Tape is slow and whirring noise

Alex somebody technical will have to look at what is wrong with your deck. What is the shape of this piece of plastic I tried to service a Nakamichi the other day and the reason for the deck to burn one of the motors from a sticker that was used for the identification and it jammed the mechanism up. It sound as if there is a part from the Pause control if this is one of the units in those made in China after about 1990

Tape recorders.


Most tape problems would be mechanical in nature. I am venturing a guess that the belt(s) are cut. If your brand/model uses two (2) separate motors, then either both belts are cut (unlikely) or the regulator circuitry powering these motor(s) are defective. In some instances, the logic circuitry (especially those with dubbing features) maybe at fault.

Corrective procedures would entail opening the unit for a look and see. This of course would require that you be familiar with electronics circuitry & mechanical components, use of a DVM and possibly even soldering. Should you be uncomfortable going this route, perhaps it will be to your advantage to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Incidentally, should the downtime and cost of repair be no longer economically reasonable, then perhaps purchase of a new unit might have to be considered.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Deck and Fence refinishing

Is your wood deck weatherd and grey and you'd like to restore it with minimum effort and expense. Of course you can go to your local home improvement center and spend $$ for cleaning solutions which require a lot of elbow grease to use properly or you can follow this simple, yet very effective procedure.
  • Purchase a few gallons of regular fousehold bleach
  • Useing a soft bristle push broom brush bleach over deck surface. Almost immediately you'll see the weathering disappear.
  • When done hose off surface with garden hose and allow wood to dry completely.
  • Apply your new deck stain and behold a deck that looks almost new.
NOTE: You can use a deck sprayer in place of the broom...just be sure to wear old clothing as the bleach will ruin the clothing.

2001 Chevrolet Tracker- Broken Radio- Where To Find New One

you can buy really inexpensive stereos on ebay . yes decks are almost universal . you can use just about any. but you would have to go purchase a deck install kit averaging at about $15 . its pretty much a spacer, your stock deck is really big and most decks are short so you'll have a lot of room. thats why the install kit in needed

Do I need a new equalizer?

Karla, Equipment and water especially SALT water (AND SALT AIR) don't mix very well. The constant high moisture environment affects all the connections (the wires) the rca connectors (where one thing plugs into another, AND the switches. The wires may LOOK good but the connections may not be. When you say "all seems to be in good condition" tell me specifically how you checked them. Sometimes they LOOK good, but ar not making connection. While your stereo is ON, get in there and wiggle everything and see it the speakers come back on.

My first guess is your amplifier/reciever. Does it have speaker switches? If it does, move them up and down or click them many times to see if you can work the corrosion a little. This may help.

I'll try and help, let me know some of the stuff I've asked fo above.

Neither deck will open to insert tapes in my dual deck vcr

It seems they didnt refirbish it, you should return it..

If for some reason you cant return it.

The problem is your carriage unit is damaged
The carriage unit is the parts that load the tape into the vcr
If you think you are able you can open it up and look if any springs have fallen out. If not then change the unit.

If you cant fix it your self a technician can easily do it for you since it isnt that hard and somplicated to repair, you just need good retainence
