Question about Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders
SOURCE: I have a pioneer CT-F900
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.

You have to select any available 'tape loop' .
Receiver Tape Out (Rec) - to INPUT
Receiver Tape In (Play) - from OUTPUT 1 or 2
A tape deck would hang off the back of the EQ using ITS tape loop.
