    JB930/940/980,MZ-RH1, Sharp MD-MT88
  1. I wonder how many original ipods with the mini hard discs in them are still working? I have too many portables about 3 sharps ones and quite a few Sony - I hunted around Argos when they were selling them cheap: I was thinking at the time maybe they last 3 years each so thats me set up for 9 years or so. Well I am still on the first Sharp - it looks very scrappy now with the metal finish rubbed off in places and the buttons once metalised now showing the plastic underneath, but it still works as well as it did goodness knows how many years ago. Any one want to buy a nos Sharp recorder? no only kidding.
  2. MZ-RH1 (MZ-M200) Amazon MP3 256 quality

    how do you transfer MP3 to the MZ-RH1? when I used Sonic Stage it converted them first.
  3. Minidisc backlights on units

    well the MZ-RH1 the last had an oled display that lit up but no back light. My other cheap Sharp/Sony dont just the original Kindle type display - transreflective display. I think the remote of the MZ-RH1 does have a back light.
  4. Sony ( atrac) Hard disc deck players

    NAC-HD1 - thats not it. The one I remember was quite slim and now quite ancient was an atrac system ( only) no cd I think was a net md device not sure
  5. Sony ( atrac) Hard disc deck players

    can any one remember the full name of the 2 sony ( atrac) hard disc playback decks? I think they started with HD or some thing and would like to track one down some time or other on a totally unrelated matter I came across this site that may interest some here https://sites.google.com/site/crazyforminidisc/
  6. Help Needed: Music Recorded to Minidisc (Will Pay)

    I dont understand your logic - you admit that minidisc is dead & no one has them, yet want to use it as a publicity giveaway - will your prospective clients be able to play them? I would have thought that cds or usb pendrives would be better?
  7. MD portables that use AA batteries?

    Sony MZ-B10 takes 2 AA and is a minideck has built in mic and decent size screen - is meant as a dictophone I suppose or for taking lectures but is a nice general purpose device also other than sony Sharp has a few - MD--MT88 MT-99 metal bodied that are very reliable and decent displays - all MDLP - no tone control, have mic input
  8. MiniDisc Deck Disk Eject Fix

    well the real belts are really tiny and thin cant believe the real belts that good, just expensive
  9. JB940 AMS KNOB

    It seems the AMS knob dont work when you press it to accept choices. This was a 2nd hand device I have had for some time, one of 4 I have so dont know if it was always like that. The rotational function works just not the push one. Any ideas?
  10. is it true these decks dont have digital out? One reason I stopped considering them. Otherwise would be a dream machine
  11. A portable Sony MD player

    Sony NH600/700. ( has Hi-MD and also NetMD) are sound flexible AA battery systems as long as you have the eye sight to read the small display
  12. MZ-R55 fried

    if you used the wrong power supply then its probably dead? just get another from ebay?
  13. Which earbuds for my NH700

    maybe not ear buds but the sennheiser PX100 or what ever the latest version is. Good over the ear portable headphones, very sensitive. about £40
  14. MD eject help required

    well not quite sure what that is. The disc goes in and out thats all? you are refering to the head going up/down? well I would have thought the mechanism to lift the head also ejects the disc. Any way it seems the little belt is the culprit for most of the ejection issues here it is really tiny and wonder is it lasts so long, I dont think any one else has had another type of mechanism failure here. Sad that a deck can last for decades and end up as junk just becuase a tiny bit of rubber band cant be found. I bought some similar size rubber bands in bulk meant for craftwork, making bracelets , "hair accessories", to see if they would do, havent tried them yet but got 100's of them for a few £ as sooner or later the proper belts wont be available? when I replaced mine I had to remove temporarily a little spring on the side that keeps the top and bottom together ( JB940 deck ) as I decided to give myself more space so opened up the mechanism - some people manage to poke it into place thru the mouth. But be careful as some one already broke the fragile head in replacing the belt by poking around
  15. MD eject help required

    sounds like another case of the tiny rubber eject belt needs replacing. seems to be happening a lot now. I suppose given how old they are now not surprsing. so Amater you need to look thru the posts on this matter - there are quite a few. You can get the belt from Ebay for a few £, if you intend to keep the decks some time get a spare. replacing the belt is a bit fiddly but not too hard: some are able to do it from the frontt I took the mechanism out and opened it up but you do have to be careful not to snap the fragile head eg http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-MDS-JE780-MDS-JE440-MD-SJB940-MDS-JE470-Sony-MiniDisc-Loading-Belt-/201930827021?hash=item2f0403e50d:g:XIQAAOxy63FSz9VE http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Riemen-Courroie-Sony-MDS-JE470-MDS-JE770-MDS-JE780-MiniDisc-Deck-Load-Tray-Belt-/272657868856?hash=item3f7bace838:g:GuAAAOSwB09YH4p7
