Question about Aiwa NSX-AJ20 CD Shelf System
Problem with tape deck. When the unit is turned on, tape deck 2 makes a clicking noise (for about 5 seconds) like it is attempting to 'play' a tape (no tape is there). The whole roller mechanism engages and the door becomes stuck. When I wedge the door open, I can manually move the roller mechanism back down (allows the door to close). Unfortunately, the next time the unit is turned on, the same thing occurs. I don't even really want the tape deck functionality back (although that would be nice). I would just like the clicking sound to stop so I can play the radio and CDs. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!
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

Without physically looking at the cassette deck myself, I cannot be 100% sure the tape is wrapped around the pinch roller and capstan. The capstan is the chrome rod which the rubber pinch roller pushes to regulate the speed of the tape moving across the head. However it is approximately a 90% chance the take up reel for the tape stopped working from a bad tape or a loose belt which drives the tape take up reel. The clicking sounds like it could be the auto reverse solenoid because it thinks the tape has reached the end of play. The fun part is to remove the tape which you may have to disassemble the front panel if you cannot gain access to the tape from the top or bottom. You will need to cut the tape and remove it from the capstan and pinch roller to open the cassette door. Sometimes you can remove the capstan to free the tape. Once you have cleaned all the tape out of the unit make sure the belt for the take-up is good. If it is glazed, cracked, loose or broken order a belt. Clean all the pulleys and capstan and replace the belt. Your unit should be functional after the above procedure.
