Sony MDS-E10 has been dropped. need schematics to solve problem.
Hi. I am a working musician. i use a Sony mini disc player (Sony MDS-E10) to play my backing tracks. i dropped it and cooked the transformer. My repair man ordered a new one from Sony & replaced it. however there is also a problem with the disc carriage which was undetectable untill he fixed the transformer. i love the machine & have spent a lot of money on repair so far. I need to find a copy of the schematics to give to my service guy so he can complete the repair. he has emailed Sony 2 times with no reply. can you please help me? Nick W ;-)

Your service shop would need to purchase the service manual (if available). The problem here is that without seeing the unit, I can;t tell you whether the optics are bad or the tracking head is bad or the loading mechanism is defective. None of those options are cheap. Let me look into this a bit and see what I can find. I will try to get you part numbers at least with costs.

If you recorded a disc and then the deck saved it; then you cannot play it is probably a bad mechanism. When I buy old decks I check them by inserting and recording a disc then ejecting it. If it will then not play when reloaded the deck is bad. Often the decks say they are saving but are damaged and cannot so this is the only way to know for certain.
hi there is nothing to do by yourself. you need to take your md player to the next authorized service. seems the optical device that reads the discs has worn out, compareable to turntables you need to change the `needle` ;)
The lower end mechanism were full of problems after about a year of use. The unit needs to go to an appropriate Technician- NOT Sony as they will just replace the mechanism if they even work on it and it will be the same cost of a new unit. The mechanism you have needs lubrication and a limiting resistor placed in line with motor to not break plastic parts.
Minidisk systems encode music diffferently than CD's do. The instruction manual for your model can be found at http://www.minidisc.org/sony_mdse10_manual.pdf you will need to reference page 18 for instructions and trouble shooting.
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.
Hi, its probably way too late to give this solution but there is a ribbon cable that runs from the main board onto the display board that causes this problem. Its very accessable from the top and all you have to do is pull it out clean the contacts and re-seat it. This will resolve all sorts of communications issues with the display and buttons.
