I don't think Marrs will have something like that but Consolidated will. You will need to take them off measure how tight they were and order slightly smaller belts about 5% and install those.

Take out the tape and press play, do the wheels move? if not the motor has burnt out, the tapes may have been sticky. Hold a tape and wind the wheels with your finger, are they difficult to move?

I would have thought that it should go from the amp to the tuner,then the tape deck and finally the CD deck.

I'm suspecting that your tuner is faulty and thats whats causing the system to shut down

SONY MHC EX660 HI FI SYSTEM


As simple as cassette tapes are, their mechanisms can be quite complicated. This problem could be caused by more than one thing. The motor could have lost it's speed control circuit, there could be a worn/stretched belt which is slipping and not engaging the pinch roller completely, if it's a mechanical (not solenoid or motorized) mechanism there could be dried out lubricant preventing the mechanism from operating properly thus not allowing the pinch roller to engage fully with the capstan.

In looking up that model online I see that it's a motorized mechanism which can be quite complicated to work on. I'm not trying to discourage you but the information needed to repair such a unit is not easily imparted through writing. The one thing you could do is open it up and look for broken or slipping belts. Often times they simply become loose (as the rubber ages) and fall off. Other than that you may have to seek out a repair shop for an estimate.
