Sony TCD-D8 DAT drum not spinning

I just got this portable DAT and when I hit play or rewind/ff, the unit powers off and back on. Seems the drum is not spinning. I don't hear any motor noise other than the transport loading. Does anyone know of a service manual link? Also if anyone knows a way of displaying head hours? Thanks.

Won't respond to good batteries


Check and clean the contacts.
Also if you take the back cover off, you can see the red and black battery wires connected to the board. Make sure they are connected.

Distortion!


did you record them on the same unit?
It may be an alignment problem.
If it's the same unit, try cleaning the heads.
There are dat cleaning tapes too, but they beat on the heads.

Repair Sony DAT Walkman?


The "solution" by techman appears to be entirely inappropriate because the link he posts takes one to a company that repairs data storage units, NOT Digital Audio Tape (DAT) recorders.
