Really simple one this. You have a slipping belt. Don't try to use any more tapes in it, you end up chewing them up. I change all my belts in my decks every 2 years due to the extreme heat we have here. Unless you know how to strip the unit and can get hold of the correct belt I'm afraid it's a repair shop job. BMW To give you some idea of price I charge $50 for a complete service, alignment and belt change.

Hi I can probably tell you what is wrong, but there is usually not much you can do except take it to a shop and have the motor replaced. I most cases there is a hole in the back of the cassette capstan drive motor, or on a small circuit board close to the motor where the speed is adjusted at the factory. You could possibly adjust the speed by ear until it sounded right playing a factory recorded tape with a song you know well, but I recommend these adjustments be left to a tech with a frequency counter. Also, these adjustments normally never need to be touched unless replacing a motor, so it is likely something internal has gone wrong with the motor, and it should be replaced under most circumstances. Hope this helps, Good Luck.

All Aiwas are prone to this problem. The doors are a real pain and easily give up the ghost. I have 2, both probmatic in this direction.
I have spoken to others about this problem. Seems no easy fix.
Have you in your case, tried leaving and old tape in the tape part of your unit . The noise you hear, usually starts when tape unit area doors are about to pack a wobbly. Unless under warrenty, proberly,
not worth getting fixed. It seems something gets weak in the activation part and get a mind of its own. Very common after about 3 yrs of ownership. All the best: jamz

it has probably thrown the capstan belt and will require a new belt fitted. the transport relies on capstan rotation to engage play. a separate reel motor operates ff/rew and takeup funtions

Your unit needs a little TLC. Let me address the likely problems/solutions:
1) Tape deck stuck - The most common problem here is that the belt has gotten slippery. This has prevented the mechanism from resetting to a known position and that is what prevents the door from opening. Hopefully when you pried it open, nothing bot broken.
2) Both tape drives run from the same motor and use different belts. The same applies to the second deck as the first. The belts are sliping and need to be replaced.
3) The CD lens is probably dirty and needs to be cleaned. The fact that the CD stops and an attempt is made to play it suggests that the optics are working enough to detect the disc. Clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol and that should resoplve the CD problem.
If you have not opened up these before, I would not suggest you start without someone around who has. There are 3 belts that need to be chagned for the cassette section to work. Plan on $15-$20 for the belts.
