95% of all tape deck mechanical issues are caused by the belts going bad. if they have not been changed, then goto turntableneedles.com and click on the "find my player" link it will take you to the two most commonly failed belts for your model. They are square belts. If you open it up and see flat belts then email them measurement information by threading a piece of string from around the pulleys where the flat belt is found. ONLY OPEN AND ATTEMPT THIS IF THE POWER UNPLUGGED & YOU ARE QUALIFIED OR EXPERIENCED WITH ELECTROMECHANICAL DEVICES.

Take out the tape and press play, do the wheels move? if not the motor has burnt out, the tapes may have been sticky. Hold a tape and wind the wheels with your finger, are they difficult to move?

Vhs tape stuck in vcr


Some one needs to open it to see if the tape is loaded but wrapped around a post or tangled up.

What usually causes this is the mechanism that moves the tape has a problem---bad or broken belt or rubber drive wheel that moves tape is bad.

Its called eating tapes.

With it apart you may be able to extract the tape and then insert with it apart to see if reels etc are or are not moving in RR and FF first and then in play to see what is not moving.

Tape Transport issue


FF and Rewind are functions of the reels, not the capstans. If the reels fail to rotate in response to capstan-driven tape motion the unit will assume a broken tape or end of tape. I think you have a mechanical reel drive system failure. Take it to a shop for evaluation and correction.

Sounds like the pinch roller isn't engaging. The pinch roller is a black rubber wheel that presses against a silver post (capstan) the tape is held between them. With the door open and no tape press play. The roller and capstan should touch. If it recently ate a tape there could be some tape on the capstan that also will cause it to run fast.

BOTH doors jammed on TC-WE605S


Some tape decks are belt-drive. If the belt is worn, it will either break or jump the cog and you will experience these kinds of problems. That's what happened with my Sony ES deck recently and I couldn't even eject the tape until I got the belt replaced.

Tape won't play, FF, or eject.


sorry to say that none.no trip button for that.i assumed that the magnetic strip of the tape is already wind up inside.you'll need to open the unit up and gently rotate the flywheel of the tape player until you can open the door of the tape compartment.no need to force or it will just break.

Cassette door will not open


Found more issues, got top off and door open but touch controls did not move flywheel in any mode for long and internal noise. Will abandon repair as probably too costly.Thanks

Not knowing what brand/model tape deck you have, I would suggest you make sure the belts are good before you get into replacing servo ICs

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.
