    I have a DCC900 digital cassette deck. It plays analogue tapes fine but
    suddenly stopped reading digital tapes cleanly. I don't think it is a
    serious fault because it will occasionally sense a tape and play a bit
    but it sufferes dropouts.

    It played well when it was put away. I dragged it out just to play with
    it a bit (gone retro :) ). So the time sitting idle 6-7 years seems to
    be a factor perhaps.

    Does anyone know the likely cause of this. Or even a list of common faults?

    Are there service docs available on the 'net?

    Regards Wilfred

    Are you sure it's not the tapes ?

    I've got a DCC too and the tapes self-erase after a few years.

    No, not sure the tapes are good. I will try making a new recording on an
    unused tape. I am still inclined to think the tape transport mechanism
    is in need of some attention. The analogue playback on closer listening
    is "muddy". One channel is lower level a bit. Quite a bit actually.
