Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

We have a phonograpph with AM/FM radio, cassette and CD player, Model KA-1916. We have owned it about 18 months. The cassette deck does not work now. It played fine but now when you put in a cassette nothing happens. The machine is humming, the other parts work fine, but nothing happens to the cassette. The little wheels do not turn around when you push play.

The most likely problem is with the belt that goes around the flywheels of the deck. You would need to take the cassette deck out of the unit and check it out to be sure. If the belt has come off or is broken, it needs to be replaced with the same type of belt and then it needs to be put back on in the exact way it is meant to be put on. This is something that may not be very easy for you to do unless you have some experience with this sort of repair. Taking apart a cassette deck can cause more problems with it, if it is not put back together perfectly.

The best solution for you would probably be to take it in to a repair center. If you decide to try it yourself, I am willing to offer help, but I do advise against it if you have no experience with them.

Let me know if you want more help,

Dave

The cassette adapters are notorious for getting stuck in the deck. More often than not its the wire that comes out of it that causes it. The cleanest and safest way to remove the cassette adapter is to remove the radio, take off the top and "Help" it eject with your fingers or some narrow tool that may get behind it to push it forward and out. If you dont want to take the deck out of the dash, you can try pushing the eject button while manipulating the adapter wire, but I dont recommend it. Its just better to take the deck out. Good Luck
