jonhandley Posted January 3, 2007 Report Share Posted January 3, 2007 (edited) hello,i recently purchased a new old stock, sony mds-501 player and have run into a snag. while everything thing seems to work fine (disc is accepted and plays through all tracks) when i go to take out an ejected disc, the disc shutter is getting hung up on a spring loaded arm the looks like it is designed to apply tension to the side of the disc, as it is initially accepted into the carriage.i downloaded the service manual and while there is a drawing detailing this tensioned arm, there doesn't appear to be any specific info on a fix for this.has anyone encountered this before or would anyone know of a solution?i've enclosed a pdf file detailing the part (listed under no. 162 "not supplied")thanks in advance for your help.jon*just noticed something, i have two different mini discs, one with a metal shutter and one with a plastic shutter. the plastic shutter md's can be removed while the metal shutter ones get hung up on this lever arm. has anyone encountered this before?MDS501_pg_93.pdf Edited January 3, 2007 by jonhandley Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
