That's a really broad question; you're doing a good job, here, by asking specifically for what you need help with. Sadly "how do I get the belt on there" has a broad answer - you just have to keep disassembling until you see a way through.

I really don't mean to be snarky or rude.

"Water based solutions to clean the inside" where did you get this strange notion?

For general cleaning, use 99% isopropyl.

For contacts and switches, use Deoxit.

Basically - if you have specific questions, then people can do their best to help you. There isn't any "HERE'S HOW TO FIX OLD TAPE DECKS" guide out there.

If you're looking for cassettes you can still buy new, the Sony HF and the Maxell UR are your best bet. They're perfectly fine for recording onto, not the greatest tapes in the world obviously but they get the job done.

I think walmart sells Maxell UR's in store as well, if you want to buy them in person.

I highly recommend picking up one of these mini perforators. It makes your folds much cleaner and prevents wrinkling. I also use a ruler to make sure the lines are straight when I'm perforating.

Eh, it's really on a case-by-case basis. Some, people will bid to high heavens, others won't get a lot of attention and the prices will stay low.

In the case of this one the Joy Division tape alone goes for $45.00 on Amazon and the Sonic Youth tape goes for ~$20.00. Others ones on that listing are $5.00 - $10.00, some aren't even available on Amazon.

i would get a 1/8" male to rca male adapter like you would use to plug your phone into a stereo system. like this http://www.amazon.com/Hosa-Cable-CMR206-Stereo-Adapter/dp/B000068O33

is it rotating? thinking you might have let it go to a place beyond the notch of 10 when you put the cover back on.

I got a thing I use, anyway, I'll edit with a link of an inline volume control, extremely hard to find when just clicking around amazon.

And congrats on the repair!

Yea, that would be a dictation recorder. No recollection as to the specific model, but something like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00006592V/ref=s9_acsd_zwish_hd_bw_biuO_c_x_3_w?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-8&pf_rd_r=4FTAB3D93VM3BKFRPH7K&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=f35b5d45-0019-5b0e-8d97-438d77216c24&pf_rd_i=172632

It doesn't use standard audio cassettes but 'microcassettes' which, as you can probably guess, are smaller.

Techmoan did a video on different smaller cassette formats: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5FqjQlFBDM

If you open the door you can use an extended swab to wipe the heads and rollers. Or you can use a head cleaning tape if you have one.

did a reverse google image search with your picture and it is Duke Ellington.
The same picture was used for this DVD:

I don't think any of those had that because..."internal microphones" were and are shit. And those Sony's were serious machines, not toys. I have a WM-D6C that came with a cool vintage small stereo Mic:

> Besides a 1/4" that will plug into the instrument or mic that I'm using, what other chords and gear do I need? I think I need audio output chords, right? Should they be 1/4" output chords, or 3.5mm cables, or a combination of both.

What all instruments are you going to record? it depends on what you're recording.

> Do I need a specific type of speakers to be able to listen to what I am recording while I am recording it? If I want to record electric guitar, do I just need an extra 1/4" to plug into my amp from the recorder?

You don't want to use speakers to listen as you're recording because you'd be battling bad feedback loops. For this I'd recommend a sub $100 set of reference headphones and a 1/4in adapter since the plug will probably be a 3.5mm. These are very widely used. I swear I haven't seen a sound booth or studio that didn't have a set of these hanging around somewhere. And you're right about the guitar plug in part.

My recording setup revolves around a Yamaha 4 track cassette recorder similar to yours, I'd be happy to answer any questions. Before you do anything more you should download a manual for it though. I went from knowing nothing to up and running, ping ponging with it etc. after reading mine.
