MDS-E11 recording problem

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts


I have a strange recording problem with my E11. It seems to read any disk just fine, better than others.

Recordning on new (unused) discs seems to work fine. Used discs can fail. A lot of dropouts. Sometimes other players cannot play the track at all.

I tried recording five 10 second tracks in a row, leaving recording mode between each. Three of them could be played on another player, two could not.

Took it apart for a look. Visually all looks ok. The magnetic head rests on the disc during record. And it is clean. Also measured the voltage related to the laser diode in test mode, and that seemed ok. Also tried raising the laser power somewhat and it seemed to have effect but the next recording (after lowering again) was OK too.

Any ideas welcome!

Best regards, Jonas
