Philips DCC 600. After replaceing both belts, pinch rollers and the dreaded 2nd gen gear my unit still wont work.
It knows there is a tape in digital or analoge but will not stay in ffw or rrw or play. Head engages then shuts off.
Ffw or rrw moves tape as long as you keep pressing the buttons.
Am i missing something or am i slogging a dead horse.
I followed all dr. Dcc videos now im stuck.
Well managed to get it to ffw and rrw ok but still wont play, just shuts off. I couldnt try it before because gear was broken thats why i orded new one from yourselfs.
Had mech in my hand to see whats moving or not and all motors are running ( captans ) new gear moves into place and runs.
Im guessing sensor ( tape end one ) so it thinks tape has ended because when play is pressed and it shuts off it changes direction and tries that way.
Mech apart again. Hahaha
Tried everything all looks fine.
Fast forward and rewind ok now but still wont play.
If i use a DCC tape it sqeals before stopping.
Anologue plays for 2 sec then stops , switches sides does same then stops.
All wires and switches preasents , motors running, engage smooth. Lost now.
I have a sensor fault on supply reel, if i apply preasure to the board the playing will play without issues.
As for the squeak with Dcc taps i watched your youtube video and yes felt pad was dirty in the tape.
Playback sound awsom, just goto fix contact problem and machine is fixed.
