Yes, this can be caused by a faulty button or buttons, where they are stuck in the on position. The control line gets blocked by the stuck button, and won't even eject in some cases. Take it to a service centre and they should be able to resolve it while you wait, and drink their tea :)
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.
This player has essentially the same guts as my Pioneer PDR-509, so this is what it means...
'Repair' means the player lost power in mid-recording without commiting the track memory to a table of contents. It would likely take up to 40 minutes for the player to reconstruct it from the disk.
There is NO reason the player need be turned off (if that's where it took you) for a track pause.
Just press Pause, flip the LP over and hit Play or Pause again when you wish to continue recording.
Perhaps you don't know how to Finalize the disc either. It's not that intuitive. Press Finalize, after a while it will display a time, like 4:07. That means how long it will take to do the operation. Now press Pause and it will count down to 0:00 and be done. Then you can play it on any other CD player.
CD stuck in player. Unplug. Remove lid, small black screws on side and along the top of the back. Fiddle with latch on left side near front that controls the door. Once latch is released, open door and remove all CD's. Make sure 2 CD's are not **** in player. Move CD cage carefully. It should run smoothly along. If not it is locked in 'switched off mode' or CD is stuck half in and half out. If CD stuck fish CD out carefully. Plug back in without any CD's in. System should run back and forward and then lock at left hand end. Put lid on and try one CD in one slot.
I never had that problems. I have been using it over five years. Does it play commercially made CDs (the ones you bought at the store)? Panel shows track numbers and sound volume? Can you hear it by using a head set (phone volume control turned up? If so, now recording part, do you have input select correct (analog or digital)? Input cable(s) into right connector(s)? When you press "record" button, does it put into "pause" mode? Can you watch the incoming sound levels when it is on "pause" mode? Can you start the recording with remote's fader button or play/pause button on the machine? Good luck.
I have an Emerson from several years ago that I've taken all apart and put back together. My guess is, unless it auto powers off when paused, or there's another button besides play/pause, stop, Back, forward, mode, prog, and antiskip, your problem is better-solved with an mp3 player. An ipod shuffle would do fine. The shuffle feature can be turned on or off, and one may jog without disturbing the electronics.
