Question about Philips FW-R7 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

Recording I am trying to make a CD from an external source, and the CDR won't stay shut. It keeps spitting the CD-R back out and I've used these discs in the past and know they are compatible.

I have connected my phillips cdr785 recorder the proper way to record from an external source and I get the message "start source" on the cdr side when trying to record. And it never starts...


If you're recording an analog source the recorder won't automatically start. You have to start it in sync with the playback.

If you're trying a synchronized digital recording...

Page 28 of the manual says

Start playback on the selected source.


The CD recorder starts to record simultaneously and recording in progress is shown. The remaining recording time left of the CDR(W) is displayed.


Note: If you start playback on the selected source within a track, recording starts at the beginning of the next track or after 2.7 seconds of silence in analogue recordings.

I don't founr cd 74 mn 650mb, what use the DENON CDR M30 ??


If I understand your question, it can play any kind of music CD but it can only record on CDR-Audio or CDR-Music discs only.

• Only audio CD-R/RW discs can be recorded with this unit. "Use Audio CD" will be displayed when a disc other than one

for use with audio such as a CD-R/RW disc for use with a personal computer or another type of disc is loaded. (See "Discs that Can Be Used with this Unit" on Page 5.)

• CD-R discs can be recorded to only once. The recorded information cannot be erased.

• The recorded information of CD-RW discs can be erased. When this disc has been finalized, erase after the finalization removal operation has been performed. (See "Cancellation of CD-RW disc finalizing" on Page 28.)

• Recording mistakes made with CD-R discs cannot be erased; therefore, it is recommended that a CD-RW disc be used until you are accustomed to the recording operation.


If you desire 74-minute blank disc just Google "cd-r audio 74". The unit will also use 800MB 80-minute CD's.

Cd not recording


Be sure to "finalize" the recorded cd before use in another cd player. Another thing is there are always a few bad discs in a spindle of blank discs... And sometimes you will get "check disc" or "bad disc" when a blank disc is inserted. I would be sure to use blank discs for audio use, not computer use, with your Yamaha.

Problem with Finalizing Disc


When you insert the disc what does the recorder display after it examines it (Reading TOC)? - CDR, TOC, CDR-W, NO TOC?

It should know the disc is not finalized and let you either record more on it or finalize it.

If not, and you need to recover the 4 tracks try loading the disc on a DVD player. My old Pioneer will read unfinalized CDR-A's so I can digitally copy what's on them back to another CDR-A.

Problem with analog recording on Yamaha CDR D651


Your assessment that it duplicates CD's internally fits with an analog-only failure mode. Let's make sure the signal is getting past your RCA jacks on the deck...

Put the deck in a Rec/Standby mode and make sure an analog source registers adequate volume on the meters. If it's good there and doesn't change with cable swapping between the input channels, you're right, the problem is internal. Maybe the volume potentiometer itself has developed a dead spot. Manually rotate it throughout its range many times to wipe it clean.

If you have an external optical digital source use it to check the meters in digital recording mode to be sure they're about even. The same knob affects analog and digital levels.

If you have the deck connected via the traditional Tape Monitor circuit in a receiver you should be able to tell by ear if the one channel is dead or too low. This puts all of the recording circuitry including the volume knob in line with your receiver.

Need user manual


I have the CDR-200 and did not have the manual either. However, I did discover the same problem and found the solution. There is a "confirm" button on the front of the unit under the display area. After you press the record button "Record" will begin to flash in the display area and then you press "Confirm". It should start recording. Note however the following:

BURNING FROM EXTERNAL CASSETTE OR PHONO
Before starting this procedure make sure you have an AUDIO recording CD in the RECORDER tray of the CDR-200. A regular CD-R type of disc for computers is not going to work and may cause an annoying message on the display which does not go away until you put the right type of recording CD in the unit. It must be either an AUDIO CD-R or an AUDIO CD/RW.

1. When copying from an external cassette deck, you should set the source (press source button) until the setting is "Analog".

2. The "Dual" button should not be in effect. In the lower right portion of the screen you should only see a small number "1" with a circle around it. This indicates the CDs currently being used by the burner. In "dual" mode you can copy from the Playback CD of the CDR-200 to the Recorder CD. In dual mode you see "1" and "2" with circles around them. The active CD tray will flash on the display.

3. When copying from an external cassette unit, you use the "Record" button to start the recording. At the end of the cassette track you MUST press the STOP button by the CD Recorder tray. After you press STOP the unit will say "Update" which indicates it is closing out the track on the CD-R. You can continue to write tracks by pressing RECORD again, then CONFIRM when the tape is positioned at the right PLAYBACK track. It is usually helpful to have a few seconds of blank tape at the start of the PLAYBACK track before pressing RECORD. Press play on the cassette deck, then RECORD followed by CONFIRM on the CD burner.

4. When the track has finished burning you must press STOP to close the track on the CD-R. After you press STOP, the unit will display "Update" to indicate it is updating or closing the track. When the process completes, the unit will display the tracks it has written to the CD-R and will be ready for you to copy another track or FINALIZE the CD-R. When the unit is waiting after the STOP, you can change the cassette tape, reposition to a playback track and ready the playback tape for more recording. When the PLAYBACK tape is ready repeat STEP 3. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you have about 14 or 15 tracks on the CD-R.

5. When you have finished recording about 14 or 15 tracks onto the CD-R, you will want to finalize the CD-R. Press the FINALIZE button, and then press the CONFIRM button. You will see the the unit start to display the progress of the finalize by advancing the level meters of the left and right channels in the display. When the unit is finished finalizing it will return to the number of tracks display for the CD-R. After finalizing the CD-R you can play it back to make sure the burn was successful. Be sure to wait for the tracks display before removing or playing the CD-R after the finalize is done. Removing before the finalize is done may damage the unit and may render the CD-R bad.

BURNING FROM THE PLAYBACK CD
Before starting this procedure make sure you have an AUDIO recording CD in the RECORDER tray of the CDR-200. A regular CD-R type of disc for computers is not going to work and may cause an annoying message on the display which does not go away until you put the right type of recording CD in the unit. It must be either an AUDIO CD-R or an AUDIO CD/RW.

1. Set the unit to "Dual" mode. As described above, you will see "1" and "2" with small circles in the lower right portion of the display.

2. Make sure the "Source" mode is set to "Analog" by repeatedly pressing the SOURCE button until it shows "Analog".
3. When copying from the PLAYBACK CD tray you will not use the RECORD button by the CD Burner tray. You will use the 'DUB" button just to the right of the display.

4. Put an audio CD in the PLAYBACK CD tray and press the skip track button ">>" until you arrive at the track you wish to record from. If the track you want to start at is track 1, then you don't need to skip tracks.

5. When positioned at the correct playback track, press the DUB button. The unit will show "CDR" and then "DUB" on the display. When it says "DUB" press the CONFIRM button. The unit will start recording. You can adjust the record level during the first few seconds to make sure you don't have the recording volume level set too high.

6. When the track is finished, you should see the unit indicate on the display "Update". This indicates it is closing the track and it should do this automatically. If it does not do this you may have to press STOP near the RECORDER Tray to force closing of the track. Usually the unit indicates "AUTO" in the display area and I believe that is what controls the automatic track numbering feature. I am not sure how the AUTO feature is turned on. I noticed on the CDR-200 it is on by default.

7. After the UPDATE is complete, the unit will display the number of tracks it has written to the CD-R. You can at this point change the PLAYBACK CD to another one or advance to another track for continued recording. When at the correct track simply go back to step 5 and continue.

8. When you are all done copying tracks from one or more CDs, and you wish to finalize the CD press FINALIZE and then press CONFIRM to start the finalize process. I noticed on the CDR-200 if you wait too long after recording a track the unit may start the finalize process automatically. This happened after at least 5 minutes. It is best to try and stay with the copy process to monitor what is happening. The finalize can also start if you have written to many tracks to the CD-R and it runs out of space. Typically, your safe if you burn about 14 to 15 tracks to a CD-R at a time. You might be able to fit more if the tracks are very short (2-3 minutes each).

One last note about the connections on the back of the unit. Read the labels of the connections on the back very carefully. The CDR-200 and probably the 201 have separate outputs for the PLAYBACK CD (CD) and BURNER CD (CDR). You will want to connect these to seperate inputs on your audio amplifier. Or you might also wish to merge them using adapters into one input on your audio amplifier. If you keep them separate you will need to change sources on the audio amplifier to hear each tray. For example, you might need to switch to "CD/TAPE" for the CD, and "AUX" for the CDR. It is probably easier to merge the two using audio adapters which can be readily obtained from RadioShack.

I hope this helps!

Wrond Disc


The disc you need to use to record is "PHILIPS CDR MUSIC". That is what it should day on the top of the disc. On the left side of the disc, it should say "DIGITAL AUDIO RECORDABLE". I spent a lot of money buying the wrong discs before finally finding the correct one. So I know your frustration!

No Audio 10 Error


What have you got hooked up? Another CD, tape outs from an amp or a record deck? No audio is a strange message to get, like you say you're using an audio cdr and that's usually what it means. What about if you press record with *no* source connected? Unit should record 20 seconds of silence then cut off.

RECORD DROP OUT


Just bought this CDR 570 and not use yet.

Reading the instruction manual - yes, life experience has taught me some really useful stuff! -

Under 'Discs for recording' on page 7 it says at end of section

IMPORTANT:
To ensure proper working of the set we recommend the use of PHILIPS audio CDR and audio CDRW discs only'
Roughly translated I read this to me - 'don't blame us if the set don't work using other (non-compatible) discs' !!
