Hi everyone,

I am from India and need help reassembling the mechanism of my beloved Boombox RX 5150. Can anyone familiar with the mechanism help me with some guidance please?

Regards,
kasatish

Yes, the tape deck mechanism was giving me some sleepless nights, but was finally able to get it working like a dream again. Some part time technician had disassembled it and could not figure out how to put it back again. Thanks for responding.

Regards,

I also need to know where and what type of pinch roller to use on the 5150 Panasonic.

Pinch Roller size usually standard on most boomboxes. Left one is for many walkmans and right for boomboxes.Attached File  Screenshot_2017-02-11-11-44-35.png   240.68K   1 downloads

Thanks very much badboybill. I could not find info this detailed. Got a few pinch rollers as left over stock from a thrift shop.
