    Hello,

    I have a SONY cassette player that seems to be broken but I would like to see if I can repair it myself without having to send it anywhere,

    After putting a tape in, it seems to play for two seconds before it rewinds back and stops, it seems that maybe the sensor that tells the device that there is a tape inside is broken. Is there any way to fix it?

    Thanks in advance.

    I believe that Sony had made many different models of cassette players over the years. It might help if you told us the full model number of your particular Sony player.

    Have you tried this with more than one cassette?

    Sorry for the late reply, I took a look at it and it's not a SONY, it's a SANYO metal tape stereo M-G44
