Hello there, I've purchased on

http://freeservicemanuals.info/en/servicemanuals/viewmanual/Sony/TC200 Go here. when the page opens, click on the TC200 to download the service manual. There are 3 tubes and one transistor in each channel. Test the tubes first. They fail with age. You can still get tubes. You just have to google the tube number to find a seller.

I have a sony TC 530. Fast fwd and rewind work

You need to replace the motor run capacitor. It's a small aluminum can looking thing with three wires right next to the motor; they often leak paraffin wax into the bottom of the case when they overheat. Whether or not yours has leaked it's easy to replace if you can use a soldering iron. Search eBay for a Sony reel to reel 1.5uf 250VAC motor run capacitor - they're less than $15 and come with detailed instructions.

I have a sony TC-660 reel to reel player, it had

In order to maintain tape control and tension the reels always pull lightly in opposite directions during PLAY mode. The capstan moves the tape in the desired direction at a precise speed. If the capstan doesn't engage the tape BETWEEN itself and the pinch roller you'll get the reels battling over control of the tape. Check the tape routing.

Hear both sides of tape on playback ??

It's a 4-head reversable deck where the Forward tracks are arranged across the physical tape surface, front-to-back as follows:

ForwardLeft ReverseRight ForwardRight ReverseLeft

...so it sounds like the Reverse playback heads are engaged at the same time you play Forward, so you would hear those adjacent tracks backward. If you play the tape in the Reverse direction, is the Forward program audible (but backward)?

If so and in otherwise high fidelity, something in the Forward/Reverse head selection may be hosed.

Or, if the out-of-phase tracks are mushy and low volume, the physical tracking of the tape across the heads could be WA-A-A-A-Y bad. That would probably be visible as sideways distortion in the tape path. Shine a high-intensity light on the tape where is passes over the heads, then reverse it while watching where it sets up on the heads. It should be centered on the heads and not change its orientation when reversed. Compare where it tracks in motion with the probable visible wear marks (shiny bars across the heads perpendicular to the travel) where the tape has polished the heads over the years.

Or, the heads are so worn the coils pick up signals from their neighboring tracks.

Reel to reel plays audio backwards

HAVE YOU TRIED TURNING THE REELS OVER? ON SOME PANASONIC UNITS THE REELS CAN BE PLAYED IN EITHER DIRECTION BUT THE SOUND IS REVERSED IF THE REELS ARE UP SIDE DOWN. TRY TURNING THE REELS OVER AND IT SHOULD STRAIGHTEN OUT YOUR AUDIO PROBLEM AS WELL AS BOOST THE VOLUME
