Pioneer PDR-609 recorder


2007-12-31 5:39 pm
I wonder if anyone can help regarding an issue I have with my Pioneer PDR-609 cd recorder ?

It records perfectly but has a problem with finalizing the discs - It performs the "finalize" task taking approximately 2 minutes and 7 seconds, however, it then will not come out of finalize mode.

The red finalize led stays lit and the mechanism can be heard making whirring sounds - The only way to take the player out of finalize mode is to unplug it from the AC wall socket.

Has anybody else come across this issue with their PDR-609 - Would appreciate any comments/suggestions.
