I keep trying to put disks in on the B (record side) and it keeps saying no disks...whether blank cdrs, bought cds, a cd cleaner. I can't get an email to RCA to ask them and I don't know what to do. THe manual doesn't give any kind of troubleshooting for it. I have turned the unit off completely for the time being. Any help I can get would be appreciated.
Make sure disk says "Audio CD Recordable". I ran into this problem when I first tried to burn a cd. It's on page 16 of the manual.
I am using the came cdrs that I have recorded on for over 100 times. And again I have put store bought prerecorded music cds and they will not read either. They all come up NO DISK after attempting to read them.
Please, I have a RCA cdrw120 recorder 2 years ago, and then, today, I got troubles with it because I couldn't to burn a cdr audio, the same ones that I always burn. The message is: no audio cd... what can I do? wow!, I don't want to think that I have to buy another one again.. do you think that trouble is repairly?.......please,answer me... thanks, Luis Font
Luis This info I found at the RCA web site. Check it out and see if you can find any answers there or the phone number for RCA or Thomsen. It may be as simple as using using different cdr's. Good luck. Dear Customer:

Does anyone know where I can purchase a fully operational RCA CDRW 121 player/recorder. Does anyone know where I can purchase a new RCA cd mechanism part# 268558? I am not able to record externally or disc to disc with my own CDRW 121. It's about 7 years old, but I love it. RCA has said that the recorder and parts for the recorder are no longer available.
I am a band member and at all our practice's I record the band live with my RCA CDRW 121. I know I should be updating with new technological advances but I can't find any other CD recorders that offer the (2) mic inputs, each a separate channel. This unit is some of the 1st stand alone analog recorders that hit the market around 2000-2001. I've never seen (2) mic inputs offered by any other company. I too have experienced a few minor disc reading problems but once you find a disc that works well stick with it and excerise patience. Is everyone out there burning cd's on a computer? I hope not because that will signal the end to the beloved stand alone analog recorders.If you look at the affordable recorders on the market now, they don't even have (1) mic input! I have been told by several sales people that SONY RCD-W500C is about the only recorder still on the market, and that they are considering phasing it out because of the high use of recording via computers. I am sad to hear that. Once again for all you readers and posters that are not happy with your RCA CDRW 121 if you want to sell it I'm interested. I would buy a newer model by almost any name brand if I could locate one with (2) separate mic inputs each a separate channel. I don't see them available. If anyone knows of something please respond.
Hi Robert, thanks for writing, I received your message yesterday. I showed my RCA CDRW 120 Recorder to a technician and he told me that it's very complicated to fix the problem because it's more expensive than to buy another one. I took my equipment and since then I use it for playing cds only. I understand that you want to record the music of your band analogically, I think it's a good option. Do you want I sell my RCA CDRW 120 Recorder to do it a reparation?, remember that my equipment has troubleshooting in the recording. Where do you live?. I live in Puerto Rico and I don't know how much is the shipping. What is the name of your band?.. Ok, I am fit to sell the equipment but you had to know about it. Luis Font
I am also having trouble with my RCA Thomson CDRW 121 CD Player and Recorder. I haven't used it for about a year and when I hooked it up I am only getting sound from the left "A" side. When I record a disc in the "B" side it shows that it is recording and I can hear it. After I finalize the disc and try to listen to it, it shows that it is playing but there is no sound. I put the disc in side "A" and it plays with sound. Is it just a dirty lens that is causing the trouble in the recording "B" side?
