Question about Denon DRM-740 Single Dual Cassette Deck
I recently returned from Peace Corps service and unpacked my stored Denon DRM-740 and found that the motor wont drive the tape when it is in play mode. The motor takes up the slack in the tape and then stops. In fast forward or rewind there is no problem driving the tape. What is the likely cause of the problem? How much repair likely cost? And is this a repair I could do on my own with little electronics repare expierence? Thanks. Ecuador PC
Just bought a unit from a thrift store. Found same problem; FF & RW OK, but play engages then stops. Also noticed buzzing noise when power turned on. Opened unit, found broken capstan drive belt. FF & RW driven from different motor. Buzz was drive motor running freely with no load - when power is on, capstan is driven all the time for fast play/record start. Replaced with rubber band, and it works --- now looking for replacement belt.

I have the exact same problem with my DRM 740 as the post above.
FFW and RW are fine, but once play button is pushed, the head engages then quickly shuts down.
I've cleaned the deck twice and no change.
The deck had been A-OK since day one prior to this problem.
Any suggestions before sending it out.
