Reels won't turn Forward, Fast Forward Or rewind

Bought this lovely little tape recorder MR-929 on ebay. Tested fine before being posted, but on arrival, although everything else appears to be working fine, it just won't turn. The unit is in perfect cosmetic condition. Not even any dust. All accessories are still in little plastic bags & unmarked. It appears to have done little work. Can somebody help?
When fast forward is selected, reels move just a little & then stops.
Yours in anticipation,
Len Moore.

    Thank you Bunnydawg,

    Your solution makes sense. Unfortunately I have left the deck with a repair company, but will check it out tomorrow morning.

    Thanks again,

    Len.

    Good morning Bunnydawg,

    Tried your solution but belts are all OK. Have returned to repair shop as I'm not educated in that field.

    Thanks for your input.

    Len.

There are small plastic belts that all power to be transferred from the motor to the tape reel. i would suggest that tho the item is pristine the belt(s) may have become brittle and broke with age (and environment such as heat). it is a fairly easy fix if you are mechanically inclined. the belt also could have come off in shipping (or there is a chance the seller was less then honest with you). i would consider writting to the seller and asking if they are willing to work with you on this issue... do not be put off too long as there is a limited time you can file a complaint thru ebay. I sold items on ebay at one time so have experience in that part of your problem as well

    fair enough... the belts are similar to O rings they use for seals but abit more flexable.



    Please consider rating this solution... thanks

When i put in a tape, i get a squeeling sound, and the tape won't play.


The only way is to take the top off and watch what the tape is doing! You might even see some object inside which should not be there!

The dictaphone wont rewind or fast forward and makes a bleeping noise


Hi,
Does the tape move when you press rewind or fast forward.
If the tape moves for a few seconds then bleeps it sound like a sensor problem.
If it only bleeps when the rewind and fast forward are pressed and the play is ok it sounds like the actuator motor is faulty,this motor enables the rewind and fast forward.
Hope this helps.

In order to maintain tape control and tension the reels always pull lightly in opposite directions during PLAY mode. The capstan moves the tape in the desired direction at a precise speed. If the capstan doesn't engage the tape BETWEEN itself and the pinch roller you'll get the reels battling over control of the tape. Check the tape routing.

Suddenly my Sony M-2000 Microcassette Transcriber will not PLAY. The tape will Rewind and Fast Forward fine, but when you push PLAY, it just beeps and won't move. Any ideas?


Just talked to Exec. Communication Systems. He said that the play motor is not turning (the rewind and fast forward uses a separate motor) and the problem is either the belt or the motor. They can repair them at $82.00 plus parts and shipping.

Play back on Sanyo mr-929 reel-to-reel tape recorder is backwards


I also have an MR-929. The information that you need is in the 'Stereophonic 4 track stereo''. As stereo is only two tracks, there is another 2 tracks in addition to the one you are listening to. Wind the entire reel to the empty spool, and then play that. As you have to physically turn the reel over to do so, you should then hear the other tracks (or track, if recorded in mono).
I use my 929 to play my parents recording of my family from the late 60s, which were recorded on a valve (tube) Ferguson machine, which had a green "magic eye" level indicator, which as a child I found fascinating!

Video tape gets eaten on rewind


Does the machine play tapes well? Clear steady picture and all? No tracking bars? wavering sound? Tape chewing is generally a problem with a bad Capstan Pinch Roller, Associated symptoms are as above. Please do recheck or confirm if any of the above problems are also present.
