Re: play button no response fast forward and rewind work
It is ridiculous to say the belt is not available and that the unit is too old. I fix decks all the time that are from the 70's. If you know the size of the belt look at the belt section of Consolidated Electronics or check Marrs Communications and the belt will be available.

Check the belts, inside the unit you should see a rubber belt which is what pulls the tape fast forward or rewind. Some belts with time get loose and slip, they can also break and fall off which will not let you fast forward or rewind.
Open your cassette player and look where the plastic pulleys are located and check for the belts, they might not be broken at all but very loose and slip on the plastic pulley.
When a deck is stored for some time, the belts perish, or the belt on the main capstan drive motor ends up with tight bend in it, where it has been on the pulley for a while. On start up, the belt will drop off the flywheel. Take off the lid and investigate. For fast forward & rewind the reel motor drives it, this motor also is used for take up on play. If the capstan(s) are not running, the take up will not work. Most machines have a sensor on the feed spool, if this does not rotate, it will switch off so as not to feed a load of tape with nowhere to go. Google your deck number for drive belts.
Hi the most common problem i have found here is that although the tapes look OK, they are very tight in case to go forward/back. Banging on the side of the cassette fairly hard on a flat surface a few times, both sides, quite often get rids of it. If that doesnt work, then will need a service on machine. Also try a new cassette..
