I have a Jvc pc-5 boom box which i have had since new. I have just retrieved it from the garage and it all works except the cassete deck plays the cassettes but at about half speed. :sad: Can anyone tell me how to cure this and what i would need to do this. I do not have any manuals so do not know how to get to any of the parts.
Any advice would be appreciated as it has a wonderfull sound. shocked the life out of my teenage daughters. :thumbsup:

Welcome aboard, Chris! :cool: Here are links to some PC-5 manuals:



One is around 20MB and the other is less than 2MB. I can't remember if either is the Service Manual.

I'm sure we have some PC-5 owners out there who can offer more assistance.

did you ever get the cassette deck working?  I had to replace all of the rubber belts on mine.  I have two PC-5 JVCs.....cheers!

Look on the back of the cassette deck motor to see if there's a black rubber plug usually it's an opening with x that you can poke a screwdriver into and there's a screw that turns and adjust the motor speed.
