The tape deck to my head unit keeps switching sides nonstop when u put a tape in. i didnt try to clean it cuz i didnt have the cleaning kit thing and its not hooked up right now. wanted to see what it could be first.
also, the sound only works on one side. is there a fuse i can replace in the head unit or did it just decide to stop working completely. right now it is wired to one side so i have sound on all speakers.
any advice or anything you know would be very helpful with repairs.
The adapter is tripping your radio's auto revere. The radio thinks it's
at the end of the tape so it switches sides. Tape adapters especially
the cheaper ones are made a couple 100,000 at a time an sometimes the
machine that makes them is off so it makes bad adapters. If you look at the face of the adapter you will see a silver
head in the center just to the left an the right of the center hole
you'll see two smaller holes one on each side. look inside these holes
an make sure there's nothing in them no padding or plastic tabs. If
there is anything in these holes remove it. This is whats tripping the
auto reverse .These hole should be about a 1/4" deep . next with a small
razor blade shave all four sides about the same as the thickness of the
blade this should remove any burrs or misshapen plastic.

Norrmally the head unit/deck has a blue wire for the remote in the Pioneer set. So check this out and use a meter to see for voltage when the head set is switched on. Now you can connecct this as the remote swiching required for your amplifier. hope you look into the back side of the head unit ,in the cluster wire from the connectors. Good day
This is a faulty firmware problem in the player. It may have a faulty internal capacitor that is screwing up the player. You can use a capacitor tester to find faulty capacitor or replace with a cd player
your cassette seems to be jammed, try removing the player open it which should reveal the trapped cassette then try to carefully remove the tape as it may have got stuck around the capstans(rubber bits) sometimes when tapes haveen't been played for a long time they tend to become loose, try to ensure that the tape is tight by using a pencil inserted into the spool and turn it until the tape tightens please take care not to over tighten. good luk
I'm guessing that you wired the 2 units together including the speakers? the 2 units may be of different potentials and can't be wired together like that...they would need diodes or a relay to isolate one from another.. first you need to see if you toasted each of these by separating the wiring and trying them separately...just a thought
hi.....can you check if the rola ( that has teath and roling the tape ) in ur cassette adapter is actually turinig easy because whith the new cassettes if it is hard they swich the sides thinking that the tape finished if they hard try to losen them......hopfully that wil work
MAKE SURE YOU PUT THE HOOKS STRAIGHT IN SAME ANGLE AS RADIO NOT QUITE ALL OF THE WAY IN AND PULL OUT RADIO WITH OUT FACE PLATE ON.YOU MAY NEED TO MOVE IN AND OUT A LITTLE TO FIND EXACT SPOT TO BRIDGE OPEN METAL CATCH TABS,BENT SIDES OUT.ALSO MAY HAVE MOUNTIG BOLT ON BACK OF HEAD UNIT [RADIO] NEED TO GET IN BACK OF UNIT EITHER FROM UP TOP OR DOWN BELOW.ALSO A SCREW MAY BE ATTACHED TO SIDE OF MAIN UNIT IF FRONT CONTROL PANEL DOESNT COME OFF.
This is often caused by a problem with the speakers or speaker wiring. A speaker wire that's pinched behind the head unit will cause this problem if it's shorted to dash metal or the deck chassis.
The first thing to do is remove the head unit and inspect all the speaker wiring for bare spots or pinched spots. If everything looks okay, disconnect all four speakers from the deck and switch it on. If it still shows "protect" then you have a defective head unit. If not, then turn it off, re-connect one of the speakers, and turn it on again. Continue until you find the speaker output that puts the deck into protect mode.
this use to occur to myself also, then i had switched tapes....now i only use maxell 90 min (or sony) all 110 / 120 min tapes use to jam up....as of right now this will continue to occur to you because the tape is now wrinkle and not smooth like it suppose to be...plus every two weeks you should take a q-tip (wet it no alcohol) to to clean your rec / play head and the black wheel inside the deck....i know a little late...but i this helpful
