Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

Aiwa z-1800, cassette deck problems, clicking and clonking, not playing and no auto reverse, has any one fixed one of these or is a replacement deck available/worth it, as I see from this site that all aiwa systems suffer from cassette deck problems. I've got the doors to open correctly and got it working on one drive but one way only. I could attach a seperate unit I suppose. Any suggestions ?

The auto reverse is a two part system, the heads are moved and the motors change direction. Slipping belts, broken gears, dirt in the gears can all cause this type of symptom. These are decent units and I would invest in a general overhaul to bring it back to factory spec. I have done a number of these in the past and would recommend the overhaul. Expect $10-$20 in rubber parts plus the local labor rate.

Cassette deck stops immediately after pressing play


It is likely that the rubber drive belts have deteriorated and will have to be replaced to restore operation.

I inherited this dual-deck amplifier from an uncle who has passed on. Unfortunately there is no manual with it anymore. The buttons on the tape decks don't depress except for the stop which immediately...


Hello
It's hard to provide advice without knowing make / model number. Many manufacturers have back issues of owners manuals on their websites - if not a Google search will often trawl one up
Lots of manufacturers used to put 'soft touch' buttons on cassette players - they don't actually push in (just wobble a bit) but work nonetheless. From your description it sounds like the drive belt has broken - alternatively it could be some worn cogs in the motor system, which might explain the clicking sound. Many years ago I had an AIWA tape deck that made a loud clicking when the tape counter got to 9999. Pressing the counter reset used to clear it.
You should be able to connect a CD or DVD player to it using the auxiliary sockets on the rear panel (assuming it has some). Any tape/ aux inputs should be the right impedance to work okay but a phono (record player) socket is unlikely to match. There will normally be a row of buttons (or perhaps a rotary dial) on the front to select input source.

Don't do either of those things. Just hit one of the DUB START buttons (NORMAL OR HIGH) Located right under the tape counter. The deck does the rest.
