Most likely cause are bad belts, when you have the play button only partly pushed in the pinch roller is not fully engaged. When you push it in all the way the drag is too much for the worn belts and they are slipping causing the cassette to drag.

My cd/cassette player keeps turning off after a couple minutes


I've got one and if there is too much tension on the tape while it is playing, the machine will stop playing to avoid tearing the tape of the cassette. Its not the cassette but the gears and motors of the player start to wear and age and there isn't anything that I know of to fix it. I will be super sad if that ever happens to mine. I've had it 28 years.

Car Cassette Adapter keeps flipping from one side to another


This is a faulty firmware problem in the player. It may have a faulty internal capacitor that is screwing up the player. You can use a capacitor tester to find faulty capacitor or replace with a cd player

I think you are saying you are using a cassette adapter to play the external iPod/PSP etc. and I presume the cassette plays regular tapes OK. The auto-reverse cassette player thinks the 'tape' is over, so reverses then ejects. You can try putting in a regular tape, change sides then eject. Try the adapter again. Hopefully the adapter will work in 'one' direction.

When I press play, my tape player eats the tape.


that means that the uptake wheel is not turning. typically this is caused by a rubber band that is insde the transport mechanism that connects the motor to the wheel.

if you are comfortable taking the device apart, you will need to find the right band and just pop it on.

I have had this same problem too. I fixed it by taking the tape transport out of it and removing both capstans with their flywheels and oiling the capstans. However this only fixed the problem for a few months. Maybe you need to more a most soild oil since i used just regular motor oil.
