There is a good chance you cannot, belts are very hard to get, and if its sony, they are not always easy to get into and often have screws but also have clips, that break upon opening,

its probably better to but a replacment but that too will be hard,

you could try ebay for belt, but it may be better to get a 2nd hand one, or sometime u can get new ones, too

but stay away from aiwa they tend to break down, although offer the best sound, in my opnion

My walkman which was given to me by my dad way back,i decided to use it and though the indicator light turned on,it refused to play the cassette


the belt in the main drive as worn out as youhave kept it off from use. In period of time these belts age off and gets softened. There is now difficulty to get these small belts in the market after the arrival of the CD's and ipods. So carefully open the back side -only if precision work can be done than to spoil the gift-- remove the back ccover, the board and the belt can be seen. take sample to buy and replace in the same arrangement.

I have a sony walkman WM-3. It suddenly stopped playing. Do you do repairs ?


Please check for the belts if the battery you have installed is new and the set gives a hum on play. If not you will have to check the power switch, the mechanism switch and the line to the main board.
If the motor turns but not the capstan and the reel then change the belt, the rollers or the pulley. I hope this will get your set back to action. Good day

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

HI everyone, I need your help. I have change the black rubber band in the walkman but now when i play the tape it doesn't produce any sound.....On the other hand when i switch on the radio it has...


The black rubber bank is the belt that drives your motor to turn the capstan to eventtually turn the cassette. Now check if the motor is turning the capstan, the larger wheel over which you had wound up the belt. If not check if any connections have been detached when you did the belt change. Within the mechansim there is a small spring leaf switch that activates the motor and the circuits. so check this out or if you can use a multimeter to trace the voltage to the motor and circuit. If this was working prior to your work then look carefully for a careless lapse. I hope you must have wound the belt in the right direction. Helpful? Good day

It wont play tapes


If the walkman comes on but just wont play tapes then more offten then not the belt has broken or clutch has worn out and will have to be replaced.
you will have to open the walkman up in order to do it, you can get a new belt from any electronics parts supply store (not radioshack) there usualy around $1 and are easy to put on.
