Hello- i have a 2nd hand Kenwood stereo double cassette KX-79CW

Hello- i have a 2nd hand kenwood stereo double cassette deck--KX-79CW and she has just begun malfunctioning. no longer playing in forward or ff in either cassette slot and playing sluggish in reverse and rewinding in reverse. after reading thru this site i believe i realize better what the problem could be but plz tell me again. also tell me if it is something that is better dealt with at a repair shop or if i might do it myself. i have crippled hands and pretty diminished strength but i love problem-solving. thx-catgirl

SOURCE: I have a Kenwood KX

The flywheel belt would have broken or gone slack and fallen off the motor pulley. You can confirm this by opening the top and looking inside. If you can shake the machine holding it upside down the belt might even fall off.Replacing the belt is a tricky job. Its like putting back a bicycle chain except there is a metal plate behind the flywheel and your hand won't go there.

Looking for schematic for Kenwood KX-55 stereo cassette tape deck


These dual cassette deck are rarely worth he effort to put repair time into. I checked Hi Fi Engine and they did not have anything. Is it worth a $100 repair bill? if not then look for a good solid single deck.

I have a kx-w4050 dual kenwood tape deck niether side will play hear click and counter moves one then another click. Is there a way to fix this?


Yes, the belts need to be check and idlers or whatever drive mechanism that is used in that system. Dual deck units are among the most unreliable units there are and a reason I tell people for the last 30 years not to buy those things. Almost most of the time they are not worth fixing due to their poor performance at the end. These are facts not just opinion.
