    Is the tension on the tape keeping enough pressure on the tension arms to allow the switches inside to "feel" the tape? Check the way you have the tape fed into the machine.

HI, I purchased new belts for my tapedeck (2 actually: a flat and a square one) but I don't know how to install them. The square belt is visible but I cannot find the flat one. Can you help me?


The flat belts are usually the one from the motor to the flywheel or "capstan." Most people don't realize this, but the capstan and pressure (pinch) roller is what actually drives the tape in the play mode. The reels are used to maintain tape pressure and perform rewind / fast-forward.

Disconnect speakers and see if itdoes the same thing if so then it has a shorted out put and will have to go to the shop.

Sansui 8900 zdb to connect to pioneer rg2 dynamic processer then to bose 901 active equallizer. what is the proper method to connect these?


Referring to the picture and remembering that ONLY 901's can run off of any particular amplifier.

http://vintageelectronics.betamaxcollectors.com/sansuistereoreceivermodel8900zdb.html

I can't make out the label for tape copying. You want the 901 EQ to be the "TO" when 'copy' is selected. That way it's EQ will not affect your taping to the upstream deck or processor. Or in your case, you want the RG-1 to proceess the audio first, not after the 901 EQ changes it.

http://www.classicaudio.com/forsale/pio/RG1.html

In to Outs. Both the RG-1 and the 901 Active EQ have facilities for attaching other processors or tape deck(s) within their tape loops. In a pinch you could daisy-chain the RG-1 in front of the Bose 901 EQ on a single tape loop to free up the other one.

Go to Bose.com for the manual and specific pictures of the hook-up.

It sounds like your belt is the problem, as that's the most normal reason. If the turntable is reasonably old the belt may have lost elasticity and not driving the platter properly.Check the wear on the belt and replace if it is suitably worn.

Aiwa AD-1250 When a cassette tape is inserted the spools do not turn; there is a whirring noise when ''forward'' button is pressed. Is it possible for me to repair this fault by opening up the machine ?


You need to replace the belts from the motor. From memory I think there are two. You will probably find that all the rubber parts need to be replaced, including the pinch roller.

I have a pioneer RT-909 reel to reel unit. When the playbutton is pressed,the motor starts the tape then it continually stops. I'm assuming that the motor or belt(?) is bad?

I have a Toyota Scion with a Pioneer T1805 that is giving me a Error 4 Message perodically which does not allow me to use the CD player. Help Please!


The most common problem of error messages is the lense and the roller.The roller is that moving back and port bringing the lense set,had already many dirt,that stock up of moving the roller.You better take out the unit from your car and open it .You clean the roller by using a lighter fluid or desame kind of that fluid and clean the lense with a cotton buds ,soak the cotton buds with a little plain water and after that , use a dry cotton buds to dry it out and in the roller take the old grease in the roller and replace it with a new grease .Use a type-A class grease.If you finish this all,i assume you that performance will be better.

Hi saabangerman

The unit sounds like it has a take up clutch or takeup idler problem. Check all the drive assemblies in the unit. Remove the cover from the front of the transport inside the cassette well, and check the condition of the idlers and reel base drives. The counter belt can also gatherup and prevent the takeup reel from working correctly, or fire the auto stop mechanism preventing it from playing, although that sounds to be ok in this case as the unit will FF and REW ok. The takeup drive is supplied by a different drive idler as it requires much lower and more controlled torque. This unit was always considered to be a great tape deck and is well worth a bit of attention for restoration. You can get a new belt kit for $19.00 from here

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.
