That is not a lot of information to go on, but I suspect there is a problem with the transport or heads which causes it to shut down. I've had similar instances with several of the MD Decks I've had. On any MD deck if the complex play/recording head which is optical magnetic gets messed up you are probably better off to just buy another unit. The best use for a MD Deck with a bad head is to use it as an analog to digital converter or vice versa; if it has sufficient inputs to do so (the inputs vary with the model). Sorry I can't be more specific with the limited information you have given. It is probably due to the stress of the head malfunctioning causing the shut down.
I checked the manual and it says if you are recording the disc is dirty and cannot be read, if you are trying to play a disc the same may be true and to try and reinsert the disc. I've only had 2 bad minidiscs out of hundreds of them, it is possible an old one has damage or dirt. It may also be the complex play and recording heads are worn out or damaged. If you have dropped the unit the heads may be messed up. Most people don't understand MD's are read write and can be used many times. On the other head they record with a magnetic skate riding one side of the disc in the cartridge while a laser is firing at high power on the other side to record. They do not work like a CD recorder. One will find many old MD decks with bad heads which will still play recorded discs but cannot record and save to a disc. To figure out if one is working try to record and save, after doing so eject and reinsert the MD if it is blank the recording head is shot regardless of what the unit says. Most MD decks unless you have the upper end $1,500 ones most people have never seen are not worth the expense of repairing due to head cost and limited numbers of qualified people to do the work. In those cases it is better to just find another which works.
I have several CD players and I've found some CDs will just not play on some of them. If you have a changer with 300+ discs they are more likely to be fussy than one loaded in a flat tray.
I'd suggest you try playing the CD in another CD player or your computer, if it won't play in them it is the disk. I had one which would not play in any machine, it was a copy I made on a poor quality closeout of blank CDs at Good Guys when they closed, it turned out the blank CDs were of poor quality.
do you wish to come to a complete halt...if so you want to just play a single track (your option are play 1/shuffle/a-b/all or special (your own pick) program) you can pick 1....but the very next track will not play until you manually press play on unit or remote...you can also try putting 2-3 seconds gaps (during recording, so when playback you will also get this 5 second between the fading out track and the start up one...
No. Only Hi-MD players/recorders can play Hi-MD's. They're a later and totally different technical specification. The discs may look superficially similar but it's like trying to play a Blu-Ray disc on a CD player.
Is it an MDS-JE530? Do you have a minidisc in it? If yes, then unplug the unit. Slide the little switch from TIMER "OFF" to "PLAY", then plug the unit back in. After 10 seconds, it should turn on and start playing the minidisc. Let me know if that works or if we need to try something else, okay?
The switch is for 'REC' 'Standby' and "PLAY".
If you leave it switched to "Play" and pull the plug and push it in to the wall receptacle (mains) it should start playing after a few seconds delay. The same for "REC". You use a timer unit on the power cord for those.
If you have the switch in the middle position and plugged-in, you should have a tiny Red LED illuminated. Push "Power" and it should start-up and be ready to use in a matter of a few seconds.
