I'm having a real issue with the one in my car.  It often will, upon insertion of a cassette, switch sides multiple times and spit the cassette out.  Quite often when it does this it will try to play the cassette and an extremely loud screeching noise can be heard over the speakers, which can happen multiple times before the tape gets spit out.  I think it may have damaged one of my tapes, but I haven't tried it on another player yet.  After doing the screeching thing multiple times, on a certain track the sound gets garbled and sratchy, with the music faint, and it won't play that track for more than a few seconds and before that stated happening would refuse to rewind to the beginning of the track.

Anyone have any idea what's wrong with this thing and whether or not there is a fix for this issue?  Also, anyone know what stores carry head cleaner tapes.  The electronics stores I've tried don't seem to have them anymore.

It needs a new set of belts and drive tires.



99 percent chance that's the sum and total of what it needs,  plus of course a good thorough cleaning.

Is that something that would require someone with technical knowledge and specilized tools to do?  I wouldn't even know how to get my radio out, much less disassemble it and replace components.

I've looked at the yards when going to get other parts for my car, and whenever I find a car that would have the right radio the radio is always gone or it is completely trashed.  Seems like one of the first things taken out of cars.

It would help if it was someone who was familiar with them, yeah.



You really are just better off finding a working replacement, it will probably be cheaper and less of a hassle.

Hello the 80's called and wants their car stereo back

The other problem I'm having is the inability to use adapters.  It spits them all out, even after disabling the cut tape detector (which requires me to disconnect my battery to turn off the radio, since the power button doesn't work; to turn it back on, I have to insert a tape).  Would this problem be due to what you guys are saying the issue is regarding playing actual tapes.

It's not terribly technical to take one apart but it's a pain usually with lots of little screws etc.  Plus you usually have to take the radio mostly apart to get to the transport.

It sounds to me like a label came off a tape and got stuck inside there but you never know till you open it up.

I successfully fixed one with that problem by applying a vacuum cleaner nozzle to the tape port while holding the dust door open .

96 Lumina.

I can't afford to replace the radio.  Plus how am I going to play my tapes in the car without a cassette player?  

Actually, come to think of it, I could probably try plugging my Walkman into an AUX jack on a newer radio.

In any case, I have quite a few cassettes.  Miam Vice vols. 1 and 2, multiple volumes of MTV Party-to-Go, Dire Straits Brothers in Arms, Genesis Abacab, Best of Santana, and more.

Chevy.  I'm not sure if they use the same radios or different ones, or if there is any compatibility.  I know Chevy installed the tape players as late as the early to mid-2000s.

Pull the tape player.   Wire in a 3.5mm audio input jack in it's place.   Buy a $35 sansa zip mp3 player and a 16 gig memory card for it.

When I bought my truck it came with a CD and tape player.  It's probably around the last year that tape players were still an option.  I cherish that thing.   It's allowed me to revisit the music of my youth in the old cassettes I've saved.  A lot of dubs and stuff that's out of print.

Hope you get it fixed.

Maybe someone has a lot of tapes? Heck, I still have some floating around I occasionally listen to. I even have, GASP, a direct drive Technics turntable floating around somewhere.

OP, found numerous wet type cassette tape head cleaners on Amazon. I'd try one of those before ripping it all apart.

Vinyl would be alright, except you'd need a laser pickup instead of a needle.

I'll keep the tapes.

Funny thing about the children, though.  I'm an Assistant Scoutmaster and I was driving some of the boys back from a backpacking trip we had just finished and I was having trouble playing one of my Dire Straits tapes because of the problem in the OP and so I ejected it and handed it to the boy in the passenger seat and asked him to put it in the case for me and he couldn't figure out how to put it in the case.  I had to guide him through it.  First time he had ever handled a cassette tape.

I didn't realize new radios were that cheap.  Last time I went with a friend to look at radios they cost a lot more, not including installation costs.

OP, do you own a cell phone?

How would you compare using a phone while driving versus operating a cassette player and changing cassettes while driving?  I'm guessing the only reason there isn't a massive effort to ban cassetting while driving is that no one thinks there's anyone left doing it.
