If you can her the motor turning, there is a good chance that the belt(s) have broken and need to be replaced. If you hear nothing, then there could be a control issue. I'm leaning toward the belts though. Figure on $5-$15 for the belts,

Cassette deck stops immediately after pressing play


It is likely that the rubber drive belts have deteriorated and will have to be replaced to restore operation.

I have a old pioneer stereo double cassette deck reciever model # RX-Z15, i dont understand the bal/unbal fm antenna hook ups cant get reception , need to know where to hook up the antenna or what kin


Buy a 300ohm FM Y antenna wire screw the spade ends into the balance hookup and fasten the Y section on your wall, "higher the better" this will improve reception. The antenna can be purchased at Radio Shack or Tv repair shop.

I have a Technics Double Cassette Deck RS-TR212. On the rear it has Output and Input connections. Output goes off to the Amplifier. Can the Input be used to record or play from a record Turntable? I have...


your receiver has (or should have) input and output connections,, your turntable needs to be hooked to the receiver,, then with the output cables that feed your cassette player you need to go, in to out and out to in ( receiver output to the input of the tape player, and out of the tape player to the in on the receiver, while playing a record if you hit record on the tape player it will record the record, depending on the receiver it will show you the meter readings for either the in or out,, they vary

I have a pioneer CT-F900 cassette deck, when I press play the reel side that should take up the slack stops and the tape bunches up and the drive mech disengages. The tape stops. Your help, please Steve


The take-up reel is dragging or the belt is stretched or broken. No surprise on a deck this old. Try Fast Forward. Try Rewind. Same result?

If it still doesn't work, and it happens with only one cassette, rap the cassette's flat side against a solid flat surface to loosen it. Try again.

If you're really an old-school deck user you probably know how to cheat the transport with no tape resent to make the capstans engage for cleaning. Try that. The two reels should spin opposite as if maintaining tension. If the right one is stationary or lethargic (try to feel how strong it pulls compared to the left one), there's a loose or broken belt.

Next step. Get out the can opener, go inside and see what's wrong. Good luck.

AKAI CASSETTE DECK IDLER?


I wonder if it has a counter and if so, is the belt that drives the counter too loose? Is the counter working?
