Well, I may be, or may not.

Yes, I have some experience in repairing Sony MD decks, but no other makes, and the success of a possible repair depends very much on the available spare parts as well.

I happened to know this seller, so I asked privately how deep the problem is, i.e., whether the unit can properly record in MD mode, and here is his answer (also updated on the listing page, and price dropped to 35€ in parallel, though he took off the remote):

”IT DOES NOT READ MINI DISCS CURRENTLY. This needs a new MD (Hi-MD) Drive. this comes WITHOUT the remote. SPECIAL PRICE”

That make me rethink of what phamcu (vietnamese elctronic engineer) told me: "There are no spare parts in VN, I cannot buy your MZ-RH1".

Have to admit to buying it - received today - tested - working on standard discs, not working on HiMd, opened up the unit and cleaned and lubricated the worm drive (laser sled).

Happily playing HiMd discs now.

Real bargain
