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.

I guess your device is too old. Maybe you still can get the belt to drive "play" but doubt. Get yourself a n mp3 player with bluethoth a speaher: cheaper and better.

Denon tape deck ddr m30 will not play cassette, but fast forwards and rewinds fine, it just wont play!


There may be a separate motor for the play function and either it or a drive belt has failed.

How do I get fast forward & rewinds to work on my Teac W450-R dual cassette deck..?


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.

Play button and fast forward will not stay down,click down momentarily but then click off again--- fast rewind works perfectly


No Idea- you need to state a model and brand to get an answer. Could be broken keys if it is a piano type button cassette deck.

When play button is pressed it switches itself off after a couple of seconds on Sony cassette deck


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.

I have a multitrack cassette recorder MCR-4 made by AMR. In fast foward or rewind it only runs for a few secounds and stops. It does this each time you press the direction button. The tape does stay...


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..

Best of luck

Sounds like the tape tension sensor is stuck. The sensor is always telling the mechanism that the tape has reached the end.
