Question about Tape Decks
The machine powers up, and one little post spins round and round. It's the one on the right side. I don't know the correct name for it. It was working fine, and than it started going at double speed, and than it ate a tape. The tape got caught up in the wheel mechanism on the right.
The buttons are non responsive and the heads don't move at all.
The machine has idler assemblies that provide drive to the "takeup reelbase" When this drive fails, the tape is not gathered up into the cassette, but rather wraps around on itself on the capstan spindle and pinch roller. The mechanism will not release until the tape has been extracted from about the capstan spindle. This can require all sorts of ingenuity to acheive with pout damaging or bending transport parts. The tape may not be recoverable. The deck will require an overhaul to the transport belt and idler drives to get it back to decent working order again. If you could get it to me, cost you about $75 to overhaul it If you are not in Brisbane Australia, then you may have to locate someone near to you.
