  1. How to clear NV ERR on MZ-N505 NET MD

    Welcome back! :-)
  2. I picked up a five pack of the "Power Bank" cases Stephen links above, it was about $2.50US.  Then grabbed a four pack of the LiPo cells for around $12.00US.   They work pretty well, but I would be surprised if the rated 2200mAh of the cells is right, they don't seem to work too well to recharge a mobile phone.  It seems they will only raise the level of my phone 15% when the phone battery is rated at 2400mAh.
  3. LIP-4WM Battery Rebuild.

    Very nice indeed Jimma! I have ordered two of the small Lipo batteries to perform this on a couple of my unusable cells.   Great work!
  4. MZ-N10 Battery replacement

    Nice work Sphig, thanks for sharing.
  5. MiniDisc JE520 playback problem

    This is actually a very common problem ... The JE520 is SP only, record and playback.  The "home recorded" disc is most likely recorded on some newer device and contains MDLP content. In later units Sony added the ability to record longer on a disc of the same size at a lower quality. You will most likely be able to access the recordings on the disc using an MD player capable of decoding MDLP.
  6. Sonicstage 3.1

    I have one of these great little units.  I suspect the mod was a Sony provided firmware update to allow the unit to play MP3 files. I recall seeing details for sending it in to Sony for the update, you couldn't download and flash it yourself ... I have found that it sounds far superior when playing HiSP (256k ATRAC3plus). The unit definitely works using the SonicStage Ultimate version available in the downloads section here.
  7. Sony MDS-JB 940 Static Mini Disc Player (fault)

    Snap a couple of pictures of the unit internals before you disassemble to use for reassembly.
  8. Should I stop buying MD units?

    You need to stock up on blanks too!
  9. MZ-NH1 Transfer Cable.

    I have always used the two interchangeably.
  10. MZ-R50 battery - mod possible?

    I have two R50 units, love them.  I have few batteries for them from over the years, fortunately also have 2xAA side cars for portable power.  I have smaller lighter units for mobile use however. Some mod could be rigged I am sure.
  11. Debating on downsizing my herd

    It is a very nice collection!   You could offer them up for sale here, or sell them off on eBay.
  12. MDS-JA50ES on ebay

    I was watching that bluecrab and meant to post when I saw that price, you were right on the money!
  13. Problems with MDS-JB980 QS and JVC discs?

    Now that's a difficult offer to refuse!  I, for one, can attest to Stephen's repair skills.  freddyjollo's idea makes sense as well though, maybe you could could replace it with one not as nice (or as expensive) until is is fixed, then you'll have two working decks...
  14. MDS-JA50ES on ebay

    I wish I were in a position myself, but I have to watch and enjoy the show from the outside. :-)
  15. MDS-JA50ES on ebay

    That's a pretty funny description and so true!  Interesting stuff about Gary too.  I am watching this one!
