Question about Audio Players & Recorders
My RS-TR272 tape deck plays the cassette but no sound. I have not even used it much, may be 3-4 times in last five years. I tried demagnetizing it but still no effect. It is brand new unit, only thing I did last time was that plugged in the RCA cables in opposite ways one time (Output in In and In into output one). I am not sure if that had any bad effect on it. Can someone please help on this as unit shows cassette playing. There is no volume switch on the unit itself as someone else recommended in the previous answer.

The belts will have failed. You will need to replace them for the deck to be reliable. If you are mechanically minded I can talk you through it... You giving me a FixYa rating will help my profile and loosen my lips on how to overhaul your deck. :)

Look for small leaver or any contact switches. They might have become bent out of shape or broken, or have dirt in them, cutting off the sound. Also check the leads coming from the head, they might have become detached or at least you can trace where they join the PC board. If you touch where they join you should get a buzz on either channel.

If you observe the sprockets in the cassette you'll probably see they're not turning. That would indicate a broken belt or something mechanically common to both decks. Deck logic probably interprets the lack of sprocket rotation as end of side and auto-reverses. Take it to a shop.
