If the tape has ripped from the wheel itself then you can glue it back to the wheel with a good strong glue (I'd recommend araldite), or if the tape has ripped you can use sellotape to fasten the two sections back together.

I believe this cassette is moulded plastic so what you will need to do is carefully break it apart along the central seam to access and repair the tape itself, then use your strong glue to glue it back up after the repair is done. You have to be really careful dong this so as to not get glue inside the tape itself and gum up the mechanism.

Finally make sure you leave it to set properly before you try and play it (refer to the glue packet), for araldite I think its 24 hours. Also if you use glueto stick the tape back to the wheel make sure that is set before you reassemble the cassette or your wheel will get jammed.

Will not rewind or fast forward microcassette tape. Makes a noise like rewinding or FF but then starts beeping. Not a tape issue, tried other tapes.


Nothing like going back in time. Think what you have here is a belt issue. As in the belt has stretched over time and is no longer tight enough to hold when you engage the motor on ff or rew. Repair shop might be able to help or else you might want to consider a new machine which is all digital recording. ie no moving parts inside.

The voice recording fades in some parts


- Possibly the recording head may need cleaning and demagnetizing.
- The tape itself could be damaged or even folded.
- It may be also because one or both backup pads are missing on the microcassette.

There should two pads behind the tape as shown below.
