Sony minidisc MDS-JE530 c13 rec error

I am trying to record from one md to another but after 24 secs of recording i get C13 rec error flashing. the machine then freezes and the only way to get the player to do anything is to use reset at the back. it has occurred on two different discs and regretably wiped the entire md leaving them blank.

This could be a solution for your problem, if you get a C13 error it's because of dust on the lens causing TOC read errors. Try blowing out dust using clean compressed air (the kind in the can used for computer maintenance).

JE530 c13


1) It's more likely your laser died than the the drive failed.

2) Run back to your repair guy, and when they fix it (IF they fix it), ask to see it work before you go home. They damned well better fix it for free!

3) Buy another one on eBay.

C13 means the machine cannot read the TOC on the disc. It is possible you have a disc with a bad TOC. You may have left it near a magnetic field, such as a speaker or a component transformer. Try another disc. Or take a disc and erase it, then record on it. See what happens.

C13


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.

It can't write to the disc for some reason, the disc may be locked and it can't write, it may be dirty, the table of contents may be corrupted or the disc is full to name a few reasons.

Sale c13 read error


C13 read error means that the player is unable to read the TOC (Table Of Contents) on the minidisc. it has to read this first so that it knows where everything is stored on the minidisc.

TOC errors can be caused by faulty minidiscs, those which have been incorrectly finalised or by a faulty head assembly on the machine.

If possible, try to see if you get the same problem with different brands of minidisc, and also whether minidiscs recorded on other machines work on your player and whether minidiscs recorded on yours work in other players. Report back with what you find as it helps determine whether the player itself is at fault.

In reality though, it's a 9 year old unit and like all optical disc devices, minidisc heads do not last forever. If the head has failed then your only fix is to replace the player as spare parts are no longer in production and existing stocks are almost as rare as fresh dodo doo-doos.

I have a problem, minidisc deck mds je 480


HELLO
C13 is what is called a "Protection Error". This normally happens because the if you look on the bottom edge of the minidisc itself you will see what looks like a plastic strip or tab at the bottom left.
Pull it to the left for it show fully and this will enable you to record onto the disc. Move it right, and this will PREVENT recording from taking place.
If you have the unit connected up by the optical lead and you're trying to record the audio from a DVD unit, the MD deck is probably telling you what you are trying to record is copy protected. I never use the optical lead, just hook it up by good quality interconnects and the recording you get is superb. Both DVD & CD audio!
All The Best! :-)

C13 error !!!!


Amazing what google can find...

I was ion touch with the Sony tech dept. If you get a C13 error it's because of dust on the lens causing TOC read errors. I didn't have any compressed air in a can so I used a soccer ball hand pump and pumped a ton of air just inside the door of the unit. 2 seconds later it worked fine. No cleaner MD needed.
