Cassette Repairs…YES WE DO !… fix all types of old cassette decks…and modern ones too.

Google rightly brought you here as we are one of the last surviving companies that still do cassette repairs……so read on.

Cassette Repairs – Full workshop facilities on the premises. I don’t send any equipment away for repair.
With 40 years experience, I’ve seen just about every Make & Model of cassette deck…and most Reel-Reels…and some 8 tracks too!

I’ll have a go at any Tape deck and have a very good success rate… but cassette mechanisms are the toughest to get spot on…many tyres, belts, and a thousand fiddly parts, and this year has seen loads coming out of the attic in appalling states….so…

I’d like to point out that a fair percentage just can’t be economically got going now.. or if they can…it takes hours & hours to get right.

Every one takes at least 2 hours fiddling, so expect maybe a £60 cost. I need to spend this amount of time to make sure I find all the faults and that they will be reliable. Also you can expect a couple of extra weeks turnaround time as I source parts and repeatedly final final test it to make sure its ok.

Cassette decks have many rubber belts and clutches and drive tyres…and pinch rollers…all of which once over 10-20 years old will be like chewing gum. Luckily though, the rest of the mechanics, although complicated, were well engineered and will usually perform again once given new belts and a service. A service is always quite time consuming on a cassette deck, particularly with the old ones..ie pre 1985
Contact us for advice, giving the make/model details and let’s take it from there…

Cassette Heads… wear out, or get dirty from the oxide on tapes clogging them up. If your deck has done many miles, the sound will go dull as a channel has physically worn into the heads top surface. (inspect with a torch to see for yourself).
New heads are rarely available, though I have an impressive collection of spare mechanisms that I can rob for spares…see pic..

We do offer a Mail order repair service- Contact us first please to discuss, then send your repair to our 92 Manchester rd address, packaged suitably for transport. (Please Ring for advice on how to pack a turntable! as they’re easily damaged). Companies like Interparcel.com will send UPS to collect/deliver for around £10 each way – a safe way to transport goods.

By all means email me …. andy @ hifi.repair with any enquiries
