Question about Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders
Six tape changer, loads even with out a tape. Trys to rewind, is jammed.? Nothing works.
There are sensors in the unit that are false triggering and some mechanical parts that require alignment. It can take two or three hours to put it back right if you are not familiar with that transport.
This is why I tell people to stay away from changers and auto reverse units as sooner or later they will be a real problem for someone to fix.

once you see the mechanism the flywheel is the largest 'dull' silver colered disc you can see. somtimes a cassette mechanism can be helped along by moving this disc with your index finger.
if it recovers, you have bought a little time but the belts must be replaced. You will need a pro to replace the belts or a really mechanically inclined friend.turntableneedles.com has over 450 belt sizes but they show no listing for your model as of yet. so you would have to provide belt length info to get the right belt sizes.

I don't remember ever working on this model, but it's probably like most others and has rubber belts to drive the supply and take-up spindles. There's also a rubber pinch roller that presses the tape against the capstan shaft, which moves the tape. Those rubber parts by now are long due for replacement. Since the tape isn't moving properly, the auto-stop function is kicking in.
Replacement parts are available, but in many machines it's hard to replace them. Some require extensive disassembly to get at the pulleys. So it's essentially a minor repair, but may be major labor. My only suggestion is that if you want to keep this deck, look for a service shop that works on this kind of equipment and see if they can give you an estimate. You might also search the Internet for a service manual, which would show belt routing and assembly details. Many manuals are available free at low cost from several sites. If you're mechanically inclined, with the proper information you could probably replace the parts yourself.
Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

I have advised people before that replacing belts is not the only answer and sometimes people that are not experienced can upset some part of the deck without knowing it. We don't yet know the model or brand of the unit and from the description this kind of points to a Piano key or lever key type deck. I could also be a cam system deck. This complaint of buttons not staying down would not apply to a tack switch or solenoid type transport.
Like Jerry says a visit to a good Tech is the answer. I have been doing tape decks for 40 years and have worked at Sony and Teac service shops. If you need my help let me know. I am near Chicago.
