Question about Philips CDR796 2-Disc CD Recorder
My Philips CDR 796 has been trouble free until today. After recording a CD from TIVO (something I frequently do) the display came up with the message "Disk Recover". Now I can't eject the disk or find out what to do!
I have had the same problem. To reset the machine when this happens: 1.Switch off with front panel switch (display dims, but still shows same message). 2. Switch off at mains socket, leave off for about 15 seconds. 3. Switch on at mains socket then front panel - machine should then start up as normal.
I have experienced the "disc recover" condition several times now, when a radio recording has run to the end of a disc, and for some reason the recording process has not terminated properly, resulting in the loss of the recording. I found by trial and error that if you switch the mains off at the socket without first switching off at the front panel, then the disc can become corrupted and useless.
I suspect it is partly dependent on the make of disc as my current batch of TDK RWs do it almost every time, whereas with my last batch (can't remember if they were Maxell or Memorex) seemed much better.
I think the only way to prevent the problem is to manually stop the recording before the end of the disc is reached, I suspect possibly before the 74 minute 'red-book' CD limit is reached, even on an 80 min. disc, though I haven't yet tested that theory properly.
Hope this helps,
