Zeugitai Posted November 6, 2016 Report Share Posted November 6, 2016 (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 did light up when opened, and it did eject the player. Then...darkness. Pressing the power button, opening and closing the display lid, nothing. [...] [Remaining Issue:] The two internal rechargeable batteries are corroded. They are Ni-Cd, 'AA', and according to the schematic in the service manual, page 61, 3v. Does anyone know where to find these, or acceptable equivalents? I 'chatted' with Sony service today and was told these batteries are 3.7v. each. Nicd's are hard to find anymore. Will rechargeable batteries of 3.7v. and, perhaps, Li-Ion chemistry work as well?
