It can be a bad ground inside the deck or broken solder joint. I have fixed this case often but can not tell you exactly the problem unless I see the unit.

Get the service manual at stereomanuals dot com and then you will need the alignment tapes and other equipment to work on the deck just like a Technician does, I have been doing them for over 40 years now.

Get the service manual and look at the mechanical drawings of where the belt goes. Most seasoned Technicians just go in and do it. A beginner will have to be more cautious. There are other things in the deck that also need attention like parts oiled and other idlers replaced.
Some Technics decks were ever made to be repaired.

The tape player recorder that pull the tape out could have the following faults: 1) It has a separate belt from the motor/capstan to the take=up turntable. 2) Capstan roller skew the gap when you bring the mechanism in can be checked and it must be PARALLEL with the surface of each other.3) Faulty cassettes they are binding in their housing due to heat or bad manufacture! Try to rewind and wind your cassette end to end both directions. 4) head alignment not set correctly 5) clutch of take up reel worn or has a bad tension spring. depending how it was made.

Ahh, Another Dual cassette deck. These are typically not worth a repair charge. I went looking for a service manual but Hi Fi Engine did not have one but they had a Owners Manual. Any unit that has a specification as to wow and flutter starting new at .18% was never made to be a long lasting deck of any quality. I don't like to be negative about people equipment but you might be better off getting a better deck from the start. If you think it is worth the repair, then send it to someone but I don't think you will want to sink $100 into a unit like this.
I am not saying it is unrepairable but that with what you come out in the end you could have made a better choice for a deck to buy.
It is probably a bad solder joint or bad capacitor on the circuit board.
I am in Chicago and would look at it for you if you want.

a system remote is the only option for you here. The deck does not have its own remote receiver. Sorry to break the bad news to you.

technics wont play cd-r or any copy cd's thats why you get no disc but if this is the case with all cd's then it sounds like you need a new laser unit, the crackling sound is your laser breaking up, there easy to come by on ebay plenty for sale worldwide.
