Cassette Unit Service Kit for the Sinclair Spectrum +2A & +2B Computer 

This service kit is for the black Spectrum +2A or +2B model which has just one cassette unit drive belt.
If you have a Spectrum +2 grey model which has two drive belts, you need the other +2 service kit in our SellMyRetro  shop.
A common problem with a newly acquired Spectrum +2A or +2B computer these days is poor loading performance from the built-in cassette deck.
This is often due to stretching and wear of the tape mechanism drive belt, or a dirty read/write head. 

The old drive belt stretches over time and now slips causing loading problems.  Also, when stood unused for many years, the belt develops a "kink" where the belt has rested unmoving over the drive motor capstan. This kink becomes a permanent feature in the belt causing it to jump when the drive is used again. 

This is a comprehensive service kit for the Spectrum +2A / 2B complete with new belt, head cleaning solution, special shaped tip cleaning swab for the read/write heads, cleaning buds for the tape drive mechanism  and an A5, illustrated instruction manual. The manual also covers some of the other more common issues affecting the performance of the cassette unit and how to correct them.

All you need (except basic tools) to service the cassette deck of your +2A / 2B and restore it's original performance. - the manual is easy to read and understand with clear step by step photographs.

If you can't find the spares you need in the eBay shop, check our website where many more items are available, along with games & software for many vintage computers.

We are happy to combine multiple purchases to save on shipping costs - just buy your items, then request an invoice.
If you pay for your items individually on separate orders, we will send you a PayPal refund, but the savings will not be as much.
