Hello All! I just bagged one of these guys yesterday for 10 of your Earth pounds It has an eject disc fault which is down to the drive belt. A common propblem from my 15 mins of research! It plays a disc fine (seller demo'd that) but requires the unit to be turned upside down and subjected to a few bouts of "percussive maintenance" before the disc will eject My intention is to fix is as part of a fun project and I might learn something along the way. Has anyone fixed one of these or a similar one? Any tips/tricks to be careful of when embarking on this mission? I've seen a seller on ebay selling the exact belt I need and they say it's compatible for the JE770 so I will probably go for that. Apparantly most Sony decks used the same drive unit so I could find another broken one with a different fault and swap them over. Thanks!
