Hi, I have a DCC600 which I bought new ! years ago and has given me good service, until now.
When I load a cassette (either audio or DCC) the take up spool is not taking up the tape as it is pushed passed the capstan, resulting in a loop of tape hanging out of the cassette.
I have replaced both of the two (visible) drive bands (in/out mechanism & capstan drive) without any effect on my issue.
I am reluctant to totally dismantle the tape drive mechanism without any assembly drawings as I am very likely going to re-assemble it incorrectly causing more damage.
Does anyone have a copy of the tape drive mechanism assembly drawings or can point me to the cause of the annoying issue??
