Question about RCA AM/FM Stereo Cassette Recorder Radio/Cassette Boombox

RCA Boom Box, Cassette Player works improperly

When a cassette is being played it becomes entangled in the machine. I have to stop the machine, and pull cassette out. Only one side of the cassette player is turning. Is there a remedy to fix?

Thanks.......DT

This sounds like a dirty or sticky pinch roller - use a commercial cassette head cleaner - or ear but with a alcohol cleaner -

If the capston is not rolling the cassette forward this my be due to a broken belt - or may have just jumped off - power down the product and disconnet from the mains - then open it up - normaly the front come away undo the mounting screws from around the cassette mechanism normaly around 4 and carefuly look at the back there should normaly be 2 rubber band one to the capston and 1 to the pich roller the belt that may be broken is the smaller of the too. most cassette deck use the same size belt

Would need to replace the belts. Servicing it would include cleaning, lubricating, and new belts. Some units are not worth saving.

Reorded tapes only play out one speaker


check your cables to the units channel that doesn't work, for breaks. Does the cassette player play back a pre-recorded tape okay? if it doesn't there might be a internal fault.
Check the wires to the tape head to see if one is off.
