I originally posted this in the regular walkman section, should have posted here because it is a tech issue.

I picked up a Sony WM-SXF10 yellow sports walkman from eBay recently (model shown in the photo)

I used to have one of these way back when I was in elementary school and loved it. The thing was built like a tank, and you can have the cover open while a tape is playing (great for bending purposes).

This particular one I have now unfortunately has a really bad warbling during playback. I'm not sure exactly why that is happening. Before I bust the thing open I figured I'd check on here if anyone else owns one of these or is familiar with how to fix that issue.

These walkmans tend to need new belts because belts are very thin and stretch easily from old age. ;-)
