Question about Audio Players & Recorders
What is the make and model of the unit ? so little info. but my best guess is the motor, or belt. best probibility is the drive belt is shared by both decks therefore the tape decks woun't engage or move the tape along the tape path. look for broken belt inside or a belt that is slipping. the model # would be helpful to find the part # you need or for that matter the size of the belt ( to order PRB belt equiv.)

Most tape problems would be mechanical in nature. I am venturing a guess that the belt(s) are cut. If your brand/model uses two (2) separate motors, then either both belts are cut (unlikely) or the regulator circuitry powering these motor(s) are defective. In some instances, the logic circuitry (especially those with dubbing features) maybe at fault.
Corrective procedures would entail opening the unit for a look and see. This of course would require that you be familiar with electronics circuitry & mechanical components, use of a DVM and possibly even soldering. Should you be uncomfortable going this route, perhaps it will be to your advantage to seek the services of a qualified professional.
Incidentally, should the downtime and cost of repair be no longer economically reasonable, then perhaps purchase of a new unit might have to be considered.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
