You can take it to a radio repair center, or you can try to purchase a used one from a wrecking yard or E-bay, or go to someone like car toys or best buy and have the entire unit replaced with something newer.


Probably have to go with a upgrade

Paul Whitlock

run a tape head cleaner with rubbing alcohol first - that solves a lot of tape issues, and do it regular and it will last quite a while

Mark Langolf

Try Pauls suggestion if you can actually find casset tape cleaning kit anywhere. If it plays then stops then plays again it may just be the quality of tape your playing thru it. They do wear out fast especially if left in cars left out in the sun.

I've been using a cassette adaptor to listen to my music on my phone and for hands free calls. I didn't explain it well yesterday

Ive had ok luck spraying inside with electrical cleaner spray of some kind -- often it is just dust that hangs them up

I'll try the cassette cleaner if I find one and the electrical cleaner spray. Thanks
