Question about Sony MDS-E10 Mini Disc Player

1 Answer

Read Error I just sold an MDS-E10 on eBay. It was working fine before I shipped it. The buyer says it is now giving a "read error" message any time a disk is inserted. I packed it well for shipping. What could have happened enroute to cause this? I can always refund and have him ship it back, but if there's a fix I'd like to know. Thanks!!

Does he have a pre-recorded MiniDisc that he can try it with? It could be that a cable wormed its way loose, or the laser took a dump during the shipping. Hard to tell. Try the pre-recorded disc first, then you might end-up having it back.

I just got a purchase from a buyer on ebay, and when I went to check again for the previous days availability. I found it sold. How do I give a refund in a polite way?

if it was bought on paypal , make the refund back through paypal
if it was by credit card , contact the buyer by e-mail and make arrangements for the refund .
if you make the advance first and explain that the stock list was not updated in time for the purchase and that you want to refund the purchase price it will reduce anger from the buyer as it shows an honest error

Hi i just sold an item and the money from the item was posted into my account however the money from the shipping and handling was not?

Hi there!
Once your item is sold, the system will generate a fee for that which is called the final value fee. It is a percentage eBay took for successful completed listings but it will be taken away in your bank or credit card at the end or mid of the month depending on your billing cycle. (please check your invoice in the Account tab, right side invoices)
But if the shipping cost is not included in the invoice sent to the buyer, check your listing and make sure that you didn't choose free shipping. If your shipping calculator is set but the buyer paid no shipping cost, you can then ask the buyer to pay for it. You can send the buyer a manual paypal invoice.
Here's how you can create a manual invoice using your PayPal account:

1. Log in to your PayPal account.
2. Click Request Money.
3. Click Create a Money Request or Create an Invoice.
4. Enter the required information.
5. Click Continue.
6. Review the information and click Request Money to send a money request or Send Invoice to send an invoice.

You can also ask several people at the same time. Just enter their email addresses, separated by commas.

I hope this helps. Have a great day!

When inserting a minidisc into the unit, (recorded or blank) all i get is a 'read error' mesage

This cannot be fixed. You need a new head for the machine but they're no longer available.

Almost all of my minidisc equipment has come from FreeCycle/Freegle and as the name suggests they didn't cost me a bean; I suggest you try there first for a replacement machine.

How to list on ebay

If you are a motivated person you can list on ebay. I find reading showed me the way. You can read easy steps on ebay to set it up. Then you have to set up a Pyapl acct which is free. Once you do this you need to apply for the Debit Card not the Credit Card. This way when you have card you can access your money from eaby. You can also get a book for really cheap on The ebay bible is a great book with illustrations. You can hit list once you register with ebay. There is a easy 1 2 3 like setup for new people to guide you through. Just be informative as you can, describe any flaws. Take a good picture so you can put on your listing. Figure out your shipping help at you can do flat rate which is price you decide or calculated which depends on where customer is and what they choose. Always put info about your shipping policuy and return policy. You might want to go and buy some wallpaer background for a penny just to get a couple positive feedback which will help you get people wanting to buy from you. I could go on and on i hope i helped you

My minidisc deck Sony MDS-JE330 shows error C 13 when I try to insert a monidisc...

Amazing what google can find...

I was ion touch with the Sony tech dept. If you get a C13 error it's because of dust on the lens causing TOC read errors. I didn't have any compressed air in a can so I used a soccer ball hand pump and pumped a ton of air just inside the door of the unit. 2 seconds later it worked fine. No cleaner MD needed.

Disk Error Message

the best thing to do is RE format the disc. i am currently having the same problem , witch i am tired of fixing them. if the item is from ebay : hong kong , i suggest you tell the buyer and complain. people will do anything for good feedback. saw formatting it will work. but you'll have the same problem in the future. either you copy all your music files to a folder. or buy one from Argos , woolworths etc etc...
