I own 4 of these walkmans that detach from a boombox, and only one works properly. One plays a tape fine, does fast forward and reverse, but I cannot get any sound out of it. I cleaned the head, and ran a demagnetizer across the head, and it does not make a sound. any ideas?
The second one looks like it was never used. These all were sold new in either 1983 or 1984, so they are pretty old. It does fast forward and reverse fine with the tape in, it will play and turn the little spindle without the tape but when a tape is put in the tape does not turn in the play mode. Any ideas of how I can get the tape to turn in the play mode?
