  1. Hello, Does anyone in the US repair minidisc players or recorders anymore? I have two that won’t record or play and one that won’t transfer from NetMD to the computer. Thanks, Mike
  2. (Update: The portable unit was not seated properly in the deck. Incessant poking and pushing resulted in the seating of the rear corner of the MZ-R5ST into the MZS-R5ST deck and, voila, the power came on! I ended up just cleaning the old system batteries and putting them back in for the time being.) [Original Issue:] I took my old faithful MZS-R5ST out of storage, plugged it in, ejected and reconnected the MZ-R5ST player unit, and the whole deck went dark. My heart sank and it hasn't come back. The unit was not misused or abused. On the contrary! However, it was stored for some time. It d
  3. Hi all, been a very long time since I've been on these forums! MD of course is just a faded memory by now and Sony otherwise seems to have gone downhill other than SCE--Playstation division. I'm sure not many frequent these forums any longer (Agoraquest has also become a dead zone) but I've made a couple interesting Sony "kijiji purchases" in the past 6-months or so. One of them happens to be this pretty cool MD-based unit, the CMT-M333NT! CMT-M333NT: The $30 kijiji Find: I got it locally off kijiji locally for very cheap--seller wanted $40 for it but I offered $30 and he said yes
  4. Dear Expert, I'm looking for help for two decks (JE640 & JE780) facing the same issue : I've opened them and dismanteled the loading mechanism to change the loading belt (drive wasn't ejecting disk but was working fine before repair work). I've not touched anything else and both decks do not wake up. The light "standby" is red but the button power on doesn't do anything. I've already completed successfull belt replacement on other decks (JE770) and do not understand why those one are still asleep. Anyone has an idea ? Regards, Rudy
  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. Hello 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
  7. My elderly father has an elderly Sony DHC-ZX50MD which he has been in love with - but is devastated that it keeps erasing some of his minidiscs. Can anyone recommend a repairer around Middlesex/Surrey/London where he can take it to be looked at? Or at this stage do you think there's no point as it's too old and I should try and get him another second hand but younger system. He's too stuck in his ways to learn how to use a new system really - and at his age. It's too big obviously to post many thanks in anticipation of a reply.
  8. Is Sony Extended Service Plan international? I wonder if I purchase a Sony Extended Service Plan within the United States, will the item be covered in other countries? Like if the item is broken overseas, could I mail it back to US sony customer service or I couldn't? Thank you.
  9. Hi, I much admired the minidisc format when it first came out, we used it in our radio station, I put some of my on-air work on MD for archiving. Fast forward 15+ years... I've acquired a Denon DN-1100R in non-working condition and hoping to get it running so I can copy my archived stuff to another format. Does anyone know where to find out what the Denon SYSTEM ERROR codes mean? These are the codes that show as "Error xx" - in my case I get Error 51 and Error 95 at different times. Otherwise the unit is pretty much unresponsive. I have a service manual, it helpfully (not!) shows all th
