Why can’t I rewind my cassette tapes?

Why can’t I rewind my cassette tapes?
When I try to rewind my cassette tapes only the little metal rod in the bottom right corner spins, and my left cassette dock prong does not spin when I try to rewind. How can I fix this?


"Hi @spencer11234

It may be a loose (worn) drive belt or a dirty pinch roller or capstan.

You may have to dis-assemble the radio to gain access the cassette deck to inspect the belt and clean the pinch roller and capstan.

If it is the belt, unfortunately I have been unable to locate a supplier of the part.

I found this supplier but it appears as though the belts are listed by cassette deck model and not the model number of the device they’re installed in.

Hopefully the cassette deck model number is printed somewhere on your cassette deck and you can locate a drive belt using the deck number"
