The issue is, that I purchased a set of 2 belts via eBay for my deck. I fixed the problem with the belt to move the cassette. But there is a second set in the pack and I cannot install this. Perhaps it is...


The belts you have replaced are used to operate the loading/unloading mechanism I assume. On the bottom of the cassette mechanism you will find the other belts...one from motor to idler wheel assy. or actual reel hub. Older cassette decks also used a belt to drive the tape counter mechanism.

Older cassette decks used belts from the motor to the capstan, another from the motor to an idler assy. or tape reels (FF & RR) and another belt driving the mechanical tape counter.

your receiver has (or should have) input and output connections,, your turntable needs to be hooked to the receiver,, then with the output cables that feed your cassette player you need to go, in to out and out to in ( receiver output to the input of the tape player, and out of the tape player to the in on the receiver, while playing a record if you hit record on the tape player it will record the record, depending on the receiver it will show you the meter readings for either the in or out,, they vary

Tape is torn and I need to get it out of the cassette housing, splice the tape, then place in a new housing. Where can I get a repair kit??


Cat. No. 44-626 used to be available at Radio Shack but no more.

This might work..

"Splice the broken end to the take up reel of a newly bought cassette that you can open.
open the new cassette,
trash the interior
If you can't move the old reels to the new mechanism:
tape one side of the broken cassette's tape to the new take up reel
close the new cassette (do not open or break the old cassette if it's not already done)
insert a pencil into the gizmo on the take up reel on the new cassette,
reel up the old cassettes tape into the new cassette
re open the new cassette
splice the other end to the new cassette's gizmo
close the new cassette
record the contents to digital"

I have a pioneer CT-F900 cassette deck, when I press play the reel side that should take up the slack stops and the tape bunches up and the drive mech disengages. The tape stops. Your help, please Steve


The take-up reel is dragging or the belt is stretched or broken. No surprise on a deck this old. Try Fast Forward. Try Rewind. Same result?

If it still doesn't work, and it happens with only one cassette, rap the cassette's flat side against a solid flat surface to loosen it. Try again.

If you're really an old-school deck user you probably know how to cheat the transport with no tape resent to make the capstans engage for cleaning. Try that. The two reels should spin opposite as if maintaining tension. If the right one is stationary or lethargic (try to feel how strong it pulls compared to the left one), there's a loose or broken belt.

Next step. Get out the can opener, go inside and see what's wrong. Good luck.

Does this recorder have its own amplifier?


Sure, the tape will play.

Copying tapes does not require an external amp, but LISTENING to them might. The A-4010 has a headphone jack so you're good to go with headphones alone if necessary.

To record, Connect the Output from the new deck to any Line Level Input on your recording device - (NOT PHONO).

If you can, set your record levels up in advance being careful not to have them too high if you're going digital as overloads are not handled well.

As with any old, rare or prized open-reel recording, avoid excessive transport handling of the tape, especially rewinding at high speed. Get yourself some Q-tips and isopropyl alcohol and clean the deck carefully, especially the capstan and idler wheel. Cheat the two tension levers manually and press Play. The capstan will engage the rubber idler. Clean the roller first with a moist Q-tip, being careful not to get strands caught up in the capstan (I'd hold the Q-tip around the 3-o'clock position on the idler), until you get nothing but a little black from it on a clean moist Q-tip. Then press Pause and the roller will retract but the capstan will still spin. Clean it with a fresh wet Q-tip until it is shiny and no more color comes off it.

Handle the reel without placing any inward pressure on the flanges as edge damage can occur.

Make your best stab at a transfer in as few tries as possible as the tape oxide and base are very old and will not tolerate repeated playbacks. Run the tape completely in one direction, flip it over, CLEAN THE DECK AGAIN, and play it back in the other direction (avoiding REWIND as it places a lot of stress on the tape and will probably leave the tape wound unevenly with edges sticking out all over the place. A normal speed playback should wrap the tape nice and tight and even for storage. Avoid exposing the tape to high humidity, dust or heat.

If you have access to a CD Recorder, I recommend making a full resolution Master copy on it and using the digital copy for any subsequent copying, ripping, editting, etc. Archive the original tape and make a digital copy of your end results, too. Good luck.

I'll make this offer to you. If you get it digitized and onto a CD I can probably reprocess it to clean up tape hiss and other problems inherent in 70's-era taping. Analog tape recording was my passion and still is, but I save everything digitally now.

Hi saabangerman

The unit sounds like it has a take up clutch or takeup idler problem. Check all the drive assemblies in the unit. Remove the cover from the front of the transport inside the cassette well, and check the condition of the idlers and reel base drives. The counter belt can also gatherup and prevent the takeup reel from working correctly, or fire the auto stop mechanism preventing it from playing, although that sounds to be ok in this case as the unit will FF and REW ok. The takeup drive is supplied by a different drive idler as it requires much lower and more controlled torque. This unit was always considered to be a great tape deck and is well worth a bit of attention for restoration. You can get a new belt kit for $19.00 from here

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.
