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.

a system remote is the only option for you here. The deck does not have its own remote receiver. Sorry to break the bad news to you.

Cassette decks that have been sitting for long periods have problems with drive belts and idlers becoming slack or decomposing of the rubber compound. If you wish to keep the unit, please have it cleaned and have belts/idlers replaced with new ones by a professional service. Also have controls and switches cleaned of built up tarnish and mildew to prevent noisey or drop-out audio

First of all you will need some mechanical mind to open out the set. The tape mechanism has to be removed and the connections should be noted and removed. If the old belt is already in the mechansim then you will not have any issue with the direction of the belt to go around the capstan flywheel. If you have alreaddy obtained the correct belt then carefully open the back of the mechanism to remove and reset the new belt. When replacing check for the free running of the capstan if not use a small drop of oil to free. If the belt was not there then wind from the motor to the second flywheel after running it around the first flywheel to drag it along so that when the motor turns you have the flywheels turning freely. reset the back plate using a thin probe type tool to hold the belt and release to the motor. For a first time it may be a bit difficult but try again. Hope you get this right. Good day
