Broken cassette deck

My dual cassette deck is broken. One deck would not open and I had to force it open. (luckily, did not break it). I have kept both decks open since then. Now whenever I turn on the unit and use anything else, like the cd chamber, it makes a noise like the cassette is trying to realign itself. Ca-chunk, ca-chunk ca-chunk, etc. Is this worth fixing and does anybody work on stereo equipment anymore?

How do I get fast forward & rewinds to work on my Teac W450-R dual cassette deck..?


Check the belts, inside the unit you should see a rubber belt which is what pulls the tape fast forward or rewind. Some belts with time get loose and slip, they can also break and fall off which will not let you fast forward or rewind.
Open your cassette player and look where the plastic pulleys are located and check for the belts, they might not be broken at all but very loose and slip on the plastic pulley.

There is either a burned out transformer or more likely a broken solder joint or defective power supply part in the unit- it needs professional work.

Sony TC-138SD cassette deck starts to play then stops after 3 secs. Same when trying to rewind/fast forward


It sounds like the belt is slipping or broken which monitors the speed of the tape movement. When you play or rewind the tape, it thinks the tape has reached the end of play and shuts off. You can try a different tape to make sure the tape does not have too much tension on it. If the second tape has the same result you will need to remove the top cover of the deck to inspect the tape drive mechanism. Make sure the belts and pulleys are clean and replace any belts which have glazing or cracks. If the belt is broken you will need to replace it with a compatible belt of the same length and width.

My record button won't go down. How can I fix it?


This is normal if the cassette tape has a broken tab. Try a different cassette or inspect the cassette to ensure that the write protect tab is not removed. where to look? On the cassette opposite side to where the tape is there are two possible places, each on the side of the cassette case. The broken tab is a feature that prevents accidental recording over an existing program. It also stops the record button from being pushed. The tab is a plastic part that is easy to break with a pen tip.

Sony Dual-Deck Cassette Player/Recorder, doors won't close


Are both sides not staying shut? If it's only one side, look to see if the latch is broken. You should see an arm move when you press down the eject button - while the door is open, press the eject button and see where the arm moves. You should see a hook that catches the door and keeps it closed. It could be broken, or just jammed. Look at the other side of the deck and see it it looks like it's working the same. Unjam the latch arm if it's stuck, or replace it if it's broken.

Teac A-21 Stereo Cassette Tape Deck turns un, but won't play cassette tapes...


very likely that the drive belt has broken. I have fixed a TEAC myself using a large O-Ring from a hardware store (I know I was lucky to find a very close match). Open the unit and find the broken belt and take it to a hardware store to "size up" a replacement. Use the opportunity to oil the gear shafts and clean the rubber pinch roller.
