I have a tascam 564 i,m unable to eject the disk from the machine it only reads disc loading


I listed a similar answer for a similar qestion. If you have a push in to load mechanism, it is probably worn out. I had similar problems and found they were impossible to correct - think of it is an out of allignment or mechanical problem.

The few places which can fix this problem were charging $60 an hour plus shipping to and from, and may not have the parts to fix it. the cheapest way to go is to eBay for another MD.

If you are buying a used deck check it out like this - Load and record a good disc. Eject it and then replay it. If the reloaded disc plays you have a good MD if not you have a bad MD recorder of some sort.

Bad decks act like they are recording but MDs are not CD recorders they use a laser and a magnetic riding skate on the other side to of the MD write to the disc. If the skate is damaged they will appear to write but when you put the disc in another recorder or reload it to your recorder they will not have anything recorded on them.

I get bothered when I see clueless ads for used MD recorders saying it plays but does not record but it is a simple fix - It is not and the unit although it will probably play well it is not cost effective to fix the record problem I mentioned.

I have a JVC XU-301 BK...When i play MD i get some static disturbance in my audio out put..however when i play Audio CD it workd fine and out put is cleare


I'd suggest you get a MD head cleaner or give the MD head a blast of comporessed air, also check your MDs. If someone gave you a dirty MD the disc can have dust in the case which does exactly what you are talking about.

If you get the MD head cleaner use it sparingly or it will wear the head out (MD cleaners come in sets of two one for the upper head the second for the lower head). You can find them on eBay.

Error code 13


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.

Cd drawer not opening on sony mxd-d4


Could be bad belts, lack of lubrication on the MD side and even a bad power supply filter capacitor of the larger type. It would need to be seen by a repair Technician to resolve all issues.

Can a MDS JE330 play minidiscs recorded by a "hi md" player? most md-players can not.


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.

MD player windows keep saying "no disc" when a disc is inserted. This started after the door starting getting sticky opening and closing. Any help would be great. Thanks


The little switch that detects the disc is inserted goes bad quite often on all of these sony home MD recorders. Do an online search as I have seen a step by step approach on it's repair. Make sure to UNPLUG the unit before removing any covers and poking-around inside. Good luck,

Now whith any CD say NO DISC


The lens that reads the DVDs might need cleaning or it failed already.
If this is something you want to try, open the DVD cover and open the DVD mechanism, once you do this; you will see something like an eye. Use a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol should work.
If after cleaning it, still does not work; the lens is defective and will need to be replace.
Hope this helps.

Cd will not play and keeps ejecting


source http://www.kenwood.nl/support/veelgestelde_vragen/ Changer Error Codes ? E-00: Poor Cable connection. ? E-01: Magazine not properly set in changer. ? E-02: No Disc in magazine. ? E-03: CD does not have selected track number. ? E-04: Disc is dirty, upside down or unreadable. ? E-10: No data is recorded on the MD. The player plays the next disc automatically. ? E-99: Changer malfunction, disc may be caught in machine or changer requires service. Sounds like the mech is gummed up, jammed, or a cd is stuck inside. Get a nerd to open it up and check it over.
