Question about Audio Players & Recorders
When cassette is inserted in either side, deck runs fast (about fast dub speed) but no audio is heard. Can't make it run normal speed. Won't play or record. FF and REW run at their normal really fast speed.
No obvious damage to unit. I have owned it since new.
Sometimes this is due to the tape not being pinched between the capstan and the rubber roller.
Make sure there is no slack in the tape when you put it in the deck. See if you can observe the tape going down over the capstan on the correct side.
If this isn't the problem, then the mechanism that engages the capstan roller may not to be working. In most cases, the rubber roller is mounted on the same mechanism that moves the record-play head against the tape. If this mechanism isn't moving, that would cause the problems you describe.
