The service manual mechanical parts break down usually indicated how the belt should be routed. An experienced Technician can determine how they go as well.

Check leaf switches and also, press play -- after a few minutes, feel motor(s) for heat build up. If it gets hot, either motor is bad of something is preventing it from rotating

You can but try! However either make a drawing of how the thing fits together or better still take pictures if you have a digital camera. Then you will know how it fitted together.

Capstans wont turn all the time


This is notorious of a stretched belt. The belt should be a new one of less than 3 years old otherwise it needs to be replaced. The dula capstan decks are picky as to what belt goes into them that is why I get mine from Marrs Commununications and the belt would be the 16.8 " sized belt. Oler decks like that also need all kinds of other work as well.

Hi Kip,
This is the typical service request and I do not have experience with that deck but many others in the last 40 years. I am still working on decks in the Chicago area if you need it looked at and there are guys allover the states that could also do it. You might post this on tapeheads.net forum where you would get more help and loactions of people near your area.

I have had my 1991 lexus ls400 for a couple years now and I've been using the cassette deck in the stock stereo unit all the time by using one of those cassettes with the 3.5mm headset wires coming out...


The tape deck in the unit probably needs to be fixed. Even though you are using an artificial tape supplying a signal to the heads, there are still motors and belts running in the unit if it thinks a tape is in there. Now a belt or a motor has failed and the deck will not stay in tape mode. Thus pulling the unit out of the dash and having it serviced will be required to use this I pod function. There has to be easier ways to do this- I would consult Crutchfield about it.

I have a nikko cassette deck nd 790 and the tape wont play


Most likely the belts in it are broken or loose. If you don't have the time or inclination to work on the deck yourself, then send it off to a good Technician. I am not sure I have seen more than a couple of these in 40 years but it is likely that I could fix it.

The DAT machine needs new belts and maybe some cleaning. These fail all the time due to old belts that lose the tension that is required.

Cassette Tape Deck Problem


Unit may have worn belts that are slipping. All cassette player belts are subject to deterioration even if recently installed. You may try ordering the belts yourself and have a service tech install them. The tech that installed belts 9 months ago may have used used belts. Although dishonest, it is common.

Sony mp3 MHC-RG440s


well fuses are at the power supply sections and if the tape was jamed inside the deck, just disconnect the plug and try to take-off the case/cover of your unit but before opening it wait for about 1-2 hours to discharge the capasitors and then disassymble your unit try to get the tape deck and then get a knife a scissor, something to cut the tape inside the deck, thats the best solution, but you won't get your tape back though even when you get your tape uncut well, when you play it again you will not get good sound.

maybe your tape deck have a problems, maybe a broken gears, a belt was snaped, or a relay is the main problem.

its better to observe your unit first before you play a tape again.

ok? hope you could get your system back in good condition and have a good day.
