Question about Sony Walkman WM-D6C Personal Cassette Player

2 Answers

WM-D6C in ex condition ... only there's no power at all ... can anyone help or recommend someone who can repair it in the UK?

Hello I've got a Sony Walkman WM-D6C. To look at it's in mint condition, there's no corrosion around the battery area or anything (in fact I'd be surprised if it had been used much at all) ... there is one BIG problem with it though ... there's no power at all when switched on. I know this is a long shot, but does anyone know what might be wrong with it (and, yes, I did put new batteries in it!) or alternatively recommend someone in the UK who might be able to fix it. Thanks.

Most ac adapters have a positive center. The Sony has a negative center. Someone may have reversed the polarity by using the wrong adapter which would damage the recorder. I once did this with a Sony camcorder and it had to be repaired.

My Sony Walkman Professional WM-D6C will turn on but the take-up spindle just slowly inches the tape along in short bursts, not a continious action.

Contact me at my email doctor.walkman @, I'll ask you some questions and some photos of the WM-D6C in his possession. We will solve the problem

Plays too fast

WMD6C has a pitch control on the back of the unit that can change the speed of the tape, so switch it off, but if that is not the problem then inside the unit it has a servo set speed pot on the main board.

WM-D6C Battery holder

Because of the age of the unit, Sony will not carry that part. However, keep an eye on E-bay and yard sales and thrift stores and hopefully you can pick one up real cheap. Good Luck
