Sometimes the replacement belts slip too. I can do some repairs but it has been a very long time since I stripped a tape deck.

Anyone got any ideas?


Realistically, it's probably not worth bothering with.

well it seems to have resurrected itself. I kept on fast forwarding and the rewind started to come back. Its been succesfully been working all afternoon. As suspected one of the idlers must have got gummed up through lack of use. Result.

I dunno, certainly worth a few pennies to somebody at the moment

well it's got new belts fitted and running smoothly again. Was a great tape deck in it's time. i suspect one of the idlers on the rewind side was gummed up as it kept on tripping the off mechanism. In fact the rewind and fast forward are now considerably faster than when it started working again. Obviously needs lubricating. I'll take a punt on ebay (£1 final fees today)

i had one of these - it started buzzing - it took ages to isolate the transformer successfully from the chassis etc. I put it on gumtree and some chap in France contacted me and bought it. Apparently nad stuff is rare and expensive in france. So if you end up putting on ebay you might consider international postage.

A look at that eBay listing proves my point. One sold for £53 fully working. Another in need of repair £51...

Worth selling...sure...but worth fixing to sell? There are easier ways to earn £2.
