Audio Cassette Players
Does anyone still play cassettes? Well some people do; because even with CD’s, there’s nothing like the flexibility of magnetic tape. Some people have much loved ageing boom boxes or treasured old walkman personal steros. The problem is cassette players do wear out. The belts and pinch rollers are prone to wearing out, as are the motors. When that happens tape decks tend to start playing at the wrong speed. Which is irritating enough when playing, it is even worse for recording. Often these are parts which if sourceable can be replaced.
The DIY directory is intended if you already know a friend who could fix your machine, if they had the right parts.
