Question about Sony MDS-JE320 Mini Disc Player
When there's no disc, the player starts making a very annoying clicking sound. I've opened the case and it seems like a gear is making this noise (it's standing still and another gear is moving against it).
How can i solve this. When a disc is inserted, everything is ok. Only when the disc is ejected, the clicking noise appears.
I had the very same problem with my MDS-JE510 and I found out that it has something to do with a sliding plate that comes forward and stops too far. It is a metal pin that could be bend (very, very little) to the frontside of the recorder. I put a paper between the pin and the stopplate and the problem was really gone. Now I bend the pin so it stops earlier and voila, everything works super fine. I can send a picture of the pin, I made. It's n the leftside of the disc-unit. The only thing you have to do is open the upper cover (5 screws). Tell me if you would like to send me the picture OK? Ronnie Janssen.

you seem yo have a problem with the disk positioning/insertion switch, the switch may have become misaligned or it has become intermittent. The switch is located on one of the circuit boards that is attached to the drive mechanics. It may not be easy to get to it without dissembling the entire player. You may want to download the service manual and have a look to see the placement of the switch. Here is a similar player service manual for your reference.
Hope this helps you.
