Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Posted by Anonymous on
You do not list brand and model but it is typical that the belt replacement is missing the mark in that the reel rotation sensor is not detecting rotation of the reel table and therefore trying to go the other way. The reels have to be turning in play mode. If they do not auto stop or the reverse function thinks the tape is at end.

possible that the drive belt has broken or is slipping. Disable all outside noise and listen closely as you attempt play or fast forward button. can you hear a motor turning? I have replaced a drive belt in these but may be hard to find except maybe on ebay (search for an as-is unti for parts only).

I'm pretty sure the auto-reverse is NOT supposed to work during recording. What would be the point since it only records in one direction?
And I'm pretty sure there's only one reverse sensor, usually to the left of the heads and not necessarily on a tension arm. The sensor foil is supposed to be on the non-oxide side of the tape so it will adhere better and never contact the heads.
This picture of a GX-635 shows a typical transport ...
There's a knob for how the auto reverse. Is it set correctly? I believe infinite forward / backward play is possible if you have the knob set properly, a sensor foil on the tape and the tape counter set to 0000 at the beginning of the recording.
