DCC600 not playing

Can anyone help please. After replaceing belts on my philips DCC600 and repairing power supply switch , when i put tape in and press play the mech engages capstans spin then it stops and wont play , ff or rw.
What am i missing please. It was working years ago when last used.
Both capstans spin freely.
Mech engages.
Head moves to tape but cant see and tape movment.



You’ll have to take a closer look to see if the capstans and pinch rollers are turning.

It’s also possible that you broke the infamous 2g gear; it was originally made of soft plastic and it goes brittle and breaks. The DCC Museum has replacements at Gear set 2nd Generation « DCC Museum

Thanks for that i will take alook at pinch rollers and gear.
I know capstans are running as ive seen them spinning.

Cheers for that.


After dismantaling deck i found the gear drive with teeth missing. So will be ordering replacement shortly as well as new rollers, might as well while decks in bits.

Many thanks for the help.

Great pictures of the problem. Unfortunately all the 2nd gen suffer from this.

The new gear will solve the problem.
