Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

TC-WR99ES Deck powers up with indicator lamps but when I press play, reverse, or ff or rr on either deck A or B, the lamps initiate but no mechanics...also neither cassette door will open with controls. I think I have problem with the mechanism controller IC802 or IC809 which is between the switch and the controller. It is a US model but I have been using it in Japan where the voltage is somewhat less and 50 HZ. Over time I lost control, first over one deck then the other...now I do not have any control. Of the top of your head, do I sound headed in the right direction.

Not knowing what brand/model tape deck you have, I would suggest you make sure the belts are good before you get into replacing servo ICs

Dual cassette deck are often poorly built and full of problem with age. They are typically not worth repair. Get a good deck like the Tascam 122 Mk II as these can be repairs.
I have consulted with clients that have dual decks and the cost to repair will get you a Tascam 122 Mk II in restored condition and it works much much better. I should know as I have been repairing decks for 40 years so far.

How do I dub using the onyx double cassette deck?


There should be a button or switch that will select the recording deck and the dubbing deck. You put a blank tape into the recording deck and the pre-recorded one into the play deck. Pressing the record button on the dubbing deck, on some models should start the play deck running. If not press play on that deck.

Tape Transport issue


FF and Rewind are functions of the reels, not the capstans. If the reels fail to rotate in response to capstan-driven tape motion the unit will assume a broken tape or end of tape. I think you have a mechanical reel drive system failure. Take it to a shop for evaluation and correction.

Sony tc-wr535 won't eject. Tape stuck. Won't play cassette on either deck A or B .makes noises but won't FF or play, gets stuck and wont eject. Will belt conditioner work? What do I use?


The problem, according to messages on your site, is that the belts are old and have stretched. There is a great step by step tutorial on www.Instructables.com with pictures and all. Parts are not too hard to find on search engine. Looks like less than $25 to fix.

The power is on but the motor will not turn the tape drive. Does anyone know a good repair shop?


Hmm, when you press play, can you feel the motor turning, do the spindles turn on fast forward or rewind? If so you may have one of two problems. First check to see if the cue button is is depressed. If it is jammed, the deck will FF and RR but won't play. If it's not that, but the motor still spins, the motor is no longer making contact with the flywheel. If you have a repair manual, dismantle the deck and check out the motor contact

Problem with deck B on Pioneer CT-W205R


Better tape decks, like Pioneer, may use a different mechanism for record/play than FF & REW. So it sounds like a belt or mechanical link for the REC/PLAY has failed.
