753EA597-7DD8-4D1A-91FA-0713CA105176.jpeg I just picked this baby up today for free from a friend of mine along with original OM and accessories! It apparently stops after a couple seconds of play. Could be belt related but will check it out and hope to resolve the issue and include it with my living room setup!

Just cracked her open to take a look see. 40+ years of dust and a missing tape counter belt and a rather loose capstan drive belt. As with many tape decks if the counter doesn't spin the play stops so I am betting it is the missing counter belt that is the culprit. At least I'm hoping it's that easy. Ordered a set and we will see where that gets me but everything seems to be working, i.e., lights, fan, etc.:dance:dance:dance

Working or not, free is an awesome deal. Congrats. I’m sure you’ll have it working in no time.
Beautiful deck. There’s nothing like the look of a RTR turning and playing tunes.

All you need is the Pioneer SX 2000 tube receiver and you are good to go! I actually know a guy who has one locally and it’s looking for a new home. :D
