Question about Sony Walkman WM-D6C Personal Cassette Player

2 Answers

My nephew connected my Walkman Pro WM-D6C to a 20V laptop power adapter. Needless to say there was a spark and it no longer runs. Is there an internal fuse that has blown or is the problem likely to be more serious? Any advice gratefully received.

Unfortunately, there is probably no fuse protection, since batteries or a low voltage power supply is used. If it does have a fuse, it will be in line with the battery and power supply line, and most likely be in the form of a fusible link, which is merely a low ohm resister, usually about 1 ohm. You have nothing to lose by checking for it, but most likely the ics are blown, and this renders it impracticle to have it fixed.
Wish there was a more optomistic answer, but good luck, and you might get lucky if you check into it.

Unfortunately the problem is more serious, it probably fried the whole internal circuitry, especially if there was a spark =(. I'm assuming this unit is fairly old, otherwise I'd say you could try to claim it under warranty, although it was technically "user damage". I think your best bet is to hop on ebay and get a replacement unit. You could also sell your fried one on ebay for "parts" just make sure to list it AS IS, or FOR PARTS and someone will surely pick it up to use for replacement parts for their broken unit.

I am so sorry to be the bearer of bad news. If you desire, you can call SONY and get this confirmed, or see if they can repair the unit: 239-768-7547

My Sony Walkman Professional WM-D6C will turn on but the take-up spindle just slowly inches the tape along in short bursts, not a continious action.


Contact me at my email doctor.walkman @ gmail.com, I'll ask you some questions and some photos of the WM-D6C in his possession. We will solve the problem

While trying to rewind or fast forward, it stops before reaching the end, and I have to restart it.

Plays too fast


WMD6C has a pitch control on the back of the unit that can change the speed of the tape, so switch it off, but if that is not the problem then inside the unit it has a servo set speed pot on the main board.
