Sunsui cassete deck D-79R

My recently aquired Sansui cassete deck D-79R worked fine untill today. It has a "rumble" or raspy buzz that can be very easily felt with your hand. It doesen't matter wether it's running a tape or not. Any Ideas? Thank you,

It will have a dry bearing in the transport. Probably the capstan motor or the capstan flywheel. A drop(one) of 3 in 1 oil carefully applied to the bearing(dont get it on any belts or pulley drive surfaces) may help The rear bearing of the motor is harder to get to, but generally not the culprit. If you dont have a small oiler syringe to do this You may have to pull the motor assembly out, or the capstan flywheel retainer plate, and then remove the flywheel completely to do this. Clean the capstan shaft, belts and pulley drive surfaces while you have it pulled down with acetone. Good luck, feel free to follow up here with me if it gets ugly. :)

I own a Stanton T55 and I seem to have a problem making both speakers work with it. It is attached to an amp (Sansui A-910) and speakers (two Boston Acoustics A25). Yet when I listen to my vynils, only one...

Remove the wires to the cartridge (make a note of where they fit first). With your amp on, touch each wire (one at a time) with your finger. On one wire you should hear a buzz in the right channel, on another wire a buzz in the left. The two others should make hardly sound at all, or nothing. This test will prove the signal is getting to the amp. While testing make sure you move any RCA leads or plugs, to be certain they don't cut out.
If this checks out then replace the cartridge.
If it does not then you have a problem either with the connectors or and internal amp inside the turntable itself.

We have sunsui LCD SFL32HBM5 ROI,Demonstration & Installation Required

I am assuming you mean it is in the demonstration mode.
Use your remote, go into the menu, find "ON SCREEN SETTINGS" or "OSD SETTINGS"
The setting to turn off demo mode is in one of those most of the time. If it is not simply look through the menus until you find it. It's there somewhere I promise you.....

Hi, when I put a cassete in my tape deck TD-W315 the cassete runs very fast. It looks like a LP in 78 RPM? Does anybody can help me?

Check to see if the capstain roller is pressing against the capstain. Sometimes they get stuck or something has broke preventing it from pressing on the tape.

Need a remote control for Sunsui RV TDC2075 A

Try to get a UNIVERSAL multi remote if you are not able to get the original from the sansui dealer. The remote can be tuned accordingly to the set as instructed. You will be able to lock each of the function of the TV/DVD/VCR as you change the mode switch. Hoope you can look around for the best type/model in your city , try the spareparts accessories shop near to your place where all the electronic spares are available. hope this works. Good day

TEAC CX-370 Cassete Deck

Could be a worn out belt? The cassette loads it the drive down too much. Hence why it turns with no tape.

First try cleaning the heads with some electronics grade alcohol and a static free cleaning swab...although it sounds like the head may need alignment...if those two things do not work out for you, the capstan motor might be the culprit.

DHR- 1000

Recently repaired one of these with what appeared to be a power supply problem; found several defective capacitors on the drive board. The symptoms were similar to what you are seeing.
