Won't rewind microcassette recorder

I ordered a sony M-535V off ebay and it was in perfect condition. I only started having problems a week or so after. It won't rewind, you have to press play a couple of times before it responds, fast forwarding is tough because you can hear cogs moving in the background and each time at the begining of a recording, ait freezes, makes a buzzing noise and records! help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Although this unit may look new, it is over 10 years old. The problem is probably that the rubber belts and drive tire are bad. They can fail even if never used. I would suggest replacing with a newer model.

Microcassette won't play but does rewind and fast forward


I have the 3 of these units at my office with the exact same problem. Turns out, with a little tinkering there is a simple fix.

Open up the unit (by unscrewing the two screws underneath) and look for a brass disk with a black rubber band around it that connects to a small tip. The rubber band should be either stretched, broken, or even melted. This is the problem. Over time the rubber band deteriorates which causes the unit to not play a tape (rewind and fast forward operate differently).

Replace the deteriorated rubber band with a new one similar in thickness and size. That should work like a charm. Be careful if the original rubber band has melted. It is tar-like and will be difficult to remove.

Hope this helps.

MC-60 tape says, "end of


Wow, microcassettes! (Sorry, I thought they were so cutting edge when they were.......cutting edge!)
Anyway, forgive the humour - you've most likely got a tape jam in the cassette itself but if it does this with other cassettes then you've got a dead rewind function your message indicates that you've got a later model recorder with a status display.
What does Fast Forward do?
I know it's annoying but the cheapest option may be to turn the cassette over and use FF if it works OK.
Have you checked out digital pocket recorders?
For the same money, or less, than yours likely cost new, they free you from cassettes, tape winding time, poor quality - all those analogue hassles.
The memory (time) capacity even the most bog-standard (as we say in the UK!) ones have is mind blowing.

Have a panasonic RR930 microcassette transcriber. Right now the foot pedal will not allow rewind though when I press the pedal I can hear it engage. I can, however, rewind right on the unit itself. ...


If neither rewind nor backspace work, the common problem would be that the solenoid grease has dried up and the solenoid is not retracting all the way. However, the track that the mechanism moves in also wears out, as well as the plastic rocker that depresses the rewind button where it engages the metal slide.

If backspace works but not rewind from the pedal then the problem is the pedal.

Suddenly my Sony M-2000 Microcassette Transcriber will not PLAY. The tape will Rewind and Fast Forward fine, but when you push PLAY, it just beeps and won't move. Any ideas?


Just talked to Exec. Communication Systems. He said that the play motor is not turning (the rewind and fast forward uses a separate motor) and the problem is either the belt or the motor. They can repair them at $82.00 plus parts and shipping.
