Is there a replacement cassette mechanism assembly available for a JVC
I have a portable JVC PC-X101 BX with tuner, CD and cassette. The cassette mechanism will not function. It gets stuck. Fortunately the programming turns it off.
I got a copy of the service manual at: https://www.hifiengine.com/manual_librar... so I can describe what I see using the proper part definitions. I spent 20 years as a Toyota mechanic but none trying to fix boom boxes.
The kick arm (52) that rides on the clutch assembly (56) is hitting the metal head base set (13) preventing the clutch assembly from shifting from left to right. I included a couple of images showing the point of contact. The first image clearly shows the kick arm stuck against the plate. The second image is for perspective.
Based on the parts drawings I am not sure what is actually broken. I thought lock arm A (29) was broken but may not be the case. As I manually drive the gears the lock arm hangs up.
The service manual does not list a part number for the cassette mechanism assembly. Does anyone know if there is one available or is this a lost cause?
Is this a good question?
