Question about Philips CDR870 CD Recorder

1 Answer

Have just purchased a secondhand Philips 570 cd recorder and purchased TDK blanks for my first recording test.While the disc was still in the machine it recorded and played back ok.However,after removing the disc and reinserting it just states "no disc" and will not do anything.What is going on? Incidentally,this disc plays fine on my DVD player but will not play on the machine that just recorded it or my Technics CD player!

Are you sure the TDK blank had either AUDIO/MUSIC somewhere written on the disc...if not, then that is the problem. On the other hand it it should not have recorded or played back as you said it did.
If it did have Audio/Music written on the disc, then first of all give the laser a clean by using either a disc cleaner or better still, take the cover off and gain access to the laser, using a cotton bud, diped in INDUSTRIAL METHALATED SPIRIT (usually coloured purple) do not use medical metholated spirit as oily additives could be added and smear the laser lens. Dry off the lens with the dry end of the cotton bud. Do not soak the cotton bud in the spirit, just a very small amount will do !!!
If it does not work now, try using other good named branded Audio/Music CD-R discs as there appears to be such a variation in the quality of CD discs which is well documented !
Did you FINALISE the TDK disc before you removed it from you recorder??
I have a feeling its the TDK disk.....I avoid TDK if I can...Try Sony or Philips Audio/Music discs, very few failures for me with those brands.
Hope this has ben of some help...good luck

I have a philips audio recorder cdr 760 When i try to record cd rw a blank audio tdk cd the machine said OPC FAIL What I have to do to record the cd rw on my Philips cdr 760 Thanks for your...


There are a lot of forums which discuss OPC failure and it strikes every hardware maker and brand of media.

The bottom line is that certain media and certain writers just don't get along.

The manual:

Discussion online:

http://homerecording.com/bbs/general-discussions/recording-techniques/phillips-cdr870-187247/


http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview/id/318687.html

"I don't buy expensive blanks. I buy modest quality blanks and watch
for sales so that I can them for about a dime a piece after the rebate
check comes in. If I have an OPC Fail message, I try another blank. If
I find that they consistently fail (about half a buck wasted) I move
the stack over to the computer (which seems to work fine with these)
and buy another stack of blanks of a different brand next time I see a
good price..."

an interesting workaround:

"CDRW 5000 work around for OPC FAIL
Here's a work around for OPC FAIL on cdrw 5000 -

method 1: turn unit on at least 30 minutes or more before use (this seems to work best for me)

method 2: run OPC on an old cd that always works - after OPC passes, remove old cd and insert new CD (you only get 99 OPC runs per disc)

-or use a combination of the two methods

I've always used TDK and I recently bought a new batch and they stopped working. The old ones still work everytime. I don't know enough about the system to guess what the difference is.

side note: CDRW 2000 will finalise discs from the cdrw 5000 but not the other way around.

Hope that helps "

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.

I have a hardtime finding blank CD RW that work


Hi!
I have the same problem too. Tried with, of course only audio cd, TDK (no-opc rate approx 80%), Philips (40/50% and sometimes not good quality on different readers). The best, i.e. less no-opc rate, I found are Sony Premium.

Sometimes it's ok if after no-opc you turn off and restart with test (play+stop+turn on).

I cannot find TDK XA80 CD-R Audio - Recordable Compact Discs


All you guys looking for AUDIO burner CDs' should try the MEMOREX CD-R MUSIC CDs. These are a new product, released to REPLACE the TDK XA80 AUDIO CDs.

Stocks are a bit low right now - but only because this is a new product - and people like me are buying up big.

'Tanya' at JB Hi Fi in Erina Fair on the NSW Central Coast, has promised me that she will be ordering plenty of these discs because she is aware of our dilema. Apparently Head Office of JB HiFi has also advised their numerous stores of this MEMOREX product and they should all be having them in stock shortly.

Product description:
Red cardboard box with 10 blank CDs in slim jewel cases. Marked "Memorex Music CD-R" 700MB (80min) Mine cost me $8.95c for this pack of ten.

These work fine on my stand alone, Hi-Fi LG dual tray burner and also on a mates' Pioneer CD burner. Good luck and thank God for Memorex!

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' !!
