Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Posted by Anonymous on
Yes, Bob can do it, Russ in New Jersey can do it and I am in Chicago.
It is not hard to replace belts but that is not the only thing it will need. It is likely going to need brake pads, lubrication and some other parts to be recondition like the capstan shaft. Calibration would be needed as the age of the components will have changed. Changing just the belts just gets it going.

If you are not familiar with such work, I don't recommend trying to install belt(s). Replacing belts may involve disassembly of mechanism parts and critical adjustments to follow. Take to a pro/tech

There is a surprising interest in "vintage" hifi products these days. Your tape machines probably needs new belts. Check this site out. You can get spares for your tape machine here. Belt kits are $17. He does repairs also, but the transport to and from may be an issue for you. I suggest emailing Bob, he may be able to refer you to someone in CA > I could do the repairs,but I am in Australia. :)
