Question about Philips Audio Players & Recorders
Philips cdr 765: Online, I purchased a pack of TDK's audio cd-rw for the recorder. Recorder will not record the blank cd and the door won't open ( I opened it only after endless times pressing the open/close button). Like the right side tray, the
left side has no problem playing or opening the door when a pre-recorded cd is inserted.... can u please tell me if this can be fix.. by the way, I have already atempted to fix it by cleaning the laser with a cotton swab and alcohol, Thankyou.. mario
Is the motor spinning to try to open the drawer?Can you hear it? Can you get something under the tray edge to try to 'help' it out when pressing eject?

Remove the 765's casing. If you don't have a star shapped screwdriver use a flat head which sits tight in the screwheads diagonals. Once removed, observe the 765's driver chip which sits behind the recording deck mechanism of the left hand deck. With the power cord disconected carefully remove this chip by gently working a flathead driver between the chip and it's base (the chip is not soldered to it's base but take care not to bend the pins) Once removed, power up the unit for a few seconds making sure that you do not touch the live internal workings. Remove the power cord again and switch the power button on for a few seconds(with no power chord attached) to allow the units capacitors to discharge fully . Gently replace the driver chip. Replace the cover and switch the unit on again. The unit should reboot and the gremlins should be gone.

There are a lot of forums which discuss OPC failure and it strikes every hardware maker and brand of media.
The bottom line is that certain media and certain writers just don't get along.
"I don't buy expensive blanks. I buy modest quality blanks and watch
for sales so that I can them for about a dime a piece after the rebate
check comes in. If I have an OPC Fail message, I try another blank. If
I find that they consistently fail (about half a buck wasted) I move
the stack over to the computer (which seems to work fine with these)
and buy another stack of blanks of a different brand next time I see a
an interesting workaround:
"CDRW 5000 work around for OPC FAIL
Here's a work around for OPC FAIL on cdrw 5000 -
method 1: turn unit on at least 30 minutes or more before use (this seems to work best for me)
method 2: run OPC on an old cd that always works - after OPC passes, remove old cd and insert new CD (you only get 99 OPC runs per disc)
-or use a combination of the two methods
I've always used TDK and I recently bought a new batch and they stopped working. The old ones still work everytime. I don't know enough about the system to guess what the difference is.
side note: CDRW 2000 will finalise discs from the cdrw 5000 but not the other way around.
Hope that helps "

This could be a bad belt or a defective end sense switch. The parts are no longer available I am told for this unit by New Jersey Factory Service where the could be fixed. This is one of the older models.
