    Hi,

    I have no real electronics experience, but recently changed the belts on an Aiwa 450F tape deck. It seemed relatively straight forward, but now there is no power when i turn on.

    What could i have done and how do i fix it please?

    Check any cables and connectors for correct fit.

    You checked the fuses?
    Do you have a meter to measure voltages?

    I would suggest taking it a part again to re-trace your steps.
    Check connectors orientation and that they are seated correctly.
    This is obviously no coincidence.

    Hi I dont have a meter to check sorry. I have also taken the main internal cassette player section out which holds the belts and replaced, plus checked all connectors orientation - all seems fine. Could I have damaged the mother board somehow? Maybe frazzled it somehow?

    Highly unlikely the board got damaged.
    Possibly a wire or connection broke while taking it apart.
    Unfortunately, you will need a multimeter or some kind of continuity tester to check.

    Thanks Martin. Using a tester is outside my skillset! Guess my only option is to sell on ebay as spares!

    Well, you can sell it with β€˜new’ belts fitted. :)
    Shame really.

    Did you remember to plug it back into the wall outlet? ;)
