Tape cassette deck - tape speed too fast in reverse mode only

On one of the decks the tape speed in reverse mode from right spool to left is very fast - maybe 4 or 5 times normal speed. This is both in playback and recording modes

In all other respects the machine is fine.

Any ideas please?

Be sure the pinch roller behind the capstan is moving into place like it should. Otherwise, the take-up drive will pull the tape through faster than it should.

There will be either a hole in the top of the motor with a speed adjusting preset. Or there will be one on the printed circuit board. New Motors don't come set up. You have to adjust them for each deck. You will need a small screwdriver to adjust. You will have to figure out by ear when the speed is right.

Will not reverse play on deck 2-just goes very fast on this


This condition, regardless of which way the tape is moving, is caused by the failure of a rubber pinch-roller to trap the tape between capstan and the passive roller.The speed is then caused by the part of the drive driven by a small belt and a clutch that should only keep a small amount of tension on the tape in ensure clean rewinding of the tape after it has passed the head.
Lubricant in part of the transport's moving parts or a dried-out rubber roller may be causing this.If you want to try to clean the pinch roller, don't use alcohol since this can further harden the robber.Use a clean fiber-free cloth or paper towel wetted with a LITTLE naphtha and turn the roller on the wetted area. If you get some dark smudging, the treatment is working.

I can't find the manual to my Technics RS-TR272 Stereo Cassette Deck. How do you tape something on one cassette to another?


Place the tape you want to record into the left deck, Then the blank tape into the right deck. Press play on the left deck and record on the right deck.

It may be opposite depending on which side your recording deck is on.

Which ever deck has record, place blank cassette into that one and the cassette you want to copy into the other deck.

Hope this helps and please rate thanks

Left deck doesn't "play" anymore.


There is a mechanism problem in the Pinch Roller part of the deck.
It needs to be looked at by a Technician to correct.

A 303 cassette deck - the belt has been changed. The feed spool and capstan turn fine. The take up spool does not turn and play stops after 5 sec. Take up spool is fine in fast forward. Help !


This is a case of a failing reel motor. What happens i sthe brushes become aged and wear down and the motor has what they call a dead spot on the Commutator. The motor will work fine at high speeds as the inertia is working for it but when you use a slow speed as in play mode the motor hits the dead spot and stops. You will need a new reel motor in the most likely case- I can service the deck if you want at Skywave Tape Deck Repair Chicago area. I will most likely put a new motor into the deck.

Place the speed on X1 mode to make sure it is off the B mode and it should record.

Kenwood KX-W6080 dual stereo cassette tape deck


I have the same unit which had the same problem. It has to do with dirty contacts on each tape mechanism.

Remove the main cover and look down on each tape mechanism. You will see 4 contacts on each unit. These come in contact with the tape. Remove each unit by removing 4 holding screws.

You will now be able to spray some contact cleaner into the front of the plastic contact cover. I removed the covers on both of the second from the right contacts so that I could clean them with an abrasive. These are the main ones.

Put everything back the way it was and the tape deck should work great.
