I have a multitrack cassette recorder MCR-4 made by AMR. In fast foward or rewind it only runs for a few secounds and stops. It does this each time you press the direction button. The tape does stay tightly wound and works fine in play or record. Thanks John

Hi the most common problem i have found here is that although the tapes look OK, they are very tight in case to go forward/back. Banging on the side of the cassette fairly hard on a flat surface a few times, both sides, quite often get rids of it. If that doesnt work, then will need a service on machine. Also try a new cassette..

Best of luck

I have a Tascam 488 mk II that will rewind and fast forward, but will not Play or record. Does anyone know a solution to fix this problem?


Check too make sure that the tabs on the cassette itself are there if they are gone place a piece of tape over them, then try recording again. It may be a belt issue open the unit and see if all the belts are present cassettes usually have 2 or 3 separate belts one controlling the fast forward and rewind and another for record and play more than likely this is the issue, If so belts for these units are obsolete try searching science and surplus magazine catalog they carry a variety of large rubber band / belts you may get lucky and find one there good luck I hope this helps you

What is the reason the tape won't play on sa-ak95


It may be the tape(s) themselves. Pre-recorded cassette tapes are usually no problem for most players, but many user-recorded tapes were of the C90 or C120 variety. These cassettes use much thinner tape in order to get the recording time. This can cause the tape, after many starts and stops and partial fast-forwards and rewinds to get tight on the reels. This will cause the tape sensor to think that the tape is at the end of the reel when it is not. Sometimes rewinding from end-to-end will help, but not always,

Video cassette player/recorder LGRC 689D wont rewind properly


The problem is in the idler assembly inside the machine, some use rubber that dry out and crack, or there is a spring loaded double clutch wheels that get weak over time. In order to fix this the idler assembly must be replaced.

The dictaphone wont rewind or fast forward and makes a bleeping noise


Hi,
Does the tape move when you press rewind or fast forward.
If the tape moves for a few seconds then bleeps it sound like a sensor problem.
If it only bleeps when the rewind and fast forward are pressed and the play is ok it sounds like the actuator motor is faulty,this motor enables the rewind and fast forward.
Hope this helps.

Yamaha K-720 cassette deck will not play tape--immediately stops on auto-stop (or, perhaps, auto-reverse.) Fast-foward and fast-rewind are okay. Had this same problem repaired in the 1980s. How do I...


your problem is the flat belt that drives the 2 capstans. I asked you to check switches but remembered afterwards there is a different motor for fast forward reverse. When the machine is powered on, the capstan motor runs all the time. I bet the 2 capstans are not turning. You can see this if you slide up (gently) the cassette tinted cover. You need a new belt. If you are handy, you can do it yourself (about 2 hours) but it is tricky as you have to remove the complete cassette mechanism and then partially dismantle it to put on the new belt. If you need help I can probably guide you a bit. I just did it a few months ago. The belt size is 9.6 inches. One part number is FBM9.6 or you can try Yamaha service.

Erasing recorded tapes


While holding the 'Erase' button down, press the 'Rewind' or "Fast Forward' button. It will erase the tape while it rewinds or fast forwards.

Cassettes not rewinding


The heads could also just need a good cleaning, either professionally or using a head cleaner dv tape. It's important to remember to always use the same manufacturer dv tape all the time. Evidently, Sony and Panasonic do not mix well, and the lubricants from those two tapes combined will gum up the works. If you use Sony dv's, always use a Sony head cleaner and vice versa. Cold can also cause those lubricants to gum up. Sometimes simply fast forwarding will loosen things up.
