Tape deck in Volvo 240, '86, not working

The tape deck in my 1986 Volvo 240 isn't working--well, it reels the tape, but there's no feedback from the speakers. The speakers work fine otherwise (with the radio). Very frustrating.

Try running a cleaner tape through it several times. Open the door and make sure you kid didn't slip something in there too.

If it is a stock tape deck that is part of the radio it has a computer chip that sometimes controls the ignition for the vihcale.

Remove tape from car tape deck


tape, you have working tapes in 2013, wow?
i'd send em to the Smithsonian inst. LOL sorry!
done vast numbers. (wish not)
can be 2 things.
eject failure
or munch failure.
both require, lid off deck.

the capstan drive can eat any tape, for sure old taps and 2x that
dirty
if the tape is not wound around the capstan, then its not munched.
and is a simple eject failure,
gota love tapes... '

a better solution is a new head.
with USB port.
rip the tapes to MP3 (on any PC for free)
then copy them to USB stick (files)
end life of bad tape H3LL.

Radio won't eject tape


tape is probably caught in the reels, you might have to force it out of the deck, i forced mine out with my eyebrow tweezers, the tape was obviously ruined cause it ripped, but better the tape than the deck...

I put a tape in and it keeps flipping sides without playing and pops out and says Error. It even does it with a CD-Cassette Adapter. Before the Cln came up and I pressed on the eject button and that...


Cassette decks have sensors on the reels which tells the deck when the tape is at the end. When the reel stops the deck switches the direction of the tape and sometimes the position of the head(depending on the deck design). Most common problem is the tape is hard to turn, or the deck won't turn it ( deck thinks it's at the end, click, still won't turn, click, won't turn, click) you should fast forward and/or rewind your tapes from start to finish once in a while to keep them lined up(narrow spool/less friction), you shouldn't have to but it works. BUT,...your problem sounds like a slipping or broken belt/or dirt causing the problem. Take the deck out to have a look and clean the capstans(rubber rollers)belts,heads with alcohol and a Q-tip while your at it. Dirt's usually the main culprit and if you do have some other problem, cleaning it is always a win/win (It will also sound better clean)

1983 Cadillac Sedan deVille radio cassette player problem. The cassette player gets stuck in forward position and makes a clicking sound but no music. The tape does not turn. Belt seems to be fine. It will...


If the belt is fine then the pinch roller must work to pull the tape with the capstan working.
so please open set and get glimpse to see if the pinch roller is engaging. If not the loading mechanism is not working. you will need to see if the reel drive is also working. So unless the mechansim is checked there is no question of the sound coming out.
So see that the loading engages the pinch roller to pull tape and the reel drive to gather the winding, if not reset loadding mechanism .
However if the tape moves and there is no sound then the head preamp, the tone amp or the output amp can be faulty. You can use a signal test to confirm the section.
credit if this helps

Tape Deck does not recognize tape adapter. Does not eject.


Just an idea .. In the past I have removed hungry decks from my cars. A lot easier to work on / dismantle than in dash. gently remove the casing and you should find the tape deck a separate component within the whole unit.Hook up via alligater clips to battery to power up and alligater clips to a speaker lead to hear. saves a lot of stress. Usually done for chewwed up and swallowed tape. results are good, surprisingly.

Cheers !
