Question about Sony Walkman WM-FX290 Personal Cassette Player
Sony walkman wm-fx290w. after 5 weeks of use, the tape speed has slowed to where the sound is warbling and distorts. this is the 2nd one i've had that has done exactly this after short term use. not about batteries or old tapes. doesn't matter what tape is in. is this consistent with all wm-fx 290w's? what can i do on my end? i have some general mechanical knowledge.
Motor belts are cheap. try replacing the belt that drives the wheel. this become distorted specially when the unit has not been use for quit long time. if you think its not about belt, clean up the rubber that touches the tape when played, also the tape head with 70% alcohol. hope this help.
