    Hi, new member, so apologies if it's the wrong place! And it may be a bit niche! I've picked up a Sony Minidisc recorder MZ-R70 which has an intermittent issue.

    A Minidisc player that beeps?

    Many apologies if I'm posting in the wrong place, it's my first day. I've got a Sony Minidisc player I've been trying to sell on eBay. Whilst testing to make sure it works, I tried to play a recordable MD I'd loaded some songs on, and all I could hear was a short tone followed by silence. The...

    Yamaha MDX minidisc Optical output

    I'm trying to rip my minidisc collection to FLAC using a Creative Labs Sound Blaster (SB1240). My old (and amazing, by the way) Yamaha MDX-596 - probably 17-18 years old - has an optical output that takes a Toslink cable and it works fine into the optical input of an amp, which means I assume...

    Technics minidisc St-HD501

    Hi Can anyone help please. I’ve had this player for 20 years. It’s been well looked after. Not used the minisdisc much in recent years. A few week ago I inserted a disc and seconds later the disc was ejected. On the display it said disc error N1 F15. I read that it could be dust. Gave it a...

    Retro-tech thread

    Hi all. After posting some pics of a Denon Minidisc deck I got off of Ebay on the 'recent purchase' thread, I was bowled over by the response. It seems Minidisc was a VERY well loved format, and probably the sight of a Minidisc deck brought back some memories... So I thought I'd try...

    Repair Minidisc HiFi separate in the UK/EU. Recommendations?

    Are there any individuals or companies known to AVForums users that I should consider for such a repair? This is a Denon unit from the mid-90s. The fault seems to be minor: the unit doesn't read discs for long or sometimes not at all. Thanks

    Sony Minidisc player - won't read minidisc - Error 13

    This seems to be a common error on minidisc players after a certain time (or probably period of non-use). You push the minidisc in - it says "Reading TOC" - BUT the minidisc doesn't spin round - and it is ejected with an "Error 13". I suspect it is some mechanical fault with the disc rotation...
