Question about Onkyo TA-R440 Single Dual Cassette Deck

Open Question

Onkyo TA-6210 tape deck suddenly stops playing

Hello, I have an Onkyo tape deck - single tape, pretty new, not often played - that up to now has been working fine.  I'm trying to transfer cassette to digital, and all the sudden no matter what tape I'm playing, the deck suddenly stops at random intervals.  I've tried winding the tapes in various ways but this hasn't helped (and the issue has happened on every tape, as I've said) - anyone know why this might be happening and how I can work to fix it? 
Thanks! Joss

Hi,

Did you try a hard reset by unpluging all the cords form back for 30min and then plug it back.I'll let you know if there is any service manual available.

Goodluck..

HELLO

By the fault you describe this sounds very much like a belt problem. Take the case off the deck and check the belt(s). Some decks can use more than one belt and you need to look at their condition.

Are they too slack around pulleys maybe? Belts don't last forever and I'm not too sure of the age of your deck. But personally, I would change them all.

Make sure the tape path is clean as well, clean heads, pinch roller and capstan.

Sounds like the cassette tape itself is too tight to play, try fast forwarding or rewinding the tape in the deck all the way to the end of tape several times before trying to play. This may solve the problem

Onkyo TA-2700 - Won't Play Tapes


Open the deck and look for the copper colored leaf switches (above the plastic comb) that get corroded / dirty over the years.. Clean them with deoxide or similar and your are most likely good to go..

Tape deck won't play.


Sounds like the belt that drives the capstan is too slack or decomposed, The capstan(s) which are connected to a geared flywheel, also drives the transport mechanism. There can also be tarnish on the sensor leaf switches, preventing contact. You might try to repair it yourself but, it is not an easy or simple job

Cassette Recorder play problem


Sounds like the tape tension sensor is stuck. The sensor is always telling the mechanism that the tape has reached the end.
