ok sorry man gotta step in Its not the pinch roller as you claimed that picks up the slack on the tape its the pinch roller that would cause wow and flutter in audio on a tape on slower speeds what picks up tape slack is the takeup reel. Theres many reasons why the takeup reel dosent pick up the tape and there fore the unit "eats the tape" it could be a gear assy or even on older units could simply be the rubber drive wheel. Or a belt problem and I know these JVC s really well and its a combo the drive belt as well as the pickup gear assy.

Maybe a problem of no power to motor. I own 2 identical Aiwa units, both have tape deck problems. This brand is prone to them They also have nasty habit of tape cassette doors jamming.
1st off you never said how old the unit is. Awia have huge amount of models. Mine are the NX series that came out in black plastic. Most of the others are silver/grey. Honestly, unless you pop side screws and lift the cover off to eyeball anything loose. and none is? And if out of warrenty, the value of fix, mat exceed value of unit.
Sorry, but I see many of these, of 4-5 yr old units Aiwa brand,
get the heave ho!
The most stupid thing about this is: for units size, has the best sound of any other brand it's size.. Brilliant for hooking to ones TV sets, for surround sound!
What I did was get an older getto blaster that plays tapes to play my tapes on. some of these units are around and in good order, dirt cheap. And most electronic equipment problems cost at least $35 just to have a quick look at your unit.. cost of repair on top? I brought my 1st one new @ well over a grond. 3 yrs later, 2ns one, exactly the same $15.00 in a charity shop. The laser unit was dusty. All go in half an hr. Perhaps if it is an older model , look for another mate to it, It all comes down to costs.
Which is better option... you are the one who has to made the choice. Good luck. Jamz

My RS-TR272 tape deck plays the cassette but no sound. I have not even used it much, may be 3-4 times in last five years. I tried demagnetizing it but still no effect. It is brand new unit, only thing I did last time was that plugged in the RCA cables in opposite ways one time (Output in In and In into output one). I am not sure if that had any bad effect on it. Can someone please help on this as unit shows cassette playing. There is no volume switch on the unit itself as someone else recommended in the previous answer.
