Hello. I was hoping someone can help me with this. I replace the belts but now have it back together and nothing happens. Any suggestions. I think the belts are on right and all the gears appear to turn when you push by hand. Any help would be appreciated I’m starting to bang my head against the wall

Try turning the flywheel by hand to see if you can reset it manually.

Yes, the deck needs resetting. 

 

The pulley got a flat belt and a square belt. Hope you installed both belts.

 

It appears like the wires were touching the pause button. Pause light is on.

 

Push the white buttons for play after releasing the pause.

I turned the flywheel by hand and it clicked so maybe it reset. I can push play stop rewind and they seem like they stay in when pushed however the pause light still stays on when I hook the panel back up. When I press the pause button it stays depressed even when pushing again. The only way to release the pause is to reach in underneath and do it.

There are lots of pics here. I also put so many pics.

When you release the pause, is the play working?

 

I mentioned before...... the wires near the plug needs to be well tucked it. It is somehow touching the pause button when you put the cover back.

 

It needs some patience to tuck it in nicely.

 

 

 

 

 

Push those wires to the right corner and push it aside so they won't get over the pause button.

Even when I release the pause the play doesn’t work. Ill try again tomorrow to see if I can look at the pause better and make sure the wires are tucked good. Thanks again for the help. Great pictures btw. Now time to watch episode 5 of mandalorian with baby Yoda.

I know it sounds stupid but have you checked the motor itself?.

Take the deck out and see play works. It could be something very simple. Check if the belts are put the right way. In my case I only struggled with the tucking of wire and learn how to put it back with the front feather touch panel out. Without that panel/cover off...…. I suffered. Learned it the hard way. I have his cousin 8600RM that is also like this model. I replaced belts and all.

It’s possible. It doesn’t spin when I hit play. How would I test it?

I notice in your pic (as said by northerner). That the middle belt is a different path than I put it. I went under the wheel on the left and over the second one. I think you have pics of the belt doing that on another thread so I followed that. Do you know which one is the correct path? Or are the 2 models different?Attached File  EE10298C-6EAF-4C43-A1FE-C1B3C5726795.png   527.46K   2 downloadsAttached File  28374848-1A5D-4821-BAB1-77BB3870BE69.png   708.53K   4 downloads

The second pic is how I have my belt path, it appears right I think? I’m wondering if it has some to do with the pause. The light wasn’t on before I took it apart, only the play light was lit. Also When I press pause it stays depressed even upon pushing pause again or any other buttons. I have to turn the black gear under the flywheel just very slightly to get the pause to release, although after doing that the play still doesn’t work so maybe it’s just a coincidence.

Nice pics thanks. It appears that everything is the same as In your pics. Everything else on this box functions nice so it would be a shame not to get her going. I think maybe I’ll take the belts off and start again and see what happens 😤

I used a 4.0” belt for the small bottom belt instead of a 4.3” one. Do you think that would make a difference?

Does anybody know if this plug needs to be connected for the tape deck to play? I’m trying to test and nothing is happening but I’m not sure if the two plugs in from besides the touch control plug need to be plugged in?Attached File  2A51BA23-9803-475A-8C7A-8466A2B24100.jpeg   91.3K   0 downloads

That is for the speakers. No need to connect to check the deck function.
