The stop button is missing, music has a warble sound, help?

I have a WM-4 Walkman, it doesn’t have the stop button, it needed a new belt, which I was able to replace with another portable player that I had laying around, it turns on and everything works, but when I play a tape the music sounds distorted and warbles, what can be done? and where can I get a new stop button? can it be 3d print?

ANSWERS:

"Hi,

Perhaps the replacement belt was of the wrong diameter or thickness.

Here’s a link that describes the specifications for the 2 drive belts used in a Sony Walkman WM-4

Here’s a link to just one supplier of the belts. It is only shown to give you an idea of the cost of the replacement belts. There are other suppliers online that may suit you better.

As for the Stop button, check on places like Ebay etc for a faulty Walkman WM-4 that you can salvage the button from. You may be lucky that someone is trying to sell a faulty unit at a price that suits you"

Shoott i don’t know thats tuff. I would have to just create something to at least hit the latch in order to stop the music. But the warble sound is most likely the speed of the player. You need to ajust the speed. By the battery comparment you’ll see a brown motherboard and next to the battery component. There is a sliver weird thing standing up. U turn that to ajust the speed . I hopeeeee that helps it' was tuff explaining.
