The black rubber bank is the belt that drives your motor to turn the capstan to eventtually turn the cassette. Now check if the motor is turning the capstan, the larger wheel over which you had wound up the belt. If not check if any connections have been detached when you did the belt change. Within the mechansim there is a small spring leaf switch that activates the motor and the circuits. so check this out or if you can use a multimeter to trace the voltage to the motor and circuit. If this was working prior to your work then look carefully for a careless lapse. I hope you must have wound the belt in the right direction. Helpful? Good day

Microcassette won't play but does rewind and fast forward


I have the 3 of these units at my office with the exact same problem. Turns out, with a little tinkering there is a simple fix.

Open up the unit (by unscrewing the two screws underneath) and look for a brass disk with a black rubber band around it that connects to a small tip. The rubber band should be either stretched, broken, or even melted. This is the problem. Over time the rubber band deteriorates which causes the unit to not play a tape (rewind and fast forward operate differently).

Replace the deteriorated rubber band with a new one similar in thickness and size. That should work like a charm. Be careful if the original rubber band has melted. It is tar-like and will be difficult to remove.

Hope this helps.

sounds to me like your tape belt in the other motor has broke ,the drive for the tape deck has a rubber band putting it crudely and these belts are a special rubber ,it should be a easy repair but make sure you get the right size rubber band but they must be made for a tape deck and not one from office draw

Sounds like the pinch roller isn't engaging. The pinch roller is a black rubber wheel that presses against a silver post (capstan) the tape is held between them. With the door open and no tape press play. The roller and capstan should touch. If it recently ate a tape there could be some tape on the capstan that also will cause it to run fast.

My VHS tape is also stuck--tapping didn't help


does ur vcr have a idler wheel or gears (between both spindles?) if its an idler wheel, with rubber band it commonly can go bad. their a pain. unfortunately there may not be a replacemant part. if nopt, inspect the belt for cracks or glazing. it needs friction to spin the spindle to take up the tape being played. or if ejecting, to wind the tape back in the cassete. take off the cover of vcr and watch. if the right side wheel of tape is not turning while playing, theres ur problem. the tape is instead floating every whichway. another possibility could be a belt on the right spindle. if any bands need replacing, use an ordinary rubber band ,. should work just as good
