Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Tape deck no longer plays, rewinds or fast forwards. the pinch roller is still working though.
Halo I have the same problem. The motor that moves the tone heads up only shake a bit but dont move it up to the tape.
The take up clutch motor does not move at all and there is no volt on the motor.
Did you find a solution?

SOURCE: TEAC V770 3head tape deck.
The unit sounds like it has a take up clutch or takeup idler problem. Check all the drive assemblies in the unit. Remove the cover from the front of the transport inside the cassette well, and check the condition of the idlers and reel base drives. The counter belt can also gatherup and prevent the takeup reel from working correctly, or fire the auto stop mechanism preventing it from playing, although that sounds to be ok in this case as the unit will FF and REW ok. The takeup drive is supplied by a different drive idler as it requires much lower and more controlled torque. This unit was always considered to be a great tape deck and is well worth a bit of attention for restoration. You can get a new belt kit for $19.00 from here
