SONY MHC EX660 HI FI SYSTEM

We have a lovely Sony hi fi system. Everything works except the tape deck.
Couldn't afford to buy new equipment so got this 2nd hand from a charity shop.
The sound from the speakers is magnificent.
It goes fast forward and fast back, but when we put it on play it goes at fast forward speed with garbled sounds.
As a pair of 'old fogies' we have loads of tapes we would like to play.
We are quite capable of following instructions if you can advise any way of correcting this fault.

Thank you in anticipation of any advice you can offer.

As simple as cassette tapes are, their mechanisms can be quite complicated. This problem could be caused by more than one thing. The motor could have lost it's speed control circuit, there could be a worn/stretched belt which is slipping and not engaging the pinch roller completely, if it's a mechanical (not solenoid or motorized) mechanism there could be dried out lubricant preventing the mechanism from operating properly thus not allowing the pinch roller to engage fully with the capstan.

In looking up that model online I see that it's a motorized mechanism which can be quite complicated to work on. I'm not trying to discourage you but the information needed to repair such a unit is not easily imparted through writing. The one thing you could do is open it up and look for broken or slipping belts. Often times they simply become loose (as the rubber ages) and fall off. Other than that you may have to seek out a repair shop for an estimate.

How to incrise the bass of sony MHC-RV777d


Is it possible that the speakers are out of phase, where one speaker is moving out, the other is moving in, resulting in zero bass?

Other than checking wires, making sure + on amp is linked to + on speaker, try changing the eq settings, or sit them next to a wall - walls help bass a lot.
