Cassette Player Tape plays too fast. Cleaned audio heads/guides and replaced belts. Still plays too fast on both decks. Any adjustments/component checks I can do?

    My belts needed to be replaced because the tapes would not eject. Now the tapes play too fast. Could I have threaded the belts wrong?



    Please help,

  • very easy.. if your motor 12 v or 6 volts...for 12 volts motor buy an ic "kia 7812 this parts is voltage regulator with 12 volts 1a output..7806 this parts is volt.reg with volts 1a output..7803 3 volts output etc. etc.
  • input 1st terminal
  • ground mid terminal
  • output 3rt terminal
same a transistor.

I had this same issue with my stereo. I found that the rotation of the capstan was being blocked by a little glob of a red substance. I removed the substance and it allowed the capstan to rotate freely.

It might be a button error like the play button is making the fast forward button work.

Motor speed needs to be regulated by PWM. Reducing the current (with a resistor) actually lowers the torque - which, with a given load, does result in reduced speed - however, different length tapes (60min vs 90min), as well as different quality, and even current position in the tape, will change the load and hence the speed. You need to regulate the speed via PWM. It's sometimes done on a small board built into the motor, in which case you'd have a round hole into which you could insert an INSULATED screwdriver (tiny flathead wrapped most of the way in electrical tape works). It may be done on the main board, in which case you could find a pot conveniently labeled "motor speed", or perhaps "pulse width" or "pwm" or something to that effect. Find it, mark its current position just in case, and turn it to see if it gets the effect you're after. And there are some tape decks in the world with no speed adjust - they are designed with a specific speed motor and the sizes of the wheels and gears are calculated for that speed. Also there may be a mechanical fault/malfunction causing the speed problem. An initial check and thorough cleaning of the capstan and pinch roller should be done. If there is a buildup of tape oxide or a piece of a broken tape wrapped around the capstan, the tape travel will be too fast (do to the effective increase in capstan shaft diameter). If the pinch roller isn't fully engaging, the tape can be getting pulled onto the takeup spool at a speed faster than the capstan control. A different source of trouble might be a slip clutch (possibly an idler/clutch assembly)which is binding, or otherwise not functioning the way it should. Another type of motor doesn't have it's speed controlled by an internal or external voltage.. instead, the motor has an internal centrifugal speed controller. This type of motor can be found on older tape decks, and might not have been utilized more recently. Good luck

Why is audio warbled and seems slow?


Belt slippage or excessive friction in drive. Roll up sleeves and check it out.

JVC TD-W718 double tape deck capstan belt


Probably the wrong belt. It is also possible that your old belt had stretched and the machine was playing slow. Check with a recording of instrumental (not vocal) music.

If you have a little screwdriver you can adjust the motor's speed via the little hole on the back of the motor.

I suggest a plastic screwdriver so you don't short something out.

Using a tuning fork or electronic tuner or musical instrument will help you get the speed right.

Sony TC-138SD cassette deck starts to play then stops after 3 secs. Same when trying to rewind/fast forward


It sounds like the belt is slipping or broken which monitors the speed of the tape movement. When you play or rewind the tape, it thinks the tape has reached the end of play and shuts off. You can try a different tape to make sure the tape does not have too much tension on it. If the second tape has the same result you will need to remove the top cover of the deck to inspect the tape drive mechanism. Make sure the belts and pulleys are clean and replace any belts which have glazing or cracks. If the belt is broken you will need to replace it with a compatible belt of the same length and width.

I have a single cassette deck Philips DC 900 when you hit the play button,it plays for about 5 seconds then stops and head retracts. Belts have been replaced


It's not seeing the takeup reel turning.
Either the takeup reel isn't turning or the takeup reel sensor has malfunctioned.
Check the belt to the takeup reel by doing a fast forward.
Will it fast forward? and is the takeup reel spinning during playback?

this sounds like the belts on the take-up pinch wheel if it's streached then it's going to be fast if you can find all belts that take tape to drum and read heads then check each one if streached replace if all fails when replaced belts then it needs repair. hope this works

Denon DRM 740 tape does not play


Just bought a unit from a thrift store. Found same problem; FF & RW OK, but play engages then stops. Also noticed buzzing noise when power turned on. Opened unit, found broken capstan drive belt. FF & RW driven from different motor. Buzz was drive motor running freely with no load - when power is on, capstan is driven all the time for fast play/record start. Replaced with rubber band, and it works --- now looking for replacement belt.
