Question about Sony PSYC ZS-D55 Cassette/CD Boombox
My Sony ZS-D55 is two years old and has been used in a clean environment with batteries only. It has recently begun clicking at the end of a fast-forward or rewind action, and sometimes shuts off, sometimes not (as if auto-stop is trying, but failing). Yesterday, it decided not to release the tape-drive path machinery and will not do anything but click three times, and, accordingly, the cassette door will not open. Meanwhile, a rented audio-book cassette seems to have found a comfortable new home with a lock on the door!
Hi I'm not familiar with your particular model, but the auto stop problem is common and is usually the result of a slipping drive belt, or bad idler/reel drive. The auto-stop works by popping a small tooth like plastic or nylon piece attached to an arm, when you runout of tape and takeup reel pulls the tape tight. The auto-stop mech can get contaminated with dust, and not work, or the reel for some reason does not pull the tape tight enough to fully engage that piece and the result is a ticking sound. As the deck now has your tape, I suspect the main drive belt is broken or probably slipping, and all will work fine if it is replaced. Although changing the belt is not difficult, you should probably take it to a repair shop, as getting the right size is important, and the deck may have to be dismantled to change it. Hope this helps, good luck!
