SOURCE: 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.

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.

SOURCE: MDS-JE480 MiniDisc Deck

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: can a MDS JE330 play minidiscs recorded by a

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.

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.

C13 read error


Your MD cannot read the disc for some reason - bad disc, dirt on your player laser, dist in the MD casette or worn out or damage laser head in the machine.

Try another disc if no problem it is the disc - if same problem air dust the head lightly if still a problem likely damaged or worn out laser head (this is a mechanical device which wears out in time)

Disc ejected and then retracted.


Check on the web for the fix. Many people had an issue with the Sony MDS-JE500 series MD units as the little lever switch that indicates that a disc is loaded goes bonkers and it might be as simple as 'adding' a non-sticky item to the lever. Do a Google search for 'mini disc switch fix'. Good luck.

My sony md player wont read HI mini discs


The 480 is not designed to read HI MDs. If I remember right, it can read them as regular discs.

You can always purchase a HI-MD recorder, if that is important to you.

Sony MDS-JE 480 'Auto Pause' capability


Most of these decks will simply STOP recording after 22 seconds of no analog or 6 seconds of no digital input; I have not heard of the Auto Pause feature.

Every time I load a disc the words 'disc load error' appear


Inside all MD players are a number of small pinswitches. These sense whether the MD is correctly inserted, whether the record protection tab is activated and whether the protective slide on the MD has retracted after MD insertion. On Other (portable) MD playback devices will also have a pinswitch which checks that the lid has been closed, but yours is slot loading so does not have this.

Pinswitches do not last forever as the internal parts can fail due to fatigue or due to misuse, and in every MD player which I've examined with the symptoms you describe the fault has either been a pinswitch or a faulty solder joint to the switch.

Without examining the unit though it's not possible for me to narrow down the fault any further but if you have basic electrical skills and tools you can use a continuity meter across each pinswitch to determine which one is not working correctly.

The part is cheap: original spares are usually unavailable but can normally be replaced with a generic item or bypassed altogether if the user is prepared to accept minor losses in overall functionality.

Note that a good used MDS-JE480 is still relatively easy to find: my first one cost me just £30 on eBay less than two years ago and since then I've acquired another which was listed on FreeCycle for the princely sum of zilch. Yamaha and Kenwood units are also knocking around although few of these have the MDLP capability of the JE-480. So don't bother with spending much on repairing your current unit without looking for another replacement first as it's likely to be the cheaper option.
