The small limit switch for the disc in position typically goes bad on about 40% of all Sony Minidisc recorders. It is a $5 part, but will probably cost you $35 to get it installed.

Not recording anymore


After you press the 'record' button the Minidisc unit is still in "pause mode" - you can hear the music and see the meters move, but notice that the time isn't moving until you press "Play" - then it will start recording. Is the time changing when you go to play it back? You might have left the MD in 'pause' perhaps?

Disc ejected and then retracted.


Check on the web for the fix. Many people had an issue with the Sony MDS-JE500 series MD units as the little lever switch that indicates that a disc is loaded goes bonkers and it might be as simple as 'adding' a non-sticky item to the lever. Do a Google search for 'mini disc switch fix'. Good luck.

The whole machine has died, but before it did it refused to respond to any of the controls or release the Minidisk, a new one, which had been inserted.


The JE330 was a 'budget' version of the JE500 models, less features and more likely to take a dive. Sounds like the whole power supply went south. Hate to say it, but you might have to replace the recorder with one from flEaBay. You can always unplug it, wait a day and then power-up perhaps one last time to eject the disk.

Sony mds-707 wont play longplay disc


only CERTAIN Sony players will play LP MiniDiscs. You cannot play LP on the original stereo models (JE500's, JE330's, MDS series for the most part). It's only the ones that have a usb port on them or are marked LP2 or LP4 on them. Actually, the cheap plastic NE models can play long play discs. Hope that this helps. Let me know.

Disc error displaying on je500 and read error c13 on je330 model


The 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 there's probably no hope for your players, but I hope that my reply has given you a practical alternative means of solving your problem.
