Question about Tape Decks
My recently aquired Sansui cassete deck D-79R worked fine untill today. It has a "rumble" or raspy buzz that can be very easily felt with your hand. It doesen't matter wether it's running a tape or not. Any Ideas? Thank you,
It will have a dry bearing in the transport. Probably the capstan motor or the capstan flywheel. A drop(one) of 3 in 1 oil carefully applied to the bearing(dont get it on any belts or pulley drive surfaces) may help The rear bearing of the motor is harder to get to, but generally not the culprit. If you dont have a small oiler syringe to do this You may have to pull the motor assembly out, or the capstan flywheel retainer plate, and then remove the flywheel completely to do this. Clean the capstan shaft, belts and pulley drive surfaces while you have it pulled down with acetone. Good luck, feel free to follow up here with me if it gets ugly. :)
