Question about Personal Cassette Players

Open Question

Sony Walkman WM-F77 will not play cassettes.

I have a Sony Walkman WM-F77. It's an AM/FM portable stereo with Auto Reverse.

When trying to play a cassette, the two spindles that are supposed to turnthe reels of the tape do not move at all. Sometimes they move very slowlyand produce a distorted sound. It cannot play, rewind, fastforward, and auto reverse produces the weirdest results.

However, the spindles move fine when there is no cassette in the deck. Also the radio works fine. I'd like to take it apart and fix it. Does someone have a manual, or has fixed this problem before?

Hello aga2958,
I think you need to visit maintenance center to fix that cause its hardware problem.
But you can check somethings before u visit them .. like:
1. If you are using Batteries to power up the Walkman .. be sure the batteries are full charged.
2. Try to power on the Walkman by Adapter 3 Volts.
3. Be sure the tapes you are using are fine into other Cassette.
Thanks for using FixYa.
