re: GXC-735D

i am trying to restore this deck the fuses on power board were blown i put new one, deck turns on but looks like motor does not have enough power to play tape ff and rev works but when i press play it moves slowly then stops, any clues????

re: GXC-735D

Open the deck and if you see the motor spinning then replace the idler tire rubber ..it is a lot of work to get to it but it is definitely worth it. If motor is not spinning that it could mean there is some electrical issue with it and you need to troubleshoot it.

re: GXC-735D

Be careful where you get your belts from. I have had the same issue after receiving the wrong capstan belt size. If the belt is even slightly tighter than it should be it will drag down the motor and you will have slow play response.
