Question about Audio Players & Recorders
You fix it by returning it to the guy who bought it and getting your money back. Call eBay customer service.
If it is too late, tell me more. Does the disc go right in and then right out? Does it try to read it first?

SOURCE: stuck disc
The carriage assemblies for these units are known to break. Please DO NOT attempt to remove the disk. Bring this to an authorized Sony service center. They should be able to give you a fixed price repair quote. This is the only way to save the disc and prevent further damage to the assembly. The replacement assemblies are a bit better than the originals so you shoudn't have this problem again.
I have repaired a number of these with much success. Care must be taken so that the disc heads are not damaged.
Keep us posted.

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.

I have also the same problem with my MD8 recorder, the same error code: ERROR 04... From the yamaha website it says,
Error 04: The magnetic head didn't raise off of the disk.
