Onkyo TA-2700 - Won't Play Tapes

My Onkyo TA-2700 tape deck will not play tapes. The mechanism engages the heads to the tape, I hear something act like it's trying to turn (and the drive wheel even spins about a 64th of an inch) then it just stops like it's reached tape end even though it's the beginning.

I haven't had it apart yet, though I suspect it's not a direct (gear-driven) drive so the rubber drive bands have worn\become too aged to continue to function. Does anyone know where I can locate NOS parts to replace these myself?

Thanks!

    Actually, I already did. I was told it was an ''obselete'' item and they couldn't even offer me the service or owner's manual.



    Thanks for the input, though.



    Anyone else?

Open the deck and look for the copper colored leaf switches (above the plastic comb) that get corroded / dirty over the years.. Clean them with deoxide or similar and your are most likely good to go..

TA-RW255 DUAL CASSETTE DECK


Have you check and make sure that the belts are working well?
Is the pinch roller working (spinning)?
A worn out belt will make the mechanism not to operate properly resulting in shutdown to avoid damage to the tapes.

What is the bias control's function?


The Bias control is used during recording. If you turn down the bias, you will get more highs, but the distortion will increase, and then start to increase dramatically if you back off the bias more.

As far as playing tapes from different decks goes.......

1..Does the tape that you recorded on your deck sound OK on your deck ?
2..Does the tape that you recorded on your deck sound OK on other decks ?

If 1 and 2 are true, then your deck is OK.

If the tapes recorded on a specific deck sound bar on yours, but 1 and 2 are true, then the other deck is faulty.

When a deck leaves the factory, the head is aligned to a " standard " tape. By standard tape I mean a very special tape recorded in such a way, that a tech can tell if the head is out of align and "tweek " the physical alignment of the tape head..

All decks are aligned just a little differently, but fairly close to each other.

first do the mechanicals....is the head of your deck spotlessly clean ?. Use 99% pure isopropanol alcohol and a cotton swab. Never use anything metal to clean the tape head. If you scratch the head, its toast.

If your deck is clean, plays its own recordings well, and those recordings play well on other decks, then your deck is not the problem.

Hope this helps,
Rob

I have a onkyo cassette tape deck ta 2600,when you push play on the cassette,it would play the tape for half of a second and stop


Sounds like the cassette tape itself is too tight to play, try fast forwarding or rewinding the tape in the deck all the way to the end of tape several times before trying to play. This may solve the problem

Tape deck won't play.


Sounds like the belt that drives the capstan is too slack or decomposed, The capstan(s) which are connected to a geared flywheel, also drives the transport mechanism. There can also be tarnish on the sensor leaf switches, preventing contact. You might try to repair it yourself but, it is not an easy or simple job

Denon Dual Cassette Deck DRW-660 will not eject either tape. I put a tape in right side, played a bit, stopped, will not eject. I put another tape in left side, closed, cannot eject. Cannot eject either....


Some dual decks use a common drive belt. It may have become too slack (due to age) to drive mechanism. I am sure its time to change all belts in both decks. This will solve the problem
