RCA Boom Box, Cassette Player works improperly

When a cassette is being played it becomes entangled in the machine. I have to stop the machine, and pull cassette out. Only one side of the cassette player is turning. Is there a remedy to fix?

Thanks.......DT

This sounds like a dirty or sticky pinch roller - use a commercial cassette head cleaner - or ear but with a alcohol cleaner -

If the capston is not rolling the cassette forward this my be due to a broken belt - or may have just jumped off - power down the product and disconnet from the mains - then open it up - normaly the front come away undo the mounting screws from around the cassette mechanism normaly around 4 and carefuly look at the back there should normaly be 2 rubber band one to the capston and 1 to the pich roller the belt that may be broken is the smaller of the too. most cassette deck use the same size belt

Rhe repair work depends on the dianosis. Sometimes you simply can't det parts for old CD players.
So, if you know about CD repair, start by dismounting your playes and then you'll know how to repair it.

Cassette gets entangled, and does not play well


Cassette tape machines will occasional require maintenance after a certain period of usage. First open the cassette door and remove the tape and any broken tape remaining inside. Some models allow you to remove the cassette door allowing you to have better access to clean the unit. Next you will need to clean the capstan with alcohol and a Q-tip. The capstan is the metal post which the rubber wheel (pinch roller) pushes against to drive the tape across the tape head. Basically clean all the shiny metal parts including the tape head. Some of the tape residue may be difficult to clean, I use Tricloroetilene which has been regulated by the government, but you may try a product called Goof Off to clean the difficult parts, but it could eat the plastic and rubber parts so be careful. Next use a rubber cleaner on the pinch roller so you do not dry the rubber out, or it will become useless. The other problem is the cassette may be driven by a motor and belts. The belts may need to be replaced and the pulleys cleaned. For this you will need to disassemble the unit to access the belts but the cleaning of the pinch roller and capstan may fix your problem, if not you need to open it up to replace the main belt.

No you can not go from the cassette to cd on the unit. You can go from cd to cassette though. The unit is not a cd recorder.

I need information on how to operate a tape in my machine. I can insert the tape, and push the button to start it playing, but the tape does not play. Which of the 6 buttons will get the tape to play?


My solution was to get my son to e-mail me the list of instructions that I couldn't find with my machine. The instructions, although vague, were very helpful!
