    Repairguy - thanks for the quick reply.

    I queried the part numbers you provided on (not sure if this is a recommended site for purchasing components) and they listed three belts for model # PMC-DR50

    - Belt (BR) 304583101
    - Belt (FR) 304583201
    - Belt 393302001

    I could find one of your part numbers on there site's part list.
    My intent is to replace both belts (if I don't goof it up). Which belts should I order?

    Please advise

I have a cassette player CT-5 circa mid 80s and I need new drive belts. Can they be found?

Just measure the diameter of the belts in mm. Then type "Cassette drive belt ??mm" into Google. Belts are not specific to any maker. PS you don't need to be spot on with the mm measurement.
Make a note of how they fit before removing them.

We have a phonograpph with AM/FM radio, cassette and CD player, Model KA-1916. We have owned it about 18 months. The cassette deck does not work now. It played fine but now when you put in a cassette...

The most likely problem is with the belt that goes around the flywheels of the deck. You would need to take the cassette deck out of the unit and check it out to be sure. If the belt has come off or is broken, it needs to be replaced with the same type of belt and then it needs to be put back on in the exact way it is meant to be put on. This is something that may not be very easy for you to do unless you have some experience with this sort of repair. Taking apart a cassette deck can cause more problems with it, if it is not put back together perfectly.

The best solution for you would probably be to take it in to a repair center. If you decide to try it yourself, I am willing to offer help, but I do advise against it if you have no experience with them.

Let me know if you want more help,
