    Which sony plays hi-md

    Hi-MD came after most of the sony decks were made so most of them will not play the discs. The JA50, 20, 333 and other sought after high end decks cannot handle them.

    If you check ebay you might find a third party later MD deck which can play them (I believe someone made one).

    When the discontinued Hi-MD discs started selling for $30 up each I sold all of mine and the Hi-MD portables too. You can hook up the Hi-MD via rca and just copy them if need be for a special song but this is not pratical due to the vast difference in storage on the discs in most cases.

    Power won't turn on

    I had a similar problem to this. It turned out that the button on the main circuit board was broken. Take the cover off the printer and look at the main circuit board for any damage. I replaced the broken button and the printer turned on right away. Another option you can try is to replace the entire board if you can find a "parts" printer on ebay.

    I have an Epson tm-t8iii receipt printer and have been trying to get it connected to my computer with no luck. I have downloaded the advanced printer driver but it still won't work. I have a RS232 port on...

    I had the same problem. The issue is that you have to use a "Null Modem Cable" to get it to communicate with the computer. The serial cables that Staples carries have a different configuration than a Null Modem Cable. I bought mine on eBay. Hope this helps.
    P.S. - You may continue to have problems after you replace the cable. If you do, just change the port speed setting in the computer to 9600 in the Printer Properties dialogue under the Ports tab.
