While recording on my portable cassette player, sound became wobbly.

/Sounded like I hit the "rewind" button....but it was still recording. Now the "rewind" sound is on the cassette tape I was recording.....I tried to clean the heads...but it still has the wobbly sound.

SOURCE: Cassette player not working

Cassette players usually have a little rubber band that connects the motor to the spindles. If everything else is fine, I would suggest seeing if it slipped off somehow (or got cracked and snapped)

SOURCE: cassette players jammed

actually you can not lubicate the cassette players. it has to do with a belt inside. your players may need to be demagnitized. i would go to radio shack or electronic store and try a cassette cleaner/demagnitizer and see if that solves the problem. i would even try different batteries or a ac power adapter if you have the plug. some batteries make units run slow. i would even get a can of dust cleaner that you find in the electronics section. you spray it in and it cleans the inside of the dust that may be inside.

We have two of these with the same problem. The belt that drives the pick up reels is broken. We are trying to find a place to purchase new ones.

SOURCE: cassette player doesnt play or record, ff or

Hi.
If you hear a faint whirring sound from the cassette player while performing these functions, the motor is fine, but you require a new drive belt/s that need to be fitted at an electronics shop. If you hear not sound at all, the motor has died (possibly belts too), again it will require and electrinics repair shop visit.
For the sake of repairing it, it maybe cheaper to buy a new one.

Cassette Deck Not Working


I know exactly what the problem is. I used to have one of these blasters and the tape drive belt has broken. I probably went through 8 belts. (it would usually happen when I pressed Record and Pause at the same time!!!) I would always take mine back to Radio Shack cause they would fix it for free (as an ongoing issue and I've seen lots of similar stories about the belts on this model), but do a little research and you should be able to get one (grab a couple ) and do it yourself. As for the blaster, it is awesome isn't it? KILLER sound. I had given mine to a friend when I bought a monster home stereo back in the day and have regretted that decision for years. Hope this helps!!

Insert a tape.

Select the program source you want to listen/record (CD).

Insert a cd, press stop.

Press record on the tape player.

Press play on the CD player.

The volume control or any audio emphasis buttons will not affect the record level.
