My sony player is old but still works if you tape the doors where the tape goes in shut. It's becoming a problem because: 1. it looks ugly commpared to the  rest of the stereo  2. its hard to posision the door right to close it and stick it down
it all works when i tape it shut but is there any way this can be fixed
-Thanks

Are both sides not staying shut? If it's only one side, look to see if the latch is broken. You should see an arm move when you press down the eject button - while the door is open, press the eject button and see where the arm moves. You should see a hook that catches the door and keeps it closed. It could be broken, or just jammed. Look at the other side of the deck and see it it looks like it's working the same. Unjam the latch arm if it's stuck, or replace it if it's broken.

Do I need an amp for my 3head sony real to real tape recorder


You do need an amp of some kind. On the back of the deck will be RCA sockets, in the red and white ones you plug a line cable to the audio in sockets of an amp or receiver. The other two sockets are record. They go to the audio out of the amp.

Sony TC-WR690 doors will not open to remove the cassette.


If you remove the cover after unplugging the AC, you will see that when you push the eject button that on the back side the putton is held back by a white plastic piece. Push down the white plastic piece as you press the eject button. The door will open and the tape will release. I jsut did this today on my Sony TC WR 670 dual tape player. Both sides were blocked. I noticed that both fuses on the board were also blown. New fuses didn't solve the problem. May be that the transformer is out?

Deck a dont play or rewind or fast forwed


The unit needs service but may not be worth the cost of the job. Dual cassette decks in all brands are constructed very poorly- that is why I do not own one but have dozens of other good decks that still work after 30 years.

When I play a tape on a Sony TCW475 dual cassette tape recorder/player there is this loud clunking noise as it begins to play. How can I fix this? It is brand new.


If the clunking is in the deck itself and not in the speakers, it's actually probably normal.
This "clunking" is the unit electro-mechanically lifting the heads into place.
