    I keep having this problem even after i cleaned the heads. The
    cassette will not play or even rewind. I put a cassette in and it
    starts for a couple seconds and then stops. Even if i try to FF or RW
    it will not move. When i eject the cassette some of the tape has been
    pulled out of the case. Only about 2-3 inches of the tape is pulled
    out. It never breaks the tape or makes in unuseable. This used to
    happen every once in a while but now it happens every time.

    The transport mechanism is stalling on load, and failing to completely
    de-spool on abort.
  3. They had a lot of bad capstan motors on these, and the half-load arm would
    stick from bad lubrication. There was a replacement bearing that could be
    used to repair the cap motor if the coils hadn't been totally scraped
    through, but that part is now discontinued. The whole capstan motor may
    still be available.

    The half load arm gets stuck, due to the grease drying up! Mark it's
    exact location, remove, regrease,
    & adjust it back to it's proper height. Look here! Dani.

    What kind of grease do i use? Is there a special kind?

    The type of grease you use is not very critical..... the problem is
    that the old grease congealed and now the arm is frozen or stiff.
    Once you get the arm to move freely, even an oil lubricant will
    work. A very light grease would be good but again this is not
    critical.... just get the arm to move freely.
    Hopefully the arm is not bent or gear teeth are not stripped.
    Be certain that you get the height exactly right once the arm is
    reinstalled. Measure carefully before removing it.

    I greased it up and the first tape seems to work fine. Thx, everyone.
