Of course, I have to start with the obvious. Try changing batteries and headset and see how that helps.

I would get some cleaning solution called deoxit, and clean the battery leads. Also coat the headphone jack with it and put the jack into the player. Recoat and try again. Twist the jack around, it should help distribute the solution.

If the static is caused by a poor connection, that should clear it up.

When I turn up the sound a horrible buzzing noise comes on . When I opened the battery section one of them was corroded. I cleaned it up it worked fine for awhile .Now the buzzing.Help me.


it is possible that the battery electrolyte had leaked into your main printed board and partially shorted or createda bridged connection in the audio section resulting in the buzzing or howling. What could be done is to wash the PCB ALONE with petrol , do not let it fall on any gear or plastci or dial, but use a small tooth brush to dip and clean the PCB, dry the pcb, Use a soldering iron to melt off bad soldering due to the electrolyte and make a good joint onthe smeared section. clean your contacts and test. I hope this must work out well. Repeat otherwise. Helpful. Good day

We changed the batteries but I am still getting static and in and out music....does my Walkman need to be repaired? FS393..are 2 AA enough?


Please do a good cleaning off the head the rollers and the transport section., This will remove off all the static noise to be relayed to the head. make sure you use a reliable solvent to do all the clean up. make sure the reel and drives are working fine. also the pinch rollers are running without chewing the tape. If so replace the rollers and the belts. Hope this helps.Good day

I have XM radio hooked to cassette player adapter in my car. The new adapter keeps sounding like it is rewinding. XM plays for 30 seconds and then ''rewinds'' again, over and over.


Unfortunately your tape play has the auto reverse feature. It is detecting that the tape is not turning via a reel counter. Sensing no movement ( as you have an audio adaptor inserted rather than a real tape) it is trying to switch to the other side of the tape.
Not very much you can do.
You could purchase an FM modulator and basically re-transmit the Xm over an un-used frequency on the FM band to slve your problem

My Sony Walkman WM -SR10 is not recording and the cassette tape is not working. Only the radio is player. And I cannot get another one to buy even its not the same. Can you help me


Hello aga2958,
I think you need to visit maintenance center to fix that cause its hardware problem.
But you can check somethings before u visit them .. like:
1. If you are using Batteries to power up the Walkman .. be sure the batteries are full charged.
2. Try to power on the Walkman by Adapter 3 Volts.
3. Be sure the tapes you are using are fine into other Cassette.
Thanks for using FixYa.
