No sound on cassette deck

I went to turn on the tape deck and it shows the tape is playing, but there is no sound out of either deck. All the connections are good and I have cleaned the heads. I lost the manual and cannot find a place to download one for free. Any suggestions. I don't use it that often, but the last time I used it, everything was fine.l

Hi Does the deck have VU meters?...or a graphic display of some kind to indicate there is sound being picked up from the heads? If there are, and they are not moving or flashing, as the case may be, then you could have a wire off the head, or a problem in the preamp circuit, or if the deck is older, it could be as simple as a dirty play/record switch. I would need more info to help further. Good Luck!

I have a Soundesign 4387 stereo boombox the left deck won't turn when you insert a tape and push play.

There could be a few reasons why the left deck on your Soundesign 4387 boombox is not turning when you insert a tape and push play. Here are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the issue:
  1. Check to make sure that the left deck is not already playing a cassette. If a cassette is already in the left deck, try pressing the "eject" button to remove it and then reinserting it to see if it will play.
  2. Check to see if the left deck belt is broken or loose. If the belt is broken or loose, it may not be turning the tape deck properly.
  3. Make sure that the cassette is not upside down or inserted incorrectly.
  4. Check the left deck for any visible signs of damage or debris that may be causing the issue.
If none of these troubleshooting steps help, it is possible that there is a more serious issue with the left deck of your boombox that will require more extensive repairs. In this case, it may be best to take the boombox to a professional repair shop to have it checked out.

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

Denon DRW-585 dual-cassette deck makes clicking sound

There is an outside chance your tape cassett has a static charge. Tape in plastic case of cassette can build up significant electrical static which can partially discharge as tape is run. It can sound like random thumps, ticks, pops ect. Wrap cassette in a damp (not dripping wet) cloth, for several hours, then try again. This can also happen to the reels and drive rollers of the deck

Tape shows playing but no sound

Is sound at the headphone socket?
Does the meter show audio output?
If the answer is yes to these questions check that the connections to the amp are correct and the amp is set up is ok.

Repair of Sansui cassette deck D-1000W and Compu Receiver Z-5000X in India.

This is a fairly old and obsolete model and its components are now not manufactured. If you are lucky, some stockists may have replacement part, but normally at very high price.

Technics RS-TR272 dual cassette deck

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.
