I have removed all te rubbercoating by using a degrease liquid the they use normaly in the kitchen to clean the oven : It's perfect now .. a clean plastic surface ... just like new !!!
Be careful with other agresive cleaning products , otherwise you demage the plastic surface below the rubber coating .
Try it out it works perfect .
I hope your problem is solved now .
Excuse me for my incorect englisch ... i'm living in Belgium and my motherlanguage is dutch .
I fixed it perfect by buying some Motsenbocker's Lift Off Silicone Latex Caulk and Foam Sealent Remover from Home Depot and applying the gel with rubber gloves (also from Home Depot). Took off the sides of the boombox and knobs. Took about 30 mins in a stainless steel sink.
Then bought some Black Flat spray paint at Walmart and sprayed.
It looks perfect when all put back together.
Plastic scrubbing brush to throw away after $1.00
I used 99% pure Isopropyl alcohol that I got at a local drugstore. It took lots of paper towels and Q-tips to clean off the rubber coating. It probably took about 30 minutes per end, as there are a few hard areas to reach. Once the rubber coating is removed it leaves you the greyish black plastic surface underneath. Now it is no longer sticky and does not get covered with dirt and dust. Also you no longer get a black residue on your hands when touching it. I am very happy with the results.
I also had this same problem. As recommended above, silicon caulk remover works marvelously to take off the sticky coating.
To be fair, cleaning does not take 3 hours of your own time. After a few minutes to apply the cleaner, you just let them sit around for 3 hours. (I even found that letting them sit overnight helped clean the large end handles thoroughly.)

I suggest you begin by ensuring the turntable and tonearm are as near perfect as you can. The reproduction of sound from vinyl depends first and foremost on the operation of the mechanical components.
The correct stylus fitted correctly with the weight of the tonearm adjusted to the recommended value for the cartridge. There should be no friction vertically or laterally in the arm travel, though some high quality types are fitted with hydraulic dampers.
It is also essential the turntable runs smoothly at a consistent speed. Vinyl purists have all sorts of ways of checking the turntable speed is correct. Most turntables have rubber belts or wheels in the drive from the motor and a defect can ruin the quality of the reproduction.
Owning a turntable for vinyl reproduction is a suitable hobby for a keen amateur mechanic...
Once you are satisfied the mechanical components are in good order and functioning correctly there is only the electronics to consider.
There are two approaches. One involves putting a known good signal into the input of your record player amplifier and the other involves using the output from your turntable into a known good amplifier and speaker system.
These steps involve opening up the case of your record player and making and unmaking various connections.
Where the bluetooth options on your phone will depend on your phone.
So to put the speaker into Bluetooth pairing more slide the power switch to the right hand side. If the speaker has power then a blue light to the right should light up.
Once this is done you will need to find the Bluetooth devices option on your phone. This will be located somewhere under settings - connectivity.
When you locate the device in bluetooth devices, select it then select pair.
If you can't find the bluetooth options on your phone, comment on this answer with the phone name and model and I will see if I can find out for you.
Cassette tape machines will occasional require maintenance after a certain period of usage. First open the cassette door and remove the tape and any broken tape remaining inside. Some models allow you to remove the cassette door allowing you to have better access to clean the unit. Next you will need to clean the capstan with alcohol and a Q-tip. The capstan is the metal post which the rubber wheel (pinch roller) pushes against to drive the tape across the tape head. Basically clean all the shiny metal parts including the tape head. Some of the tape residue may be difficult to clean, I use Tricloroetilene which has been regulated by the government, but you may try a product called Goof Off to clean the difficult parts, but it could eat the plastic and rubber parts so be careful. Next use a rubber cleaner on the pinch roller so you do not dry the rubber out, or it will become useless. The other problem is the cassette may be driven by a motor and belts. The belts may need to be replaced and the pulleys cleaned. For this you will need to disassemble the unit to access the belts but the cleaning of the pinch roller and capstan may fix your problem, if not you need to open it up to replace the main belt.
at medium volume push the speaker cone with your hand ( be gentile and push it several times) if the speaker make sound again then the problem is the spaeker and must be replaced , if its possible switch the speakers from one channel to the other channel to see if the problem is the speaker or the output channel
A friend of mine has one of these, and the same thing happened. Toss in a CD, and the unit reads it, but doesn't play it. Looking at the CD components, all appears to be well, and I was even able to trick the unit into turning on using a paper clip to hold down the "lid closed" switch.
What I found the issue to be was with the lack of downward or clamping pressure the CD was getting with the lid closed. If you notice, with the lid open, there is a round part that "floats" and serves two purposes...one is to align the CD and keep it steady, and the other is to grip it, as the CD's do not snap into the lower centering piece, but rather just sit on it.
I solved the problem by placing a rubber o-ring on it, The one I used is about 1/16" (1mm +/-) and about 1 inch (25mm) diameter. I used some rubber cement to attach it to the top piece. I'm not sure how long this will hold, but it's worth a shot. I figure keeping a CD in the tray will help keep the ring in place as well.
This sounds like a dirty or sticky pinch roller - use a commercial cassette head cleaner - or ear but with a alcohol cleaner -
If the capston is not rolling the cassette forward this my be due to a broken belt - or may have just jumped off - power down the product and disconnet from the mains - then open it up - normaly the front come away undo the mounting screws from around the cassette mechanism normaly around 4 and carefuly look at the back there should normaly be 2 rubber band one to the capston and 1 to the pich roller the belt that may be broken is the smaller of the too. most cassette deck use the same size belt
