The flywheel belt would have broken or gone slack and fallen off the motor pulley. You can confirm this by opening the top and looking inside. If you can shake the machine holding it upside down the belt might even fall off.Replacing the belt is a tricky job. Its like putting back a bicycle chain except there is a metal plate behind the flywheel and your hand won't go there.

SOURCE: yamaha cassette deck k-300

There is no instruction on how to put belts in a deck other than a parts break down of kind of where they go. A seasoned Technician would not need this but a Service Manual is always the best place to start.
The Belt kit can be ordered from Marrs Communication and that will take the responsibility of sizing and then ordering the correct belts. The goo can be removed with denatued alcohol or Ammonia. I have always used alcohol and it is not a pleasant job for anyone.

Just connect the line outputs from the tape deck to the line input of the computer using a dual RCA to mini stereo adapter if necessary. Your processing software will correct any deficiencies and produce satisfactory results. Be sure to copy the original tape information before dumping the old tape; otherwise you will have a "mystery" CD

The tape runs a bit fast on play mode. Is there an adjustment for this or is it a board or motor problem.


Sometimes the motor has a control pot on the top. You might find it under a label, it will be only a small circular hole.
Otherwise trace the wires from the motor back to the PC board, you should see a Pot for the speed there.

Please bear in mind that if it is a second hand machine somebody could have replaced the motor with the wrong type.

Can I use this machine (telex copyette 123)to cancel old cassettes by copying a blank cassette onto three cassettes??


You should be able to do that with it, but note that this is a mono copying machine rather than stereo, so it may not entirely write over the existing recording if it is in stereo and the heads are in a slightly different position, but that would be the same for a stereo recorder too.
I think it will work, but really for decent recordings, I wouldn't recommend 'recycling' tapes in this way, they deteriorate fairly quickly.

Unit may have worn belts that are slipping. All cassette player belts are subject to deterioration even if recently installed. You may try ordering the belts yourself and have a service tech install them. The tech that installed belts 9 months ago may have used used belts. Although dishonest, it is common.
