Question about Philips CDR820 4-Disc CD Recorder

1 Answer

I Have a Philips CDR820. The problem I have is that the system is "freezing up" and wont play. The troubleshooting manual says to unlug the player for a short time and plug back in. I do this over and over and over as the player keeps freezing up. I can't get cd's in the carousel to play when it freezes up. It won't change from one cd to the next. It won't even open the trays when it freezes up. Any suggestions?

What does the display read when this happens, I have experience with these, does it say disc recover? also when the laser reader gets old, it may be done, unless you can maybe find someone with replacement. Old or scratched cds won't read well, or skip also.

No! I do not know a repairer, but if this cd820 doesn't work right then you need to take it back. Usually in the box it has a place to send or call for repairs.

Why wont the arcsoft updater update my media converter for philips?? It only says error "abort" "retry" or "ignore" listed as my options, why wont it update?

The software is really bad it won't work for mine either. The update for it is to fix it because sometimes it freezes up and you have to press the reset button on the back. I wouldn't mind updating if were you
