Radio Cassette Player Belt Turning, Only 1 Spool Turning in Play Mode
'80s Magnavox Cassette Radio Boombox: I went to verify the cassette player worked and the tape got stuck, play button was stuck and eject wouldn't work. I opened unit and eventually got buttons unstuck. Now have determined rewind and fast-forward work, the belt turns. In play mode I can see the belt turning but only the left spool is turning, counterclockwise. Thanks in advance for any help.
I'm sorry, I'm just a total novice. The right side spool is not turning and from online research, I think it is called the take-up spool. Initially when trying to play a tape, it seemed so much unraveled tape piled up on the take-up side until it jammed and seized. I've looked and can't see that there is a missing belt and haven't tried to get inside where gears are.
what drives the play spool also drives the take-up spool that starts out, but quickly stops the take up drive and the tape jams up as mentioned in the previous description by previous responder.
