Question about Panasonic RX-FS470 Cassette Boombox
When's the last time it was cleaned? It surely needs it now.
Never touch the any part of the transport that directly contacts the tape with bear fingers.
This sounds like a failure of the take-up (left) reel to take up slack as it's fed in by the capstan.
You can probably trust the machine to fast forward or rewind a tape to test the ability of the reels to manage slack since either action only requires one reel to pull while the other just coasts. Failure would look like stationary tape that eventually would time out and reset the command.
If it won't do fast transport motions that eliminates the capstan/pinch roller.
If it CAN FF and REW then the capstan, pinch roller, heads or something is probably glommed up with sticky tape oxide, which brings us back to the first question.
