Cassette Deck emits high-pitched whine

Hello;
I recently acquired a Sony TC-WR99ES dual cassette deck, that I use to transcribe irreplaceable elements of my music collection over to digital via DAW. Recently, about half-way through a session, the unit began emitting a high-pitched whine, that would only go away when I switched the unit off and back on. Then about 2-3 takes later, it would start up again. The playback checked fine, no artifacts whatsoever.

Since I've performed no servicing on the unit since purchased, I assume it may have been stored for an extended period of time, and that motor bearings or other moving parts may have dried up. I plan to open it up, and maybe lube moving parts, and wonder what sort of lubrication I should consider.

Thanks,

I like Silcone grease for this kind of thing. It's sold at electric shops such as Maplin (UK).

Hookup soney duel tape deck to onkyo equalizer


If you are trying to equalize the sound from one half to the other ... you cannot, unless there are separate INPUT and OUTPUT jacks on the back. Otherwise you will need a second cassette deck.

Where can I have my 15 year old Sony Model TC-WR465 Stereo Tape Deck Repaired? The problem appears to be mechanical. The tapes will not advance on either side of the unit.


Depend on your location and willingness to ship the unit. The cost of the repair must also be weighed in. If you don't want to put $100 into it I don't think most shops these days will want to open it up. Dual cassette deck are notorious for failure due to cheap design. Look around at all the problems. I have been fixing units for 40 years and even at Sony and Sony authorized.
I can look at it at Skywave Tape Deck Repair in Chicago area if you want. Google it.

I have a duel cassette player sony model # TC-WR 565. The doors will not open and both casettes cannot be removed even after prying the door open.


Mine did that - you will have to patiently keep pressing the clear / stop / pause / etc and even power cycle a few (or many) times and finally you will hear the mechanism release the cassette. Once you hear that - you will be able to eject the cassette. After that go replace the belts.
