During live recordings at church services, the recorder will stop recording, like its on pause. It will stop at various times, from about 3 minutes to as much as 20 minutes, into the recording. The counter will stop keeping time, volume level indicator will stop moving, however the play/pause will not be blinking like its on pause, but pressing the play/pause button twice will get it recording again. This does not happen every time we set it to record but it happens often enough to make it very frustrating. Please respond back with a helpful answer as this has been a problem for some time and if the issue isn't fixed the machine will be scrapped.

You can try computer software like Nero or Roxio and finalize the disc as it is. This is exactly why I had advised Churches that went from reliable cassette tapes to CDR to put UPS units on the CD recorders as they do not react too well to power outages. If you were using an Open Reel there would be very little loss of the recorded signal.
First off I assume you have the manual for you're 5700. if not a PDF copy is here http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000027911.pdf
Assuming you have a standalone tape deck that has phono inputs and outputs connection and recording recording should be easily achieved. Forget the coaxial unless of course your tape deck has digital outputs. Assuming it hasn't just connect the two output sockets from the tape dec which may be labelled REC out left and REC out right to the Line in (L) and Line (R) of the CD recorder. The physical setup is now complete. The increment level they refer to in the manual offers you a choice of 3 final decibel output levels in other words how loud it will be when it is finally recorded onto the disc.
the last paragraph on page 16 is relevant to the setup described above.
Page 15 of your manual is all you need to achieve tape transfer to CD. follow the steps below and choose ANALOG the source to be played is your tape deck so once the process has begun press the play button on your tape deck and you should get a decent recording. Leave everything else at their default settings until you get a better understanding of how to tweak your recordings. Personally I transfer audio tapes directly to my PC and Audio edit them until they are perfect but I've been doing this for years.
here's a snippet
To record from an external source: 1. Turn power ON. 2. Place a recordable audio disc (CD-R or CD-RW) label side up in TRAY II. 3. Close TRAY II. (When a blank disc is placed in TRAY II, the display will show BLANK.) 4. Press INPUT until the source you want to record is selected. DIGITAL OPTICAL: record a source connected to the DIGITAL IN (OPTICAL) terminal. DIGITAL COAXIAL: record a source connected to the DIGITAL IN (COAXIAL) terminal. ANALOG: record a source connected to the analog LINE IN jacks. 5. Select the desired mode of track division (track number assignment) by pressing the MANUAL/AUTO button (see the ADVANCED RECORDING section for more information). 6. Press the RECORD button. The unit enters record pause mode. The PAUSE [ ] icon and REC blink on the display. 7. Press the PLAY (ENTER) [ ] button of TRAY II to start recording. 8. Play the source to be recorded. • During digital recording, if the input signal stops for 5 seconds, recording will stop. • During analog recording, if the input signal stops for 20 seconds, recording will stop. • If the unit detects copy-prohibit signals during recording, CAN’T COPY appears on the display and recording is stopped. To stop recording: Press the STOP  button To temporarily pause recording: Press the PAUSE [ ] button. Remember that every time recording is paused or stopped, a new track number will be assigned.
How to Record:
1. Make sure HOLD switch (on side of unit with pocket clip) is set to off position (slide to right is off - to left would be hold)
2. For best results set unit with mic(rophone) which is on top of unit toward sound source and press REC/STOP button (Top button on front of unit just below LCD display). Recording will begin and will be indicated on LCD display.
> Red Record LED will be on and the message number, recording time will be displayed on the LCD.
3. To stop recording, press REC/STOP button one time.
* If no other buttons are pressed within 1 minute at stop position, it will power off automatically.
4. Pause during recording by simply pressing MODE/PAUSE button- press button again to resume.
There is a Voice Operated System (VOS) Recording button on left side also. You can record with voice activation to conserve recording space but I have found that you lose a portion of the recorded sound as it activates and if there is no sound for a very few minutes the unit powers off and you will get nothing further recorded. I recomend just keeping VOS in off position.
5. To erase a recording: Select the message number you want to erase and while it is stopped (the message number will appear in LCD with the length of recording showing also)
Press and hold the ERASE button until the LCD begins blinking "ERASE" then, while it's blinking simply press the erase button again and the recording will be erased.
6. To play back a recorded message find your message by "toggling" the switch on the right side of the unit that says INDEX. That switch is the fast forward/reverse play etc. To Play simply push the switch in. This button/switch takes a little practice to use but the Play portion is straight forward. Use the front buttons to pause and stop during playback.
i am having the same problem, but mine occurs about every 3 minutes. i get a 1 second pause in the audio that shows up in the recordings as well as live. it doesnt seem to matter if it is hd or not, but very frustrating.
