Kenwood KX-W6080 dual stereo cassette tape deck

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.

Kenwood kx-w6050 dual cassette deck. play, rewind n forward got problems? Whats seem the problem to be?


It needs servicing by a Technician- often times say it only needs belt but you can replace belts and still have the same problem. The dried lub has to be removed and new fresh non- degrading grease needs to go in and then it will work. Dual cassette decks are usually not worth the $200 it will take to work on two mechanisms. You might find a $10/Hr technician but I doubt it.

Kenwood KX-79 CW dual cassette hook up?


Just connect the deck via tape 1 the out of the deck going to the in of the amp. While the out of the amp goes to the in of the deck.


The tape deck itself will automatically choose the player that plays the cassette. One will play the other will be on pause (if you press both play buttons) till the tape stops then the other will play. For recording from tape to tape one deck will be the copy and the other the copier. There should be a dubbing button which you press to record tape to tape. Some models have a high speed dub also. For recording from the amp unless both decks have record buttons you will only be able to record with one deck. Make certain the dub button is not set.

Looking for schematic for Kenwood KX-55 stereo cassette tape deck


These dual cassette deck are rarely worth he effort to put repair time into. I checked Hi Fi Engine and they did not have anything. Is it worth a $100 repair bill? if not then look for a good solid single deck.

I have a kx-w4050 dual kenwood tape deck niether side will play hear click and counter moves one then another click. Is there a way to fix this?


Yes, the belts need to be check and idlers or whatever drive mechanism that is used in that system. Dual deck units are among the most unreliable units there are and a reason I tell people for the last 30 years not to buy those things. Almost most of the time they are not worth fixing due to their poor performance at the end. These are facts not just opinion.

On Kenwood CT 2050, tape speed varies near end of reel and stops prior to end of reel


Many cassette units have trouble handling 120 min tapes. You seem to have taken care of some of the problem areas but in my experience I would suspect the belts have stretched or aged. If this an older deck, the motor may be weakening. It can be the source of the problems you describe
