Question about Onkyo Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

I own an Onkyo TA-2055 Caaette deck. Have had it for years. I need to get some maintenance on it. The sprockets that drive the cassette tape will not rotate but the motor engages. Would it be worth it to have it repaired? It was a great deck.

SOURCE: Tape deck won't play.

Hi...
From being a Pro-tech and working on these and other like them I'd say it's the main belt+ idler wheel that has worn out.
Very challenging job to do..Like knightstar7 said

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.

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

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
