Question about Philips CDR765 2-Disc CD Recorder
Hi My cdr has started showing no disc after a disc has been loaded does it with any cd you load. Anything i can try or is this a case of buying a new one Cheers tolly
I just purchased one from Ebay. It plays fine on both sides. The recorder will recognize CDR's and the display will say recordable media. But, when I attempt to actually record, it won't work. I have another unit exactly like this one and the CD's I have work fine with that unit. I'm guessing this unit's recorder is bad? Any suggestions? Thanks.

The playback side is driven as a slave from the recording side.
The 'no disc' issue for the recorder is more likely a failure of the fragile philips CDD3610 laser used in the unit. I can supply parts and service manuals should people need them ( fluffcat1 on ebay )

FOR ME, THE PROBLEM IS THE CD-R DISC. I STILL HAVE A LOT OF AUDIO CD-R BLANKS THAT I BOUGHT IN THE 90'S
WHICH WORK FINE ON MY PHILIPPS CD-R, BUT THE NEWER AUDIO CD-R BLANKS (FROM YRS 2000? TO THE
PRESENT) CAN'T BE RECOGNIZED BY THE PHILIPPS CDR 765. OUTDATED LASERS IS THE PROBLEM. BETTER TO BUY ANOTHER ONE. AS MANY AGREE WITH ME, WE ARE OWED SOME COMPENSATION FROM PHILIPPS. I PAID
AROUND $450 FOR MINE WHEN IT FIRST CAME OUT ON THE MARKET.

I have this exact same problem. I let the unit sit for a year until I could get back to it and guess what, both drives worked for a few minutes. Then, the non-recording side died again, "No Disk" messages then the recording side died. I started looking at the power supply since both sides would have this in common. During this process of debugging I damaged the power supply. I bought a new one (faster then fixing it, it needed the PWM chip and the FET). I still get the same problem on the non-recording side, the recoring side seems to still be working however? Note, the supply got damaged because the big capacitor which filters the High Voltage DC before it is switched down to the lower voltages, stays charged after power down, for a long time. I actually had the board removed and on the bench when two leads of the FET were shorted by a tool on my bench which destroyed the FET and the PWM chip. I opted to replace the whole thing thinking this was the issue anyways, wrong again. One side does work now. I am still working on this so look for more information soon.
