Hi,

your deck is expecting a digital signal provided by optical cable.
Hence the error message you see. If you want to record using RCA cables, you will have to set your MD recoder so to use analog input.

Press the INPUT key repeatedly to select the Analog input, then connect your RCA cable to the Analog input and start recording.
You may have to adjust the recoding level (or volume if you will).

OR you get an optical cable and then use the Digital Input 1 or 2.

See page 11 of your user manual for detailed instructions.

Cheers

Din unlock c71


the input source you have selected is not working. If digital it might be a copy guarded source which the deck cannot read...

If you get fancier and are trying to record the optical output from a newer device like a 5.1 or 7.1 receiver although the signal will go through the MD deck cannot decode the advanced optical signal. There are adaptor boxes on eBay which decode 5.1 & 7.1 optical signals to an optical signal the older MD can read and record from.

Try selecting another source like analog RCA. The digital stuff I mentioned applies to digital RCA and Optical Cables like toslink.

Jd520 error read c71


DIN unlock is related to a digital clock being missing so the unit is looking for a digital input of some kind. Since your laptop is putting out analog change the MD input to analog and of course use the correct inputs. A 1/8" or 3.5mm audio cable may fit into an optical port but it will never work in that way.

My mini disc player is displaying din unlock c71 i cannot record


You have probably chosen a source which is not active, there are other reasons but usually your selector switch is set to a dead input with nothing to record from.

I'm trying to record on to my mini disc recorded (sony MDS JB940) and it's flashing Din Unlock c71. how can i solve this problem?


"The definiton in the manual suggests you are trying to record a digital bitstream that is either dead or incompatible with the recorder."

That is completely wrong. DIN UNLOCK means what the first poster said - that you are trying to make a digital copy of a digital copy. You cannot (for legal reasons). Record via analog.

ABSOLUTELY DO NOT TRY TO CLEAN YOUR LENS WITH ALCOHOL AND A Q-TIP. It has nothing whatsoever to do with your problem and you may well damage or destroy the lens or the transport.

Whats a c71 din unlock plz if any 1 can help me just email me plz


Usually, you are trying to record DIGITALLY from a source that has 'copy protection'. Try recording thru the Analog jacks, and you shouldn't have this problem.

C71/DIN UNLOCK


The definiton in the manual suggests you are trying to record a digital bitstream that is either dead or incompatible with the recorder. Go analog.

What happens if you skip the receiver? Be advised that anything coming in digitally through a cable/satellite box may be muliti-channel and convertible by the player to its native 44.1 khz sampling rate.

Din Unlock - Unable to record


You must have the unit switched to "DIGITAL" input - switch it to "ANALOG" and record that way. The "DIN UNLOCK" is when you have the lack of a proper digital signal, or a digital signal with copy protection, like you cannot make a digital copy of a digital Minidisc, etc...Does that make sense? Let me know if the "Analog" setting works for you. Good luck.

Won't record...says din lock


I'd say you have the digital input selected. The player does not see a digital signal and gives such message.
Select the analog input and you should be able to record.

Hope this helps.

Hi - You can download the manual from the link underlined in blue below:

The error you have is probably:

This means that you are trying to record from the Digital Input, if you want to record from an analogue input do the following:
