To remove the red back cover you need to remove six screws placed around the border of the cover. Note! The bottom 2 screws are longer than the other 4. These 2 are 35mm long whilst the other 4 are only 30mm long. Don't mix them up ! And voilà! Now we have a nice view of all the internal components

Take out three screws to remove the main circuit board Then unplug four sockets attached to the circuit board And here we have the only circuit board in this device, don't see any big processors on it, I guess I can't turn it into a super computer :(

Remove four screws to loosen the tape drive chassis Then pull up and back to take the chassis out With the tape drive chassis on its own we can look at Sony's weird button system, we also have the blue chassis with no components on it

To take the microphone apart just pull very hard on the red handle and it will come out, its held on by two tabs Take off the yellow cover by wedging a flathead screwdriver in the crack and prying it off Now we can look at a little microphone, and surprisingly it even has its own windscreen

Do you know where I can find belts for this device? I need both belts new.

Try to look if you can replace it with kind of mixed belt pack : https://www.ebay.fr/itm/Universel-50-Mix...
