简介

You recently bought a cassette-to-aux adaptor at a local drug store so you can play music from your MP3 player in your older car. However, when you insert the cassette into the older car's cassette player, the cassette player flips the cassette continuously. This guide will show you the steps to fixing the auto flip problem.

  1. Unscrew all the screws around the cassette tape box. Place screws somewhere safe so you do not lose them. Models, screw locations, and screw sizes may vary.

  2. Slowly remove the cover of the cassette box. Take a photo of the insides of the cassette box so it can guide when you are reassembling the cassette box. Do not worry if you open the cassette box upside down (shown in 2nd photo) it is easy to correct; simply put the case back on, flip it over (shown in 3rd photo) and pull the new front side off (1st photo again).

  5. Make sure all electrical circuitry and gears that were not removed are in their correct location. Any other gears inside the cassette box, really aren't necessary. So feel free to remove them if the cassette is making too much noise (shown in 2nd photo).

    • Edit 3/14/2019: All cars are different. Many people in the comments have had luck keeping the center gears in the cassette and removing the interface gears. And also vice versa. Play around with it! If you can get it to work, awesome! If not, then try something else. Don't give up until you have your music playing in your car! Cheers!

    Thank you so much! I bought an adapter, and thought I'd wasted the money. Thanks to your guide that wasn't the case, I can now enjoy my music in my car!

    Hi Rusty, yea :/ this guide doesn’t work in every case. There are so many factors going on behind the scenes in cassette players that it’s any wonder they worked in the first place. I’m sorry it didn’t work for you. Look into other ways of playing your music: low power FM radio broadcasters, Aux-to-CD adaptors (heard of them, never seen them), or just replacing the whole shebang. Good luck and cheers!

    Jonathan Falco -

    after I’ve removed all the gears it simply spits out the adapter. How do I fix this?

    Depending on the model you have All you need is the two springs or flex board holding in the convertor piece get rid of all the other junk. And it will work fine. Needs to look like the last picture bare bones of a cassette with the digital piece replacing the ribbon. Works a treat.

    I was having the flip side issue too. Whilst giving my dad an aux in an old civic esi vtec. That accompanied with a jabra drive visor mount Bluetooth and a 12v USB and he's set for summer weekends with the roof off. Hate the car myself as I don't fit.

    And for the price you can get these ya may as well not worry bout losing parts. Paid less than two quid.

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order, but do not replace the gears you removed.

It might have to do with the stereo in your car. When I made this guide, I was experiencing the problem in my 2000 Nissan Xterra, but my own guide didn’t help. Some stereos are just broken, like mine was. To be completely honest, I had no idea this guide would even work for people, like it is. Sorry it didn’t help fix your problem. I would suggest getting a new stereo installed in your car. If it’s an older car, you may be able to do it <$100 for a decent stereo. Cheers mate!

Worked perfectly for me, thanks for putting this guide together.

Worked for me. I used to buy these things new every couple of years. Glad I did not throw all the old ones out

Worked perfectly for me. I used to buy a new Phillips adapter every few years or have to return them.

Looks like a double post but still happy it worked!

Bought an older car just for Ubering. I needed to play music from my phone and when I bought a tape deck to mp3, it was flipping back and forth. I would have been s.o.l. if I didn't come across your page. Now I can Uber. Thank you for this post!

Shane Shapiro - 回复

Enjoy the Uber while you can. The self driving hive mind is just around the corner. haha cheers!

You should only remove the gear that has the rubber o-ring on it and the small gears that bridge that to the main sprockets. Keep the 2 sprockets and the gear between them. Most cassette players have a part that checks to see if the 2nd sprocket is turning. In a normal cassette the 2nd sprocket turns thanks to the 1st sprocket pulling on the tape which is wound around the 2nd. In these adapter that happens by the 1st sprocket turning the middle gear which turns the 2nd.

Good call! Thanks oldtech!

Jonathan Falco -

Thanks oldtech. I had removed all of the gears and my player would eject it out…by adding the top 3 back in it now works great.

Skyhigh - 回复

Thanks for this article. I have a 2000 oddysey and the tip did not work at first when removing all the gears. However I put back all the gears except the ones you said to remove for auto flip and it works. So thank you again. It is a bit nosiy due to the gears I could not remove but at least it works now.

After reading some of the comments that others had similar experiences maybe you can update the article to mention it.

Kudos to you for getting me to do so. :)
