Check for broken or stretched rubber drive belts. Age is as bad an enemy as wear. If it has been sitting for a period of months they go bad faster. Even if you keep it indoors out of the heat, the A/C will dry out the oil the belts and they wil lose their elastisity. There are usuallyonly about 3 or 4 belts in the cassette player at most and they cost less than a dollar each. If you can find the belts, buy extras and keep the extras in a zip lock bag. Parts are harder to find as time goes on and most manufacturers will deliverately quit selling normal wear items like belts after a few years to force you to buy a new product.

Tape spindles do not turn, but motor runs


Assume this is about either cassette or reel-to-reel tape and not DVD.

The symptoms you describe might be a clutch that is refusing to engage but is most commonly a worn or broken or contaminated drive belt.

Dura brand,why is the tape coming out of the cassette when I pay it?


Hi there
This is an answer which is general to all tape cassette decks. I think it probably applies to yours but this may or may not be the case.
The tape is transported past the "read" head by a pinch wheel and spindle that come up into the cassette on either side of the tape. The spindle runs at a very constant speed and with the tape between this and the (rubber) pinch wheel sounds are transferred fro the read head to the electronics for amplification etc. We are not concerned with that here but with what physically happens to the tape after the pinch wheel. Under normal circumstances a belt is driven from the electric motor to the take-up reel of the cassette. This usually runs slightly faster than the spindle/ pinch wheel so that the tape winds cleanly onto the take-up reel. If this belt is loose, has come off entirely or is otherwise not working properly, then the spindle/pinch wheel will continue to feed the tape but it has nowhere to go because it is not being wound onto the take-up reel, except out of the cassette into the tape desk mechanism. In this case it often gets wrapped around the spindle/pinch wheel assembly and gets into a very nasty tangle, causing serious damage to the tape and possible damage to the deck.
Hope this explains your problem.
Cheers

Only one spindle turns on cassette player


It is probably a loose or broken belt. I do not know the unit so this is just a starting point.

Where is the rewind on this cassette player?


Cheap cassette players have no rewind feature. This allows the mechanism to be simpler and cheaper; they just 'pull' the tape forward constantly, without the pinch wheel for "fast" [sic] and with the pinch wheel for "play".

To work out if this is the problem with your cassette player, look inside with no cassette inserted. If one of the spindles is plain, without the "three-pronged" device to engage with the spool, then you have the cheap device with no rewind. Turn the tape over, and fast-forward.

Pulling the lever on the right of the cassette should move the ribbon drive spindle out of the cassette and leave it free to remove, but sometimes the ribbon can become twisted on to the drive spindle and it won't disengage. If that has happened you will have to break open the cassette to free the spindle.

The power is on but the motor will not turn the tape drive. Does anyone know a good repair shop?


Hmm, when you press play, can you feel the motor turning, do the spindles turn on fast forward or rewind? If so you may have one of two problems. First check to see if the cue button is is depressed. If it is jammed, the deck will FF and RR but won't play. If it's not that, but the motor still spins, the motor is no longer making contact with the flywheel. If you have a repair manual, dismantle the deck and check out the motor contact

Could be a worn out belt? The cassette loads it the drive down too much. Hence why it turns with no tape.
