Panasonic RX FT500 Cassette Player Making a Clicking Noise

When I play, fast forward or rewind the cassette player, a clicking sound comes out of the on board speakers. This happens with and without a tape inserted. If the player has had a few days off then it might not click for a few hours, but in time it will, and then it will eventually become more regular until it reaches a click every 3 seconds or so.

ANSWERS:

"Hi @bazmaclean,

Don’t know the answer but here’s a link to the service manual that may help.

The schematic may help you to isolate where the noise is coming from. The schematic is a bit hard to use as it is split over three pages

If it only occurs when the motor is running but not when using the radio function for example then perhaps there is feedback from the motor circuit getting into the audio circuit somehow. Just what I think may be happening and not what I know is ;-)"
