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

What size replacement belts do I need for a Technics RS M218 cassette deck? Where can I find them?


Replacement parts for a radio this old may be impossible to find. Sometimes it works like that. But there is something else that can be done. First thing is you can make a belt. Older items often have to be retrofitted. Another thing is this radio sells for $100 - $150 often times. A belt or important part can easily run $20+. Even the manual is $20. So often times searching for someone selling the entire item in functioning order and buying the entire unit and having not only the part you need but an entire radio worth of parts is the best way to go. If something else happens you have the part right there. So I found a radio like yours that is the exact same model as yours on e-bay. The cost is $20. It is so cheap because it has some "deep scratches on it." So if you have one that already looks good this is a great buy because the internal parts you need on the for sale radio work fine. This is a buy it now item. If I was in your shoes, this is what I would do. http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-Technics-Single-Cassette-Tape-Deck-Rs-m240x-/150580472013?pt=Vintage_Electronics_R2&hash=item230f4ba8cd#ht_2048wt_1139

I have a older model record player/8-track/cassette/radio stereo. It have been in an attick in the box for many years. The record player does not turn - it is very stiff. I can manually turn it with my...


A combination of heat and dirt is "public enemy #1" for electronic devices. Most people's attics are loaded with both.

A thorough cleaning followed by careful lubrication may bring the record player or "turntable" back to life - but it will most likely need to be done while at least partially disassembled. A few drops on the center spindle from above is no guaranty that the oil will seep underneath the platter - as most are solid parts. You didn't include a name and model number so I can only speak in generalities rather than specifically to your model.

Much of both the tape drive mechanisms rely on rubber drive belts. These belts look like simple rubber bands but are not (and will not work when replaced with rubber bands either - I know - I've tried). The drive belts, like most simple rubber bands will dry out very quickly and break in the extreme heat found in attics in the summer. Similarly, many turntables are belt driven, too. The belts for those, while longer and thicker, will suffer the same fate in those conditions. Inspection and replacement of these belts seldom can be done without some dis-assembly. The turntables that are direct drive do not have these belts. The drive motors for both types of turntables may benefit from one or two drops of sewing machine oil (or other light, thin oil) applied at the point the drive shaft meets the motor housing. Anything that turns or rubs against other moving or stationary parts can also receive a single drop of oil. Do not over do it - and wipe away excess oil as oil attracts dust and dirt.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

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??


Cat. No. 44-626 used to be available at Radio Shack but no more.

http://www.tracertek.com/new-cassette-tape-shells


This might work..

http://www.gearslutz.com/board/geekslutz-forum/31114-cassette-repair-kit.html

"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"

Kenwood KA-72B Stereo Receiver HELP NEEDED.


Why not plug the cassette directly into the CD recorder? Are they trying to achieve some eqalization change? If not, then this should work. It's all analog at tape level.
