I hate to be the one who tells you, but is not fixable. The display might be replaceable, but I can't tell if the problem is with the display or the thing inside that puts info on the display.

Here is the user's manual and the service manual http://www.minidisc.org/part_Sony_MDS-JA555ES.html

It's a great machine, even if it doesn't have MDLP.

Try to memorize the buttons.

SOURCE: Sony Net MD Walkman (MZ-N910)

had the same problem a few minutes ago!
removed the battery but it didn't help.
tried with another md, no success
tried the same md in another Mz 910, no success

then it got on my nerves and I gave the MZ n910 a little shock with my hand.

It worked, stopped spinning and started to play.

It was, I think, a spinning problem, md couldn't play properly, the little shock helped.

SOURCE: sharp MD MT-80H(S) not playing sony minidisc 80

I had a similar problem after not using player for several months - "Can't read" message displayed every time I put a recorded minidisc in the player. Seem to have solved it (maybe only temporarily) by opening the player, inserting little finger in at the righthand front and sliding movable mechanism from side to side. It looks to slide on a bar which had maybe picked up dirt or damp. Also tried blowing a warm hairdryer into the slot for a minute or two (take disc out first!) to remove any damp. Working OK at the moment.

Hoi I have a Sony mini disc recorder model MDS 102 and everything works but when I want to play a mini disc then I have no music but a loud noise. Mayby you can tell me wich problem it is. Thank you.


Hoi?

What happens when you play a different disc?

That's a really really old MD player and, frankly, doesn't sound too good on a good day. Buy a nice 470 or 480 on eBay for $50.

Hi iown a sony- mds je 330, how can i transfer from md to computer?


Sony has a free program called Sonic Solutions. It stinks to high hell. But it is free.

I strongly suggest you either play the MDs into your computer via the LINE IN, or buy a Behringer UCA202 USB Audio Interface from Amazon for $30 and input the audio digitally via the USB.

That's how I do it.

Minidisk systems encode music diffferently than CD's do. The instruction manual for your model can be found at http://www.minidisc.org/sony_mdse10_manual.pdf you will need to reference page 18 for instructions and trouble shooting.

Can a MDS JE330 play minidiscs recorded by a "hi md" player? most md-players can not.


No. Only Hi-MD players/recorders can play Hi-MD's. They're a later and totally different technical specification. The discs may look superficially similar but it's like trying to play a Blu-Ray disc on a CD player.

RTs00c00e00 ERROR MESSAGE, WILL NOT PLAY TURN OFF OR EJECT. TRIED TURNING POWER OFF AND UNPLUGGING, SAME ERROR MESSAGE COMES UP. PLEASE HELP! NOT IN MANUAL.


I just turned on my Sony MDS-JE520 and got the same error message RTs00c00e00. Didn't wanted to play MD, but did throw out the MD. After turning it on and off still got the same message. When I took the remote and pressed the key display, it came back to the normal "mode". Everything works again, so hopefully it stays with only this one-time incident.

Hope it will help you guys also.

Regards, Danny

Sony MDS-JE440 mini disc,single play


If there is a "PROGRAM" button, then you just turn on "program", rotate the knob to what track you want and then hit ENTER. Then when you hit 'play' it will only play back that track. You'll have to repeat this for every track or manually hit the PAUSE button between tracks if you program more than one.
