Where can I get my sony walkman repaired? It does


Sure you can get it done at the nearest electronic service centre unless you wantt it to be done at the authorised service centre. But if you can be confident check your bateries, check your belts within the set and replace them with the correct size. It is possible to get this done if you can do it patiently and maybe a helping hand. Good luck Good day

No functions works....


This sounds like the internal drive belt has broken and the mechanism is not in a "final" position. The noise you hear is hte motor trying to get the mechanism back to a known condition. This should be a simple repair for any audio repair shop. Expect a parts cost in the $5 range. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost.

Won't respond to good batteries


Check and clean the contacts.
Also if you take the back cover off, you can see the red and black battery wires connected to the board. Make sure they are connected.

Distortion!


did you record them on the same unit?
It may be an alignment problem.
If it's the same unit, try cleaning the heads.
There are dat cleaning tapes too, but they beat on the heads.

Repair Sony DAT Walkman?


The "solution" by techman appears to be entirely inappropriate because the link he posts takes one to a company that repairs data storage units, NOT Digital Audio Tape (DAT) recorders.
