Cassette stuck in Sony TC-K611S deck

I haven't used my cassette deck in a couple years, but my girlfriend's Mom asked me to transfer a tape to CD for her. Upon powering up, the unit made a low humming noise, but I didn't think too much of it. I opened the door, put the cassette in, and it wouldn't play. I pressed play a few times, pressed fast forward - no movement. I then tried to eject the tape figuring I'd find a different deck to record from and it wouldn't eject. Upon removing the case, the front, and the cassette lid, I noticed that the roller and heads all seem to be stuck in the play position. So, I can't even remove the cassette holder to get the tape out. I'd like to eventually fix the unit, but for right now I'd just like the tape so I can finish the project. How can I release the roller, etc?

Thanks,
Steve

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.

How to record a cassette tape to a cd


Your question is posted under a "CD Shelf System" heading. If you really have one of these, the answer is "you can't". The CD player is a player only, not a recorder.

On the other hand, if what you're asking is how to transfer cassette tapes to CD using a computer, there are a couple of ways. One is to connect a cassette player (boom box, component system cassette deck, etc.) to the line-in jack of your computer's sound card. Download and install Audacity, which is free software for recording and editing sound. Then you can record the sound from your cassettes as you play them into the computer.

Another option, If you want to be fancy and spend a little money, is to buy a USB cassette deck. It automatically converts the cassette audio to digital and sends it to your computer over a USB cable. Recording software is supplied (sometimes the Audacity program mentioned before). Several companies make them. Here's one from a company called ION that some friends of mine have, and it seems to work well for them. They've been converting a lot of tapes of family members, and Audacity has been good for cleaning up tape hiss and enhancing the sound.

Either way, once you have the sound in your computer and processed to your liking, you just need to burn it to a CD using whatever burning software you have. (I use CDBurnerXP. It's free, easy to use, and does everything needed for normal CD and DVD burning.)

Where can I have my 15 year old Sony Model TC-WR465 Stereo Tape Deck Repaired? The problem appears to be mechanical. The tapes will not advance on either side of the unit.


Depend on your location and willingness to ship the unit. The cost of the repair must also be weighed in. If you don't want to put $100 into it I don't think most shops these days will want to open it up. Dual cassette deck are notorious for failure due to cheap design. Look around at all the problems. I have been fixing units for 40 years and even at Sony and Sony authorized.
I can look at it at Skywave Tape Deck Repair in Chicago area if you want. Google it.

it sounds like your tape heads are worn they will strip your cassettes every time and give you very poor sound reproduction it can be repaired but costly to be honest you would be better off with a new deck and it will be cheaper all round.

Wheels on the tape deck don't turn on either side, forward or reverse on Sony dual cassette tape deck


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

Tape decks quit working (turning)


There are a couple of belts inside this unit that most likely need to be replaced. Unfortunately this is not the easiest unit in terms of access. I would not suggest an attempt to replace the belts yourself if you have no experience with that sort of thing. The belts should not cost more than $10 total. Check in your area for a service shop that handles audio gear. The total repair cost for this should not exceed $75.

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.

My Sony dual tape deck does not record in stereo anymore.


Oxide deposits on heads can restrict audio transfer to tape. You may need to do a deep cleaning of record head. Depending on how much deposits are on heads may need no more than alchohol and Q-tip. Be sure to clean erase head and drive roller. Afterwards, try recording, then use headphones in jack on recorder to check for recording on both channels. If this works, problem is not in rest of equipment set up. If you still need help, email me
