Sounds like your power transformer is bad. You might also check the power board for cracks. This model had a history of that.

How do I fix my PCM-M10 Sony audio recorder? I haven't changed the batteries for a while and it looks like they are corroded. The recorder won't switch on. Is it fixable?

Carefully remove the batteries and remove the corrosion. Outdoor is better to reduce being exposed by breathing it in. After removing corrosion, add new batteries and try again.

Sony pcm d50

I also have had the exact problem with my PCM D 50`s (I have 20 machines because I teach radio journalism). 8 of my D 50`s are not working. They don´t start, freezes and nothing helps. I´ve been in contact with Sony and they say it´s a problem with "the power board". What´s the problem, they will not tell. It would cost me about 300 dollars to fix the problem. Instead I´ve bought new Sony M 10 for less money. They work just fine.

My Sony PCM-D1 recorder recently behaves erratically by sometimes failing to record on both channels using its built-in microphones.

I'd contact the service beforehand. If you think, that that behaviour was due to a software, ie. firmware issue, google for Sony PCM-D1 service manual. I wouldn't precisely describe the procedure, but generally a some ten-click-sequence is required for entering the service mode which allows for factory resetting the recorder. I don't think that the reset procedure can harm the device, but for example, if one attempts to reflash the firmware and the prodedure fails - due to power problems, for example but also due to other things which could happen - then the PCM-D1 could be regarded as busted. The repair includes qualified service with SMD repair facilities and a new board to replace that failed one. Therefore such a complicated service mode sequence, just as a precaution I think.

All the best,

Hi! I have an MSF file that was recorded using a Sony digital recorder. Can you tell me what program I will need to download to play this file? Thank you.

I found this info for you. On my recorder, these files are small, and probably do not contain the actual recordings, only data about the recordings. From Sony website: What is the MSGLIST.MSF file? icon_arrow_up_spec.gif Applicable Models: PCM-M10, PCM-D50 Article ID : 1187263 (modified 11/16/2009 11:54:00) Question: About MSGLIST.MSF file.
Answer: MSGLIST.MSF is a file that contains information such as the order of folders, playback order of audio files and recording date and time. If user connects the recorder to the computer, the MSGLIST.MSF files are displayed but do not delete or change these files. If these files are modifed, the saved files may be broken or the recorder may not work correctly.
Hope this helps. ChgoDoc

Need to find a power/battery charger board for Acer Ferrari 4000.

Hi there.
You will be able to get the laptop powerboard from ebay or Sony themselves, although if you get from Sony it will be considerably more expensive.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!
