Question about JVC Audio Players & Recorders
Have a JVC RXC50 with dual cassette decks. Neither deck will fast forward or rewind. Can that problem be corrected?
Posted by Anonymous on
These units can be fixed but require a lot of taking apart and thus can be expensive and very fast exceeds the cost of the unit- this is why most do not have them repaired. I have worked on them a lot in the olden days but now I am not making $8.00/ hr.

Many cassette decks employ separate belts for fast forward and rewind. It could be that one of them has come off.

The belts will have failed. You will need to replace them for the deck to be reliable. If you are mechanically minded I can talk you through it... You giving me a FixYa rating will help my profile and loosen my lips on how to overhaul your deck. :)

You have a broken transfer belt and it needs replacement.
This will require you to take the tape deck apart to service it.

There is an idler wheel behind the platen ( black plate behind the cassette)..replace the idler wheel.

Very likely the tape is wound around the capstan.
You may have to get at it by taking the unit's case off.
If I am right you might have to destroy the cassette unless you are very careful. Or, at least, have to cut the tape so as to unwind it from the capstan.
You could also try to open the door just enough to lift it up and off ... as if you were going to clean the tape heads.

It sounds like the belt is slipping or broken which monitors the speed of the tape movement. When you play or rewind the tape, it thinks the tape has reached the end of play and shuts off. You can try a different tape to make sure the tape does not have too much tension on it. If the second tape has the same result you will need to remove the top cover of the deck to inspect the tape drive mechanism. Make sure the belts and pulleys are clean and replace any belts which have glazing or cracks. If the belt is broken you will need to replace it with a compatible belt of the same length and width.
