20 Most Recent Sony CASSETTE DECK Single Dual Cassette Deck Questions & Answers

Typically when I need belts for the service business I operate and the unit is a bit strange or esoteric, I send an E mail to Fred Marrs and he comes up with the kit I need. It may not be the cheapest option but it take all the work out of your part of it. If you want to research the belts and order then individually you can save some money but there might be a lot of work involved.

This decks need a feedback from different sensors and switches, if something doesn't check, it aborts right away.
Check if all the mechanical switches are indeed working, if the circuits that read that switch are working, etc.

Belt slippage or excessive friction in drive. Roll up sleeves and check it out.

Mechanism need work and so there s nothing to be done except to bring it to a shop- these are all too complicated for a user to repair.

The mechanism get jammed due to lack of torque to move the parts required usually due to a stretched ( Loose) belt.

Marrs Communications is all you need to know about getting the right belts but putting them in is another subject.

Is the tape wrapped around the capstan?

Sony CASSETTE... | Answered on Apr 14, 2013

If you remove the cover after unplugging the AC, you will see that when you push the eject button that on the back side the putton is held back by a white plastic piece. Push down the white plastic piece as you press the eject button. The door will open and the tape will release. I jsut did this today on my Sony TC WR 670 dual tape player. Both sides were blocked. I noticed that both fuses on the board were also blown. New fuses didn't solve the problem. May be that the transformer is out?

Have you tried visiting the Sony web site, Cathy? I'm sure they have a web site.

Sony CASSETTE... | Answered on Jun 23, 2012

I can give you this link. You can download the service manual of this Sony. I hope it will be usable for you.
When you get to the site using the link it is possible that you have to wait a little bit to be able to download.
After waiting you should see a button as "Get Manual" and simply click on it and save the file.

You will need a service manual for that model. Task not recommended for novice -- take to pro/tech
