Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Before this last week, the cassette player worked fine, but every once in a while, if I tried to rewind or forward an older tape, it would switch to side 2 and play. Now it doesn't even play, but just keeps switching sides, on any tape. I don't need it to play both sides, so if I could simply disable that function in order to get it to play again, that would be okay, too.
The unit has to come out of the car and taken to a auto Stereo repair shop. I would guess without seeing it that there is a loose belt that is causing a detection of the deck not turning the reel the detector is on and that tells the electronics the tape has stopped and if there is no drive in the other direction it does the same thing. If a capstan belt breaks there is no drive in either direction. The belt may not be hard to replace but you need to know the routing and the size then just order from MAT Electronics or MCM Electronics and put it in. I also think the Head and Pinch Rollers are going to need a real good cleaning. Use Naphtha for that. I serviced car stereos back in the 80 and 90 not so much anymore. If you can do it depends on your technical ability.

it has probably thrown the capstan belt and will require a new belt fitted. the transport relies on capstan rotation to engage play. a separate reel motor operates ff/rew and takeup funtions
