Question about Yamaha KX-W321 Single Cassette Deck
My Yamaha KX-W321 is rarely used. It was left unused for a year and then I started using it. First day the machine played fine but then the Deck B stopped ejecting due to mechanical jamming, which I solved. Then it stopped playback, rewind and forward. Please advise?
Yamaha has got the whole cassette assembly. just tell them if it's A or B side. becase it has different switches for the tape head one with erase the other PB only. this is a usual and common problem with Yamaha tape decks, nothign worng with the belts, the mechanism fails. you can get it to work one day, the next day it stops again.
i use to work with Yamah service and normally overhauling the mechnsm works but not a standard for Yamaha, they sometimes just replace the whole assembly.

If the heads are getting jammed in the up position it may be a failing capstan belt in the transport not disengaging the transport properly. replace the capstan belt. If one has failed both will probably be bad.
