This machine uses a servo tension system. I am guessing that when you changed the belt you also upset one of the sensors. You will need to get a service manual and go to the tension setting section to verify or correct what is going on. These units were pretty complicated for regular users.
It will be good to do a good clean up of the reel drive and the take up drive. look for dirt or grease that prevents a clean take up or smooth drive. This will create some static which cause the noise while recording. Clean the surfaces so that the drive moves without friction. Hope you can take out the mechanism and do this service. Good day
Usually the tension of the take-up reel keeps the shut-off arm taught and everything works. If the shut off arm falls down, the recorder stops. Is that what's happening?
Inadaquate (or NO) take-up tension can cause this; so can WARPED take up reels. Another possibility: if you play a lot of old tapes, the groove in the shut-off arm collects dirt and oxide, so the tape - as it goes through it - jams, and the take-up reel can not overcome the tension. The arm "falls down" and shuts off the machine. Also SOME tapes (which were "cut down" from 2"
tapes) are poorly ****, and will jam some machines.
This is what I do for a living, so if these suggestions don't work, give me more information, and I'll solve your problem.
