Re: both tape compartments will not eject. Mod. TC-WR535.

I just got two tapes out of my WR535 this morning. I removed the top cover by taking out the screws on the lower sides. It was obvious that the drive belts were stretched out. This seems to be preventing the doors from opening, as the transport mechanism seems to be in PLAY mode without the belts functioning. WIth the cover off you'll be able to see the mechanism that opens the door. There's a small nylon piece that prevents the mechanism from opening the door. Push it downwards with a small screwdriver and the OPEN button will function. You can now retrieve your tapes. I was just looking online for a service manual to see if it's worth trying to change the belts. Not sure yet. Good luck! Dan

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?

My Sony TC WR 535 wont open doors, one cassette in deck B,lights blinked in display panel then unit shut down, not been able to turn it on since

Remove the cover after unplugging AC. Look for a plastic stop that keeps the eject button from going in farther. Move the plastic stop peice downward and the buttom will then move in all the way and tape will eject. On mine the plastic piece is white and rotates down.

Sony TC WR565 dual tape deck. Both doors will not

you can not fix it without tearing it apart. if you do take it apart, try to get the front panel off. Hit the eject button and look for a lever that is stuck.

Sony tc-wr535 won't eject. Tape stuck. Won't play cassette on either deck A or B .makes noises but won't FF or play, gets stuck and wont eject. Will belt conditioner work? What do I use?

The problem, according to messages on your site, is that the belts are old and have stretched. There is a great step by step tutorial on with pictures and all. Parts are not too hard to find on search engine. Looks like less than $25 to fix.

Cassette Tape stuck

The problem here is that the unit is stuck in a partial position. The "reset" by unplugging and plugging back in usually causes the unit to reset to a known position. If there is no activity (no motor sound), it will need to be opened up and reset manually. If you hear the motor running for a short period, it is attempting to reset, but the belt is most likely worn or broken. These units are relatively simple, but a bit tricky to dis-assemble. This repair should not require anything other than a belt or 2. Figure on $3-$10 for parts plus the local labor rate for the repair.

Replacing drive belts on Sony TC-WR535

I am having the same problem with a Sony K717 ES. I found
this site above where they have the service manual for every tape cassette known to man. They ask that you make a donation to
a charity and then they will email you the pdf for free.
