Question about Philips AZ2785 Cassette/CD Boombox
Philips AZ2785 Cassette/CD shelf unit/boom box. The tape decks quit working. Was using it, stopped the deck to talk on phone, pressed PLAY and would not turn anymore. Neither side will turn. I do hear a noise, like a motor sound, or a hum, but the spindles (?) do not turn - with or without a tape in. I am a 62 year young lady who truly loves this machine and hates to be without it. Can't find "goodies" like this much anymore. This one was manufactured in August 2001. My common sense guess would be a belt? Is this something a mechanically minded gal could tackle? If so, where to get parts? THanks SOOOO much for any advice!
There are a couple of belts inside this unit that most likely need to be replaced. Unfortunately this is not the easiest unit in terms of access. I would not suggest an attempt to replace the belts yourself if you have no experience with that sort of thing. The belts should not cost more than $10 total. Check in your area for a service shop that handles audio gear. The total repair cost for this should not exceed $75.
