Clicking sound in tape deck

Problem with tape deck. When the unit is turned on, tape deck 2 makes a clicking noise (for about 5 seconds) like it is attempting to 'play' a tape (no tape is there). The whole roller mechanism engages and the door becomes stuck. When I wedge the door open, I can manually move the roller mechanism back down (allows the door to close). Unfortunately, the next time the unit is turned on, the same thing occurs. I don't even really want the tape deck functionality back (although that would be nice). I would just like the clicking sound to stop so I can play the radio and CDs. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

All Aiwas  are prone to this problem.  The doors are a real pain and easily give up the ghost.  I have 2, both probmatic in this direction.
I have spoken to others about this problem. Seems no easy fix.
Have you in your case, tried leaving and old tape in the tape part of your  unit . The noise you hear, usually starts when tape unit area doors are about to pack a wobbly. Unless under warrenty, proberly,
not worth getting fixed.    It seems something gets weak in the activation part and get a mind of its own.  Very common after about 3 yrs of ownership.  All the best: jamz

Panasonic boombox tape deck only plays for 5 seconds then stops


Look for a stretched belt that is linked to a reel table. This may be the way the rotation sensor works in your unit or it could be a lack of take-up torque due to a bad Idler tire. I have fixed many of them in the past years. Direct examination is the only way to resolve the problem and typically the cost exceeds the units value.

"A" side/deck wont play----"B" deck works just fine


Loose belts and lack of lubrication. Dual cassette decks are built to minimum standards so that it does not take much to push them over the edge to be non-functional. It is almost like they should provide a tape deck repair course with these types of units as it is most certain that you are going to need it. They want you to throw it away and buy another one. This is where the throw away economy started.

Technics tape deck rs-eh600 wont play it just clicks


Another dual deck it seems- the unit will need service by a Technician, there is no magic that will make it work. It may be as little as a large belt. I would have to see the unit to tell you the exact cause.

Initial setup no sound from my end


When setting up receivers or amplifiers,
Following will help to determin or correct the Problem.

1) Do not plug any sources into the unit but power cord. Then wait for 0~5 second while an ear on top of the unit. See whether the clicking Sound can be heard. ** This will tell whether the actual unit has problem or not in Power Supply or in Power Amp Circuit. If it clicks, then The Amp/Receiver is partially OK. In other word, the problem may be something else. If No Clicking Sound, then Definitely there is Problem. Meaning The unit must be serviced by Professionals. ***NOTE: This applies to Modern Receivers or Amplifiers (I would say, the units manufactured after 1980.). Vintage Units may not Apply.

2) Make Sure Speaker Selector Switch for "A" is on.

3) If Above is met (if Clicks), By visual inspection, See if the Tape Switch (Source Select) or Tape Monitor Switch is on or not (Usually Tape 1 or 2 indicator lights). This switch mu be off!! or set to tuner.

4) Many of the receivers or Amplifiers has a Loop called "Main In/Pre Out" at the back of the unit. There must be horse shoes type pins in them. Otherwise it will not Sound. (Some units has a On/Off Switch near by those jacks and have to be on position).

5) Some Units has so called "External Processor Loop" similar to #4 above and the Switch is on the Face fanel usually. (Must be Off Position)

After the Steps #1~#5, if Everthing is Corrected, then the tuner should Sound (Unless there is proble with tuner).

Now Plug in one Source at a time.
****NOTE: When plug in Tape Deck, Make sure to plug in properly. Out of Tape Deck to Play of Receiver, In of Tape Deck to REC of Receiver. Otherwise (if Reversed), the Sound will be muted or No Sound Will Occure.

The deck will need new belts and idler drives cleaned and serviced, and perhaps some idler tyres replaced. You can get a belt kit from these guys. replacing them is not such a difficult job if you have some mechanical aptitude. Just take it slowly, and focus on getting the transport out of the unit.

Sounds like the tape tension sensor is stuck. The sensor is always telling the mechanism that the tape has reached the end.
