  1. Hi, I recently was given my Grandad’s old Sony Handycam video Hi8 ccd-TR780E with the battery pack that plugs directly into the mains. I’m looking however for the portable battery model so I can purchase one. I’ve looked around and haven’t seen any advertisement explicitly saying it’s compatible with my camera. If anyone has any idea which model of battery I need it would be really appreciated. thanks
  2. Hey all, Recently came across a NetMD MiniDisc player (MZ-NE410) and was having some trouble with it. While it does work and plays discs fine, it seems to have a problem staying on. Whenever even a bit of pressure is put on the lid of the player (whether there be a disc in it or not), the unit shuts off. I thought it was a problem with the battery compartment but after trying multiple batteries and different methods, this phenomenon only seems to only happen when putting pressure on the lid. Any ideas? Thanks.

Recently I’ve acquired a Sony MZ-R30 Minidisc player. It’s a kinda fun format, but the fact that I had to use a 2AA case in order to enjoy my music was quite disappointing. After fiddling around with the
  4. EASY TO DO, LONG LASTING, EXTERNAL POWER SOURCE FOR YOUR MD Thought I'd share my little invention, if you've had the same frustrating problem with a reliable long lasting power source for MD: Just take two large D-batteries (1,5V) and place them together on top of each other (in an own made toilet paper cardboard tube with correct diameter for example). Remember the lower battery's + pole must be in contact with the upper battery's - pole. So 1,5V + 1,5V = 3V, exactly what my MD recorder/player needs. Then, find a cable that fits to your MD's DC input jack (you can test it
  5. I thought this would be a really cool thread. I want everyone to post photos or explanations of any DIY mods you have done to your equipment. This includes any changes that you made to render a device different from factory stock. Example adding things to the circuits, modifying the body, battery mods...etc...
  6. Edit**** I started a new post about the LIP-8 batteries because they are specific to the MZ-R50 (LIP-8 battery) and impossible to find in the UK at least, the LIP-12 for the MZ-R30 is a different matter, these readily available at present. Hi guys, I know these batteries are now getting almost impossible to find in the UK - most certainly the whole unit LIP-8. The actual replacement 14650 battery (inside the LIP-8) is easy enough to find, however it is difficult to mount into the LIP-8 as they do not have tabs or tails to solder to (WARNING:- never ever solder Li-ion batteries - it takes
  7. I have an Mz-M100, that works with when plugged in, or with an external battery, I bought anew rechargeable battery that used to charge, but I'm not sure if it's an issue with the battery door not making good contact or what. The battery is brand new,I only used it a few times. It's when you hold the cancel button to start charging, I see the charge symbol briefly , then it goes away. The charger obviously works, because I can run off that. When I 1st got it i had some issues where I would have to open and close the battery door several times before it would charge, but now nothing. Has anyone
  8. I started a post asking why extremely dead batteries on the RH-10 would not start charging. I read on a post that if you attach a charged AA via the piggyback battery holder and use the unit until the AA is drained, then the AA will charge the NIMH battery enough to allow the RH-10 to recognize it and charge it fully. In regards to these instructions....THEY WORK FLAWLESSLY!!!!!!! Thank you soooooooooooooo much whoever suggested that!!! Sean
  9. Dear All, I've just rediscovered my MZ-RH10 as I needed to do some more recording. I also remembered why I hadn't been using it recently. The battery life appears to have gone down the pan. I bought a new Sony battery from the Sony shop here about six months ago, thinking it must be that the batteries I had were dead, but that still seems to have the same problem. I have no issue with getting the little 'charging' graphic and text on direct plugging in, or using the cradle. Sometimes it vanishes after a few minutes, other times it stays on. Either way, when it goes off and I try t
  10. Hello Ev1, I have about 4 batteries (all bought within the last year brand new) They all arrived dead and I could only get two to charge, one I had to play with for a bit to get it to start charging. It seems on VERYDEAD batteries that the RH-10 has a very tough time charging them. Any suggestions on how to get the other two to start charging? I have managed to get one of them to make the RH-10 display the charging screen for about 1 minute, then it goes blank and stops. I am currently sitting here and pressing the "stop/charge" button every minute hoping that it will start charging o
  11. Hello I'm having a problem with my Sony VAIO model: vpcsc1afm. The issue is my battery has spotty performance. The computer runs perfect for when the battery is working but other times I will be using it and the battery light will start blinking and my computer will tell me that the battery isn't recognized (0% not charging). After the computer shuts down I can't turn it back on without taking out the battery and putting it back in. It's also happened when I was just charging it with the computer off. It will be charging and the battery light will start blinking and won't be able to turn on ti
  12. can you use the mz-rh1 without the battery only with usb power? i just bought one and the battery is on the way from HK I was just wondering thanks for the help.
  13. Ok, I'm a bit of a tinkerer by nature which is fortunate since it's helped me resurrect some old Sony/Sharp portable MD recorders. I've also recently been working on some custom Li-Po battery/charger projects. While looking at parts, and listening to one of my Sharp MS-702 recorders, the battery died..well that sucks. I guess I could plug it in, but I had it in my cargo pocket with headphones so I can just get up and go. I've only got a couple of the batteries left that actually worked so I looked on E-Bay and it seems they are getting harder to find (i.e. few listings). The battery is a
