Hello guys !
I recently managed to repair my newly bought DCC 170. It needed only a belt replacement. Bought a belt at FixYourAudio.com and the belt was exact specs as original=extra thin (whereas previously bought one for DCC 130 at MFBfreaks.com was thicker; nevetheless both belts work ok).
DCC tapes play and record fine but there is a bit too much W&F with analog tapes.
I suspect pinch rollers as they are old, not so soft and one has little dent made of prolonged contact with capstan shaft because of broken belt (seen this already on analog cassette deck).
Did any one replace pinch rollers (probably just the rubber part) on portable DCC players ?
Maybe The Museum could make a instructable about this
