Question about CD Players

1 Answer

Cd-player (recordable) stops at about track 4 on every CD I play

Or if it doesnt stop, it sounds terrible around track 4. Earlier and later tracks play ok.
Burner function has not worked for several years.
Should it just be cleaned?
I would appreciate some suggestions.
Thanks, Tomas

I,

Based on your post it would seem that the lens get stuck when moving along the slider at about the same position. You can try opening the unit and performing a manual clean and re-application of any thin lubricant. Additionally you can use a can of compressed air to blow accumulated dust and foreign debris inside the unit. The slider would be the small rod encircled in yellow dotted lines.

Is having trouble reading or tracking disc.I opened top and while playing disc the tracking mechanism goes out then back in and starts playing where it stopped?


You can clean the lens with a small amount of windex and put a little oil like 3 and 1 oil on the spindle motor shaft and on the sled rails. Good luck !

I have a de recorder 4050 when I try to put a track of a vinylalbum on cd, it stops after 20 seconds what can I do about it?


YOU mean "CD" recorder, right? A recorder will typically stop recording in the extended absence of audio.

And the track that is recorded - what does it sound like? If it's silence then you need to track your source back to its origin through the undefined electronics and find out why the signal isn't getting through to the recorder.

Hi , My cdr 830 stopped recording at maximum fidelity, and most recently all data disappears upon finalization, the prompt reading "new disc" after recording a whole 70 plus cd. Frustrating...


I can't speak to the hardware issues that might be at play here but I would advise you to retain the 'bad' recordings. I've copied unfinalized CD's from an old DVD player. It will read the CD but you won't be able to manuever around the tracks. As I recall, the track marks will still be there.

I don't know what you mean by 'maximum fidelity'. The CDR records at the CD standard of 44.1kHz. Digital is all ones and nones. Just data. If it is written correctly or with tolerable errors the ADC of the player (ANY player) turns it all into music.

Cd player starts, but stops play by 2nd track


Sounds like tracking motor and/or gear problem!
Check for a small crack on the tracking gear.
Parts not avalible from Bose though, they'll only
fix as a "flat rate"!

Tascam cd-rw750 - while recording from another CD player (using digital coax connection), machine records for some time and then just "jumps out of record mode" and goes back to the beginning like nothing...


1. First problem: "like nothing is recorded". IS something recorded or has it been left in Pause Mode so long (instead of Recording) that it just got impatient and time out?

2. Get yourself a couple of CD-RW Digital Audio discs to play with until you're past this learning curve/problem scenario. That way you can always erase them and start over without having to discard the disc.

3. Dropouts on playback. Are they repeatable - always at the same place, even on different CD players? If so, the data is bad on the disc. If not, the data is probably marginal.

4. If you have a DVD player, try to play the failed recordings in it. Some DVD players can play back unfinalized CDR's. You may be able to recover the data by copying it back to the CD Recorder from the DVD player. Just be advised that an unfinalized CD-RW may not have 'silence' following the last recorded track due to old data remaining from a previous session, so be ready to pause or stop the recorder when the last track finishes.

5. "Scratches near the outside of the CD". Were these NOT present prior to entering the CD Recorder? Do they seem to coincide with about where the recording may have failed?

6. 20 vs 19 tracks: Is this a constant problem or only when there is a failure during CD creation? If the latter, it would make sense as the last track in isn't technically completed.

I'm recording from cassette tape to CD and cannot figure out how to create a new track when I do it. I remember from the manual (which is lost) that a silence of ~4sec should automatically do it, but that...


Can you name the make and model? Maybe we can find a manual. I find a lot of them at retrevo.com. Just register for free and download whatever they have.

I think you have the 4 second thing backward.

Most CD Recorders will interpret a 4-second silence while recording as the end of a given track and will stop or pause. Some can can be set to leave a blank of 4 seconds between tracks (or not) when manually starting a new track. That can really be a problem on continuous recordings like live music or some classical material where brief silences occur routinely.

On my Pioneer PDR-509 there is a "Track No. Auto/Manual" selection that allows me to write a track manually whenever I want to. This is good for live or segued musical selections and doesn't require a stop/start of the recording. Of course, any time you pause or stop the track number will be incremented.

I can't really speak to the TOC errors. The fault could be with a) your machine, b) the media or c) the playback machine. The TOC is automatically created when you Finalize the disc. My machine takes 4 minutes to write it.

Little-known fact: a CD that is not finalized will not read/play on a CD player but a DVD player might play it from start to finish just fine, but without the ability to skip around because of the missing TOC. Nice to know if you mess up an original irreplaceable CD recording by not finalizing it and need to copy it over.

It wont record all my cd tracks, its starts


Sounds more like it won't record ANY of your CD tracks. Is there any indication why? Are you sure it has audio coming in? Many CD recorders will automatically stop recording if they sense extended silence.
