I couldn't find any information for that Model #. Cassette players are, for the most part, getting phased out with the development of CD's and MP3's. Their most current model isn't even available to purchase any longer. Sony Customer Support may be able to help you get the belts you need.

You can reach Sony Electronics Customer Support by going to http://www.sony.com/support or by calling 1-888-476-6972.

Cassette deck stops immediately after pressing play


It is likely that the rubber drive belts have deteriorated and will have to be replaced to restore operation.

Hi,
Tape players have several rubber belts in it and if we do not use them frequently belts loosen and become useless and they need to be replaced... . To accomplish this however you need some sort of handy man ability.. Take out the metal cover of the player by removing the screws on the sides .after removing the cover you can access the tape head /transport mechanism. if you look carefully to underneath of tape transport you will see the motor unit which belts will be there...check the belts for the moving mechanism and make sure the belts are not loosen / worn out or broken . You can replace it with a new one that may available in radio Shack stores. Take care..and let me know if it does not work out..
Take care and please Remember to rate/vote for us to

I have a older model record player/8-track/cassette/radio stereo. It have been in an attick in the box for many years. The record player does not turn - it is very stiff. I can manually turn it with my...


A combination of heat and dirt is "public enemy #1" for electronic devices. Most people's attics are loaded with both.

A thorough cleaning followed by careful lubrication may bring the record player or "turntable" back to life - but it will most likely need to be done while at least partially disassembled. A few drops on the center spindle from above is no guaranty that the oil will seep underneath the platter - as most are solid parts. You didn't include a name and model number so I can only speak in generalities rather than specifically to your model.

Much of both the tape drive mechanisms rely on rubber drive belts. These belts look like simple rubber bands but are not (and will not work when replaced with rubber bands either - I know - I've tried). The drive belts, like most simple rubber bands will dry out very quickly and break in the extreme heat found in attics in the summer. Similarly, many turntables are belt driven, too. The belts for those, while longer and thicker, will suffer the same fate in those conditions. Inspection and replacement of these belts seldom can be done without some dis-assembly. The turntables that are direct drive do not have these belts. The drive motors for both types of turntables may benefit from one or two drops of sewing machine oil (or other light, thin oil) applied at the point the drive shaft meets the motor housing. Anything that turns or rubs against other moving or stationary parts can also receive a single drop of oil. Do not over do it - and wipe away excess oil as oil attracts dust and dirt.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

Hi, I have an old Fisher CR-25 Cassette recorder player which stopped working. I opened it up and found that the drive belt had decided to start to dissolve [actually get very soft etc.] I'd replace the...


Although Fisher has been a manufacturer of fine audio products for many years, like most audio, their products are mostly centered around digital systems rather than analog. It is doubtful you will find the belt you need. I would contact a TV repair shop. Many still have supplies of this type belt. In the mean time, since you are already inside the machine, try a rubber band about 3/4's the the length from the motor to the capstan. That should make a pretty good temporary fix for a while. Good luck!
