Sony PMC-DR50 Shelf System - need help installing new belts

I removed the assemmbly that contains the cassette player and can see the worn/stretched belts. The long belt and short belts cam off the pulleys. My question is as follows: How do I remove the old belts and install the new ones. There is a small square cover with a round component on top (posibly a drive motor?) preventing the removal and re-installation of the belts. How should I proceed from here? Thanks in advance, Agape

Hi FIXYA the pannel display on my Sony PMC-MD55 Shelf System is not showing corectlly ,i see half numbers and half letters ,do i need to replace the whole display or is it an electric pb , i will...

Seems that the display is faulty and should be replaced as a whole assembly. You can check if the linking cord is faulty and if the power supply to the display is correct.

Where do I get drive belts for a aiwa xr-m10 cassette player

Try eBay, i've been looking for these on the internet, they sell kits (long and short variety), containing several pairs of different measures (about $7 per kit), and are supposed to fit various brands and models (including aiwa).

...a hint: a belt measure tells you the diameter of the circle formed by that belt

...another hint: old belts are loose, which means they are a bit longer than the new ones, so when you select the new belt from the kit, it should be a bit shorter than the one you removed from the deck (old belt - bigger circle, new belt - smaller circle).

I'm aware that not all aiwa models are the same, the one i was repairing a while ago had a double tape deck, each deck containing two belts, one long and one short, they were a bit tricky to change, but i didn't need to disassemble any of the mechanisms, i just had to remove both decks from the housing for easier access to the belts which required prior removal of the top cover and rear panel. After that it was some 4 to 6 screws and 4 connectors (just about half less in your case, i believe).
I can't tell what your unit looks like on the inside, but in my opinion aiwas are relatively easy to take apart, but then again, i could be wrong...

Hope this helps you get closer to a solution.

Hi. Make sure the flywheel turns freely and that the capstan pin and pressure roller are clean. If this is OK then it is more than likely that the belt is stretched, dried out or generally worn. These parts only have a certain usable life and are quite cheap to replace.

Cassette player will not work

common fault on the JVC tape decks is the belt stretch and then it does a clicking sound its trying to pick up the audio heads. changing the belt is quite hard if you have`nt done it before.
