Question about Tape Decks

1 Answer

Parts search I'm looking for a tiny belt that drives the "play" portion of my old (ancient!) Yamaha single casette tape deck. It measures 3.5" in length  when squeezed together and laid out.

Stop Paying .. ????

if the take up side gets stuck it could feed excess tape and stop the mechanism. Look to see if both reels are turning when you push play. Remove cassette door for a better view if possible.

Make sure your tapes have NO slack in them. Fast forward and rewind one cassette all the way, then try again looking to see if both sides are turning. If not, you may have a belt that is old, stretched and slipping or it's split apart or just fallen off

Need to buy belts

Most belts are universal. You only need to measure the diameter of the belt in mm and search Google for cassette drive belt xx mm. Generally you don't need to get the measurement spot on. A 52mm belt for example could be replaced by a 50mm or a 55mm.

I am looking for drive belts for Sony Model TC-WR801ES stereo casette deck

All you need to do is measure the diameter of each belt in MM. Then put "Cassette drive belt ??mm" into Google and you should find a supplier. Belts are not generally specific to any maker. Also you don't need to be precise on the MM. If you are removing them to measure, make a note of how they fit first.

Sony tc-wr535 won't eject. Tape stuck. Won't play cassette on either deck A or B .makes noises but won't FF or play, gets stuck and wont eject. Will belt conditioner work? What do I use?

The problem, according to messages on your site, is that the belts are old and have stretched. There is a great step by step tutorial on with pictures and all. Parts are not too hard to find on search engine. Looks like less than $25 to fix.

How do I dub casette to casette? I lost the manual.

There should be a DUB button. After you push the DUB button, you will have another button that will allow you to select Dub form 1-2 or 2-1. If not there will only be one deck that will play while the other records and plays. Put the tape to be coppied in the play deck and the blank tape in the record deck push record and it should work.

I have a sony shelf system with combination cd and cassette - bel

Sorry, we have no belt listing for your specific model, but we do likely have what you need........

If you still have the old belt intact:
> Lay it out flat on the table
> Pinch it at both ends & straighten the belt but don't stretch it.
> Measure the length & then double it and choose or we will recommend
a size about 3-5% smaller.

Old belt too far gone to measure:
> Just use a piece of string and thread it temporarily in place of where the belt goes.
> Then measure the length of the string and Email us the exact length (inches). Along with your EXACT model number.
If your belt has a round or square cross section, please give us the thickness as well. We can assist
you in choosing a belt usually 3-5% smaller than the length you measured.
