Question about Kenwood Audio & Video Receivers
I own a Kenwood KX-W6080 stereo cassette dual tape deck. The left unit stopped working some time ago and the right side stopped working this weekend. I referenced the manual and I found a reset command of pressing the stop key on Deck B while cycling the power on and off. That solved the problem with Deck B but I still have no luck with Deck A. The counter light flashes once in a while on Deck A but when I put a good cassette in the mechanism none of the buttons function, no forward, no reverse, no fast speed in either direction and the pause key doesn't seem to be activated. I've tried pushing that button on and off while trying to play the tape does no good either. Any suggestions?? Dave
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.
