hi there is nothing to do by yourself. you need to take your md player to the next authorized service. seems the optical device that reads the discs has worn out, compareable to turntables you need to change the `needle` ;)

Display not showing

Probably worn out display. The 300s are old machines and wearing out. Get a later deck which still has some life left in it. Few can repair MDs and the cost is often high and parts hard to find so go for a later model. Not to mention the 300's were economy (cheap) decks.

Cd drawer not opening on sony mxd-d4

Could be bad belts, lack of lubrication on the MD side and even a bad power supply filter capacitor of the larger type. It would need to be seen by a repair Technician to resolve all issues.

JE 480..I,m trying to connect it to an amplifier. The manual shows 4 rca connectors at the back, going into 4 in the amp. I only have 2 (per channel), in the amp. So I just use two into two. When i play...

Try another recording to eliminate the media as the cause.

Find the two audio OUTs (Left and Right) on the player and plug them into the Left and Right Audio IN's of any available input on the amplifier. It sounds like you're either missing one of the channels or you have them plugged into different inputs.

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 an old Sharp CD-C811W mini hi fi system which I took apart to try to clean the lazer head. Since putting it back together the CD's keep skipping - what did I do wrong - help please

You've probably done nothing wrong: presumably there were symptoms which initially prompted you to open the unit up to attend to the head. It's possible that you've left a smear on the laser lens or some grot on the head guide rails, but CD/DVD lasers do not last forever and as your unit is an old (and cheaply built) unit the laser head unit has probably worn out.

If you can find out the exact CD drive assembly fitted to your mini hi-fi then if you're lucky you may find a replacement head assembly (Earth yourself, unclip the guide rails, lift/slide the ribbon cable clamps and remove the assembly, reassemble in reverse with an imperceptible smear of HMP grease on the guide rails).

Unfortunately you're highly unlikely to find an original or even a compatible laser head assembly simply due to the extremely short production cycles of these items due to constant improvements in design. Good, used, CD mini hi-fi's are ten a penny so if you can't get the part for less than £15 then bin it and replace the entire CD system.

If you need it a service manual for your model is at the address below. Please return the favour by rating my answer; I only regret that I could not give you a more positive outcome.

Won't record...says din lock

I'd say you have the digital input selected. The player does not see a digital signal and gives such message.
Select the analog input and you should be able to record.

Hope this helps.

what the problem sounds like is that your power button on ur main deck is broken or its in a standby mode activated by the remote. like some new dvd players that have the click in power button on the front u can turn them off by remote saving having to turn on the whole unit again from the main to use it.
