Question about Tape Decks
Above noted deck, JVC KD-85 cassette deck, that I purchased brand new in 1980, just recently developed this problem that when I attempt to play a tape, it runs for a few seconds (up to 3 sec.) and then stops as someone hit the stop button.
It has the same issue when rewinding or FF with full load, up to near 1/2 tape capacity.
Also, upon insertion of tape, when the sensor pin is activated, a high pitch, a squeaky high pitch but very low noise can be heard.
All visible components, heads, capstan, pinch roller,...have always been cleaned regularly.
Do I need a new belt, a new motor, ...?
I thank you in advance
The deck will need new belts and idler drives cleaned and serviced, and perhaps some idler tyres replaced. You can get a belt kit from these guys. replacing them is not such a difficult job if you have some mechanical aptitude. Just take it slowly, and focus on getting the transport out of the unit.
