yes the rubber rollers inside your unit have become hard,,and they are slipping, and the unit detects this,, u can purchase a product called re-grip [ for rubber products and it treats the rubber in such a way to make it soft and pliable again ] the product is sold by mcm electronics and can be found online,,, treat the surfaces of the rubber rollers in your unit and it should preform to original specs....any further help please email me at troublerst@hotmail.com...i hope this helps you

SOURCE: the speed of the recorder

Difference between 4cm and 1.2 cm speed is just like SP and LP speed in VCR etc. 1.2 cm speed selection will give you more recording time on same cassette.
VOR stand for Voice Operated Recording, if you enable this vor option, tape starts recording only at that time when sense any voice and will remain Pause if there is silence.
This option will also give you more recording time at same cassette by skipping empty space.

SOURCE: Sony Dual-Deck Cassette Player/Recorder, doors won't close

Are both sides not staying shut? If it's only one side, look to see if the latch is broken. You should see an arm move when you press down the eject button - while the door is open, press the eject button and see where the arm moves. You should see a hook that catches the door and keeps it closed. It could be broken, or just jammed. Look at the other side of the deck and see it it looks like it's working the same. Unjam the latch arm if it's stuck, or replace it if it's broken.

No sound after "recording" cassette


It obviously has a electronics problem that needs a Technician to work on it. The thing is people these days would rather throw items away than having them fixed- am I pod type mentality.
Combo units are not made to last very long as they are full of technology short cuts- they take a lot of time to fix.
If you want me to look at it, I am in the Chicago area.

Yamaha K-720 cassette deck will not play tape--immediately stops on auto-stop (or, perhaps, auto-reverse.) Fast-foward and fast-rewind are okay. Had this same problem repaired in the 1980s. How do I...


your problem is the flat belt that drives the 2 capstans. I asked you to check switches but remembered afterwards there is a different motor for fast forward reverse. When the machine is powered on, the capstan motor runs all the time. I bet the 2 capstans are not turning. You can see this if you slide up (gently) the cassette tinted cover. You need a new belt. If you are handy, you can do it yourself (about 2 hours) but it is tricky as you have to remove the complete cassette mechanism and then partially dismantle it to put on the new belt. If you need help I can probably guide you a bit. I just did it a few months ago. The belt size is 9.6 inches. One part number is FBM9.6 or you can try Yamaha service.

Where can I purchase new belts for the tape decks? onkyo pcs 31/21


Easiest is www.mcmelectronics.com they have a wide range of replacement belts. You will need to measure the old belts. Which can be a pain (taking them off measure then try and remember how they go back on a week later when you get the new ones) So take some Pics with a camera before you start.

I think the actual tape cassette is the problem not the player. olde tapes play very slowly, dragging, distorted sound. New tapes are fine. What can I do to re-vitalise the old draggy cassettes?


Actually the tape player itself is likely to be causing the problem. Cleaning the pinch roller and tape heads with a qtip and a small amount of rubbing alcohol should do the trick
