Sony TCD D100 - Chewing Tapes?

My TCD D100 after not being used for a few years has started chewing tapes, Sony has quoted me $500 to fix it. I can get a 2nd hand one for half that. If anyone has any suggestions re: fixing it cheaper, please let me know or email me at spin_orbit@hotmail.com

I'm hoping it's like a vcr and there might be a simple fix, i.e. rotation at wrong speed due to buildup from lack of use?

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 an 8 track player that is playing the 8 tracks sped up. Also it chews some of the tape on some of them. This is two speaker stand 8 track player, One of the speakers carries the 8 track pocket. ...


Hi , it is good to hear someone in need a help for the 8 track player. I love this player, the mechanism and the sound quality due to the higher speed. Now you will need to open the set and mainly check on the pinch roller. This could be bad and to get a replacement might be difficult. so try to clean using go alcohol based solvent, clean up all the transport track area, the head and check also on the belt. make sure the tapes are not damaged as you will never get a replacement, i suggest that youmust make a copy soon. If the pinch roller bushes are worn out , it can wobble and push the tape down to chew, try to use a light emery paper to even the surface of the roller. I wish you luck and many happy hours of our old favourites. Helpful? Good day

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.
