Question about Sony MHC-RXD3 CD Shelf System
Open the cassette deck and use a pen to push down the heads. After this it probably works better to avoid using cassettes in this machine.

Have you checked the rubber/elastic bands that turn the capstans in the cassette player. If they are loose they do not provide the proper tension and the player stops working properly.

I have the same problem with my RXD3, and the cdshelf doesn't work either.
If you want that clicking sound to stop you can push down the heads in the casettdeck of the stereo. That makes the sound stops, but if you push down a casett/tape in the deck, the casett will catch up and probably get damaged because the clicking sound starts again and the tape will not get out of the deck. Though you have to unplug the system and then pull out the casett, but look out, the tape/casett can get hurt.
BTW, someone who knows who i can get my cd-shelf works again? I just hear a ticking sound 3 times when the laser gets up and down 3 times looking for a cd in the shelf... //David

Without physically looking at the cassette deck myself, I cannot be 100% sure the tape is wrapped around the pinch roller and capstan. The capstan is the chrome rod which the rubber pinch roller pushes to regulate the speed of the tape moving across the head. However it is approximately a 90% chance the take up reel for the tape stopped working from a bad tape or a loose belt which drives the tape take up reel. The clicking sounds like it could be the auto reverse solenoid because it thinks the tape has reached the end of play. The fun part is to remove the tape which you may have to disassemble the front panel if you cannot gain access to the tape from the top or bottom. You will need to cut the tape and remove it from the capstan and pinch roller to open the cassette door. Sometimes you can remove the capstan to free the tape. Once you have cleaned all the tape out of the unit make sure the belt for the take-up is good. If it is glazed, cracked, loose or broken order a belt. Clean all the pulleys and capstan and replace the belt. Your unit should be functional after the above procedure.
