Customer Question
I have a Denon...

I have a Denon 980F Mini Disc player and am getting an error code 40 on it. What should I do?

Technician's Assistant: Is your 980F system connected to or paired with anything?

No

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your 980F?

I set the servo to high gain, but that didn't solve the issue

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Theater Expert to know before I connect you?

I am trying to play a mini disc recorded on a Sony machine

This can happen when the motor wears out, and it will need to be replaced.

You can arrange a repair through your local Denon dealer, or online at
