Question about Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I took my Pioneer SX-450 Receiver and Pioneer CT-1040W Tape Deck apart to move it. Put it back together. Now can't get a tape to play.

Attached L&R cables to the Input (REC) connectors on Tape Deck (I hadn't changed these) and other ends to L&R connectors on the Receiver (these had been disconnected). Attached L&R cables to the Output (PLAY) connectors on the Tape Deck (I hadn't changed these) and the other ends to the L&R connectors on the Receiver (these had been disconnected). Plugged Tape Deck in the "Switched" plug in on the Receiver. Turned Receiver on, Turned Speaker switch to "A", Turned Function switch to Aux. I get a power on light on the tape deck. But when I hit "Play" button, I get no movement in tape or sound. Tried two different tapes, and tried turning them around. No Luck. Any ideas? Thanks, Dan

After putting a known good tape in the deck, push play, if the tape doesn't move, try rewind and FF. If nothing happens, the deck has a problem. I assume this is a cassette deck. If so, I always try the thrift stores for a new(used) one. There are good bargains there.

Took my Pioneer CT=1040W apart. Main belts for both dual tape decks were melted onto the pulleys. There is also another belt on the B tape deck. Appears to be intact, but can't see where it goes.


The repair of a dual cassette deck is usually not worth it if you are paying a Technician but since you are doing it yourself, there are screws that must come out of the deck to take the transport out. Some of them require you to take the plastic door off. They are not a treat to work on and often even when you are done they have poor performance anyway. Where the belt goes is indicated on the pictorial diagrams of the service manual. Otherwise it is common sense and a little bit of physics. I have probably done 400 by now. Maybe some TV shops will work on it but they are really not real Technicians for tape decks and most times hacks.

Ct-720 tape deck pioneer. only plays backwards and quick. speed adjust pot Works but motor doesn't have power and stops. plays in reverse and the playback rev control won't change play direction.


The tape speed is an indication of another problem. Probably the same as all other mechanisms of this type and that is dried up grease and parts that are not moving as they were designed to.
The deck needs to go to a Technician.

CT-W103 play back is to fast


You may have some broken tape wrapped around the capstan. The capstan is the small silver post that rotates when the tape is playing. A rubber roller presses the tape against the capstan. This silver post needs to be just that - silver. If it has any brown tape or goop on it, clean off the tape or goop with a small knife. Then follow up with nail polish remover [acetone]. Don't use alcohol because that will harden the rubber roller over time.

Pioneer CT-W208r won't eject tape.


These dual cassette decks were throw away units in most cases. The belt inside and the grease in the cam mechanism is in bad shape and the deck can not cycle through the steps it need to so as to reach stop. Only stop mode will allow the door block to release. The tape can safely be extracted by a Technician. The deck need work. Dual cassette decks are not always worn the repair cost.

I have a Pioneer model CT-F2121 want to connect it to my Radio amp. I has two ports at back of Radio which is marked "switched" and "Unswitched" Radio is a Sansui model 210SS multi receiver. I have tried...


The deck if in working condition can be plugged into any AC wall outlet or the two AC outlets on the receiver. This is only for power, The Line outs and line in also have to be plugged into the Tape in and record out on the receiver as well. If the CT-F2121 need repairs that is what needs to be done first. Probably a whole set of belts.

Trying to hook up numark eq2400 to pioneer sx-255r


You have to select any available 'tape loop' .


Receiver Tape Out (Rec) - to INPUT

Receiver Tape In (Play) - from OUTPUT 1 or 2


A tape deck would hang off the back of the EQ using ITS tape loop.

SX-1600 + KD-491F


Appreciate the additional information.

To recap what you need is a receiver that can accommodate:
4 - Pioneer S-DF1-K (15-100W, 8 ohms)
1 - Pioneer PD-F407 25 Disc CD Player
1 - Pioneer CT-300 dual tape deck
1 - Kenwood KD-491F turntable

Possible choices are (keeping in mind that the power output should be less if not equal to 100 watts and a turntable/phono input):
i. Onkyo TX-8522 Stereo Receiver;
ii. Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver;
iii. Sony STR DE695 AV receiver;
iv. Teac AG-790 200 Watt Stereo Receiver;
v. Denon AVR 888 - AV receiver - 7.1 channel.

Some of the above also includes feature(s) to hook up to your video system. Some may even require a fifth speaker (subwoofer).

Incidentally, you can also choose another brand/model even without a turntable/phono input. As initially posted, a turntable/phone to line level pre-amplifier is only required. Here are some examples:
a. XP200 Turntable Preamp - Nano Series;
b. Pyle® Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier;
c. Pro-Ject Phono Box Turntable Preamplifier;
d. Radial J33 RIAA Turntable Preamp Direct Box

Good luck with your project.

Problem with deck B on Pioneer CT-W205R


Better tape decks, like Pioneer, may use a different mechanism for record/play than FF & REW. So it sounds like a belt or mechanical link for the REC/PLAY has failed.
