Question about Teac R-H300 Dual Cassette Deck
The function buttons stopped working suddenly. The drawer opens and closes and the counter reset, reverse mode, dolby all work but the forward & reverse play and record & stop buttons are not working.
I checked all the connections and they still seem ok.
This product is discontinued so I can't replace it and nothing wrong with the amplifier, tuner or CD player.
Am quite upset as use it a lot. I look forward to hearing from you.
If the cassette is opening and closing, then the problem is likely mechanic.
As start disconnect the power cord for five minutes to reset the unit, this may not fix the problem.
If the unit does not reset, then the problem is mechanic, usually caused by dirt or foreign objects (eg.tape) stuck in the cassette player gears or by a broken part in the player unit.
To fix the problem the unit must be taken apart, inspected, cleaned, and if there is a broken or missing mechanic part, fixed.

Tips for a great answer:
Without physically looking at the cassette deck myself, I cannot be 100% sure the tape is wrapped around the pinch roller and capstan. The capstan is the chrome rod which the rubber pinch roller pushes to regulate the speed of the tape moving across the head. However it is approximately a 90% chance the take up reel for the tape stopped working from a bad tape or a loose belt which drives the tape take up reel. The clicking sounds like it could be the auto reverse solenoid because it thinks the tape has reached the end of play. The fun part is to remove the tape which you may have to disassemble the front panel if you cannot gain access to the tape from the top or bottom. You will need to cut the tape and remove it from the capstan and pinch roller to open the cassette door. Sometimes you can remove the capstan to free the tape. Once you have cleaned all the tape out of the unit make sure the belt for the take-up is good. If it is glazed, cracked, loose or broken order a belt. Clean all the pulleys and capstan and replace the belt. Your unit should be functional after the above procedure.
