Customer Question

Using MDS JE520, disc error C 14 was signalled. I had earlier satisfactorily played a track on this disc and replaced it with another and was also able to play a track on the replaced disc. On re inserting the first disc, this error message occurred. I then inserted another disc to check whether the error would re occur but it did not and I was able to play the selected track. I reinserted the first disc again and the error message occurred again.
Please advise how to clear the error and restore use of the offending disc. Many thanks.

C14 means it can't read the disc.

Probably the laser or spindle motor is blown.

This is not a repairable fault.
