Hat Trick For MDCF? - Service Mode + 2nd Gen Hi-MD

What specific language support are you seeking?

Offhand, I'd want all the foreign characters possible (short of Japanese/Chinese, which I don't require). Checking the manual it looks like quite a few are included (for Hi-MD mode anyways), but I'm not sure. Not very specific I know, but as a backpacker travelling over several continents I'd ideally like to be able to title recordings with village/souq/market names, song names, etc. in (romanized) original names.

......

these are the codes for my MD RH-910. can anyone compare and check whether any field is not same as yours? because mine one really cannot play back mp3 directly. whatever files i have tried on. so i would like to compare these code with yours to see what are the differents. who knows it might be the firmware's problem that i can easily fix it using modify the value..

I'm a new owner of an european version of mz-rh910, a friend has the US one.

I can't see DistFL or other fields, i view last two hex digits, and the fist 4 digits are hex values increasing (i don't know what that mean!)

What's your version of rh910?

here values of Us and European (U, E no letter same value, Y is your value when different):

here values changing in the different version:

0113

DistFL 24 Y

20 U

A0 E

0124

HMD3RH 36 Y

38 U

3E E

B3 E

Can somebody help me to explain what that difference mean?

Thanx

hi siup, welcome to MDCF,

Is ther poosible to program one of these code to have the function :

"record set" in the position "record manual" by default

but to disappoint you: nope, this is not possible... we are all trying to get Sony to incorporate this in future models, but for all existing HiMD models you will have to go into the menus to get manual rec levels each time after a stop

Hi @all !

many thanks to all of your tests! I bought a Euro RH10 and I was really pi**ed off to what has happend to the functions and the legitimations of the Euro-version.

Now, I am happy laugh.gif Again a BIG thanx to Ishiyoshi and kurisu helping those who has no service manual available wink.gif

btw: does any body know more about the built in limiter? What is behind the "ForLoudMusic" parameter? I use OKM Rock headphones and the A3 adapter for recordings. The A3 adapter supports a -20db option to reduce the volume down to -20db. Now, I'd like to know more about the above function. Do I never have to use the A3 again, because of the fact that the ForLuoudMusic option offers this "out of the box"?

ps: the 113 parameter was running up and down in my version. Only the last 3 HEX values where fixed to SA0. Now I have a nice A24 value, hehe he rolleyes.gif

btw: are there any other options that maybe allows to copy directly a file from the removeable media to another windows drive?

Best wishes from Germany

the only thing i wish to be somehow hacked/unlocked in my RH910, though i know it's impossible, is two step mega-bass function the old net-md units had... bass in my N505 used to be punchy and dynamic compering to what hi-md's equalizer can do... :(

First of all i want to say a BIG thnx to Kurisu,after hours of reading all the discussions and the service manual for my mz-rh 10 everything worked fine.Have to say that i couldnt see the "distFl" value as well as other users but everything worked perfect when i change my the "A0" value to "24" in my mz-rh 10 uk model(just new bought 4 days ago),i ve got the same problem with other users(cannot edit tracks) but this is something i already knew from the forum users,if anybody finds something new about this issue pls contact me(drikme@hotmail.com) or upload your comment on the forum.

Hi, I already change my 113 from A0 to 20, but I cannot resist my curiosity and I start to explore the service mode (without changing anything), and I have a question, for what or what does the Audio file???

If you go to that line, in some numbers you will hear sound (a peep):

audio

3111

...19

3112

...19

3113

...19

3115

...1E

3116

...0F

3117

...CC

thats all, maybe we can change these values for more volume...

PD: sorry for my english, but I`m chilean, bye

Hey, i'm new! Anyway i used this hack on my European (UK) RH10 model, i know what you all mean about the hex number, i wasn't sure what to do, anyway i just used VOL- button and navigated through the hex numbers (im refering to the last two digits here!) until i got to "24" like it says on the guide, THIS WORKED! i have better volume and custome equiliser settings!

Thanks for the hack! And i hope this helps anyone who hit a snag! :D

Hi

I bought the RH10 here in Belgium (so sorry for my english :-p)

I changed the settings from european to US mode. I first took the asian settings (24) but without tite editing possible... no satisfaction :P

But the US settings would have the missing letters.... but i was thinking that the guys from sony already fixed that problem.

Tryed it and no problem!

I have ALL features, full output, 2custom equalizers and all characters available!!!

Thanks guy's!

Are there possible more functions and features that could be unlocked this way?

Greetz!

Hi. I've got a Japanese RH10, because I wanted the LCD remote. Do I need to do any of these hacks, or do I have full functionality out of the box? I've been using it for a few months, and I have both custom EQ settings available, and haven't noticed any of the limitations people are talking about. The default language was English. Is there any way to check for sure that I don't need to do anything? Also, are there any hacks that can be done purely for cosmetic reasons? I just tried titling tracks, and I was unable to do so. Is there a setting I can change that will enable me to title tracks, preferrably with full foreign language support?

No there is nothing that needs to be done for the Japanese units. The titling should function normally, unless of course you were trying to amend titles from tracks recorded with Sonic Stage in which case you may run into the CANNOT EDIT message.

Why is it that tracks recorded with sonicstage can't be retitled?

[Off topic]

DRM basically. I did do some testing and I seem to recall that with SS 3.4 for this may no longer be the case (as long as you don't encode the tracks with copy protection). Otherwise the simplest thing to do is connect the unit to the PC and edit in the Sonic Stage transfer window.

This place is amazing! :ok: Thanks a million to the gurus, I just did the mod on my brand new RH10 and it worked a treat. The change in max power is quite noticeable, especially with high impedance 'phones (Beyer DT-880) which before sounded just faint and now are almost reasonable (with the vol. on max of course).

I just wanted to confirm that this hack worked without any problems on my rh710. Changed the value from A0 to 24 it was about 30 seconds work. I don't really use the extra volume, but the custom equalizer settings are great for clearing up low quality audiobook recordings. Thanks a lot!

We did it for the MZ-R900/700/500, again for first generation Hi-MD, and now..

With frightening restrictions facing Europeans such as reduced output [2.8mW], and no real custom equalizer on the MZ-RH10 and presumeably other second generation Hi-MD units, can we save the masses once again?

---------

Here's how you remove this limitation - by entering service mode you take full responsibility for your actions and cannot hold minidisc.org or it's associates liable for any damages occured - don't worry though, you'll be fine:

With the 'Hold' switch on, and while pressing 'Menu', press FF FF RW RW FF RW FF RW Pause Pause.

[FF = Fast Forward | RW = Rewind]

1.) Press the 'Vol +' key to enter the Manual mode.

2.) Press the 'FF' key five times to select the item number 0113.

3.) Press the 'Vol +'/'Vol -'key and set the value that is after "DistFL", or if you don't see that, when you press 'Vol +'/'Vol -' a value will increase/decrease - change it to 24.

4.) Press the 'Pause' key on the unit to set the change.

5.) Press the 'Stop' key four times and then remove the battery or whatever is powering the unit. Turn it back on and enjoy!

For those of you in Europe, you now have a full equalizer, no restriction on volume, and Kanji/etc support. :) North American unit owners can do the same for better language support.

A big thank you to Ishiiyoshi for supplying the service manual for this unit!

p.s. For information on how to get into service mode with first generation Hi-MD units, check this thread:

I have a MZ-RH710 (I live in south america so i dont know why i have a european version!)

your MoD worked perfectly!!!!!!! THANKS, YOU SAVE ME FROM DUMP THIS TO THE TRASH!!! :)

The first time i listened and saw the ridiculous low volume and no custom eq. I couldn't believe it!, my previous MZN-510 was way too much powerfull and a excellent low and bass settings.

If one wants to damage is own hearing you must have the privelege to do it, at the end it's only yourself the one that will be damaged!, this restriction is plain stupid.

the only difference in you procedure was that I found a number increasing insted of DistFL, that number finished with A0, changed it to 24 and save settings and it worked!!

thanks a lot really! :D

Hi, I just bought the RH10. I tried the hack, successfully went into Service Mode... proceeded to Manual, to 0113, then the hex numbers at the bottom of 0113 started to move when I press volume.

Do I just adjust the last 3 digits to 024 and ignore the digits in front of the last 3 digits which keep moving - I'm afraid of pressing set in case of buggering it up!!!! Its a european model, bought in UK.

Pls help. I've tried twice but still couldnt find DistFL as mentioned. I've removed the battery without pressing set and it thankfully still works!!
