20 Most Recent Philips CDR760 CD Player Questions & Answers

I have a Phillips 775 CD Recorder, and can only get it to record using Maxell CD-R Music Pro brand blank discs. They usually come in packs of 10 and are in full-size jewel cases. Haven't bought any in awhile and am not sure about availability.Hope this helps.

hi, please read this link: http://www.fixya.com/support/t8055461-philips
if you have been using your old media and this happened with new media the problem is the record speed of new disk. if you are using the same old media maybe your recorder needs an OPU cleaning.

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.

The manual:


Discussion online:



"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
good price..."

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 "

You can not use normal Data CDs. Use CD-R Digital Audio CDs or CD-R Audio recordable CDs. If you use correct Digital Audio Recordable CDs, it will show OPC. Once you press Recording, audio out is coming. Otherwise you can not listing to audio. Please read manual carefully. Above will solve your matter.

Sounds suspiciously like a dry joint in the circuitry (probably power supply) which loses contact when the unit warms up. It could be many other things but that's what I'd be going for first. This would require the top being pulled of (unplugged of course) and the power supply removed to access the solder side. Watch out for the electrolytic capacitors, they can hold a spark for a while after switch off. If you're good with a soldering iron run fresh solder onto the existing solder joints, don't overdo the amount of solder or leave the iron on one spot too long, it could lift the actual PCB tracks. Also check the fuse for good solder joints both ends. When you think you've covered most of the board reassemble and switch on. It certainly sounds like a heat induced problem so even purchasing a can of freeze from your local electrical store and spraying heatsinks or suspect components may find the culprit component. (don't forget to use the spray tube which should come with the freeze, it keeps the fingers and can away from nasty voltages.)

Of course this assumes you have the knowledge and ability and a decent soldering iron to tackle the job. If it scares you or worries you then pass the worry off onto a qualified tech

My Phillips 775 CD recorder will now only record with Maxell CD-R Music Pro brand discs. They might still be availabvle at Wal-Mart - they are usually in a bulk pack and are in full-size jewel cases. Don't know if that'll solve your problem. If you buy that brand of discs and they don't help, I'll buy them from you...

This music system is a basic setup so your choices are limited. You could try using a cable connection. The type you need is a "phono jack plug" to "3.5mm jack plug" cable. They are usually very cheap and most TV and Technology Stores will keep them in stock.

The cable has different styles of connector at each end. One end is the same as the round red and white plugs at the top of the photograph and the other end is a standard headphones connector. Plug the red and white pair into an 'Audio In' position on the back of the system and the other end into the headphone hole on your mobile phone. (Try the position above the two already in the system). Select the channel on the system for that connector and press play on your mobile device.
