SOURCE: sharp minidisc MD-MT20 H - TOC ERROR a

Hi,

I am sorry to say but your unit needs to be sent for repair. The TOC error shows up when the unit can't read the Table Of Contents of the disc (and simply shuts down after trying)....and in your case, you said it can't read any disc. This indicates that the lens unit has malfunctioned and needs to be repaired or replaced.

What does utoc error mean on a Kenwood mini disc player


Well, what it means is

TOC errors often mean the recording head/optical block is cooked. A cleaner might work, but often it's the end of the MDR.

Are you sure the battery is correctly (fully) charged? Try removing the battery and running on (only) the charger.

try cleaning the lens with a minidisc lens cleaner.

open the unit and check the laser position - it should be all the way to the left. that's where it should start to read the disk.

Sharp MD MS 702 shows sound is being recorded but on playback shows blank disc, what could be the problem?


That does not sound good. Being optimistic, though, what happens if you record something and then finalize it? Will it play then?
Will it play a previously recorded MD?

When I input a disc and hit play I receive an error which says "TOC ERRORa".


Possible that the disc is not reading and so the the TOC- table of content error must be referred.
It can be due to a poor head tracking or the failure of the data being read or processed.
Clean the head and use a good disc to be checked once again. If so the optical head can be faulty as it might be getting weaker.

Ive just got a mini disk player and its comeing up toc error,can you help me please


Probably not. There are various reasons that TOC errors occur, some are fixable and others not, but Sharp MD units were really known to suffer from them for multiple reasons all at once. TOC means Table Of Contents; it's an index file on the disc which tells the host machine where everything on the disc is located and the TOC is modified whenever you edit a disc. Sometimes the file gets corrupted, but often the machine itself simply becomes unable to read the disc and as the TOC is the first thing it tries to read then you get a TOC error.

If you're lucky the TOC error is limited to a single minidisc; if this is the case then it's just one faulty disc and although there are ways to perform TOC cloning they usually involve hacking the host machine in various ways which may cause permanent damage. Unless the disc is important, just chuck it away and use a new one. If the fault is with the player then again, just chuck it into the nearest electronic waste recycling bin. Spares are not available, and as it's a Sharp, diagnosis will be difficult and the fault likely to return.

Many MD players are practically worthless these days so they're often available on FreeCycle and Freegle groups: Sony are the preferred choice by far, and are also the most commonly offered brand, but take whatever is on offer without complaint and worry about problems later; after all, they are free.

TOC ERRORa


When you FINISH recording, the Minidisc recorder Writes the TOC (Table of Contents) - so you see it flashing TOC or Update when you finish recording - you need to Leave POWER ON and have the unit on for about 30 seconds for it to finish this. IF you don't, the unit doesn't know where to find the files since there is no TOC. Try a Sony home unit - you might get one more shot at it working with that.

MD Error Message


I'm sorry this isn't much help, but I had the same problem with my 702 unit. From what I've read it's very common with this model - Sharp claims to have remedied the error with their 831 unit. Luckily, when I had this problem, my recorder was still under warranty and I have to say that Sharp fixed it promptly and returned it to me. Have you tried contacting them? Since it's a design flaw, they might be amenable to working something out with you...
