Question about Coby CX-C21 Personal Cassette Player

Cassette vs MP3.

I have had a walkman for a few years and have been satisfied with it. Lately, all the people around me encourage me to buy an MP3 player instead. I'm not sure: An MP3 player has more functions, but a cassette played is much cheaper and tapes can be recorded very easily for someone who's not a techie, as I am. What do you think? I am not a computer person, and am afraid it will be too difficult for me to handle.

Re: Cassette vs MP3.

Yancyyy, Your conflict is understood. These MP3 players really do seem scary for us non-tech people. My granddaughter bought me one for Christmas and I was pretty scared. But she taught me how to use it and overall I am pretty satisfied. I think it's worth the price. Of course, it's only my opinion. If you don't think you have someone who will be able to help you get along with your player, perhaps you should stick to your old cassette player. Good luck!

Re: Cassette vs MP3.


Another thing to consider is the sound quality aspect. You will get a much greater level of fidelity from a high-end Walkman player than any mp3 player can give you.

If sound is important then I would stick with what you have. Not always is newer better in the world of audio reproduction...

It wont play tapes

If the walkman comes on but just wont play tapes then more offten then not the belt has broken or clutch has worn out and will have to be replaced.
you will have to open the walkman up in order to do it, you can get a new belt from any electronics parts supply store (not radioshack) there usualy around $1 and are easy to put on.

Turn walkman off

If it's a tape player with a stop button it should turn off by just pressing stop. If there is a radio then there then there should be an off position where you select if you want to listen to the radio or listen to the tape.

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.

Sony Walkman NW A1000

iTunes records in a format that isn't recognized by the walkman. the file extension for iTunes is WMF which is a Windows Metafile. You'll need to convert it to mp3 to listen to it.

WM-D6C Battery holder

Because of the age of the unit, Sony will not carry that part. However, keep an eye on E-bay and yard sales and thrift stores and hopefully you can pick one up real cheap. Good Luck
