Hi I can probably tell you what is wrong, but there is usually not much you can do except take it to a shop and have the motor replaced. I most cases there is a hole in the back of the cassette capstan drive motor, or on a small circuit board close to the motor where the speed is adjusted at the factory. You could possibly adjust the speed by ear until it sounded right playing a factory recorded tape with a song you know well, but I recommend these adjustments be left to a tech with a frequency counter. Also, these adjustments normally never need to be touched unless replacing a motor, so it is likely something internal has gone wrong with the motor, and it should be replaced under most circumstances. Hope this helps, Good Luck.

I have Aiwa CX-NA508. Tape player 1 just ate my cassette and the 2nd tape player doesn't play at all.. Is the 2nd player supposed to play back cassette tapes or is it just for dubbing tapes?

Both players should play a tape. In fact the player can be set up so when tape player 1 finishes the tape, player 2 will kick on to play the other tape by itself. Only one is the recorder to dub another tape or record CD to tape.

My JVC DR-MV150B plays prerecorded VHS tapes fine.

Try opening the front hatch of the tape by pressing the small, square button on the right or left (short) side of the tape. Check the black tape inside for any marks, dirt, scratches, tears, etc. If the tape is fine then your unit needs to be cleaned with a tape cleaner available at any electronics specialty or retail store. Good luck to you!

How do I record from one tape deck to the other?

Put your "blank" in the deck with the record button, normally red button and press rec/play and pause at the same time, put your "origional" in the other deck and press play and pause at the same time, then un-pause both at the same time. Make sure that the hifi is set to tape as if you record tape to tape when listening to radio foe example, you will get a strange "mix tape" of your origional and the radio.

Cassette player problem

Sounds like the take-up reel isn't turning. Often the linkage for the take-up reel is used for both Play and Fast Forward. So test the Fast Forward.

I would look for a broken belt or slipping drive wheel. The fact that the tapes are unraveling tells me that the capstan is pulling the tape out of the feed reel.
