Default FOC 2 Sony DAT machines DTC-750 & PCM-2300 for spares

Hi,

I have 2 SONY DAT machines that I am sure can be used for parts by a competent tech who fixes these things. Both are offered for spares and anyone is welcome to pick them up from Orpington in Kent.

I can also post them at just the cost of the courier.
Itís a shame to dump them when many parts in both can still be used to fix others.

Please let me know if interested and I will save them for you.

Cheers

Hi Jascha

I have a DTC690 which needs spares to get going so I can play back recordings from my band days. I found the deck to have mechanical issues where the tape used to chew up. The previous owner to me had taken the deck apart which was unknown to me on purchase.
Either one of your decks may be good for repair or spares for mine.
They will need posting.
Mark.

Hi Mark,

I hope I can help you in this case. Let me find out what it will cost me to send them to you and will come back to you. I will need a postcode however so I can get a quote. Best would be to send you both machines and then you can pick and choose. I am no expert on DAT machines and hope something from these decks might solve the problem you have. I think one of the heads is still ok but not sure about the other.
If you want to send a PM instead you’re most welcome.

Thanks
Carmine

As I have 2 takers I hope it’s ok for both of you guys to send one each?
I try to find 2 boxes and pack them up tomorrow and get a quote. It should not cost much with a courier.

I will contact you both via PM if that’s ok?

Cheers to both

Carmine

Thank you Carmine,

If ok could you send me the DTC 750 as its more likely to be nearer the same machine as my DTC 690 for the spares.

Martin, I hope this is ok with you.
Thank you
Mark.

Hi Mark,

I was thinking the same even though the transport of both are exactly identical. I await to hear from Martin if he is still interested in a non working machine (since i am offering them for parts) as otherwise I will send you both machines.

Thanks

Hi guys,

Thatís perfect. I shall therefore pack them both and let you know about the courier charge. Iím hoping to have a box available. Just a question... I have a cassette door just for the 750. If Mark is not after fixing the 750 shall I send the door to Martin even though itís not the same colour?

Cheers
Carmine

Hi again,

I shall wait to hear from Mark before I pack them but also worth mentioning that the 2300 is missing the headphones volume knob which I can transfer from the 750. From what I understand Mark is after parts from the transport only?

Cheers

For sure btw I can tell that both machines have working power supplies and boards. The transports need attention. I am sure these will be useful to both of you and hopefully get one of them running and the other useful to fix the 690.

Morning gents,

I would like to keep the door on the 750 as I would like to get this machine going and the door is different on the 690 so I can’t transfer this across. Im just hoping the transport is like for like. Hope ok.
Mark.

Hi Mark,

I happened to pack the items already and as I assumed you just wanted to take parts from it rather than restoring it I packed the door with the 2300. I hope thatís ok and apologies for the confusion. I found an opportunity to pack them this morning as I had some time off.

Apologies again for this.

Cheers
Carmine

That's great Mark. You're a gent! When it's convenient to let me know that you can send me the P&P costs ( I sent details via PM) I will send ASAP. I am sure you both can get them going again. Apart from transport related issues (in that area) they are good to go.

Cheers and have a great weekend,

Cheers
