How much warranty you have left on that product. It sounds as if you need to get that replaced. Or You need a new button. something may be broken off inside the machine.

SOURCE: Kenwood Dual Cassette deck KX-97CW runs fast

Sometimes this is due to the tape not being pinched between the capstan and the rubber roller.

Make sure there is no slack in the tape when you put it in the deck. See if you can observe the tape going down over the capstan on the correct side.

If this isn't the problem, then the mechanism that engages the capstan roller may not to be working. In most cases, the rubber roller is mounted on the same mechanism that moves the record-play head against the tape. If this mechanism isn't moving, that would cause the problems you describe.

All three problems could be related to drive belt issues. Either the belts have become stretched-out or have broken.

I would take it back to Radio Shack and demand your money back. I would do some research on sony's website and find the right cleaner for you camera.

Cassette player doesnt play or record, ff or rewind. CD player, AM/FM radio works fine.


Hi.
If you hear a faint whirring sound from the cassette player while performing these functions, the motor is fine, but you require a new drive belt/s that need to be fitted at an electronics shop. If you hear not sound at all, the motor has died (possibly belts too), again it will require and electrinics repair shop visit.
For the sake of repairing it, it maybe cheaper to buy a new one.

Sound only comes out on one side of earphones -- tried 4 different headsets and all the same. Any suggestions?


You are probably connecting a stereo headset and this model only accepts a mono headset. You can get a stereo to mono adapter at Radio Shack for about $3.

I have a JVC (stereo, radio, cassette, recorder) and it's buzzing


If it is only when the tape is running, it could be motor noise.
Worn bearing in the motor or maybe a suppressor has failed, if it has one.

Hi, When i try and record onto the machine it does not run, it sticks, tried new batteries but no difference, machine is about 2 years old, David.


If ther is no drive, even in fast forward or reverse, the the belt may have come off the motor pulley. Otherwise you may have a hair wrapped around the tiny drive cogs under the turntable.

fast forward, reverse the cassette and fast forward again. if the tape is too tight the current sensor will always trip out the motor.
