Tape deck not working

The door was not opening to get tape out and then finally did on one side. Tape will not play just a grunting noise. I can see inside tape opening. Mechanism is sliding back and forth. I cannot play tapes. Any suggestions. I have never used this tape componet. CD is fine. Is it worth fixing?

Re: tape deck not working

I had the same problem and fixed it. It's simple: Open the case by removing the 6 screw on the outline back of the system and the 2 black ones on each sides. For me, it was the right tape who were problematic, so I started the player to see what gear was turning badly. The problem is: that gear don't have enough power to complete his action, so give it an additional (but not to much) power with your hand to complete his action and the system must succeed the action and stop running.

Re: tape deck not working

Possibly a slipping rubber belt in the tape unit drive is not gripping enough to complete an action and so is just stopping everything from happening until it completes that action. You might try GENTLY helping the belt complete its action.

Sony mhc-2600 tape stuck

The tape has spewed out in the mechanical section preventing the door from opening, some outer doors can be removed by too thumb screws sliding up and out, others are held in by plastic clips, the door may have to be pried open to get the outer door off to remove the tape.

Tape deck won't open or play.

If you have a cassette in the machine sometimes it will spew tape through out the mechanical sector and lock the door shut and won't play, the tricky part is to get the door to open, unless you can remove the outer shell "push up" might pop off, or set screws remove outer piece will come off. If not sure take it to a service shop.

I have a NSX-V70 stereo. Tapes and CD do not work, FM/AM is fine

Your unit needs a little TLC. Let me address the likely problems/solutions:

1) Tape deck stuck - The most common problem here is that the belt has gotten slippery. This has prevented the mechanism from resetting to a known position and that is what prevents the door from opening. Hopefully when you pried it open, nothing bot broken.

2) Both tape drives run from the same motor and use different belts. The same applies to the second deck as the first. The belts are sliping and need to be replaced.

3) The CD lens is probably dirty and needs to be cleaned. The fact that the CD stops and an attempt is made to play it suggests that the optics are working enough to detect the disc. Clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol and that should resoplve the CD problem.

If you have not opened up these before, I would not suggest you start without someone around who has. There are 3 belts that need to be chagned for the cassette section to work. Plan on $15-$20 for the belts.

Clicking sound in tape deck

All Aiwas  are prone to this problem.  The doors are a real pain and easily give up the ghost.  I have 2, both probmatic in this direction.
I have spoken to others about this problem. Seems no easy fix.
Have you in your case, tried leaving and old tape in the tape part of your  unit . The noise you hear, usually starts when tape unit area doors are about to pack a wobbly. Unless under warrenty, proberly,
not worth getting fixed.    It seems something gets weak in the activation part and get a mind of its own.  Very common after about 3 yrs of ownership.  All the best: jamz

Casset cover door will not open when pressed

You probably have one of two problems. Either the tape has been eaten by wrapping it around the capstan or else the head has not retracted to let the door open. If the tape will still play, then it is not the first problem. If the tape will not play, then it could be either problem. If it is the latter problem (head not retracted) then you may have a bad belt (broken or slipping). The tape wrapped around the capstan problem may be caused by a belt or tire being bad but a different belt or tire than the head not retracting problem. This may seem confusing to you but that is just the nature of the thing. In short, I'd bet you have a bad belt or tire that needs replacing. I hope this helps. Good luck.
