Unplug the power cable from the wall for 10 seconds and try again, this will reset the tape transport microcomputer and should help. If the problem is still occuring then the microcomputer or transport might might be faulty, you could open the unit and make sure any belt, gears, and other mechanisms look in place.

    It would seem as if the machine thinks it is at the end of the tape and stops. It is probably binding on something. You didn't say if it was happening to both decks or just on one side. Also knowing if it will FF or RW would be useful too. Thanks.

Have you check and make sure that the belts are working well?
Is the pinch roller working (spinning)?
A worn out belt will make the mechanism not to operate properly resulting in shutdown to avoid damage to the tapes.

I have a onkyo cassette tape deck ta 2600,when you push play on the cassette,it would play the tape for half of a second and stop


Sounds like the cassette tape itself is too tight to play, try fast forwarding or rewinding the tape in the deck all the way to the end of tape several times before trying to play. This may solve the problem

My cassette deck Onkyo model Ta 2060 is working slowly


HELLO

By the fault you describe this sounds very much like a belt problem. Take the case off the deck and check the belt(s). Some decks can use more than one belt and you need to look at their condition.

Are they too slack around pulleys maybe? Belts don't last forever and I'm not too sure of the age of your deck. But personally, I would change them all.

Make sure the tape path is clean as well, clean heads, pinch roller and capstan.

Cassette tape spins fast


Hi Chris..

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

Tape deck won't play.


Sounds like the belt that drives the capstan is too slack or decomposed, The capstan(s) which are connected to a geared flywheel, also drives the transport mechanism. There can also be tarnish on the sensor leaf switches, preventing contact. You might try to repair it yourself but, it is not an easy or simple job
