Hi - You can download the manual from the link underlined in blue below:

MDS-JE480

The error you have is probably:



din unlock - 4fb5690.jpg

This means that you are trying to record from the Digital Input, if you want to record from an analogue input do the following:

Mini disk player JES510 want to record some midi tracks using the optical link. keeps saying din unlock & then if try says cannot record. How can I overcome this? Help appreciated.


Like most home recorders the minidisc will not let you make digital copies of a digital original. The idea is to prevent piracy of copyrighted material.

Unfortunately, that includes digital tracks you yourself made,

Just go through the analog inputs. It will sound fine.

PS - professional minidisc recorders will let you record digitally, but they are expensive.

My mini disc player is displaying din unlock c71 i cannot record


You have probably chosen a source which is not active, there are other reasons but usually your selector switch is set to a dead input with nothing to record from.

Din Unlock - Unable to record


You must have the unit switched to "DIGITAL" input - switch it to "ANALOG" and record that way. The "DIN UNLOCK" is when you have the lack of a proper digital signal, or a digital signal with copy protection, like you cannot make a digital copy of a digital Minidisc, etc...Does that make sense? Let me know if the "Analog" setting works for you. Good luck.

Won't record...says din lock


I'd say you have the digital input selected. The player does not see a digital signal and gives such message.
Select the analog input and you should be able to record.

Hope this helps.
