Hi rcstorms


You may indeed have an optics problem with the unit. Can you get access to the internals and clean the laser focal lens? Do this by gentle wiping it with a cotton bud moistened with some Windex. Then a gentle polish with a dry one to be sure no residue smearing is left. Then try again. You did not mention the quality of the discs you are trying to use. Some cheapo products do not work so well... Good luck.

regards
Graeme

My teac recorder model # cd-rw890 keeps flashing "reading" and will not let me operate the cd drive


How long have you had you CD recorder?
How many CDs have you burned on it?
The reason for asking is, it sounds like the laser has
failed or is failing to the point of not recognizing the
presence of a disc in the tray. Does it do this with any
disc you put in the tray. Blanks & pre recorded CDs?
A minimum amount of light must bounce back from the
surface of the disc or the unit thinks the tray is empty.
If the laser has become very weak (or died) the player
doen't know any better and thinks "no disc".
The "reading" message just indicates it hasn't passed
the stage where it has detected a disc, yet.
The first step is to run a laser cleaning disc in the player
on the off-chance the lens is dusty and that's the problem.
If you don't have one (you should) they're cheap enough
and available everywhere. If cleaning doesn't help, you
will be looking for a new laser assembly for your unit.
Be careful how much you pay for one. New 890s can be
had from Full Compass for under $200.00 and would be
a smarter move than repairing a tired one!

The pc won't burn cd's seems like it doesn't recognize cds or dvds


Does the cd/dvd drive read cds? This is a good test to ensure that the drive is functional.

Sometimes, generic cd/dvd burners do not recognize certain types of blank discs. Try another type of
brand blank discs, it should work.

My cd recorder wont read blank cds help me please


Do as it asks, insert blank CD-Audio or CD-Music media.

Discs for recording
For recording, make sure to use special audio discs only.
These discs are marked with “Digital Audio” and the logos shown below.
There are two different types of audio discs for the use on this CD recorder:
– CD-Audio Recordable (CDR) discs
These discs can be recorded on once and
play in all standard CD players and CD
recorders, when they are finalized.
– CD-Audio ReWritable (CDRW) discs
These discs can be recorded on, erased and
re-recorded many times and play in CDRW
compatible CD players and CD recorders,
when they are finalized.
– All Philips CD players and CD recorders
with the sticker shown here are CDRW
compatible.
To ensure proper working of the set we recommend the use of Philips audio CDR and audio CDRW discs only.
Note: Do not use a computer CDR or CDRW as recording will not work!

Go here and download the manual. You'll need it.

Device Won't Recognise Blank CD-R Media or Certain Music CDs.


try and see if you can pull a directory using explorer,, sometimes if you record to the full 80 minutes capacity, the disc will return an error,,,even if you recorded it on that drive...also i know this may sound strange but on the drive tray itself take the mount where the laser is mounted and extend it out to the furthest travel point ,,,gently,,,do not force...load the disc, and see if it is now recognized,,,sometimes it is a timing issue, and this way the tray/laser recalibrates itself....
