Hoping that someone will recognise this nice almost pocketable recorder. Measures roughly, it is 13 X 9 x 4 cms. It is now showing its age presumably with belt/s now old and slackening.
Does anyone know of service manual downloads apart from the US of A? Or even taken one of this model apart?
It is nudging 40 years old yet is very miniaturised and well built. I've had one scary attempt at dismantling and realised in time that A- I wasn't getting anywhere, and B- I had a dozen tiny screws of differing lengths! If I try this again I will photograph every stage and label the print/s. Scouring the Net I' fairly sure I can buy suitable belt/s but need to get at the innards to measure.

This is a great post. I don't like to simply throw things away either w/o having a go at repairing first. Sadly thought most new gadgets are not repairable.
