If you can get the part from an electronics supply (we have a place here in my medium sized Canadian city). Once you obtain the part it just takes patience and a natural ability at puzzles to be able to replace it. Perhaps you should remove the old one first to be able to size it.

More than likely a rubber drive belt has broken. Sometimes a rubberband will provide a very temporary fix. I am not sure of your application of the cassette player, however digitizing your tapes and putting them on a thumb drive may help with aging technology along with purchasing a digital recorder of some type.

    The tape cassette motor belts in my Sony CFD510 BoomBox broke and turned to goo. It took an hour to clean it off. I just replaced the belts with a couple of rubber bands I treated with Armor All protectant and it works now. Can't say how long they will last, but rubber bands are cheap; you can even get them for nothing.

My Sony CFD SO1 keeps skipping/display light keeps flashing


That is an electronic problem. Probably a just-about-to-break cable in the motor of the CD drive, that sometimes causes a short and turns off the unit, or sometimes makes it to comport erratically and produce the buzzy sound. If you have electronics knowledge, then you may open and check the wiring harnesses. If don't, take it to your local electronics repair.

Glen,

These types of radios typically use a very similar power cord. Your local electronics store will carry it. IF you want to order online, try MCM Electronics.

When I press play, my tape player eats the tape.


that means that the uptake wheel is not turning. typically this is caused by a rubber band that is insde the transport mechanism that connects the motor to the wheel.

if you are comfortable taking the device apart, you will need to find the right band and just pop it on.

I need information on how to operate a tape in my machine. I can insert the tape, and push the button to start it playing, but the tape does not play. Which of the 6 buttons will get the tape to play?


My solution was to get my son to e-mail me the list of instructions that I couldn't find with my machine. The instructions, although vague, were very helpful!
