When I insert an MD into the stereo, it will (A)not play it and (B) take FOREVER to eject it. Sometimes I have to cut the power and reconnect to have the MD ejected. Any suggestions as to what's causing this problem? How much will it cost to rectify?

I just had the same problem with the same model. Disc five was saying no disc and would not play any other discs. I opened the radio and found the the CD tray was missing a piece for disc five. You have to put the disc tray back into the holder to fix it. Make sure it locks in place and you should be able to get the rest to work.
Sometimes you have to unplug it for about 30 seconds, then when you plug it in press the power on button. If there is still no sound, check the speaker connections on the back they sometimes come loose.
The manual says "C13/Disc Error:
The system cannot read the discinformation correctly.mEject the MD once, then insert it again." It seems this error turns up when the system cannot read the disc properly, one reason for which is a dirty/dusty lens. Try a minidisc lens cleaner if you haven't already.
I would have to say that both of these sound as though they are probably beyond economical repair.
With the first unit you mention, either the panel with the switches on needs replacing or the logic (the brain inside) is on it's way out.
On the other system, either the lenses need cleaning or the lasers are on the way out for both MD & CD. You can try cleaning the lenses first, it might help.
What I would very much recommend in the future is to get a system made of seperates. Then, if one source goes down, you're not left with no music while it's being serviced. If you go to Richer Sounds they'll give you a part-exchange allowance for your old hi-fi(s) and if you buy the warranty & never use it they will give you 100% of your money back. Every one's a winner!
Yes there is. You need to purchase a 1/8 inch jack (standard headphone input) to RCA (red and white) cord, they usually run approx. $20 - $25). Once you have that what you'll need to do is plug the RCA cord into the back of the stereo (corresponding colors, red into the red, white into the white) and set the function to Game (MD). You can do this by pressing the button on your remote or by pressing the function button on the main consul until you see MD on the monitor, press play on your ipod and you're good to go!
