    Cassette decks do not work, just makes clicking noises, will not FF or RW
    either. not in pause mode either, and have cleaned tape transport mechanisms
    and heads.
    Have come to the conclusion that drive belts may have come off pulley or need
    replacing perhaps? Seems a bit strange that both decks are inoperative?

    Can anyone either confirm or make any suggestions/thoughts please before I
    start taking it apart?!!!

    If new belts are required, any suggestions where I may purchase them please as
    this is the first time I have had this problem other than with a very old Sony
    TC377 Reel to Reel that I repaired myself!

    1 motor driving 2 decks is quite common, "infection" perishing many rubber
    bands etc enclosed in the same enclosed space is also quite common.
    I've cut my own bands for the last few years
