. For some reason alot of +R discs brands will not work, I wait and just get Sony +R or the +RW's on sale and stock up and I have no more troubles. Mine is the 05MU. The ZU is a little strange with the RW but will still record. Hope this helps.

RCA CD recorder/player CDRW120


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.
