To continue, connect the program source properly.

Din unlock c71


the input source you have selected is not working. If digital it might be a copy guarded source which the deck cannot read...

If you get fancier and are trying to record the optical output from a newer device like a 5.1 or 7.1 receiver although the signal will go through the MD deck cannot decode the advanced optical signal. There are adaptor boxes on eBay which decode 5.1 & 7.1 optical signals to an optical signal the older MD can read and record from.

Try selecting another source like analog RCA. The digital stuff I mentioned applies to digital RCA and Optical Cables like toslink.

Mini disk player JES510 want to record some midi tracks using the optical link. keeps saying din unlock & then if try says cannot record. How can I overcome this? Help appreciated.


Like most home recorders the minidisc will not let you make digital copies of a digital original. The idea is to prevent piracy of copyrighted material.

Unfortunately, that includes digital tracks you yourself made,

Just go through the analog inputs. It will sound fine.

PS - professional minidisc recorders will let you record digitally, but they are expensive.

Why i am seeing DIN UNLOCK


If you are recording from a DIGITAL input like the OPTICAL or DIGITAL COAXIAL and their is no signal, or if it is a 'non-copyable' copy of a digital copy (from a mini-disc or protected audio CD-R) you will see this. You need to record using ANALOG inputs, then you won't have this DIN UNLOCK problem using analog. Double check your digital connections and make sure your digital source is set to 'play' and see if the DIN Unlock goes off. Otherwise, use analog reocrding only.

I'm trying to record on to my mini disc recorded (sony MDS JB940) and it's flashing Din Unlock c71. how can i solve this problem?


"The definiton in the manual suggests you are trying to record a digital bitstream that is either dead or incompatible with the recorder."

That is completely wrong. DIN UNLOCK means what the first poster said - that you are trying to make a digital copy of a digital copy. You cannot (for legal reasons). Record via analog.

ABSOLUTELY DO NOT TRY TO CLEAN YOUR LENS WITH ALCOHOL AND A Q-TIP. It has nothing whatsoever to do with your problem and you may well damage or destroy the lens or the transport.

C71/DIN UNLOCK


The definiton in the manual suggests you are trying to record a digital bitstream that is either dead or incompatible with the recorder. Go analog.

What happens if you skip the receiver? Be advised that anything coming in digitally through a cable/satellite box may be muliti-channel and convertible by the player to its native 44.1 khz sampling rate.

I have a minidisc model mds e10


Hi,

it seems your MD unit is expecting a digital signal on the digital input causing this message to appear.
You need to connect a signal source to the digital input

or

connect an analog signal to an analog input and select the analog input as signal source.

In both cases the DIN UNLOCK message will then disappear.

Cheers
