C13 means the deck cannot read the minidisc table of contents for some reason. Since you have no disc in the deck it probably means the laser head is out of allignment or just plain worn out.

I often see MDs being sold for parts, but you need to know the fix is usually cost prohibitve. Most likely the laser assembly in your deck is bad and will cost too much to replace. MD's are more complex than CDs and are optical/magnetic using a laser to read and a laser + magnetic head to record on the discs which are read/write many times.

Chasing instructions for a boardgame called Lotto. It was produced by Legend Games Australia

Lotto is a game that is played like bingo, but pictures are used instead of numbers. The Rules: To play, you need the deck of picture cards and at least one board for each player. Each player will also need a dozen or so dried beans or pennies to mark their board.
Each player gets a game board (which shows 16 pictures). Someone picks cards from the deck (it can be the teacher, or the players can take turns picking a card), and if a player has that picture on their board, they cover it with a penny or a dried bean. The winner is the first person to cover 4 pictures in a row (horizontal, vertical or diagonal). The winner calls out "Lotto!" or "Loteria!" Comment or vote if this helps!!

LG797T. Used to play DVDs but now we can't use the DVD player to watch movies because we get "Unknown disc, please try again." when it tries to read the disc. Can this be fixed at home (and how) or do I...

The problem with your unit is either a faulty laser or it could also be a faulty mpeg printed circuit board.
The way i would go about solving this issue if the unit is not under warranty is first try to clean the laser.
You can do this removing the case from the unit and if the laser is accessable, use a cue-tip or soft, clean cotton bud to gently wipe the 'eye' of the laser. Make sure to use clean and soft Cotton tips as you do not want to scratch the laser and cause further damage.
After you have done this you can test the unit without replacing the outer case, his will also give you a chance to see if the laser is lighting up to bright, concentrated red dot.
If this isnt happening you need to replace the laser. Nearly every LG product i have dealt with has a yellow or white sticker with a part number on it to make ordering another easy.
If it does not have locatable part number, refer to your local authorised repair agent as they will be able to either repair the unit for you or be able to source and obtain a 'DVD Deck Assembly', which is the entire setup that contains the laser, the drawer that the disc sitson as well as the spindle motors.
Replacing the DVD Deck Assembly is as straight foward as marking everthing you remove with a coloured marker, so you know where it ame from and being careful with any flat ribbon cables you may need to remove near or attached the laser
Good luck!

Cdm 500 not reading disk 1

First, try the disc that plays OK in deck 2 in deck 1. This will eliminate the disc as the problem. If the disc won't play in deck 1, then the laser pick-up is on it's way out. There is no easy fix for this, it will require the attention of an engineer.

Fault 1: sounds like a servo or laser pick-up fault.
Fault 2: sounds like a broking track on the pcb or dry joint at the phono output stage.

If you havent had it repaired you can send it to us.

you know foward select for scan and then back button for stop and then single press in what you need it takes a little fenness to control for even even numbers you just have to stop scan and seek single taps at a time

Toc code keeps comeing up on my kenwood kdc x5589

Hi, toc error means that the laser is struggling to read the Table of Contents which tells the unit where all the information is on the disc, it may be something as simple as the lens needs cleaning or something as complicated as the laser needs replacing, but you could try running a cd disc cleaner through it first. Good luck......

Avic-n2 won't read the navigation disks...

If it play cd's but not not dvd's or navi disc then your laser is "tired" or out of alignment. If it does not play any type of disc then it needs a new laser pick unit. A capable tech should be able to re-align or replace the laser pick up unit for about $75 to $150. Contact me if you need it perfome. My number is 801-414-4566.
