Unit probably needs belts. Over time, belts may become slack or decompose into tar-like compound. In this case, the deck will need to be cleaned and belts replaced. Take to pro/tech

If the controls are not responding (or flash on and off) it's a control motor failure. Look at this link for a guide to the probelm andy’s repairs: cr7 control motor

How do I get fast forward & rewinds to work on my Teac W450-R dual cassette deck..?


Check the belts, inside the unit you should see a rubber belt which is what pulls the tape fast forward or rewind. Some belts with time get loose and slip, they can also break and fall off which will not let you fast forward or rewind.
Open your cassette player and look where the plastic pulleys are located and check for the belts, they might not be broken at all but very loose and slip on the plastic pulley.

I have a Sherwood DS1150 tape Deck. Problem Cant open Cassette Door, tape is inside . Will not rewind or fast forward. Wont play. Any advise


Very likely the tape is wound around the capstan.

You may have to get at it by taking the unit's case off.

If I am right you might have to destroy the cassette unless you are very careful. Or, at least, have to cut the tape so as to unwind it from the capstan.

You could also try to open the door just enough to lift it up and off ... as if you were going to clean the tape heads.

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

NAKAMICHI CASSETTE DECK 1 NOT PLAYING?


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

Sounds like the tape tension sensor is stuck. The sensor is always telling the mechanism that the tape has reached the end.
