Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a Sharp dual cassette deck, model RT-W800. I know it is a real oldie, but would still like it to work. Tape 1 does not turn at all, either regular speed or fffwd or reverse. Tape 2 turns but does not play at all. I checked the connection to the tuner but no go. Got this at an auction with other components and all the rest work, so not sure what the issue is with this one . Thanks.

SOURCE: Door won't open

It might be a model that has a special IC that allows the door to open and close.

You'll need to take the case off.

try hifiengine.com...that site may have the service manual.

SOURCE: Cassette door won't open

IF it is a deck with " soft touch " controls, that is, you arent using the old press hard down " piano key" style, but NOT a pure touch switch activation, then chances are either the drive belt has slipped, the belt broke, or the motor died. If this is the case ( soft touch = yes ), then unplug the unit, pop the cover off. You should be able to see the mechanism. When you view the mechanism from the front ( the side you normally see when using the deck ), the shiny little silver post that pulls the tape through during normal play will turn counter colckwise ( the shiny post runs against a rubber wheel ( the pinch roller )). What you should try is , with the unit unplugged and the cover off, if you can get your fingers to the deck in question, find the flywheel, should be a larger disk with a belt around it. Carefully spin the flywheel with your finger so that it turns counter clockwise, if you were looking from the front of the unit. This should cycle the deck through its cycle until you hear a click. Try to open the door. If the door doesnt open, press the stop button WHILE turning the flywheel again. This should drop the head assy and disengage the door lock mechanism. Remember, make sure the deck is unplugged, and BE GENTLE. you may feel a little resistance as you turn the flywheel. A little is OK, just be careful. If the flywheel comes to a hard stop when you are turning it, then something is jammed and you need to take it to a repair shop. Good luck...Rob. In the future, please specify a make and model so we can better help you . Thanks !!!

Kenwood KX-79 CW dual cassette hook up?


Just connect the deck via tape 1 the out of the deck going to the in of the amp. While the out of the amp goes to the in of the deck.


The tape deck itself will automatically choose the player that plays the cassette. One will play the other will be on pause (if you press both play buttons) till the tape stops then the other will play. For recording from tape to tape one deck will be the copy and the other the copier. There should be a dubbing button which you press to record tape to tape. Some models have a high speed dub also. For recording from the amp unless both decks have record buttons you will only be able to record with one deck. Make certain the dub button is not set.

How do you hook up a sharp stereo cassette deck RT-W800


If that tape deck of yours has an audio line out jack (like the RCA red & white holes, usually located at the back), get an RCA plug to connect it to your stereo receiver's line in jack..... or

if that tape deck of yours doesn't have an audio line out jack but, instead, has phones (or headphones) jack (usually located at the side or front of the unit), then get a plug to connect it to your receiver's audio line in jack (RCA type, also coloured red & white).. Usually the plug is small so you may have to use an adapter for your tape deck's phones jack.

Sony dual deck, deck B works fine, deck A won' run the tape but just keeps clicking as it auto-reverses.


Hi amitchell47,
The rubber belts that turns the gears is already worn out. Usually, there are two rubber belts in a cassette deck. You have to replace both belts. I hope everything works out. Good luck.

Tape reel on either deck stops and tape gets jammed. This is on a Tascam dual cassette deck model 322.


Try replacing the belt, because when the belt is a bit old it looses its elasticity and it can't drive the whole thing properly.Tape A and Tape B works independently.

I need to know how to record 1 tape onto another tape on a Technics rs tr-575 dual cassette deck


press the synchro start button, the tape deck should now go to REC PAUSE, press the SPEED button till you get the required recording speed then press the synchro start again and it should start to record from deck 1 to deck 2.

make sure the tabs at the top of the tape you want to record on are intact,
if not just put a bit of sticky tape over holes.

hope this helps?

Sounds like the tape tension sensor is stuck. The sensor is always telling the mechanism that the tape has reached the end.
