Hey eriez

if your familiar with repairing tvs, this aint that hard. just locate the blown fuse and the zener diode. and look for scalded and burnt component parts as well....

unfortunately, there is no free service manual found on the net today for your JVC CA-V808t... however, there are lots of sites that sell them though..

any thoughts that you want ... just post it here...

My MDS-E10 Has Been Having Problems Lately. I Own Hundreds Of Mini Discs That I Have Recorded Music On Several Years Ago. Everything That I Have Recorded On These Mini Discs (Years Ago) Play Fine With No...

hi there is nothing to do by yourself. you need to take your md player to the next authorized service. seems the optical device that reads the discs has worn out, compareable to turntables you need to change the `needle` ;)

its possible that the lens of the laser has collected dust over time but its quiet old so i guess the optical pick up is worn out, replacing would help

Hi i have a 50484 player im trying to install. It keeps coming up with a registration failure what can i do

You clearly know what a 50484 player is, but I and other Experts can only guess. It's definitely not any minidisc player I've ever heard of, but maybe you're referring to a Sakar mp3 player.

As I don't know for certain I'm not going to spend time on an answer which might be a waste of your time and mine. In any case, if it IS the Sakar player then you haven't given details of the operating system of the host pc so the question remains impossible to answer.

May I respectfully suggest that you repost your question, with all necessary details, under the MP3 Player section of FixYa? Experts on mp3 players will then be able to see your question instead of Experts on minidisc players who may have no idea about mp3 players.

Getting a rec error message whilst trying to eject mini disc

i have just solved the problem get a small flat head screw driver and whilst ejecting put it into the hole where the mini disk goes. now when i say gentle i mean gentle GENTLY feel for the edge of the mini disk you will find it. When you know you have found it very gently and slowly push the mini disk up and down and the disk will pop out you wont damage anything as long as you are slow and gentle. If it doesnt happen first time dont worry it will with patience but dont be heavy with it. The problem is the disk and not the player. you have a corrupt disk which is quiet common. Just throw the disk away. Turn the machine off for 10 seconds and turn back on put another disk in that your not bothered about and you will see that it shoudl play etc try recording onto that disk and you shoudl see that the player is working fine
hope this helps

On standby only

On almost every appliance which I've ever encountered with this problem, the fault is due to to failed or sticking irelay on one of the internal circuit boards.

The part itself usually costs no more than around £2-£5 if replaced alone, or can cost twenty times more if the entire circuit board need replacement.

The second method will be completely uneconomical and I'd be surprised if you can still get the board. The first method is cheap and easy if you can solder and are capable of locating the faulty relay inside the machine, but unless you (or a friend) can do it then the labour charges of a professional repair will also be more than the machine is worth.

Given that you can easily get perfectly good working Hi-fi component MD players by Sony, Yamaha and other manufacturers for free on FreeCycle I'd strongly suggest replacing the machine with another if a DIY/skilled friend repair is unavailable. Also, many portable MD player/recorders are available on a similar basis and can do almost everything a component player is capable of when plugged into an existing hi-fi system (although none that I'm aware of can act as an alternative and superior D/A converter for many early CD players). Most of what's inside a typical component MD player recorder is empty space!

If your remote control is still in good working order you can typically get up to £20 for it on eBay if it does not work on the replacement machine.

When i record onto my minidisc player, it splits the song into seperate tracks! Does anyone know how to fix this


have a look at page 9 and page 13 of the user manual, it explains various options. You may have an option selected by mistake.

Hope this helps.

Mini Disc Not Working

Pull the power cord. Make sure the three-position switch with "REC/Standby/PLAY" is in the middle position, then plug the cord back in. Wait a minute, then press POWER. Now load a disk and wait 1 minute for it to read the Table of Contents (TOC). Either it will show the tracks, or it will say 'empty disk'. Let us know what happens from there, okay?

Defective sony vcd Model MHC-VX33

If it havent been use for a long time try dusting it and cleaning it first, sometimes dirt gets stuck on vital places which makes it go crazy. Hope this works. Please dont forget your rating for me as well...We take time in answering problems. Thanks
