So, this is new to me.
I have a DCC600 that already has a new belt and is also thoroughly clean(ed) and that I use quite a lot. So this week I replaced the pinch rollers with new ones from the DCCMuseum. After I put the mechanism back into the machine, there was a strange problem:
When I load a new tape, the mechanism scans side A for a few seconds, like normal, but then reverses and does the exact same thing on side B.
Then, when I press PLAY it plays for a few seconds and then stops with no audio. Same if I try on side B.
REWINDing or FASTFORWARDing too. It winds for a seconds and then stops. I can try that over and over again.
I have not even been near anything other than the pinch rollers during the procedure. I checked the cables, but they are fitted ok. I took the mechanism out to check and put it back in again, but still the same problem.
What could be the case here? I’m at a loss atm.
