Question about Panasonic RN-305 Handheld Cassette Voice Recorder
Earlier today, I dropped my tape player. The eject button was jammed and it took some work to get it unjammed. The player will fast forward and reverse, but will not play or record. Any ideas?
This kind of problem occurs if capstan motor stops running for some reason or mechanism drive belt got broken.
You need to take apart unit for visual check and replace it.
Replacement parts are available at Panasonic Parts Store.
Hope these info will help you.
Let me know if you have additional question.

The tape speed in governed by the capstan and the pinch roller - a thin silver pin and a rubber wheel about 3/4" in diameter. If the tape is not caught between the two, it will run at about the speed of the reels - fast, Check that the pinch roller moves up to the capstan pin when you select play. If it does not, there may be some tape jamming it or the arm may be bent or dislodged.
