Hi m522posner

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. :)

You could have a go at freshening up the belts yourself:)

SOURCE: Sony TC-530 hum in internal amplifier left channel.

Electrolytic capacitors are good at causing hum. You could try replacing some of them, they are not expensive. Otherwise you might have damaged the left channel amp semiconducter, whatever that might be.

Tape drags toward end of reel


Unplug the unit.
You probably have a brake band thet keeps the reel from free spinning. It's located under the top cover plate of the tape recorder. The band is made of cork. Over the years, it probably just got a buildup of dirt. It can be cleaned off with rubbing alcohol. Don't pull on it, it will snap. The piece you are looking for will be located right under the left reel post.
