    and has been replaced by the MDS-JE480 (which offers NO "Auto-Pause"

    The manual does not indicate that Auto Pause/Auto Space is available on
    a 480. It used to be available on almost all models and is a
    requirement for those using minidisc in a performance mode.

    like the JB980.

    If you press Menu with the unit stopped, enter the Setup menu and
    twiddle AMS a few times, you should come to an Auto Pause menu from
    where you should be able to turn it On/Off (if it works like the

    Failing that, you should take the unit back to the dealer for them to set, as the JE480 isn't supposed to have auto pause.

Sony mds je480 dont know how to switch auto pause off

Most Sony MD's 'Auto Pause' feature can only be turned on & off with the remote. I am still unsure whether this is a feature on the JE480. I am led to believe that it is however you will need an older model's remote to turn it on & off. You need to locate the 'A-Space' button and press until 'A Pause' appears in the display. You can now turn it on or off. Good luck.

You will need the Sony Remote Control RM-D7M to put auto pause on sony mini disc players.
On the remote control you will see a button with A.SPACE above it.Press it 3 times. Dead Easy..
I hope this cures all you people who think they bought the wrong mini disc player.
You CANNOT put auto pause on using the scroll menu.
E-mail me at if you need anymore info on MD players. Good Luck.
