Question about Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

I have a Pioneer CT-W301 dual cassette deck. The tape won't play, fast forward or fast reverse from either deck. I hear a clicking sound three or four times from either deck when pressing play of fast forward, but the motors won't drive. I can see a solenoid pullin during teh clicking sound. The power supplies are at 5.02v and 12.05v. The signals to play for each deck are at the system control chip pins. Any recommendations?

Sounds like a motor problem. Try turning the motor by hand to see if it's bound up.

I wonder if it has a counter and if so, is the belt that drives the counter too loose? Is the counter working?

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.

Pioneer CT-W208r won't eject tape.


These dual cassette decks were throw away units in most cases. The belt inside and the grease in the cam mechanism is in bad shape and the deck can not cycle through the steps it need to so as to reach stop. Only stop mode will allow the door block to release. The tape can safely be extracted by a Technician. The deck need work. Dual cassette decks are not always worn the repair cost.

Deck plays forward, fast forward and fast reverse O.K., but does not play backwards.


I don't have any quick answers as this is a newer deck than when I worked for the company- I would have to see the deck to determine the fault. Do you have the continuous reverse switch on -maybe that is it.

Problem with deck B on Pioneer CT-W205R


Better tape decks, like Pioneer, may use a different mechanism for record/play than FF & REW. So it sounds like a belt or mechanical link for the REC/PLAY has failed.

Dual Cassette Deck won't stop or auto-reverse


There is a tape tension sensor which, it appears, isn't working. Check to see if the linkage to this sensor may have been misaligned while you were replacing the belts. Also check to see that the sensor isn't binding or sticking.
