Hi Folks,

I know this is not actually a vintage tube unit, but I have a Mitsubishi X10 stereo system (1970's) that needs the belts changed on the cassette deck.
Just wondering if anyone has a service manual that would show ho to get it apart?

Cheers in advance.

Is there another model number on that unit such as MC-5000 or MC-8000?

There's a video on YouTube by a guy who repaired a model MC-8000 and he says that getting to the cassette transport to replace the belts was quite a lot of work. He says it seems like they built the rest of the unit around the cassette mech.

If no service manual appears, perhaps if you contact him he can give you some tips.

Thanks for the above link - I just had a good look at the unit and X-10 is the only model on it. I had a look at the you tube link and it looks the same as the MC8000 both internally and externally - I'm guessing that over here it was called X-10 instead.

Other than yourself, no one else has responded. As the guys in the video clip says, its actually a very good unit just a nightmare to get apart from what I can tell.

"Hi-Fi Manuals" has a partial manual for the MC 8000 which appears to be the same model.
It has seven pages of schematics, and dial stringing information.
