Tape recorders.


Hi,

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.

How to fix a Magnavox record player.


It might just need a new belt or a few drops of oil on the motor bearing.
You will have to open it up and check whether the belt has perished, or stretched.

Rca record player is playing slowed down or sped up


Hi there

this sounds like the belt that drives the turntable itself is slipping you can normally access it by removing the securing clip by the centre spindle and then lift the turntable up and you should be able to see the belt give the belt a good clean with isopropyl alcohol refit and hey presto (if you still get slippage order a replacement belt )

Turntable won't turn


There is usually a cotter pin at the center of the platter around the spindle base. This can be removed with a screw driver using a twisting motion. There is a blades worth of space between the clip and the spindle base. Screw driver should be in vertical position. Sometimes the vinyl slip mat must be removed first. Watch that clip, cause it can go flyin. Once the clip is removed, the turntable should let go easily.

I need the schematic diagram for an antique radio RCA VICTOR model A25 made in Montreal circa 1941


I wasn't able to find information for the A25 specifically, however, there are a LOT of antique RCA Victor (US and Canadian) schematics here:

Do you have any more details about the radio? An alternate model number perhaps?

Please rate this answer if helpful.

I have a 1963 RCA Victor Victrola record player/stereo that the speakers don't work. Where can I find replacement parts?


Hi pab69874

Have you been able to test the speakers to determine that that is the problem? Parts are quite available for vintage gear, you just need to know where to look. If the speaker drivers are faulty, if you can give me the make and model number off the back of the magnet, I can source them for you.

RCA Boom Box, Cassette Player works improperly


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
