Nakamichi cassette deck 1 help needed please
Hi I have a nakamichi cassette deck 1, just went to play a tape today , it started then got slow quite fast and then stopped. It does fast forward and rewind fine, but will not play. I took the tape out and then pushed play again,the top right roller is going around but it didn't look like the bottom rollers were going around. I took the top off, thinking it may be a broken belt. the belt is still intact, but does seem very loose, if I gave the right hand roller a little push , then it started to turn along with the belt, I then put a tape back in and pushed play , the right hand roller stopped. I also noticed that the left hand roller was not turning, in both situations, it is free but not turning with or without a tape in.
Could a very loose belt cause this issue ?
Any help greatly appreciated.
