I buyed a YAMAHA KX-670 tape deck
Used some times last 3 months ago, I tryed to play cassettes
But tape don't plays tapes, no sound out !!!
Head and pinch rollers already cleaned
All belt and mechanism are okay
Mute search is okay : search start reorded parts
Nut when sewt to PLAY it starts only 2 second then stops automatically like I press the STOP button
What do you think about ?
Thanks very much in advance
If the take up side gets stuck it could feed excess tape and stop the mechanism. Look to see if both reels are turning when you push play. Remove cassette door for a better view if possible.
Make sure your tapes have NO slack in them. Fast forward and rewind one cassette all the way, then try again looking to see if both sides are turning. If not, you may have a belt that is old, stretched and slipping or it's split apart or just fallen off

Managed to find this blurb...
"The KX - 580SE is a refined model of the popular KX - 580, three time winner of ''What Hi Fi? Best Cassette Deck Award''. The KX - 580SE is a special edition which is UK specified. This cassette deck features CD to tape synchronized record start, timer record / play, new audiophile components in both the dolby and audio output stages, two - motor stable transport, Dolby HX pro dynamic bias servo, auto tape tuning and improved power supply."
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.
I may not have worked on one of these before but all tape decks have some common drive parts. Yours is missing the proper torque to drive the reel table in take-up for play and your fast wind observation also points to either drive transfer problems or the motor itself. I suspect the fastest answer is to have a tape deck technician work on it. Dual cassette decks are not known for being the long lasting products like a singles cassette deck is.
Yes, the belts need to be check and idlers or whatever drive mechanism that is used in that system. Dual deck units are among the most unreliable units there are and a reason I tell people for the last 30 years not to buy those things. Almost most of the time they are not worth fixing due to their poor performance at the end. These are facts not just opinion.
If the hum is audible without monitoring a tape playback it has nothing to do with the oxide formulation or any aspect of the media.
Determine the conditions present whenever the hum is present:
Player just turned ON?
Tape deck Playing or Paused?
Tape deck Recording or Paused?
"Tape" selected at the receiver?
Any source selected?
What switch are you referring to? You could have a floating ground or shield through a Tape Monitor or other control. Audio cables between the Deck and the receiver could be faulty or require reseating with a twisting motiuon to remove oxide build-up.
Hum can enter any unshielded cable running near any motor, magnetic field or some light sources. Sometimes simply reversing the polarity of an AC power cord will cure it.
Sounds like the cassette tape itself is too tight to play, try fast forwarding or rewinding the tape in the deck all the way to the end of tape several times before trying to play. This may solve the problem
if the heads are getting jammed in the up position it may be a failing capstan belt in the transport not disengaging the transport properly. replace the capstan belt. If one has failed both will probably be bad.
Ahh, Another Dual cassette deck. These are typically not worth a repair charge. I went looking for a service manual but Hi Fi Engine did not have one but they had a Owners Manual. Any unit that has a specification as to wow and flutter starting new at .18% was never made to be a long lasting deck of any quality. I don't like to be negative about people equipment but you might be better off getting a better deck from the start. If you think it is worth the repair, then send it to someone but I don't think you will want to sink $100 into a unit like this. I am not saying it is unrepairable but that with what you come out in the end you could have made a better choice for a deck to buy. It is probably a bad solder joint or bad capacitor on the circuit board. I am in Chicago and would look at it for you if you want.
