The belt drive unit is only ran by a SMALL rubber band. It may be that the actual band is broken or the motor itself is shot. Unplug the stereo from the wall and remove the cover CAREFULLY, look in at the tape drive and check the "RUBBER BAND" first.

Hi my traxdata cd900 recorder has just developed a problem. Ive been using maxell cdr's most were fine but lately:- a) optical failure error occasionally occurs b) will happily record approx 15 mins...


First to confirm if its a transport problem play a CD from track 1 to the last. If it is not getting stuck and smoothly plays till the end -- transport is OK. The same laser unit which reads the disc also writes. But when it writes the laser intensity is several times higher and the unit runs very hot. And old unit will start to misbehave due to the heat. TIME FOR REPLACING THE DRIVE UNIT.

Taperecorder no "foreward" or "backward" run ( and a "start" problem


It will be one of the drive belts , its better to get a repair shop to replace both belts , i have tried replacing belts myself and they are fiddly and time consuming , if you keep playing it the way it is you will damage the motors that turn the belts

Won't power up; push power button on, hear click in back left of unti, get nothing on front display and no output from speakers; as if unit trying to operate


Disconnect the speakers and see what happens. Carefully examine the speaker cables for unwanted connections (shorts).
Take a clue from when the power problem appeared. Something was moved and made the buzz a (probable) dead short.

No subwoofer signal


your out put signal circut bord is shorted out. It happens when there is static feed back from output continuity to an electric overload inside the unit. Then when you have a shorted board then it will eventually go into a protect mode and nothing will work ...just the power light will turn red and blink.

Just a suggestion.....Get rid of it while it has a bad sub output signal. you can get some money out of it.

DEAD LEFT CHANNEL!!


The most common problem is a dirty record<>play switch inside the unit. Try this: Using a blank tape, press and release record/play buttons several times. This can clean the switch a bit. Then play a tape. If it fixes the problem, then you need to take the unit apart and use a plastic safe spray cleaner on the switch (Check at Radio Shack, their tuner cleaner Catalog #: 64-4315 will work fine). Spray it into the switch and then work the switch with the buttons several times.

Hope that helps...

My TEAC A550RX stereo cassette deck will not play tapes. Power is on and the tape drive will not respond to commands when pushing the buttons on the face of the face of the unit. The unit has not been...


If the unit ends up in the middle of a cycle, the front panel will appear to be unusable. With a unit that has been idle for a long time, the belts and motors may be a little sluggish. This unit needs a general overhaul and the belts replaced. This should not be a major expense. Figure about $10 in belts and your ocal labor charge for the repair. If I remember correctly, this unit uses both a flat and square belt.

Kenwood KX-W6080 dual stereo cassette tape deck


I have the same unit which had the same problem. It has to do with dirty contacts on each tape mechanism.

Remove the main cover and look down on each tape mechanism. You will see 4 contacts on each unit. These come in contact with the tape. Remove each unit by removing 4 holding screws.

You will now be able to spray some contact cleaner into the front of the plastic contact cover. I removed the covers on both of the second from the right contacts so that I could clean them with an abrasive. These are the main ones.

Put everything back the way it was and the tape deck should work great.

Tape deck not working


Sounds like a motor problem. Try turning the motor by hand to see if it's bound up.

Its off & it doesnt want to turn on?


I just had the same thing happen with mine. First i blew out the 7 years of collected dust. No change. Checked the fuse. Good. Scrached head. Check. Out of curiosity i pulled the fuse out, and put a small bolt in its place. Powers on right away now. I dont have to sit and play with it for 10-15 min anymore. So, a new fuse should fix it. I will find out tomorrow.
