Question about Sony Walkman WM-D6C Personal Cassette Player

2 Answers

Sony Walkman cassette player/recorder will not rewind the tape

I have a Sony Walkman WM-D6 Professional machine from the 1980s, very little used and in almost brand new condition. However, the rewind/reverse button has suddenly ceased to function so that the machine now only runs forwards and the tape cannot be rewound.

It records and plays perfectly in all other respects.

Is this a simple mechanical malfunction that is easily remedied or something more complex in the electronic controls?

    have used the player very little and not for a long time. Same problem occurred suddenly. Wonder whether the rewind and fast forward (cue) are belt driven because the mechanical movements seem to happen and every other function works

My Sony Walkman Professional WM-D6C will turn on but the take-up spindle just slowly inches the tape along in short bursts, not a continious action.


Contact me at my email doctor.walkman @ gmail.com, I'll ask you some questions and some photos of the WM-D6C in his possession. We will solve the problem

The power is on but the motor will not turn the tape drive. Does anyone know a good repair shop?


Hmm, when you press play, can you feel the motor turning, do the spindles turn on fast forward or rewind? If so you may have one of two problems. First check to see if the cue button is is depressed. If it is jammed, the deck will FF and RR but won't play. If it's not that, but the motor still spins, the motor is no longer making contact with the flywheel. If you have a repair manual, dismantle the deck and check out the motor contact

Sony Walkman cassette tape player operating at slower speed


If this is the WMD6C then it is servo locked and can be fine tuned with the pitch control on the back of the unit just turn the switch to on then adjust to preferred speed.

My Sony Walkman WM -SR10 is not recording and the cassette tape is not working. Only the radio is player. And I cannot get another one to buy even its not the same. Can you help me


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.

Plays too fast


WMD6C has a pitch control on the back of the unit that can change the speed of the tape, so switch it off, but if that is not the problem then inside the unit it has a servo set speed pot on the main board.
