Speziell für diesen Teardown benötigte Werkzeuge


My first Handheld Device. A Sony FM/AM Tape Cassette Walkman. It has Digital Controls for the Radio /Alarm Clock on the front and Old school cassette controls on the side. Found it again in a Logitech Tape Case with a Live Medski, Martin and Wood show from 99 in it. Runs on 2 AA batteries. This Walkman was my first Portbale device and I've kept it through all these years. Tis officially my first breakdown on IFIXIT

Start with removing the screw on the Underside. The screw on the Backside next. Then the two on the reverse side of the tape controls.

  • Take care not to jostle the Switches on the top of the unit while removing case. So now we have removed the underside casing from the device.

  • If you do not need to replace the front door control assembly I would not suggest to continue any further- That little spring took me a good 40 minutes to properly get back in place. It is Crucial to get it in right so that the Cassette door stays flush and closed.

  • Find Door Spring and remove carefully. Then find and pry off (on either side) glued on bumpers- These limit the distance the door hinge can travel in order to be pulled off---

  • Now gently pry the door hinges on either side off of their pivot point, and remove the front door from the assembly

  • Remove three screws on backside of cassette door. Then remove panel.

  • There is your front mounted control board! It is attached to what appears to be a speaker i'm guessing. Possibly for the alarm clock. I found that to be interesting, the little speaker thing. Anyways , thats it.
