Question about Sony Walkman WM-D6C Personal Cassette Player

1 Answer

Motor is ALWAYS running on this thing?

Hi, I have just recently found one WM D6C in a pawn shop, hoping to replace my now dead WM-D3. I do not know much of this machine, besides its normal functions (first use and never seen the manual.) The machine of very early revision (1st I think: 87XXX.) The first thing I noticed when I added new batteries is the motor spinning (without anything engaged). I found the Walkman is able to play my IEC 2 tapes well, and all other functions work (pause,dolby, etc) and responsive to ''speed control''. I believe this means the servo circuits are fine?

I noticed when I took it apart to check the rubber belts and flywheel that the motor is purposefully disengaged from the flywheel. So is it possible that the machine was designed to have motor continuously run?

Please tell me if this is normal before I start hunting for schematics and tracing the circuits. Thanks in advance

My sony wm-d6c appears to be running at double speed can I fix this easily


Your set is running wild because the motor has lost the regulation.Hence you will need to replace the motor. It is also possible that the belt had jumped and got into the large end of the pulley to make the capstan spin higher. So remove and check both of these sectiions and confirm. Hope this sorrt yourr fault.Good day

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 @ gmail.com, I'll ask you some questions and some photos of the WM-D6C in his possession. We will solve the problem

The power is on but the motor will not turn the tape drive. Does anyone know a good repair shop?


Hmm, when you press play, can you feel the motor turning, do the spindles turn on fast forward or rewind? If so you may have one of two problems. First check to see if the cue button is is depressed. If it is jammed, the deck will FF and RR but won't play. If it's not that, but the motor still spins, the motor is no longer making contact with the flywheel. If you have a repair manual, dismantle the deck and check out the motor contact

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
