Philips CDR796 CD Recorder

I have a a Philips CD recorder as detailed above. When turned on neither CD tray will open. The screen is asking me to insert disc but when I try to open either tray I get the message 'TRAYS LOCKED'. I have read the manual that came with it but could not find a referance to this. Are you able to tell me how to unlock thje trays please. Regards

You power off then power back on while holding down the fast forward and rewind buttons on the recording side simultaneously. The display moves through a sequence of numbers and the trays will then open.

Philips CDR796 not recording

Owner's Manual and Service Manual in the link. Old machine, has to be CDR(W)

Insert a CDR(W) which is absolutely free of scratches and
dust particles in the CD recorder tray.

Where can I buy it? ( CDR 796 )

These types of questions are best served by search engines that yield immediate answers.

There ARE newer models that are still available. I always shop eBay for older stuff.

Availability will change from time to time.

Phillips CDR 570

Let's start with an assumption... you're using ReWriteable discs.

What specific message do you get when you try to unfinalize it?

When finishing a recording, what does it display instead of "update" when you stop?

Playback tray keeps ejecting when trying to load disc

I spent the whole night trying to fix this, all I could find was an unsafe workaround, involving this:

1/ Opening it up
2/ Find that upon forcing it in the the laser was not meeting with the ******* cd
3/ Sticking my finger at the bottom of the tray and lifting it up as soon as it loaded.

Now it works but only becuase I have to do the 1-3 everytime. Phillips also withdrew the Service Manual which is different to the normal one.

I could have gone and just brought a compatible drive from alibaba but no, phillips aren't having any of my Polish diy know how meddling with thier top secret **** you know what I mean?

Trays locked

Hi, I had the same problem and i found out that if you hold down the fast forward and the rewind buttons with the power on and off button it will reset. It took me a couple of goes but after a while it worked. When you do it keep all of the buttons held down and a series of numbers flash for about a minute then it will reset. Good luck, Jeff.
