You may well have a damaged and/or dirty disc. Try a different one.

Hello,
The problem with the TOC reading and then appearing C13 is a problem with bad electrical contacts.
Remove the connection to the mains outlet, remove the top cover (5screws) and the remove the 2 paper flatcables that connect the main PCB and the disk unit on both sides. Plug them back in and possible your problem is solved.
A better solution is, of coarse, to replace both cables by new ones, as the quality is rather bad, and once disconnected, they should be replaced.
Good luck!!!

SOURCE: when i inserted my mini disc it said TOC Reading

Sounds like you lost power when you were finishing recording a disc. On a home unit it got unplugged before you had the TOC written, or on a battery unit the battery died when it was writing the TOC (table of contents) for the disk.

What does utoc error mean on a Kenwood mini disc player


Well, what it means is

TOC errors often mean the recording head/optical block is cooked. A cleaner might work, but often it's the end of the MDR.

Are you sure the battery is correctly (fully) charged? Try removing the battery and running on (only) the charger.

try cleaning the lens with a minidisc lens cleaner.

open the unit and check the laser position - it should be all the way to the left. that's where it should start to read the disk.

Toc not writing


I was going to note that when you first turn the MD recorder on is when it will write the TOC for the disc - so even if you turn it on and press eject, it is smart enough to write a TOC first, then eject the disc. Good find on the battery loss.

JE530 c13


1) It's more likely your laser died than the the drive failed.

2) Run back to your repair guy, and when they fix it (IF they fix it), ask to see it work before you go home. They damned well better fix it for free!

3) Buy another one on eBay.

C13 means the machine cannot read the TOC on the disc. It is possible you have a disc with a bad TOC. You may have left it near a magnetic field, such as a speaker or a component transformer. Try another disc. Or take a disc and erase it, then record on it. See what happens.

When I input a disc and hit play I receive an error which says "TOC ERRORa".


Possible that the disc is not reading and so the the TOC- table of content error must be referred.
It can be due to a poor head tracking or the failure of the data being read or processed.
Clean the head and use a good disc to be checked once again. If so the optical head can be faulty as it might be getting weaker.

Ive just got a mini disk player and its comeing up toc error,can you help me please


Probably not. There are various reasons that TOC errors occur, some are fixable and others not, but Sharp MD units were really known to suffer from them for multiple reasons all at once. TOC means Table Of Contents; it's an index file on the disc which tells the host machine where everything on the disc is located and the TOC is modified whenever you edit a disc. Sometimes the file gets corrupted, but often the machine itself simply becomes unable to read the disc and as the TOC is the first thing it tries to read then you get a TOC error.

If you're lucky the TOC error is limited to a single minidisc; if this is the case then it's just one faulty disc and although there are ways to perform TOC cloning they usually involve hacking the host machine in various ways which may cause permanent damage. Unless the disc is important, just chuck it away and use a new one. If the fault is with the player then again, just chuck it into the nearest electronic waste recycling bin. Spares are not available, and as it's a Sharp, diagnosis will be difficult and the fault likely to return.

Many MD players are practically worthless these days so they're often available on FreeCycle and Freegle groups: Sony are the preferred choice by far, and are also the most commonly offered brand, but take whatever is on offer without complaint and worry about problems later; after all, they are free.

Sony minidisc MDS-JE530 c13 rec error


This could be a solution for your problem, if you get a C13 error it's because of dust on the lens causing TOC read errors. Try blowing out dust using clean compressed air (the kind in the can used for computer maintenance).

Spontaneous MD erasure


Well, depending how the content was recorded, there may be a slim chance to recover the audio. To me it looks like TOC was not written successfully, effectively deleting the TOC.
You can try TOC cloning with this 'blank' MD using another MD player, but your track markers will be lost during the cloning. If it works, at best you will end up with ONE long track. Then you can edit and reset your track markers.

It may be also be a good idea, to try the JE440 carefully with junk content to make sure it still works ok when writing TOC. You may have an intermittent problem too. I'd be very careful editing MD in this unit until it has been confirmed the TOC writing works ok. You may want to check the over-write head assembly and the cable that connects it. Sometimes these cables develop hairline cracks causing intermittend write action.

Check out www.minidisc.org forum for TOC cloning.

Good luck recovering your audio.
