Question about Tape Decks
Will not work/play tape
No play but fast forward and reverse work ok--yes it is the drive belt. I disassembled the unit to find that the belt is actually sticky and stuck to both weighted flywheels, the drive motor pulley and managed to stick to itself. The drive motor is warm from trying to turn. Now, anyone know where to find the belt??

This unit may have a tape tension sensor. If that sensor isn't working properly, the mechanism always thinks the tape has reached the end during play/record. Sitting unused could allow some grease on the sensor mechanism to harden which would disable it.
The sensor probably isn't used during FF/REW.
