If a read head burns out or the alignment has changed, the laser is inoperative. If a CD/DVD was a copy or reproduced on a computer it too may not be read. If the medium works on other devices, then the players laser may be defective.
Problem solved: Downloaded service manual and after studying it for awhile found the fault. 1. On power up in "timer record" mode the 520 proceeds to record selected input until the timer shuts the power to the 520 off. 2. TOC info is stored in memory along with error code history. 3. On power up TOC is read from memory and written to disk and second recording started. 4. Found BT451 had failed (causing loss of 2 above) as soon as the power is removed from the 520. 5. Replaced BT451 BT451 1-528-739-11 BATTERY, LITHIUM (SECONDARY) (Sanyo ML2016-HJ1 40mA/h 3v rechargeable is suitable replacement) shop around as prices vary
I actually fitted a Lithium battery removed from an old satnav I had lying around! bit of overkill really as it 1400mA/h
Note a faulty BT451 can cause quite a few other problems as well so it's worth checking out and replacing if low or not holding it's charge...........
Possible that the disc is not reading and so the the TOC- table of content error must be referred.
It can be due to a poor head tracking or the failure of the data being read or processed.
Clean the head and use a good disc to be checked once again. If so the optical head can be faulty as it might be getting weaker.
You cannot remove power from a minidisc player after you are done recording as it updates the TOC when you power down. If you had switch set to timer "REC" and power up the unit it should update the TOC, otherwise all is lost.
Sounds like you lost power when you were finishing recording a disc. On a home unit it got unplugged before you had the TOC written, or on a battery unit the battery died when it was writing the TOC (table of contents) for the disk.
When a disk is stuck inside the player , try following the procedure below:
Unplug power cord.
Plug back power.
Turn on the unit and press repeatedly the eject button at the same
time. If you successeed in ejecting the disk before the player starts
reading TOC(disk initial track), then the disk will eject.
If that does not work, then there is an internal fault, in that case the unit must be taken apart to remove the disk.
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......
