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?

Re: cassette player on mx-d302t
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!

Just connect the deck via tape 1 the out of the deck going to the in of the amp. While the out of the amp goes to the in of the deck.
The tape deck itself will automatically choose the player that plays the cassette. One will play the other will be on pause (if you press both play buttons) till the tape stops then the other will play. For recording from tape to tape one deck will be the copy and the other the copier. There should be a dubbing button which you press to record tape to tape. Some models have a high speed dub also. For recording from the amp unless both decks have record buttons you will only be able to record with one deck. Make certain the dub button is not set.
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.
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
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.
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.
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
