Kenwood KX-W8050 cassette deck problem

  1. Just got a Kenwood KX-W8050 dual cassette deck off eBay that the
    seller said had been tested and worked. When it arrived (poorly
    packed), Tape 1 didn't work at all--no motor sound, no play, record,
    or anything else. Tape 2 worked OK. When the power plug is first
    making contact with the outlet, or when it's jostled after being
    inserted, the reels and capstans on Tape 1 turn for about 2 seconds,
    then stop. So Tape 1 is apparently receiving power, but nothing is
    engaging when the play or other controls are operated.

    I have no electronic repair skills, so I'll return this unless it's
    something pretty simple to fix. But I'm hoping that something may
    have gotten knocked loose in shipment (since it supposedly worked
    before) that I can reattach--or it's something equally easy to fix.
    I've opened it up and checked connections, and everything looks
    properly attached. Anyone have an idea what the problem may be?

    Thanks -
  2. Return it. It needs belts, general maintenance, maybe even a motor.

  3. Thanks for the info. Back it goes.
