SOURCE: sharp MD MT-80H(S) not playing sony minidisc 80

I had a similar problem after not using player for several months - "Can't read" message displayed every time I put a recorded minidisc in the player. Seem to have solved it (maybe only temporarily) by opening the player, inserting little finger in at the righthand front and sliding movable mechanism from side to side. It looks to slide on a bar which had maybe picked up dirt or damp. Also tried blowing a warm hairdryer into the slot for a minute or two (take disc out first!) to remove any damp. Working OK at the moment.

What does utoc error mean on a Kenwood mini disc player


Well, what it means is

TOC errors often mean the recording head/optical block is cooked. A cleaner might work, but often it's the end of the MDR.

Are you sure the battery is correctly (fully) charged? Try removing the battery and running on (only) the charger.

try cleaning the lens with a minidisc lens cleaner.

open the unit and check the laser position - it should be all the way to the left. that's where it should start to read the disk.

Hi every time I load a minidisc into my MDS-JE480 minidisc player I get "C13 read error". There is nothig at all wrong wth the discs as they are playing and recording normally on my other minidisc player.


The error means that the player is unable to read the table of contents (TOC) on discs any more.If it's an occasional error then you can try switching to TDK blanks as they seem to be easier for flaky players to read, but if it's happening regularly to all discs then your machine is unrepairable due to a total lack of spare parts.

On the plus side, there are millions of MD units now lying unused as folks have moved on from them and as they're mostly worthless people don't generally bother with trying to sell them. Almost every piece of MD gear I own has come free of charge via my local FreeCycle and Freegle groups. Whatever you do, don't buy a used player from anyone: they're all getting on now and the TOC error is an age-related fault which may occur at any time.

If you wish to see exactly what features other machines have then visit the superb equipment browser at minidisc.org. The site is hosted but n longer maintained though so some information is out of date, but it's still the most comprehensive source of free information about MD available.

Sorry here's probably no hope for your MDS-JE480, but I hope that my reply has given you a practical alternative means of solving your problem.

When inserting a minidisc into the unit, (recorded or blank) all i get is a 'read error' mesage


This cannot be fixed. You need a new head for the machine but they're no longer available.

Almost all of my minidisc equipment has come from FreeCycle/Freegle and as the name suggests they didn't cost me a bean; I suggest you try there first for a replacement machine.

Sharp mini disc md-mt16


Is the Disc inserted UPSIDE DOWN? Turn it over. Are the Lens Dirty? Clean them. Are Your DISC's Dirty Or Damaged? Get one that is Clean And NOT Damaged.
