: Casset Problems

12-02-06, 08:51 PM
I just got replacement OEM radio for my 93 deville no bose. The radio works fine, but the casset player does not. It auto reverses like 4 times then ejects the tape. I know my old radio's casset player worked, because the few times it turned on, i could play cassets. Thru disassembling the old radio, i realized the casset mechanism is an easy thing to swap. I am reluctant to swap it incase i screw something up in the new one, but it would be nice to have a working casset player. Based on the problem in the new one, do you think swapping the mechanism would be a cure for the problem?

I say do it if you are pretty sure about what you have to do.

But I don't know if it is the mechanism or something electrical in the headunit. But it does sound like swapping it would help.

did the swap, and it fixed the problem. Now, for the first time since i bought the car 2 (long, boring) months ago, i finally have a working radio/casset player.:thumbsup:

Problem #1....it's almost 2007 and your still using cassests? Underclassmen in high school don't even know what cassettes are these days lol.

mp3s dont skip either and you can take your ipod with you OUT of your car...

If I burn my mp3 cd fast enough it skips! :(

I love cassettes. Very durable in my view. Only real wear-down is the tape stretching, but that would take hours and hours of play.
