Question about Sony MZ-M100 Personal MiniDisc Player

1 Answer

Good battery installed, but no power

I just got this unit. It works fine on AC adapter, and with accessory AA battery pack, but I have no power at all with correctly installed good Sony NH-14WM battery!? I tried cleaning using contact cleaner on a cotton swab but still nothing. Any help? Thanks.

    Have exact same problem. Sony VGN-CR309E works fine without battery installed but if I put any battery in, I get no power to the notebook. I even replaced the battery with a new one and get the same result. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi- I think you might have a defective battery, or a problem with the battery compartment inside the case if you don't show a charge when the set is plugged into the AC adapter. I do repairs on minidisc recorders so if you would like further information, email me at: masondixon@netzero.com.

Where can i get a replacement AC adapter for my sony walkman MZ-R70?


You web search for "Sony Walkman MZ-R70 ac adapter".

Lacking a perfect match find a 3vdc power supply somewhere like Radio Shack or eBay. They make universal ac dc adapters. Look around.

Hi. I have a Sony MZ-N710 Mini-Disc Walkman which wont read discs and also does not charge. If power is connected via the charging station or directly, or via external battery adapter the spinning disc...


Possible that the optical head unit has failed in your walkman and might need a replacement. It will be adviceable to seek the cost factor of a replacement unit of Sony that might turn out expensive ... to the entire cost of the set.
So unless the optical head reads there is no data transfer or processing.

My MD player does not operate? No display coming on the screen. Power is connected ok


Unfortunately if it's getting power but not responding there is little that you can realistically do. When you state "Power is connected ok" I presume that this means you have already tried using the gumstick rechargeable battery (which doesn't last forever, BTW), and also the charging stand. If you have tried both of these, then it's clearly not an obvious fault such as a broken power input socket. You can also try connecting the optional external dry battery case, but this was an optional item with the N-710 and rarely purchased by users, or you can try disconnecting the ac adaptor from the charging stand and connecting it directly via the socket on the player marked DC IN 3v.

The fault is likely a really simple one but the MZ-N710 and almost all other portable MD players were never designed to be repaired and consequently are really difficult to dismantle without causing more damage. When I used to sell these products I was told by the Sony servicing centre that for all but the most minor issues warranty claims were dealt with by destroying the returned unit and sending the customer a complete replacement.

Spare parts were not commonplace when the units were a current model, and now they're as common as freshly laid dodo eggs. Your only realistic fix is to replace the unit.

This may sound negative, but it's not: because MD is now an obsolete format there are millions of perfectly good units lying unused by those who have upgraded. Except for the later and far rarer HiMD models and also flagship regular units like the MZ-N910, almost everything else is near worthless so folks tend not to bother with selling them. As a result it's quite easy to pick up MD equipment for free via your local FreeCycle and Freegle groups; apart from my own MZ-N910 (still in regular use and has a far superior sound quality to any iPod) every piece of MD gear I own was obtained for free, usually with loads of minidiscs as well. Don't be too choosy about what you may be offered as most of the Sony NET MD players (any MZ-N model) can be easily hacked to give them most of the features of the flagship MZ-N910.

If you do end up recycling your MZ-N710, then keep all of the accessories as they can be used on other players which you might acquire.

I hope that my answer has been of use even if you cannot fix your player. Please take a moment to rate my answer.

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.
