Hi Boomer's can anyone advise, I have a Sharp WF-939, I not to long ago restored this as not much was working well all was perfect until some weeks ago I found tape deck 1 started to have a delay when you press play, normally it's instantaneous but started being like a couple of seconds but has gotten worse, if its left a day then it takes a good 10 seconds before it goes into play mode, hit stop and play several times it gets better until its within a second or two, but next day same again, FF & RW perfectly fine, Auto reverse and auto stop perfect, tape deck 2 no issues, both have had new belts only around 8 months ago, any ideas out there, these deck arnt electric are they?? what am I missing 😱😱😱

Sounds to me like it could be a dodgy connection on a switch which is engaged when pressing play?

I haven't looked at the schematic but thats the best place to start to be honest.

Could be issue with motor or tight belt or bad pinch roller. There are quite few things that can cause this issue.
