The issue is, that I purchased a set of 2 belts via eBay for my deck. I fixed the problem with the belt to move the cassette. But there is a second set in the pack and I cannot install this. Perhaps it is...


The belts you have replaced are used to operate the loading/unloading mechanism I assume. On the bottom of the cassette mechanism you will find the other belts...one from motor to idler wheel assy. or actual reel hub. Older cassette decks also used a belt to drive the tape counter mechanism.

Hi,
Tape players have several rubber belts in it and if we do not use them frequently belts loosen and become useless and they need to be replaced... . To accomplish this however you need some sort of handy man ability.. Take out the metal cover of the player by removing the screws on the sides .after removing the cover you can access the tape head /transport mechanism. if you look carefully to underneath of tape transport you will see the motor unit which belts will be there...check the belts for the moving mechanism and make sure the belts are not loosen / worn out or broken . You can replace it with a new one that may available in radio Shack stores. Take care..and let me know if it does not work out..
Take care and please Remember to rate/vote for us to

I expected that the RCA leads from my turntable would just plug into the back of the RCD-W500C, but the manual indicates a somewhat complex cabling arrangement through the amplifier. I have not been able...


Your new cd player/recorder is a "component piece" as is your turntable,cassette player, reel to reel or CD player. Connect it as you would any other component piece of stereo equipment. Set up your recorder to "record" in real time(not high speed or synch record). Your tape recorder records anything that is playing through your reciever to your speakers. So, treat your "CD" recorder as you would a "CASSETTE TAPE" recorder. Play your vinyl record on your turntable and record to CD on your CD recorder ! Pay special attention to the dubbing speed, you will not use "synch or high speed !! Good Luck

Tape is torn and I need to get it out of the cassette housing, splice the tape, then place in a new housing. Where can I get a repair kit??

This might work..

"Splice the broken end to the take up reel of a newly bought cassette that you can open.
open the new cassette,
trash the interior
If you can't move the old reels to the new mechanism:
tape one side of the broken cassette's tape to the new take up reel
close the new cassette (do not open or break the old cassette if it's not already done)
insert a pencil into the gizmo on the take up reel on the new cassette,
reel up the old cassettes tape into the new cassette
re open the new cassette
splice the other end to the new cassette's gizmo
close the new cassette
record the contents to digital"

I have a pioneer CT-F900 cassette deck, when I press play the reel side that should take up the slack stops and the tape bunches up and the drive mech disengages. The tape stops. Your help, please Steve


The take-up reel is dragging or the belt is stretched or broken. No surprise on a deck this old. Try Fast Forward. Try Rewind. Same result?

If it still doesn't work, and it happens with only one cassette, rap the cassette's flat side against a solid flat surface to loosen it. Try again.

If you're really an old-school deck user you probably know how to cheat the transport with no tape resent to make the capstans engage for cleaning. Try that. The two reels should spin opposite as if maintaining tension. If the right one is stationary or lethargic (try to feel how strong it pulls compared to the left one), there's a loose or broken belt.

Next step. Get out the can opener, go inside and see what's wrong. Good luck.

Hi saabangerman

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

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

1 Microfarad is easy, you need to specify a voltage rating though. These are easily available from any elextronics parts supplier. There are many on the web. Post the voltage and I'll list a few.

Nakamichi BX2 will not take-up tape and play


This may be a reel sensor problem, or the rotation of one of the reels is stopping for some reason. Most of the time, these faults are mechanical. There can be worn belts, or drive wheels, or gears, and etc. Sometimes there are faults in the electronics where a sensor is not being read properly.

The unit should be properly checked to evaluate the fault.
