Re: Problem with deck B on Pioneer CT-W205R

Better tape decks, like Pioneer, may use a different mechanism for record/play than FF & REW. So it sounds like a belt or mechanical link for the REC/PLAY has failed.

CT-W103 play back is to fast

You may have some broken tape wrapped around the capstan. The capstan is the small silver post that rotates when the tape is playing. A rubber roller presses the tape against the capstan. This silver post needs to be just that - silver. If it has any brown tape or goop on it, clean off the tape or goop with a small knife. Then follow up with nail polish remover [acetone]. Don't use alcohol because that will harden the rubber roller over time.

Why one tape at deck A won"t come out. it stock inside unit

There are lots of causes to this. For example the mechanism has jammed. The tape has become entangled in the capstan or elsewhere. Plastic damage causing the mechanism to not move back to the eject position. Some decks have a powered eject that is faulty. Broken spring, or one that has fell off.

Pioneer CT-W208r won't eject tape.

These dual cassette decks were throw away units in most cases. The belt inside and the grease in the cam mechanism is in bad shape and the deck can not cycle through the steps it need to so as to reach stop. Only stop mode will allow the door block to release. The tape can safely be extracted by a Technician. The deck need work. Dual cassette decks are not always worn the repair cost.

Deck plays forward, fast forward and fast reverse O.K., but does not play backwards.

I don't have any quick answers as this is a newer deck than when I worked for the company- I would have to see the deck to determine the fault. Do you have the continuous reverse switch on -maybe that is it.

Faulty Pioneer CT-W450R

Check to see if their is any voltage going to the motors. If not look at the power supply. Electrolytic Capacitors dry up when not being used and can cause faults like that.

Faulty CT-W450R

The rubber belts inside the unit have gotten stiff and slippery. All belts should be replaced. That will resolve the problem.

Dual Cassette Deck won't stop or auto-reverse

There is a tape tension sensor which, it appears, isn't working. Check to see if the linkage to this sensor may have been misaligned while you were replacing the belts. Also check to see that the sensor isn't binding or sticking.
