Question about Sony MDS-JE440 Mini Disc Player
Can we still buy spares for this machine i:e a new disk drive??
These decks suffer from this fault. Both the 440 and the 480 are the same deck with the 480 having more input and output choices.
I have various models of Sony MD and only these exhibit this fault. A friend has four 440/480 decks and all have this problem. The loading belt needs to be changed, This is responsible for pulling in and pushing out the loading & ejecting mechanism. You can get them from this link on Ebay as of Jan 2015.
(I am not related to or have any connection to the vendor).

What John said. Or simply buy another deck on eBay and toss the old one.
Does this problem happen consistently?
Did you force a disc into the mechanism? If so, perhaps you bent it.
The other possibility is that the paper label is coming off and getting in the way.

Yes, but if you look on eBay, the optical drives are very expensive relative to buying an old machine and using it for parts.
