SOURCE: 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.

OPC stands for Optimum Power Calibration. basically, it's a small test to write on the media and read it back for self calibration of the laser power.
Is this brand new to you (never worked) or did this problem appear suddenly? Did you just change brands of blank discs?
I'd try different blank discs to see if it's sensitive to some. Of course they recommend only Philips brand but most major brands should work. Sometimes the "times x" recording rating needs to be higher or lower.
You can Google Optimum Power Calibration for more informstion on that function.

Testimonial: "Your suggestion worked! I had purchased a different brand of CD blanks...bought some SONY CD-R Music discs that work great! Thanks a million! "
I HAVE A PHILIPS CDR 870 "OPC FAIL" PROBLEM. I HAVE RECORDED ONTO CD-RW, AND NOT YET FINALISED THE DISK AFTER RECORDING, IN ORDER THAT I CAN GO BACK LATER TO ADD FURTHER RECORDINGS. AFTER SWITCHING THE MACHINE BACK ON OPC THEN OPC FAIL FOLLOWS, EVEN WITH NEW DISKS CD-R AND CD-RW. MGHT THE MACHINE ITSELF REQUIE CLEANING OR IS THIS A FAULT? I AM USING MAXCELL DISKS, BOTH TYPES. THANKS. JEREMY. GATESHEAD.
