Hello all;

I've searched other sites, and figured I'd bounce this off my fellow head-fiers.

We had a province wide power outage on the weekend, and, as i always do, i unplug my stero equipment. But when i plugged my MD Deck back in, all I got was the green power light, not the red standby light. Everything except the MD deck was plugged into an ultimate outlet.

I can't get the unit to do anything, no lights except greeen power light, and wonder if there's a way to zap the internal battery to reset the unit. (I'm thinking computer here-zapping the PRAM in a mac to reset).

Any suggestions will be appreciated. While i use my MDs less as I transition to the ipod, I have hundreds of MDs I hope to enjoy for years.

Many thanks

Matt

Have you tried unplugging it for a while? Whenever my 20 goes bonkers I do that and it seems to work fine afterwards although I've never had your problem. maybe search/ask over at www.minidisct.com/forum or forums.minidisc.org
