NOW OPC error my Tascam CD-RW750 Only using a cd-rw


All I can think of is to try other makes of blank discs. Also, if your machine ever comes up 'ERROR' and you have no control of any functions including powering it off or on-remove the plug from the wall and wait about a minute, then plug it back in.

Recording


The No OPC message means that the unit can't record. The laser power calibration for the burner failed the internal test with that disc. Was the disc a blank disc? Make sure that you use a clean CD-R or unfinalized CD-RW. Try a different lot or brand of CD-Rs or CD-RWs. If the problem persists, then the laser on the recorder is damaged. If the unit is under warranty, contact Philips. However, based on the date given on the manual, this may not be worth finding a shop to fix the unit. DVD/CD burners for computers are fairly cheap but I'm not sure of the specs for a replacement CD burner for inside this unit.

The manual is available from Philips here: www.p4c.philips.com/files/c/cdr765bk/cdr765bk_dfu_eng.pdf . The trouble-shooting information is on page 21 (page 23 of the PDF).
I hope this helps.

Hi.I have CD Recorder Marantz DR6000.After reading and initalizing blank CD-R Audio next on display show OPC ERROR.It,s reading all audio CD,s,oryginal,and CD-R.When I wanna finalized old CD-R,recorded by...


DR-6000 only accepts CD-R audio or CD-R music discs, not the standard CD-R discs. the difference is that the audio and music discs have the OPC formatted differently and they cost a bit more because they include the royalties fee. Standard CD-R discs won't work in this recorder. The correct discs have compact disc "digital audio" logo on them.

Cd will not eject. Keeps giving message "Now OPC" but will not do anything and will not eject cd either.


To remove a stuck CD from Tascam CC222 MKII

This solved the "Now OPC" problem



1. Unplug unit

2. Remove the top cover, (3 screws on each side and 3 on the back, lift cover).

3. Plug in unit.

4. Power on the unit to observe the drive spindle spinning clockwise, (1" disc on top of drive).

5. Turn off unit, do not unplug at this time.

6. Use a small screwdriver to prevent the drive spindle from spinning.

7. Power on the unit preventing the spin.

8. In approximately 10 seconds the display will read "Disc Error" and the CD tray will open.

9. Remove the screwdriver and the disc.

10. Turn off the unit and unplug.

11. Replace the cover.

12. Use a better quality disc.

OPC Error


It implies a media Optical Power Calibration problem (google it). Did you recently start using a different type or brand of disc?

THIS IS AN OLD UNIT. SUDDENLY THOUGH IT HAS STOPPED RECORDING.THE MANUAL HAS A NOTE IN IT ABOUT THE OPC LIMIT.1st QUESTION IS WHICH SIDE OF THE RECORDER IS IT TALKING ABOUT BECAUSE IT HAS RECORDED OVER...


Are you actually getting a message regarding OPC?

I'm not sure we can determine which CD drive is exhibiting the problem from what is given, if that's what your Question #1 is about.

Answer #2: If the problem appears at initial calibration of the new disc, try a different (or cleaner) disc. BTW: did you start using a different brand or type of disc in the middle of this?

These links lead to some technical info about what OPC is.

http://www.cdrfaq.org/faq05.html#S5-11

http://www.osta.org/specs/pdf/opc.pdf

Running Optimum Power Control (Running OPC)
A technique used by recorders for monitoring and maintaining the accuracy of all the
mark and land lengths across a CD-R disc.

-----
The CD Recorder does some sample write testing at the beginning of a disc to get a bead on how much laser power it needs to use to make reliable 'ones and nones" on the media. It records the settings in memory. Throughout the recording it monitors surface relectivity and compares it against the test data and in many cases can compensate on the fly for changes.

My read on this is that it may be trying to tell you on any given recording that it has reached or surpassed its effectiveness limit.

Disc won't initialize or record, keeps saying no disc or opc erro


I suggest you try cleaning the lens...

If the wrong disc was inserted, say a music disc, there would surely be a message to that effect. If no such message is displayed I would guess the unit is faulty.

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.

Good luck!

OPC ERROR


how would I go about fixing the lazer problem with this issue of OPC Error when I push record. Sometimes when I use a lens cleaner, it will records some cds and then the error shows up again. Any help, Thanks

You sure it's recognizing the CDR? And you are using 'consumer audio' cdr? Watch it at all times. If it 'opc fails' after you put a blank in it still shows as a CDR and 0:00 on the display but won't record. It's easy to miss.
