  1. Seriously, guys don't even consider using 70% Isopropanol. You should use only pure (99% or 100% on the label). I dread to think what is in the 30% in the bottle above. And it is almost never the head cleaning problem. There are a gazillion things which can cause failure to read. Most common is (gradual) loss of laser power.
  2. More likely something got bounced around in transit, and finally came loose with use. I'm guessing the ribbon cable between the front panel and the rest of the machine.
  3. Does the Sharp have a hold switch on the remote? The Sony remotes are entirely disabled if HOLD is set to on.
  4. At those prices I think I might be saving my pennies for a 3D-printer.............
  5. That's weird. Anyway you do not need any software except Windows to recognize a valid drive under Windows. HiMD disks are valid Windows drives. Be very very careful, do not try to transfer "stuff" or alter the drive, even by a single byte (or bit) - you will lose all audio files most likely***. So - see if you can see it in the list of Windows drives (J: or K: or whatever). It won't show up unless there is a Hi-MD formatted disk in the player. **** Note: you CANNOT use write protection (tab) on a HiMD disk - all that happens is that Sonic Stage will refuse to load it.
  6. Just the screen. I cannot speak generally, but that has been the perceived point of failure over and over again. A lot of the functionality is built into being able to use that screen. Service mode, for example.
  7. Sorry to say but the initial diagnosis was correct - the screen was simply dead. Sony never even sold the OLED part separately, the only thing listed is the complete (compleat?) assembly.
  8. Unfortunately no. We'd have to get in touch with Eric Woudenberg, I think he's "webmaster" here though has nothing to do with this site (title from when the two were joined). Sorry, I didn't get as far as the last 2 pages. I printed the durned thing out and spiral bound it and was going to look later. I will do some cleanup. In a hurry at the minute.
  9. Thanks for that. It's now posted in downloads: I tried three different sizes of file, original (35MB), On-screen (3MB) and E-book (9MB). The 3MB was a bit fuzzy close up, so I settled on the 9MB version. As the owner of MD-105FX I am personally grateful, since my only manual for that is Japanese. It's not quite the same deck, but I am sure we will find that this version will do for both machines. Cheers
  10. Version 1.0.0


    This is the official manual for MD-133 from Onkyo, scanned by user zzzuppp. It probably is correct for the MD-105FX, which is a different deck. Until now we had only seen manuals in Japanese.

  12. You did? How did you manage that? I cannot accept 35MB of email.
  13. Hi Stephen


    Here's a download link to my Onkyo MD133/105FX English manual pdf. Hope you can reduce it below the current 35Mb




  14. If you have, for example, a dropbox link to the file, I will process it and make it a bit smaller. Should be well less than 10M, maybe less than 5. Please don't try to use email (or upload to the site) for this. Thanks Stephen
  15. What a nice unit! And for those of you that are considering features, it has MDLP, which I would consider very important before splurging on such a purchase. The only thing missing (surprising, as nearly every Sony unit still has one) is the lack of a digital (optical or coax) input. But those with a real deck somewhere won't care about that.
