I have this component unit and I cannot play the tapes. It just makes a grunting noise when I press tape. I have unplugged the unit and waited 10 minutes but still no playing. The door had difficulty opening but now is ok. but, unable to play tapes. Any suggestions. jvc not helpful for customer service. Is it worth fixing? Or is there some other problem solving I should do?

Probably you can get all your favorite music in digital media. Listen them on much better quality on mp3 and forget about your obsolete cassette player

Hi As you know cassette decks have been around along time, and as such they are fairly robust. The vast majority of the time, problems like you are describing are the result of a broken drive belt, or bad capstan motor. This is not true for all, but if you have favorite tapes you wish to play, you need the deck fixed, and if the problem is drive belt or motor, the repair normally should not be hugely expensive. Hope this helps, good luck!

Norcom 2400. Why can't I play a tape?

Check the Audio Cassette Tape
  1. Make sure the cassette tape is compatible with your device. Note: Some cassette players won't play High Bias or Metal tapes.
  2. Remove the tape from the cassette compartment. WARNING! There is a risk of hardware damage when you force to remove a stuck tape from the cassette compartment.
  3. Use a pen or pencil to turn the cassette reel and reduce tape slack.
Check the Cassette Player
  1. Remove the tape from the cassette compartment.
  2. Clean the tape player head and drive mechanism. Use a dry cotton swab to clean the surface of the pinch roller, play/recording head and erase-head

I have 2 and neither will play a tape. When you press play both make a strange noise

Is it the same tape every time or all tapes? If it is all tapes then it's more than likely a belt issue. The tape players have little rubber belts inside they sometimes get stretched when they are used alot. And they will make a whinning sound. They can be replaced.

Tape player not working

i have had this problem with mine what you can try is when it does the clicking sound you can take your fingers reach under the black part w/ the head and gently push up when it clicks if you hear more clicks and the part moves then try pushing and holding the tape switch located at the left or right top corners of the player then press play if the head goes up but the clicks 3 times fallowed by 6 clicks the repeat the process. what is going on is if they r not use it tends to lock up

Cassette player will not work

common fault on the JVC tape decks is the belt stretch and then it does a clicking sound its trying to pick up the audio heads. changing the belt is quite hard if you have`nt done it before.

? electrical short problem

I had the same problem and fixed it. It's simple: Open the case by removing the 6 screw on the outline back of the system and the 2 black ones on each sides. For me, it was the right tape who were problematic, so I started the player to see what gear was turning badly. The problem is: that gear don't have enough power to complete his action, so give it an additional (but not to much) power with your hand to complete his action and the system must succeed the action and stop running.

Tape deck not working

Possibly a slipping rubber belt in the tape unit drive is not gripping enough to complete an action and so is just stopping everything from happening until it completes that action. You might try GENTLY helping the belt complete its action.

Cassette player works fine, then screeches after 20-30 minutes.

Yeppers very common problem .. If the noise dosent come from the speakers then the problem is in the motor in the cassette deck. if the problem comes from the speakers when the deck is playing a tape, then the problem is in the record/playback switch. you may beable to fix it by spraying just a lttle bit of tuner cleaner inside the switch. It shouldnt cost much to have a repair shop do this as if you spray too much your going to ruin the belts and the mechanism. Good Luck
