SOURCE: TOC ERROR ON DENON DN-C615
Take this info with a grain of salt. I recently received one of these units with a TOC error, and after removing the drive assembly and reinstalling it, the problem went away. Before removal, I observed the motor spinning poorly and even backwards. Rather than pull the whole drive assembly, I would first eject the drive and remove the face from the tray. This is done by putting your thumbs on the tray and pulling up with your pointer fingers underneath the face. It should just snap off and snap back on the same way. Try playing a disc now, if it works try loosening the screws on the drive assembly and shifting the assembly towards the front of the unit, tighten the screws and put the face back on. You should be good to go. There are four screws holding the assembly down, the two in the back can only be accessed when the tray is in the open position. The front two are accessible through holes in the tray, and I don't recall if the tray has to be open or not, but that's easily observable. If it's still not working, there is a flat-flex cable running to the laser assembly. Pull and reseat this gently. Try to only manipulate the cable by the blue reinforcement tab. I hope this helps!

Get a lens Cleaning Disk and put it into the CD Player, there could be foreign objects on the lens itself, these and other shelf systems all have one common problem... Dust.

First unplug the unit and press the power button to make sure all the power is out of the unit. Try to take a cotton qtip and clean the lazer lense with alcohol. after wipe it clean with a new cotton qtip to remove the film the alcohol produces. Do not use a lot of alcohol and drip it all inside of the unit though.
Also if you tried a cd-r try a real copy instead. Make sure your cd's are ok.

You player is not detecting the data stored in the disc. this is due to many issues, but firstly let us first clean the optical head either using a lenns cleaner- good one- or by using a good sway gently on the lens.it this wont work, open the system and check the drives. if the cd rotates but fails to read you have a defective/ weak optical system. you will need to replace the head. Further if you can check for the RF in the optical, absence means failure. Also the main board/ processor could be defective. All this can idicate the same fault of no reading / playing. However if the reading is seen but there is no output then check for the speaker outputs/ speakers. check for audio out for signals. if present then the output audio amplifier is defective. check this out. Good day.

c13 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 player, but I hope that my reply has given you a practical alternative means of solving your problem.
