Sony TC-630 Stereo Tapecorder
I have a Sony TC-630 Stereo Tapecorder that belongs to my father. He is in the nursing home now and cannot help me with it. I got it out awhile back so that I could play some of his old reels. I can get it to rewind and fastforward, but when I put it on play it will not do anything. The tape does not turn. I went to our local radio station and they have an old reel to reel player simular to my father's but a newer model. It had been years since anyone had tried to work their player. Only one woman knew anything at all about it there and she tried and tried to get it to play and could not. It did the same thing as my father's. It would rewind and fastforward, but not play. The tape would not turn when she pushed the play button. When she took the tape off the player and pushed play with no reels on it the things would spin that the tape reels go on. I figure there has got to be some little something we are not doing right. Can anyone help me please?
