Question about Audio Players & Recorders
When I turn on the tape deck, it just hums. I removed the top of the case and see that a small, thin black belt is broken and laying inside the deck. How do I replace this belt? Thanks,
You get oneof the approximate same size or slightly smaller and install it where it is suppose to go. Most shops that are competent will have the belt on hand and if this process seems to advanced, then you are not up to the job. You might have to take the deck out of the unit to work on it. If you are asking this question that would indicate that it might be more than you can do. Some people work on their own equipment only to wreck it as they have no experience in tape deck repair. There is often times a lot more to do than to JUST change a belt.

If you are not familiar with such work, I don't recommend trying to install belt(s). Replacing belts may involve disassembly of mechanism parts and critical adjustments to follow. Take to a pro/tech

Without physically looking at the cassette deck myself, I cannot be 100% sure the tape is wrapped around the pinch roller and capstan. The capstan is the chrome rod which the rubber pinch roller pushes to regulate the speed of the tape moving across the head. However it is approximately a 90% chance the take up reel for the tape stopped working from a bad tape or a loose belt which drives the tape take up reel. The clicking sounds like it could be the auto reverse solenoid because it thinks the tape has reached the end of play. The fun part is to remove the tape which you may have to disassemble the front panel if you cannot gain access to the tape from the top or bottom. You will need to cut the tape and remove it from the capstan and pinch roller to open the cassette door. Sometimes you can remove the capstan to free the tape. Once you have cleaned all the tape out of the unit make sure the belt for the take-up is good. If it is glazed, cracked, loose or broken order a belt. Clean all the pulleys and capstan and replace the belt. Your unit should be functional after the above procedure.
