Question about Tape Decks
CASSETTE TAPE WILL NOT PLAY & UNABLE TO PLACE TAPE INTO NO 2 DECK
very likely that the drive belt has broken. I have fixed a TEAC myself using a large O-Ring from a hardware store (I know I was lucky to find a very close match). Open the unit and find the broken belt and take it to a hardware store to "size up" a replacement. Use the opportunity to oil the gear shafts and clean the rubber pinch roller.

The cassette mechanism has a large gear that rotates to different
positions for the different modes. On time around is a play -
stop cycle. It is stuck in one position and won't come around to
the stop spot. Need to take the cover off and help it to turn to
get the cassette out. Then figure out if something is wrong
preventing it from turning or if the wheel driving it is the
problem. They are all a little different so this is where your
mechanical apptitude comes in.
By the way, you'll figure out right away they don't intend these things to be fixed.
Hope Ya Fix It.

The deck will need new belts and idler drives cleaned and serviced, and perhaps some idler tyres replaced. You can get a belt kit from these guys. replacing them is not such a difficult job if you have some mechanical aptitude. Just take it slowly, and focus on getting the transport out of the unit.

i have the same deck with same problem..so this is the typical problem for this deck...got it from thrift shop..it was in perfect condition, working excellent but after few days of enjoying it, all of a sudden the same problem arises.... and the motor is abnormally hot..it is way too fast.
when i switch on the power the middle motor will automatically turn on at very high speed...i play around anything i can do hoping something is just stuck up but to no avail..
