I work at a service center in the U.S. and I have a lot of trouble getting any Phillips parts. My service center has given up on Phillips, we have had too many problems with them. Sorry to give you this bad news. You might want to look on ebay for one with a disc loading problem or some other problem not related to the cd player. Sometimes you can find them cheap. The laser would cost you in the range of $50 to $75 US if you can find one.

Good luck,

Dave

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.

I bought this CD player in 1989 and all of a sudden it stops reading CD's. I bought a similar Technics CD player on Ebay and when I received it the same problem occurred. this seems like a common problem...


these models use the 12.1 philips laser mechanism and your right it is a very common problem.
various marantz / philips / cyrus cd players etc also use it and are plagued with the same fault.
it's a 90% chance the laser is dead!
philips realised the unreliability of this laser and uprated it to the identical looking VAM-12.
do not dismiss the spindle motor as these also fail quite alot on this mechanism.

hope this helps.

DR6000 display "open"


you may need to replace the whole mechanism as i've had quite a few philips and marantz cd recorders with the same mechanism with exactly the same problem. when you press open/close it will display open or close with no sign of life from the player. this turned out to be a faulty laser unit and the PCB which is underneath the mechanism seems to go the same way which i found out later when i replaced the laser unit. the recorder worked for around 5 minutes then the laser started moving erratically but then would work again for 5 minutes after switching it off & on again. i cured the fault by replacing the PCB aswell. hope this helps?

My Sony cd player spins but won't play. Cleaned


Those CD cleaners rarely work. They are nothing but small brushes on a plastic CD. Unless the problem is loose dust, they won't work. Try carefully opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that does not resolve the problem, post the model number and I'll provide the replacement optics part number and cost. Some units have replacement optics that cost less than $15. Dan

Laser Pickup/Transport


Odds are it'll be a philips or a sony laser. I can't find anything via google. If you can identify it a bit further by opening the unit and noting the markings on the laser, you should be able to source a replacement on ebay for between £5 - £25. Try and get a genuine laser unit rather than a cheap chinese knockoff.
