Supply Reel not moving in play mode.
So I recently picked up this cassette recorder/player from a second hand store. There were a few issues, at first it didn't play, but I heard the motor running and figured I needed to change the band/belt, which I did, I just used a rubber band the exact same size, not sure if this is a good fix, but it worked, the tape was playing...momentarily, then it started eating the tapes, which I also fixed, because it just needed a cleaning, and now, the only issues is...
the supply reel isn't moving when in play mode. It's a bit slow kind of stiff when rewinding, and is perfectly fine when being FF.
I'm honestly a complete amateur, any success I've had so far with it is because of my persistent tinkering. Does anyone think they could help?
Also, not sure if it's of any help, it's called the acousti-corder 900.
Is this a good question?
