Took my NH1 out of storage and I was devastated to find the usb to md cable had disintegrated. I plugged it into the pc anyway to try and charge the walkman which I then remembered would not work. It put the NH1 into pc mode and it kept on trying to read the disc. I then forcefully unplugged it while the disc was spinning and used the docking station to try and charge it. Unfortunately the AC charging cable was falling to bits too (lol) and the md walkman reported a long 'busy please wait a moment' message. Me being impatient, popped the disc out cause i was dying to listen to something on it having had it in storage for 5 years, possibly more. Subsequent attempts to load the disc just made the nh1 make grinding noises. I then tried to trouble shoot the error by recording to a blank disc. It recorded about 2minutes then reported a disc read error. I assume the 2min mark was the limit of the memory buffer. I examined the disc tray as i inserted and removed the disc to check that the cover was opening properly and it looked like it was. I then used a pen to shove the disc head to the side furthest from the motor, let it try loading the disc again then I opened it to see if the position of the lens had move. It hadn't. So next I shoved the lens head to the side closest to the motor, closed the lid and it read the disc ok!!! I'm so happy I didn't break it so if youre walkman is having problems reading all discs the lens might not be in the right starting position for it to work. Not sure why it doesnt reset its position when a disc is inserted. The sound on the NH1 is sooo good. Right now I am listening to a disc I recorded in 2001 and the sound smashes the dac on my $1k phone.
davelee1982 posted a topic in MinidiscHello everyone. I am new to this forum, and I've come here in need of help. I've just purchased an MZ-E900 on ebay (listed as functional), however upon receiving it I cannot get it to play discs. Basically I pop in a standard Sony disc (both SP and LP2) and the unit spins up for a couple seconds and then spins down... I press play, and the little operation light comes on and the unit spins up for about a second and then nothing (it spins down). I've got both the fully charged gumstick in there along with the external dry cell, so I'm pretty sure power isn't the issue. I've heard people mention a common "seek problem", and I was wondering if this might be that and if that is possible to fix... Does anyone have any insight on this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
