Hi davejann

These guys can certainly help you with parts for older Nakamichi decks. They are in the UK, and have most parts for pre 1996 tape decks from the legendary makers. The synthesis chassis had dramas with pinch rollers siezing up from dried grease. I always used to strip and relube, and often replace the pinch roller/tape guide assly. Hit them up, if you have any dramas, get back to me here.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

regards
robotek

I have an rca model GB 11 t cassette tape unit. It needs a pinch roller and a drive belt. Both of them melted in the unit. A dirty mess. No one here can help me. Can you?


The cassette belts are not the problem. They are generally universal. All you need to do is work out roughly the diameter of the belt and search for that online.

The roller is the main problem. They are not universal. Each deck seems to have it's own design for them. Some of them will be fitted into a metal/plastic piece, others will come on their own. I would do a Google image search just on "cassette pinch roller" to see if anything comes up like your model.

Or you can look for the service manual for the part number.

Contact RCA for a list of service or part suppliers.

Or find a model like yours on E-Bay or second hand that is going for parts!

The cassette keeps eating my tapes, what can I do???


You need to determine what is chewing the tape up. Most cassette doors clip off, this can often show the head and pinch rollers when they come into play. The pinch roller (the rubber one) is often the biggest cause of chewed tapes. But often it's the Take Up Reel that is not moving forward, so the tape is taken out of the cassette by the roller and spews out into the deck, getting tangled up in the roller. The roller itself can become worn and therefore doesn't make proper contact with the idler, or the idler (metal bar the roller pushes against) isn't turning caused by a belt that's broken.
The only way really is to observe what the tape is doing, but since this by definition means the tape could be chewed up, means you have to use an old tape that doesn't contain anything good on it. Make certain you can view as much of the workings of the deck mechanism as possible when using a test tape.
Since you don't mention the make or model number that is the best advise that any expert on here can give you.

Please note: The Sony CCP1310F is a High Speed Cassette Copier and I am looking for 24 Pinch Rollers - Sony Part No. X31623061.


If your local Sony distributor can't help, all I can suggest is trawling your local eBay, Craigslist, Gumtree, etc, for either individual rollers, or a machine to cannibalise....

If the reels are going to quick it is either in fast wind or the pinch roller and head base are not moving up. Try again and if still no result tthen a Technician needs to see it.

Thaks for helping. My tape deck door has suddenly stopped working. the tape is inside and when i turn on the wpower there is a clicking sound. it is a TEAC AD-500 CD player/reverse cassete deck


Without physically looking at the cassette deck myself, I cannot be 100% sure the tape is wrapped around the pinch roller and capstan. The capstan is the chrome rod which the rubber pinch roller pushes to regulate the speed of the tape moving across the head. However it is approximately a 90% chance the take up reel for the tape stopped working from a bad tape or a loose belt which drives the tape take up reel. The clicking sounds like it could be the auto reverse solenoid because it thinks the tape has reached the end of play. The fun part is to remove the tape which you may have to disassemble the front panel if you cannot gain access to the tape from the top or bottom. You will need to cut the tape and remove it from the capstan and pinch roller to open the cassette door. Sometimes you can remove the capstan to free the tape. Once you have cleaned all the tape out of the unit make sure the belt for the take-up is good. If it is glazed, cracked, loose or broken order a belt. Clean all the pulleys and capstan and replace the belt. Your unit should be functional after the above procedure.

My Nakamishi Cassette Deck 2 is eating tape. It switches off when it does, but how can I fix this? From the look of it this cassette deck has the same cassette drive as the DR-8. Is that correct?


It could be the take up spindle does not have enough torque causing the tape to bunch up after the capstan. If you open up the unit you will notice ether belts or rollers for the tape drive. If it has belts you can replace the belt after cleaning the pulleys. If it has rollers you may be able to clean them with a rubber cleaner (not alcohol which will dry the rubber and cause glazing). Make sure the capstan and the pinch roller is clean using a rubber revitalizing cleaner on the pinch roller. "Goof off" from a hardware store is great for the capstan if it has a lot of metal oxide on it.

Left deck doesn't "play" anymore.


There is a mechanism problem in the Pinch Roller part of the deck.
It needs to be looked at by a Technician to correct.

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.

Deck A won't turn


the problem is the clicking spring of the pinch roller,that pushing through the spindle,maybe is weak or is not there,try to find out inside the deck,if you cannot find it.Improvised a clicking spring by means of the string of the guitar number 00,is good of making spring.
