Re: Cassette player not working

Cassette players usually have a little rubber band that connects the motor to the spindles. If everything else is fine, I would suggest seeing if it slipped off somehow (or got cracked and snapped)

I have memorex radio/cd/cassette player model MP3226. The PLAY button on the cassette tape does not stay in the down position when pressed when a tape is in the housing. If I remove the tape, and press...

I can imagine 2 cases for your problem:
Either there is a mechanical problem and something is not allowing the "play mechanism" to go all the way up to the clip position when the cassette is in the housing,
Or the tape isn't rolling up properly. Some of these deck's have some kind of protection and when the tape isn't rolling properly a system stops the play procedure. Check if both of the rollers for the tape are spinning around properly. In case of not spinning, run the cassette fast speed forward and backward in order to come to the proper state. Also check without any cassette is any roller spinning around or not?

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

Cassette player doesnt play or record, ff or rewind. CD player, AM/FM radio works fine.

If you hear a faint whirring sound from the cassette player while performing these functions, the motor is fine, but you require a new drive belt/s that need to be fitted at an electronics shop. If you hear not sound at all, the motor has died (possibly belts too), again it will require and electrinics repair shop visit.
For the sake of repairing it, it maybe cheaper to buy a new one.

Cassette players jammed

actually you can not lubicate the cassette players. it has to do with a belt inside. your players may need to be demagnitized. i would go to radio shack or electronic store and try a cassette cleaner/demagnitizer and see if that solves the problem. i would even try different batteries or a ac power adapter if you have the plug. some batteries make units run slow. i would even get a can of dust cleaner that you find in the electronics section. you spray it in and it cleans the inside of the dust that may be inside.

Eats my Cassette Tapes

Ok sound like the play head is out of a-line ment - easy way to fix if it is this - remove from the mains supply and open the cassette deck door - press the play button down and look at the play head there is 2 screws 1 either side 1 is fixed and 1 is sprung - now inset batterys (much safer) - try and fit a cassette in without using the cassette door should just fit in then press play and ajust the Right hand side scree with a small screwdriver (insulated) and ajust slightly to the left or to the right and this should fix the chewing - to get it just right use headphones ajusting left to right will tke the sound + & - to each earphone. Warning dont turn to far to the left as this will undo the screw completely - u have a least 1 whole turn either way is fine

RCA Boom Box, Cassette Player works improperly

This sounds like a dirty or sticky pinch roller - use a commercial cassette head cleaner - or ear but with a alcohol cleaner -

If the capston is not rolling the cassette forward this my be due to a broken belt - or may have just jumped off - power down the product and disconnet from the mains - then open it up - normaly the front come away undo the mounting screws from around the cassette mechanism normaly around 4 and carefuly look at the back there should normaly be 2 rubber band one to the capston and 1 to the pich roller the belt that may be broken is the smaller of the too. most cassette deck use the same size belt
