Question about Tape Decks

2 Answers

Denon Dual Cassette Deck DRW-660 will not eject either tape. I put a tape in right side, played a bit, stopped, will not eject. I put another tape in left side, closed, cannot eject. Cannot eject either. Turned off, turned on, tried every button combination. It acts as if it is playing, which no deck lets you eject when playing. But tapes are stopped. It acts if they are both in dubbing mode or something. The "carriage" with the two rollers and play/recording heads will not lower away from the cassette tape on either side to allow the eject latch to release.

Some dual decks use a common drive belt. It may have become too slack (due to age) to drive mechanism. I am sure its time to change all belts in both decks. This will solve the problem

What you have to do is you have to get the cassette door to slide up the track its on,you'll have to pry the top of the door out by quarter ends with the credit card or something because you're the door up off the track .with the cassette door now removed you now have access to the tape head ,press down on the head with a credit card,or something it will free the tape ,now you can remove your cassette, now you can replace your belts.

The mechanism maybe out of alignment. Technicians and a service manual is how this gets fixed. The new belts are put in an the mechanism is position to the stop mode for the eject to work.

Pioneer CT-W208r won't eject tape.


These dual cassette decks were throw away units in most cases. The belt inside and the grease in the cam mechanism is in bad shape and the deck can not cycle through the steps it need to so as to reach stop. Only stop mode will allow the door block to release. The tape can safely be extracted by a Technician. The deck need work. Dual cassette decks are not always worn the repair cost.

Playback options


If I were you I would get that side repaired for the following reasons 1) the wear on the record head is the same on the B whether you record or play 2) the gap is a compromise if it is a record/play head and for play back only the quality is better albeit only seen on instruments . 3) Cassette machines will be very dear and scarce as the factories appeared to have stopped making them. If you have the quantity as I have then if your record side's head is more of value as you cannot record on the head 4) Is your recording side a "3 head " unit giving you "off the tape" recording capability.5) You loose the ability to do trick recording by adding voice with music
This is the reasons for the time being If it is the unit in your pic then it was a very expensive unit

How do I dub casette to casette? I lost the manual.


There should be a DUB button. After you push the DUB button, you will have another button that will allow you to select Dub form 1-2 or 2-1. If not there will only be one deck that will play while the other records and plays. Put the tape to be coppied in the play deck and the blank tape in the record deck push record and it should work.

Denon DRW-585 dual-cassette deck makes clicking sound


There is an outside chance your tape cassett has a static charge. Tape in plastic case of cassette can build up significant electrical static which can partially discharge as tape is run. It can sound like random thumps, ticks, pops ect. Wrap cassette in a damp (not dripping wet) cloth, for several hours, then try again. This can also happen to the reels and drive rollers of the deck
