Sony RDR-VX521 gear needed

2933 Views 0 Replies 1 Participant Last post by  Starliner

I am trying to repair my factory-reconditioned Sony RDR-VX521 VCR-DVD Recorder. This unit has a spoked-hub white nylon broken gear which helps load the VHS tapes. I am estimating the gear is roughly 1.5 to 2 inches in diameter. I tried to get an individual gear from Sony, but it is not available as a separate part, and replacing the entire assembly is not cost-effective, costing about as much as the deck itself.

Do any of the HTS members have an idea where I can get individual Sony parts, or happen to have one of these units being scrapped or available at low cost? My Internet searches for this have not been successful.

Thank You.
