Play function won't disengage on Technics dual cassette deck

Can’t open left cassette door and get cassette out because play function won't disengage. Tape keeps turning (but without sound) so long as power is on. This is accompanied by a mechanical whining noise never heard before.

Apparently pinch wheel is raised so that -- even when I unlatch door from inside -- it will only open a little bit. Have tried turning flywheel but still no luck. Belts all look okay.

It’s an RS-T18 deck.

    I managed to get the cassette out by pressing the pause button while the machine was running, unlatching the door from the rear, then jiggling the door open which brought the cassette with it. Slight wrinkle in the tape but no other damage.



    Of course this didn't solve the problem. The machine is still in the PLAY mode and neither the stop button nor any of the others has any effect.



    I still haven't figured out what's causing the rubbing noise when the machine is running. I can't see anything that appears broken.

Remove the cover to see if any belts under the cassette player is cut. Or to see if there are any obstructions.Remove the front cover.which will remove the tape housing of the cassette player. you can check for any broken plastic compoments that might be keeping the housing from opening.Or any belts that may have been cut.

My technics cassette deck tr575 everything seems to work all the functions all the buttons but when I put a cassette tape in the unit I see no responce on the db meter... Everything is functioning on


There are 2 long switches, maybe 4" long, called record/play switches. These can certainly cause this. Try cleaning them with the power unplugged. You would turn the cassette deck on end, so the switches are vertical. Use LPS-1 or LPS-2, and spray a very small amount in the end. Work the switch back and forth and see if that helps. Good luck.

I just got an Onkyo R1 TA-RW505 dual cassette deck and the left deck door won't open with the eject button. I did get it open by sliding a slim knife behind the door and it appears that there is a


This is most common as the catch is there to stop you from opening the cassette door while the head base is in the up position. The reason many of these cheap dual cassette decks all have this problem is that the mechanisms are not built to last and then the cost to repair them exceeds their value. You need to find out why the mechanism is not getting back to the stop position and when you do this the eject issue will be fixed. Typically it is a stretched belt.
Putting it in is another matter though.

Sony TC-WR690 doors will not open to remove the cassette.


If you remove the cover after unplugging the AC, you will see that when you push the eject button that on the back side the putton is held back by a white plastic piece. Push down the white plastic piece as you press the eject button. The door will open and the tape will release. I jsut did this today on my Sony TC WR 670 dual tape player. Both sides were blocked. I noticed that both fuses on the board were also blown. New fuses didn't solve the problem. May be that the transformer is out?

The doors of my technics deck RS TR575 don't open or close when I press open/close switch, it sound , but not responding. Please help me Thanks Manuel


It's a simple job for a repairer - if you can find one that will have anything to do with audio cassette technology anymore, sorry, but I'm finding that some won't.
Not knowing where you are I don't know which currency you use but if it helps, here in the UK I'd say don't spend more than £25 on this.
There are still new cassette decks made and lots of good used ones around.
I know Technics is a very good make but I was looking at superb condition Nakamichis the other week for £35 which are a far better brand.

Technics 373 Dual Cassette - Playback Stops


Suggest having a good clean and replace belts. If it stops around halfway on a C90 or near the end then there's a load problem on the take up reel, before halfway the supply reel.

Door won't open


It might be a model that has a special IC that allows the door to open and close.

You'll need to take the case off.

try hifiengine.com...that site may have the service manual.
