Question about Kenwood Audio Players & Recorders
The fast rewind/forward function works but when I press play it clicks and the player behaves as if the tape was broken (stuck) and it stops automatically. Without tape however the knob turns
Well two things have to happen to make tape move in a cassette deck. One is the Capstan shaft has to rotate and that is usually a belt link to a motor through a pulley. The second thing is you must have take-up torque. If the tape moves but the take-up reel does not pull it onto the take-up reel then you either have a eaten tape or the deck will shut off. in your complaint it could be any of these items- maybe a bad Idler from the reel motor or the capstan belt is old and stretched.

SOURCE: Tape is stuck in the player
A manual for your unit can be found here.
It sounds like an electrical fault in the unit has left that side's motor without power.
Try powering off the tape deck and unplugging it, then waiting for an hour or so. Re-plug and power it back on and see if function has been restored.

it has probably thrown the capstan belt and will require a new belt fitted. the transport relies on capstan rotation to engage play. a separate reel motor operates ff/rew and takeup funtions
