  1. I am looking for uncirculated live recordings, or bootlegs if you wish to call them that way.
  2. Dear Lawrence, what a great movie. It was a real pleasure to watch it with my headphones. Also the filming and editing was very appealing. So many interesting facts without losing yourself into tech talk. I honour your dedication. All the best for the future

  5. A friend of mine told me about a guy selling his RH1. I told him that I was interested and that we should get in touch asap. Just found out today that he sold the unit for 150 Euros. This is an outrage!

  7. Both sfpb and MDietrich, thank you for your comments. I will take your suggestions into account in terms of the battery related problem. First I will recharge my gumsticks using the special charger which a friend of mine will borrow. Second i check the connections and may fix the compartment doors using the copper foil. If all of that wont help for any of my units the problem might be the unit itself. Another hint for that can be that the same ticking sound problem appears when there is no gumstick inserted and the unit runs on the charger. I'll keep you updated since i might not be the only one experiencing those problems.
  8. Thank you for your suggestion. The contacts are fine and for most units there is no corrosion. The problem is: when I fully charge a gumstick in my black R90 it works perfectly fine in that unit. When I change the same gumstick to the R55, R91 or R900 the unit will behave like I said before.
  9. Sold the following units to make room for new ones:
  10. There must be some sort of virus spreading among my Sony units. As a matter of fact not only the R91 but also the R900, as well as the two R55s showed the same sympton today. The problem lies in the battery level which as for the old gumsticks is constantly low regardless of the level displayed. Since I am pretty fed up with recharging and re-checking the malfunctioning gumsticks I decided to only run my units on the battery packs from now on. So the ticking sound must be a result of the unit trying to get into the load mode without having enough power from the gumstick battery.
  11. No. Except for Victor which released blanks in 2013. Credits to our forum member Sescoscuba for his research on that: https://sites.google.com/site/crazyforminidisc/the-earlier-period-1992---1995-blanks/year-2013
  12. What do you mean by "servo hitting the spot?"
  13. Thank you for your answer. I checked the contacts. Those are fine. Like I said, that ticking sound also appears when there is no battery inserted and the unit runs on the AC charger.
  14. Its was just recently that my R91 started to behave weird. When trying to start the unit with the charger plugged in nothing but a gentle tick appears. Also the unit does not recognize or reload any of my fully charged gumstick batteries (which have been reloaded using my other R90s). It won't even make that ticking sound on battery power. When using the battery extension pack the unit works fine. The ticking noise might be the key to the problem. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance
