Putting Double Belt Resolved A Perennial Problem In NAD6100 Tape Deck
This set keeps visiting me at-least twice in an year for tape dragging and auto stopping, each time of which, what I did was replacing the belt. But this time I decided to put an end to this. I pulled out the mechanism and put two flat belts on it.
Since this deck used two motors, one for capstan and another for take-up, fast forward and rewind and did not use any belts, chances of failure on that side were remote.
Then tried playing a cassette. It worked very well. I let two or three cassettes play A & B sides keeping the mechanism on top of the deck:
After ensuring that it was now perfect, I fit the mechanism back and again ran the deck for some more time.
After ensuring that it was ok, I fixed the top cover and delivered it to my friend, who is very elder to me and a well-wisher and promoter of my hobby!
Satisfaction always was ready to jump to the bag and I allowed it to do so happily!
