Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I recently was given a very old REALISTIC (That is the brand name) Model No. 14-778A. I love it and almost everything on it works well, besides some cosmetic damage. My problem is the sad fact that the cassette deck does not seem to work. I press the eject button, and it (the cassette cradle) pops out nice and dandy. I switch to tape input (one of the buttons on the top) so I can play a tape, and I press play. Nothing. Nothing spins or turns like a normal cassette player would. I get the same results with fast forward and rewind. Please, I would really like to get this fixed! And no, I wouldn't mind taking it apart if I have to...
I know exactly what the problem is. I used to have one of these blasters and the tape drive belt has broken. I probably went through 8 belts. (it would usually happen when I pressed Record and Pause at the same time!!!) I would always take mine back to Radio Shack cause they would fix it for free (as an ongoing issue and I've seen lots of similar stories about the belts on this model), but do a little research and you should be able to get one (grab a couple ) and do it yourself. As for the blaster, it is awesome isn't it? KILLER sound. I had given mine to a friend when I bought a monster home stereo back in the day and have regretted that decision for years. Hope this helps!!
