Question about JVC KS-FX250 Cassette Player
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.
