Sony taperecorder TC-355 will only run in fast forward. when trying to play in any speed tape moder went into fast forward and would not play tape.


If the speed-controlled roller is not closing to pinch the tape when PLAY is selected, the recorder will play in a fast mode. You will need Isopropyl alcohol, contact cleaner, Q-tips a screwdriver needle-nose pliers and a steady hand to clean every moving part in that Reel-To-Reel and then lightly lubricate the moving parts.
While you are in there I would change the belts as well. Or send it to a qualified repair shop and pay $ 125.00 to $ 200.00 for same thing to be done. Take your time, it's just a big puzzle, make sure you video or document everything you remove so it goes back together correctly. Good Luck!

My Atco seems to run way too fast and you just about have run behind it. Is there a way to adjust the speed without affecting the reel speed?


The speed control track on the tape is at the very edge of the tape. If the edge of the tape is wrinkled or wavy, then the recorder is having a hard time reading the tape for the correct playback speed.

Ct-720 tape deck pioneer. only plays backwards and quick. speed adjust pot Works but motor doesn't have power and stops. plays in reverse and the playback rev control won't change play direction.


The tape speed is an indication of another problem. Probably the same as all other mechanisms of this type and that is dried up grease and parts that are not moving as they were designed to.
The deck needs to go to a Technician.

Marantz Cassette Deck Plays Tapes Slightly Too Fast


The speed should be adjustable but the common practice is to use a frequency counter and test tape or test tape and wow and flutter meter. I look at this from a Technician's point of view as I have been fixing units for 45 years so far. Once the motor speed control is found it does not take too long. Sometime it take more time taking the cover off.

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.

Cassette tape spins fast


Hi Chris..

It's not worth repairing. I would find something else in good condition

Kenwood Dual Cassette deck KX-97CW runs fast


Sometimes this is due to the tape not being pinched between the capstan and the rubber roller.

Make sure there is no slack in the tape when you put it in the deck. See if you can observe the tape going down over the capstan on the correct side.

If this isn't the problem, then the mechanism that engages the capstan roller may not to be working. In most cases, the rubber roller is mounted on the same mechanism that moves the record-play head against the tape. If this mechanism isn't moving, that would cause the problems you describe.

Tape cassette deck - tape speed too fast in reverse mode only


Be sure the pinch roller behind the capstan is moving into place like it should. Otherwise, the take-up drive will pull the tape through faster than it should.
