Modifying the Sony PCM-D50. Recently got the PCM-D50, a great machine indeed, surpassing my expectation as to build, features and quality of recording. Was dismayed about 2 things: The batteries have to be taken out to be charged, and there is no indication that the recorder is turned on once it goes to standby. Being an expert electronics tech (in addition to being a sound engineer), I solved both problems.

Now I don't need to remove the batteries for charging, they are charged by the supplied Sony wall power unit when plugged in, and the 'access' LED always glows at ½ brilliance to indicate the recorder is 'ON', while consuming less than 1% of the recorder power consumption. While the internal modifications are not complicated, I would not advise anyone except for experts in miniature electronics to poke around inside.

I am willing to do the modifications for a modest fee. Contact me at: Eldad@HVC.RR.com
