Make sure the "TIMER" "Rec"/"off"/"Play" switch is set to "OFF".
Then press power, and you should be in business as soon as it read the TOC on the disc. Without any disc inserted, it should go straight to being ready.

MDS JE520 Disc stuck in unit Toc light on. Previous to this state C13 error flashing.

the C13 is a mechanism error. The TOC means Table of Contents which is the part of the disk that determines the beginning of each track. These units are somewhat delicate and not really DIY repair candidates. Parts are still available for these. Look for either an authorized Sony service center or at least a shop that has worked on these in the past for repair assistance. The loading mechanism may need to be repaired or replaced.

MDS-JE520 player makes chattering sounds==do you repair? Please send details--Thanks-- BOB

The only repair place I know of in the USA is ProDigital of Philadelphia who repairs digital broadcast equipment and Minidiscs subject to parts availability.
520s are mostly worn out at this late date try to find a 630 which does all of the same things better and is a newer unit.

Sony MDS-JE520 Mini Disc Machine no operation, standby led is illuminated, but pressing on/off button it does not respond

This is from my own experiance. I inadvertedly bent the cover of my deck and had the same error.
The minidisc is blocked in the loading mechanism. Too much weight on top of the deck can bend the cover and the metal support which is above the loading sledge. The slider is then blocked. When you connect the power you can hear a motor trying to move for as short instant.
Disconnect the deck from the power supply.
Take of the cover and check if the support is bent. carefully bend it upwards, if so. Reconnect power and check if the deck powers up..

That's my solution which worked for me.

BTW I second Obertellis advice to find a MDS-JE780 (or MDS-JB980) they are the most complete decks ever made by Sony
