Looks like you went offline, I switched to Q+A sorry for the long wait

My name is ***** ***** I can help you with your problem

To get started I put a Service Manual in my dropbox please download it, page 69 shows a exploded view of the tape drive. Thus should give you a good idea of the efforts.

The degree of difficulty is5 out of 10 all you need is a good set of screw drivers.

This is not a very dificult repair, unfortunitly the radio tv service buisiniss seams to disapear and local repair shops seem to be harder to find.

Check out this link for repair places but make sure to contact them first.

Also feel free to download the manual if not already done and give it to the shop. It will help to find the parts and then they dont have to look for it.
