Question about Sony Walkman MZ-R50 Personal MiniDisc Player

1 Answer

Battery drain The original ion lithium batteries died long ago and i've been using the external battery attachment with the screws on the rare occasions when I still use the MZ-R50, usually for recording purposes. Yesterday I dug it up to go record a live concert and new batteries were drained after 10 minutes recording. It kept giving a low bat message and turning off, each time turning on again(when I slide the rec button) showing the bat lines as 2/3rds, untill it started happening too frequently to try and record anything. I also tried with a friends NiMH bats, the AA type, same effect. What can I do about this? Is there anywhere I can get the original special shaped Lithiums that go inside the player? will it make any difference? Thanks

Where can I get a replacement battery for my Awia mini disc AM F5 ?

The Aiwa batteries are hard to come by. I got rid of a lovely Aiwa pootable becasue the only battery available was $150. Many of the older models use rare batteries which are just not made anymore. You may find a NOS one for a high price on ebay or a used one with some life in it.

This is a sadsituation because they were great machines...

There are discs all over eBay. Don't pay more than $2.25 each.

Mz-n10 just died...after new battery install

Well, this is a bit late, but if you still have the N10, you must charge the internal battery enough for the external battery to work. You can run the internal battery dead enough that it won't recognize the external battery in this model.
Make sure, of course, that the battery switch is on, and that you have the correct charger.
