I need help with a Sony TC 500 A reel to reel

I need help with a Sony TC500A reel to reel tape recorder/player.  I have had it since 1964 and it bogs down and won't play my tapes anymore.  I need someone to work on it.

Hello Joe, 

Welcome to the Sony community forums.

 about the only thing we can suggest is cleaning the heads, however im sure that has already been attempted.

as for parts, we cannot guarantee having stock of legacy equipment from 1973

please contact our Consumer Electronics support line  for options, its possible we can help find a location that may still be able to service it.
