Question about Pioneer CT-W205R Single Dual Cassette Deck

1 Answer

Faulty Pioneer CT-W450R

I have had this unit in storage for 5 years, it is like new. When I set it up, the motors for the tapes will not turn, although they did briefly when I first activated it.

All the other lights come on, but it just sits there. No movement.

Can you advise on possible troubleshooting?

Check to see if their is any voltage going to the motors. If not look at the power supply. Electrolytic Capacitors dry up when not being used and can cause faults like that.

The rubber belts inside the unit have gotten stiff and slippery. All belts should be replaced. That will resolve the problem.

Pioneer ct-wm60r reads err, has new belts,

There are sensors in the unit that are false triggering and some mechanical parts that require alignment. It can take two or three hours to put it back right if you are not familiar with that transport.
This is why I tell people to stay away from changers and auto reverse units as sooner or later they will be a real problem for someone to fix.

I turn the unit on I have power to the unit. I put a tape in to play and the tape does not play. nothing happens. the last time I used it was about one year there some kind of belt drive motor or...

The belt drive unit is only ran by a SMALL rubber band. It may be that the actual band is broken or the motor itself is shot. Unplug the stereo from the wall and remove the cover CAREFULLY, look in at the tape drive and check the "RUBBER BAND" first.

Why one tape at deck A won"t come out. it stock inside unit

There are lots of causes to this. For example the mechanism has jammed. The tape has become entangled in the capstan or elsewhere. Plastic damage causing the mechanism to not move back to the eject position. Some decks have a powered eject that is faulty. Broken spring, or one that has fell off.

My pioneer ct-f7171 cassette deck needs a little speed adjustment, where is the pot located?

Usually on the back of the servo motor. You need a speed alignment tape and frequency counter or wow and flutter meter to do this adjustment correctly. Often times the speeds go up as the motor start to fail.
