Re: CASSETTE DECK

On turning on the power switch, there is clicking sound four to five times and both the casser decks are raised and go into pause mode. Both the casset windows also get jammed. Suggest solution to overcome this problem.

BMWRIDER Good call fellah. Just one catch, both tape and cd covers have their own lid control motor with driving cicuits. NOT connected to flywheel. Both my belts are snapped and am looking for replacements. Happy holidays. Pete2010

Re: CASSETTE DECK

This model really uses a direct drive cam from the main motor to cycle the head assy. Most of the time when the heads wont move the motor , the motor drive circuit,or the cam itself is broken. If the cam is broken its a real bugger to take apart and repair as I used to do Aiwa for the factory returns in NJ when i had my shop In Long Island, NY. Man what a job that was tearing down all those really sophisticated cassette mechanisms.. good luck on your repair

Re: CASSETTE DECK

Sounds like another case of a slipping belt. A belt usually runs off the flywheel and actually lifts the head assembly into the play or record mode. Due to the pressure involved it's either that belt or the main drive belt which is slipping or completely snapped. BMW

SOURCE: The tape cover raising mechanism is broken.

Tritronics Inc. is my parts supplier of choice. They usually have or can get any parts I need and their prices are reasonable. www.tritronicsinc.com. They are agents for just about every manufacturer and will research parts based on model no., location of part and/or part description. It sounds like you will need a new door if it is broken. I've tried glueing these lids before with limited success. Tritronics would have the service manual also which would help with disassembly. Good luck.

Only one spindle turns on cassette player


It is probably a loose or broken belt. I do not know the unit so this is just a starting point.

I have a NSX-V70 stereo. Tapes and CD do not work, FM/AM is fine


Your unit needs a little TLC. Let me address the likely problems/solutions:

1) Tape deck stuck - The most common problem here is that the belt has gotten slippery. This has prevented the mechanism from resetting to a known position and that is what prevents the door from opening. Hopefully when you pried it open, nothing bot broken.

2) Both tape drives run from the same motor and use different belts. The same applies to the second deck as the first. The belts are sliping and need to be replaced.

3) The CD lens is probably dirty and needs to be cleaned. The fact that the CD stops and an attempt is made to play it suggests that the optics are working enough to detect the disc. Clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol and that should resoplve the CD problem.

If you have not opened up these before, I would not suggest you start without someone around who has. There are 3 belts that need to be chagned for the cassette section to work. Plan on $15-$20 for the belts.

Aiwa cassette deck won't eject


I had this problem on an AD-S40. Turned out to be the drive belts, which had stretched, resulting in the fact that the motors couldn't drive the mechanism through it's various load cycles of opening/closing the captain roller, etc. as required to operate the mechanism. Stuck in mid-cycle, the doors would not open.

After removing the case cover, you can turn the belt driven wheels by hand to complete the cycle, so that you can eject. Then get new belts (several outfits sell belts based on length, on line). You don't need to do much to replace the belts -- after unlocking and getting the tape out, it was only a couple of screws to remove the mechanism, as a unit, and there is no need to fuse with the circuit boards and such. Easier than I expected.

Cassette player works fine, then screeches after 20-30 minutes.


Yeppers very common problem .. If the noise dosent come from the speakers then the problem is in the motor in the cassette deck. if the problem comes from the speakers when the deck is playing a tape, then the problem is in the record/playback switch. you may beable to fix it by spraying just a lttle bit of tuner cleaner inside the switch. It shouldnt cost much to have a repair shop do this as if you spray too much your going to ruin the belts and the mechanism. Good Luck

Cassette door stuck closed


Firstly: do not think about forcing the cassette door! Look inside the unit. You need to hand rotate the capstan flywheel a bit,( a large-ish metal disc attached to the motor via a rubber drive belt.)That should release the powered deck mechanism and allow ejection. Then buy a new drive belt , so that problem does not recurr. Good Luck
