Kenwood KX-79 CW dual cassette hook up?


Just connect the deck via tape 1 the out of the deck going to the in of the amp. While the out of the amp goes to the in of the deck.


The tape deck itself will automatically choose the player that plays the cassette. One will play the other will be on pause (if you press both play buttons) till the tape stops then the other will play. For recording from tape to tape one deck will be the copy and the other the copier. There should be a dubbing button which you press to record tape to tape. Some models have a high speed dub also. For recording from the amp unless both decks have record buttons you will only be able to record with one deck. Make certain the dub button is not set.

Kenwood Stereo Double Cassette Deck KX-W4040 won't power on


The fault could be a transit fault. If it got knocked or fell while being sent to you anything could have happened to it. First check all the fuses both external and inside, then look inside. Look for signs of damage. As with anything second-hand that contains electronic circuit boards, it's best to look at the soldered side of the PC board. If you can see nice clean solder joints, then it won't have been messed with. On the other hand, lots of bad soldering, spells trouble. Perhaps even someone who has messed about with it to get it going, fitting wrong parts etc.

Looking for schematic for Kenwood KX-55 stereo cassette tape deck


These dual cassette deck are rarely worth he effort to put repair time into. I checked Hi Fi Engine and they did not have anything. Is it worth a $100 repair bill? if not then look for a good solid single deck.

I have a kx-w4050 dual kenwood tape deck niether side will play hear click and counter moves one then another click. Is there a way to fix this?


Yes, the belts need to be check and idlers or whatever drive mechanism that is used in that system. Dual deck units are among the most unreliable units there are and a reason I tell people for the last 30 years not to buy those things. Almost most of the time they are not worth fixing due to their poor performance at the end. These are facts not just opinion.

Connect the RCA Outputs of the Tuner to the RCA inputs for Tuner on the amp.
Connect the output of the Tape Deck to the Tape Input on the amp.
Connect the input of the Tape Deck to the Tape Output on the amp.

Select Tuner on the amp to listen to the tuner.

Onkyo TA-2700 - Won't Play Tapes


Open the deck and look for the copper colored leaf switches (above the plastic comb) that get corroded / dirty over the years.. Clean them with deoxide or similar and your are most likely good to go..

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.

A. REAL SPEAKER CONNECTION B. CASSETT RECORDER NOT ENGAGING


A Real Speaker Jacks..
There should be a switch position on your system that you move to allow the sound to come out to standard speaker configuration or to multiple speaker configuration.
This switch may be on the front or rear panel.

Please have alook to see if its there....
Its possible the these Real speaker jacks are not wired to anything inside the amp system, and are there for use on a different model where the selector switch is supplied.

B Cassett Deck..
The clicking is caused by the motor trying to drive the wheels that turn the cassett tape.
It sounds like something is jamming the internal drive mechanism.
The drive belt may have come off or is stretched and is slipping.

Have a good look inside the front slot and you may see one of these items described above happening..

It may have to be serviced at a workshop.

Cheers From YUBEUT.
