Question about Kenwood Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

Kenwood Stereo Cassette Receiver KRX-5 -- when i press the Play, FastForward or Rewind buttons it does'nt work or activate the command it supposed to do when pressing those buttons? i just hear a little motor-like sound, like coming from the transport controls trying to work, but its not turning or moving the tape at all ? its those "soft-touch" type of transport buttons, so maybe the mechanism that the buttons activate went out? the main question is why it does'nt start moving/playing once you press a button? and then just lets go and stops after only trying for couple seconds? i took top off and looked carefully around and everything looks clean and new in and out, like it did'nt have much heavy use, no worn marks on buttons, the rollers and tape head area looks clean and perfect. i kept seeing people replacing rubber belts? but i did'nt see where those are located when i looked around inside. any tips or advice on how i could troubleshoot this? or if its just not even worth fixing? thanks in advance for any ideas or things i can try - Jon

SOURCE: teac A-21 Stereo Cassette Tape Deck turns un, but won't play cassette tapes...

very likely that the drive belt has broken. I have fixed a TEAC myself using a large O-Ring from a hardware store (I know I was lucky to find a very close match). Open the unit and find the broken belt and take it to a hardware store to "size up" a replacement. Use the opportunity to oil the gear shafts and clean the rubber pinch roller.

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.

SOURCE: Cassette Recorder play problem

Left(Playback) deck of cassette player turns off within about 2 sec's after inserting a cassette to play. Rewind and Fast Forward stop also after about 1 to 2 seconds. When pushing button to play it turns back off right away. I suspect the end of tape/tension sensor is the culprit but do not know where it is. Have not taken any steps except finding this site first off!

Look for small leaver or any contact switches. They might have become bent out of shape or broken, or have dirt in them, cutting off the sound. Also check the leads coming from the head, they might have become detached or at least you can trace where they join the PC board. If you touch where they join you should get a buzz on either channel.

How do you turn off standby on a kenwood krx-89 stereo


Hi, is the red light that says power On? If not, it could just be the fuse since I had the same problem. If you take the lid off, it should be in the left rear and is a 250v 6amp fuse. I had the same problem where only the standby light and the input lights were on. Neither the radio and cassette lights were on.

Try to clean head with cleaning cassette,if this won't help, your camera has problem with tape path(pole base alignment). Consult your nearest JVC Service Center.

Kenwood KX-W6080 dual stereo cassette tape deck


I have the same unit which had the same problem. It has to do with dirty contacts on each tape mechanism.

Remove the main cover and look down on each tape mechanism. You will see 4 contacts on each unit. These come in contact with the tape. Remove each unit by removing 4 holding screws.

You will now be able to spray some contact cleaner into the front of the plastic contact cover. I removed the covers on both of the second from the right contacts so that I could clean them with an abrasive. These are the main ones.

Put everything back the way it was and the tape deck should work great.

Kenwood KA-72B Stereo Receiver HELP NEEDED.


Why not plug the cassette directly into the CD recorder? Are they trying to achieve some eqalization change? If not, then this should work. It's all analog at tape level.
