SOURCE: tape deck is broke sounddesign model 5959

If the motor is running but the belts are not, then they are probably shot. You can buy belts by size or buy a belt kit at MCM Electronics.

If the motor is not running it could be 2 things: 1. A bad motor or voltage to the motor.... 2. A bind. I've seen the grease on the capstan bushing get old enough to turn into a very hard tar. So check the motor and capstan for freedom of movement.

Hope that helps you get it working...

SOURCE: belt replacement in a sony tc-wr645s tape deck

I have just spent half a day trying to replace the drive belts in my sony twin deck unit , in the end it still didnt work as the the old rubber belt did some damage to the unit , anyway shops like **** smith or tandy stock the drive belts , take the front of the unit away from the main case there will be a plastic casing that surrounds the belts there are at least two belts, there should only be two small screws undo these and move the plastic unit forward on the plastic mounting brackets then you will see the metal wheel and the plastic wheel that you fit the belt around , its a bit fiddly but i can do it in my sleep now even though the motor died it was a good experience

SOURCE: The capstan drive roller on my tape deck fell

You need to locate the supplier of pinch rollers that will fit your tape deck. If that fails, you have a useless piece of gear. If the unit is of decent quality, you should be able to locate a supplier. You didn't include the make or model, so good luck.

Where can I get replacement belts?

They are hard to find but try the MCM Electronics catalog. You will need to know the dimensions of the belt (i.e. width, length...).

Good Luck !

Pioneer CT-W350R Double Cassette Deck will not playback.

Might need belts and a good cleaning.Rotation sensor not detecting reel table rotation. It is doing what it is suppose to do when at the end of the tape but you tape may not be at the end.

Pioneer Cassette Deck Repair

Anything that eats tapes means the take-up torque is low of stopping due to bad belts or a bad Idler system or even cracked tires. The transport have to be taken out and those parts replaced and then it will work again.

Casette deck drive belts broken

If they are just worn then you just need to look where they go. Take a photo or draw it! If they are broken and not clear how they attached then it will be hard. You might need the service manual if that is the case.
