Question about Sony MDS-JE470 Mini Disc Player
I've had this MDS-JE480 deck for a little over a year, and suddenly it refuses to do an optical/digital sync record. It has worked flawlessly for dozens and dozens of MDs until now.
I get the alternating messages "C71" and "DIN Unlock." I changed optical cables, cleaned everything with compressed air, and tested the output device (DVD player) with an old portable. Even got a replacement optical input module and put it in, to no avail.
This is the 2nd of these to die on me; with the first the carriage mechanism self-destructed. Any fresh ideas?
I get the DIN UNLOCK with you try to make a copy of a digital copy.

1) The manual is available for free from Sony.
2) It means you are trying to record a digital file ... and the SCMS Copy System will not allow you to make a digital copy of a digital original. It has to do with copyright law.
Just record it via the analog input. You can, in fact, make a digital copy of an analog file, if you wish.
