Switches direction without reason

It thinks it has reached the end of the tape and should play the other side.

Here's what to do: take the cassette and slam it (gently) against a wall or desk. Turn it over and do it again. This loosens up the tape pack.

Then fast forward the tape all the way to the end and then rewind it all the way to the other end.

Before you play the tape make sure the cassette screws are tight. And make sure your tape heads are clean .

Cassette player plays tapes for awhile then will go garble like and auto reverse back and forth once then shut off. I noticed it seems the tape is getting kinked up or stuck on the rollers. looked for...

The reel drive of your set is not taking up the tape and resulting in no detection of reel pulse. this makes it switch over and the result happens again. Please clean up your drives, the rollers, change the belt and check the reel drive arrangement, the motors. I am sure the mechanism must be reset with new belts . This must solve your issue. Good day

Have Aiwa NSX-V9090 Stereo with jammed cassette. I removed the cassette; however the system still thinks it's in there? When I power up the system it tries to play the tape the stops. I am not able to load...

Check with a small torch, to ensure that there is no tape broken arround the pinch roller or head, if there was no tape broken away, between the pinch roller and the cassette head there is a white cassette bar, this may have become bent.

Sound Issues on Audio Book Cassette Tape

This might explain things...

By Margie Crawford

Cassettes can be damaged in a
number of ways. Besides just wearing
out, they can be broken, twisted,
stretched, stuck, demagnetized or
missing the pressure pad. Most of these
problems can be repaired except for
demagnetization which causes the
audio to fade in and out.
Cassettes can be demagnetized at the
self-check out terminals so do not
place them on the machine while
checking out other items. At home
do not place them on speakers or near
magnets. If the audio sounds backwards
or like a foreign language, it is twisted
and can be repaired.

RCA cassette recorder/player keeps shutting off. argggg

fast forward, reverse the cassette and fast forward again. if the tape is too tight the current sensor will always trip out the motor.
