Advice needed - Tape Deck Problem
« on: January 14, 2015, 08:14:51 PM »
I have a Sanyo CD/Cassette player combo and want to use the cassette player, however, when ever the cassette player is played, there is a very loud humm that eminates from the speakers, and obviously one can't hear what's being played.
What can cause this, and is it repairable at low cost ?
Thank you,

Might well be corrosion on the rec/play switch.
Activate 'record' mode a few times (you'll need a non-valuable rec-enabled cassette) and see if it fixes it.
If so, a bit of contact cleaner in that switch (done from INSIDE, not outside) will make for a long term repair.
