Question about Dual Audio Players & Recorders
Hello, Edward -
I have only been able to find Service Manuals for the Marantz SD-160 dual deck cassette player for sale.
I was unable to find the operating manual for the vintage cassette player / recorder on the Marantz website.
However, if you have not yet already done so, I suggest you contact Marantz Support, either via phone or email, and ask if there is a copy of the operating manual for the SD-160 in the company archives and if they could provide you (sell you) a photocopy or scanned PDF version of the manual. This is the link to the Marantz Support page:
If that option doesn't work out, Option 2 is to find one or more online sellers (eBay, Craigslist, Amazon, etc.) of the model of cassette player / recorder and see if they mention the operating / owner's manual in the product sales information. If they don't mention a manual, I suggest contacting the seller/s and asking if they have the manual.
If you find an online seller with the manual, ask if he / she would either photocopy the manual for scan it as a PDF document and sell it to you.

It might be a model that has a special IC that allows the door to open and close.
You'll need to take the case off.
try hifiengine.com...that site may have the service manual.

IF it is a deck with " soft touch " controls, that is, you arent using the old press hard down " piano key" style, but NOT a pure touch switch activation, then chances are either the drive belt has slipped, the belt broke, or the motor died. If this is the case ( soft touch = yes ), then unplug the unit, pop the cover off. You should be able to see the mechanism. When you view the mechanism from the front ( the side you normally see when using the deck ), the shiny little silver post that pulls the tape through during normal play will turn counter colckwise ( the shiny post runs against a rubber wheel ( the pinch roller )). What you should try is , with the unit unplugged and the cover off, if you can get your fingers to the deck in question, find the flywheel, should be a larger disk with a belt around it. Carefully spin the flywheel with your finger so that it turns counter clockwise, if you were looking from the front of the unit. This should cycle the deck through its cycle until you hear a click. Try to open the door. If the door doesnt open, press the stop button WHILE turning the flywheel again. This should drop the head assy and disengage the door lock mechanism. Remember, make sure the deck is unplugged, and BE GENTLE. you may feel a little resistance as you turn the flywheel. A little is OK, just be careful. If the flywheel comes to a hard stop when you are turning it, then something is jammed and you need to take it to a repair shop. Good luck...Rob. In the future, please specify a make and model so we can better help you . Thanks !!!
