  1. The internal batteries are used to store date/time and so on. It´s important to take a look at these because of the age.many have drained out and this won´t do any good to the internals I need to order a LiP8 cells myself now ;-)
  2. hi there´s a german software that does the job pretty well. just insert pictures , select case & Disc and you´re done. I need to take a look where it is saved.Don´t know about copyright issues though.
  3. the adapter you mentioned ( that was in the retail package as well ) is only for line out to an amplifier as suggested in the manual. The unit´s jack will accept 3 & 4 pole Headphones
  4. lid

    Sure you can pull it off and take a spare part to replace it. Maybe i got one.. i look into my spares storage and reply asap.
  5. really sorry for your loss. If you want that equipment to be sold to a caring new owner you should upload some pictures..maybe add some price suggestions of yours so we could sort it out. Hope you even read all these new replies as its been some time ago that you posted ?
  6. Write protect tab is closed ? .. yea just asking :-D so what happens when you record ? Does the Walkman read Discs at all or just a blank Disc after recording ? If Disc is blank after recording send me a picture of the openen unit where the upper inside can be seen.That´s where the OWH is , the one who is responsible for making the record happen. I´ve seen so many units with bend OWH´s where , as i suggest , people had low battery or sort of and didn´t press stop after recording and openend the unit violently. That way one busts the OWH because its still onto the Disc and gets bend when ejecting the Disc manually. Does it still play MD and Hi-MD ? If answer is no -> does it play pre-recorded ? ( Factory made MDs )
  7. one can compare Atrac with mp3 as they work very similar. The decoding is less besides the encoding takes it to the limit. If im not completely wrong the decoding is the same for flac as the compression only takes place when the file gets created.
  8. No button on the remote because it´s only accessible through the menu.I´ve sold all my 940´s and don´t worry about it :-) I just searched my JA20´s remote but can´t find it.That unit is not hooked to any of my stereos so im not surprised i´ve put the remote to storage. what surprises do you mean? Concerning these 2 buttons ok but otherwise ? What bothers me the most is the compatiblity between all MD remotes.If only they had made a 1-2-3 switch like on my Cd Changers remotes.. but that´s not the big deal. I simply put 1 MD unit to each system so im fine :-D
  9. i´d like to see that picture.. if it will be uploaded :-)
  10. Of course not.The DO out button is only for Models like JB920 / JA50 . Iirc only the JA50 has both buttons.All other Models have DO out or Filter button. The 33 remote is from the JB930 isn´t it ? That Deck has no such function, only the Filter
  11. now that´s nice. very appreciated . Do you know the menu from the LAM-X1 too ? I just got my Unit and didn´t look into the menu tree very much. Do you know of any Service Manual for the Sony Hi-MD units ?
  12. happy new year :-) that was what i have read.Kind of misleading isn´t it ? It´s M-Crew that looks up the Cddb for CD. I understood this wrong / maybe because my english sucks :-) After all there´s no advantage for the PC3.I can title and get Cd info with SoS the same way.. So time to find a new purpose for the PC3.
  13. yes. As i din never try this by myself i can only guess that this works. I´m pretty sure i read about this here in the Forums. You could give it a try and tell me if it´s worth to setup a 3rd machine running 32Bit Winxp :-)
  14. i don´t mean CDDB to the Cd drive.I remember this was done to the MD. SoS and the RH1 can´t do this .You have to import a MD to get CDDB data.
  15. Hi happy new year :-) I read the whole thread and wanted to ask if there are some using the PC3 ? I got a fully boxed PC3 lying around and never got to test it´s PC connection. Now i remember that i once read about it being the only unit capable of getting Track information through CDDB directly to the Disc. Is that a fact ? Anyway all my machines run Win10/64 so i would have to setup a new one to get M-Crew run ..?
  16. Hey Rusty would you swap some of the MD10th Discs ? I could offer you the cable you need ;-) I would like to see a picture of the Discs if possible ? Send me a message when you´re interested
  17. why not use this ? http://ravn.net/md/hi-mdcal.htm
  18. Do you want to sell it ? If so send me a pm ;-)
  19. Hi there ;-) i have to disagree concerning the A3+352. If you play them on a Deck ( Onkyo Hi-MD Deck MD133 in my case ) the Sound is as close to CD as Atrac3+ can get.I tested some files with Hi-SP vs. A3+352 and to me the later one wins each time. I use to import CDs , which i´v ripped with EAC before, to SoS and transfer them straight to a reformatted 80min Disc in A3+ 352. That´s about the best choice to be made if you own a Hi-MD Deck and want the best possible SQ. Mind you the SQ of a portable is far inferior when playing back A3+ so maybe that´s why some don´t spot a difference. It´s a bit disappointing the Decks can´t record all the A3+ modes but at least the play them just fine :-) Just my experience.. others may or will see this different
  20. try another USb port.I´ve had this before and could succeed that way.
  21. i just thought there was a seperated standbye circuit so if this was the Fuse for the mains you could be lucky. waiting for a good news :-)
  22. most likely it is not. In fact it is a real pain to open these mini systems. I´ve had trouble with several before The PSU should be on the back of the Unit. IF it´s just a fuse that´s defect you could be lucky. Did you try to reset as per manual -> 1 Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet. 2 Reconnect the power cord to a wall outlet. 3 press Power 4 Press TUNER BAND, CD EJECT and REC MODE at the same time. Look at the manual for failure codes @page 51 here ->http://pdf.crse.com/manuals/4233759133.pdf
  23. maybe a worn out or defect fuse on the PSU ? Do you hear a clicking relais when you try to power on ?
  24. Hi there I asked this some time before but sadly i´ve never stumbled across any answers. Most people owning any sort of Onkyo Hi-MD machines will know that they´re very fragile concerning the MD Drive. So far i´ve seen and collected many units that obviously suffer from the same Problem.They seem to be out of alignment :-/ The Discs won´t even eject when they fail to read - this goes so far that even a press of the standby button don´t get the unit to standby ; or better said the unit shuts down but the MD Drive continues to read and the Laser tries to focus while the Sled drives to its parking position and so on. Does nobody else than me cares about fixing these units? I´ve had success with a FR-N7 where i changed the Flexribbon from a 105FX.It finally reads Hi-MD 1GB Discs but that´s about it. So the first thing to achieve is to finally get a service manual or at least know the button combinations. I suggest there´s some japanese Members here too that possibly could gather that information through websearch ? Any help would be highly appreciated :-)
  25. alright i took a look into the SM for the mentioned Deck above. It seems to me there is no button config to enter the Test mode rather than soldering a resistance to the Board. It reads interesting though as there´s a screw mentioned to calibrate the Spindle Motor.A defective Spindle Motor will lead to an impedance Problem where it can lead to Audio dop outs ! Now as i lack an oszilloskop i will try my luck by just messing around with a non functional unit. The whole process is described @page 28/47 Sadly there are figures missing that are most important for the soldering of measurements :-/
