Norelco NT IIe unit does not play just squeals- belt is OK, the motor does not turn. Any ideas or history

Have open on bench- I have no schematics or Service manual. Looks like there are mechanically operated state type switches in the unit. All it does since it came in is in play mode it makes a squealing sound but no play motor movement- no voltage is applied to the motor. The fast wind and rewind do work. The only belt in the unit is fine. This is a motor control or switching problem. This is the first time I have seen one of these. Any ideas?

The clue is in the motor getting no voltage. A broken switch? Follow the motor leads to the source of where it gets power.

    I will have to work on this a little later as way too many units in my shop to worry about the small portable item that actually was resolved- I have other units of the same type here. I checked this but was not having any schematics to go further.

SOURCE: My Teac R-H500 tape deck will not play tapes

The belts will have failed. You will need to replace them for the deck to be reliable. If you are mechanically minded I can talk you through it... You giving me a FixYa rating will help my profile and loosen my lips on how to overhaul your deck. :)

SOURCE: Marantz Cassette Deck Model Sd 35 Tape door will not open

It sounds like the drive belts on the deck have broken (not allowing playing, FF or REW) and/or the tape got "eaten" meaning the tape itself has wound itself around the rollers and cannot free itself. I strongly doubt this is an electrical issue. Definately sounds mechanical.

As far as the door not opening, there's usually a hook that holds the door closed. If the unit is mostly disassembled, look near one of the sides of the door for a metal hook. It's normally spring loaded and can be moved manually. That should free the door. If your tape was eaten, it might take some gentle persuasion to unwrap it from the rollers.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Tape deck turns on, operation sounds & looks NORMAL- yet won't function

Belts are prone to harden over time, like 10 years. The belt probably broke.

If you don't feel comfortable removing the housing yourself, take it to a repair shop.

Unit probably needs belts. Over time, belts may become slack or decompose into tar-like compound. In this case, the deck will need to be cleaned and belts replaced. Take to pro/tech

SOURCE: Denon DRM 740 tape does not play

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.

Mdg9700 drum not turning


Without the schematic all I can do is go by the general schematic the schematic should be located in the control panel anyway a broken belt will cause the tumbler not to rotate, a bad belt switch, probably not the problem, an open safety thermostat will stop power to the motor, a bad motor of course will cause the problem and lastly a bad relay on the control board will do it, remember I do this everyday so for a DIY it make pose a bit of a problem to know these part locations or how to disassemble the unit

Cassette tape stops after 5 seconds


This can be due to state sensor switches being dirty or a bad loading mechanism belt. These are delicate type units and are not easy for a regular owner to service. Best to bring it to a Service Technician. My shop did 6 DAT machines last month.

I don't have the exact schematic... however sometimes they have RF bypass capacitors to ground on the balanced input lines and one side gets shorted. The schematic I do have is for an AC100. It shows a rather unconventional input circuit. You can download it here and it MIGHT be close to your unit:

http://elektrotanya.com/roland_ac-100ut.pdf/download.html

I note that this unit does NOT have Phantom power so you CANNOT use a condenser type mic with it unless you use a preamp with Phantom power... Maybe that is the problem?

No control of speed on bench grinder,need schematic


Unless the motor is a brush type universal unit, there is commonly no way to change the speed of an induction motor. There are AC motor speed control units available, but cost more than the grinder as they change the frequency as well as the voltage. There are speed controllable grinders available that use brushes so that simple electronics can control speed. Hope this helps!

Could be a belt tension issue. Try tensioning the belt by moving the motor and wheels farther apart by reanchoring the units,or,spanning the gap between units with a series of wood blocks and shims(wedges).Be careful with tensioning. Always manualy move the belt,unit unplugged. There should be some deflection(play) in the belt when pressed upon with a finger.
