  1. PhilippeC - Thanks for the link - very interesting to see
  2. IMHO - You are missing nothing (unless I misunderstood the question) - external DACs do not reprocess already processed material - they simply take the input stream of digits and convert it to analogue - this is how you have your JA22ES set up - and yes, it is a great DAC.
  3. Still working? - Happy to help - Great stack!
  4. Hi - I simply cut the tags on the old battery and soldered the new battery to the stubs left behind
  5. Good story Matt - and you live in an amazing part of the world to wander and to wonder....
  6. PaoloB - Yes please let us know more about sourcing the spur gear.....
  7. I'll try to get hold of a donor JB940 - Thanks
  8. From UK - a donor machine would be good if I could find one at a good price
  9. Kris/Philippe - I desperately need a Digital board for a JA333ES - do either of you know where I might get one? - Page 50 in service manual
  10. Don't know if this helps - found a copy in my archives.....
  11. The mainboard battery for the deck is a flat topped AA - at a squeeze you can push fit a standard rechargeable AA (NiCd or NiMH) - they will actually go in, just persevere - I have fitted to six of my units. The flat topped versions are available on ebay. The Lip8 carcass contains a standard 14650 battery - just open the carcass along the seam (there are a couple of self locking tabs) - carefully remove the old battery by pulling off the tags with pliers and insert the new one - no need to solder, the battery will make contact well enough to work properly - reassemble the carcass and that's it. Lip-8s are almost impossible to find.
  12. Component shown looks like a surface mount fuse (SMD)
  13. Looks like the plastic moulded shaft from an intermediate gear on the traverse (sled) drive train has broken from the plastic mount and needs stripdown to repair. Seen similar symptoms and in each case, that was the work needed and successfully completed, but tough to do properly..
  14. That's great news Kris - a fine achievement - time now to relax and enjoy!
  15. Kris - If the one you ordered does not fit - then message me - I have spare units that I can strip for one - you are welcome to it if I can help.
  16. Not just suspect Kris - absolutely no good at all - need to replace or bypass
  17. Try this for help - should get you there.... http://www.minidisc.org/manuals/sony/sony_mzr37_manual.pdf
  18. Experienced the same problems on a few units - skipping towards the end of discs (Hi-Md) - Failure to read then failure to eject - no solution yet! Have one that plays on it's side reliably - a bit of a pain really. - Like you, need a service manual

  20. Hi - The generic battery labelled for E10 on ebay is not compatible - it's a simple NiMh gumstick, not a LiPo - a case of mistaken identity?
  21. Try setting your library view to "Albums" and "Date imported" - then it will be clear if files have been successfully transferred
