Question ID: 50469
I have a Weltron 2001 model 8 track player. The radio and reception are great, but the 8 track does not work. The "track changing" light changes through the cycle of 1 through 4 when you push the track button, but there does not appear to be any movement of the tape. I'm trying to find out how to best fix a player, and am looking for direct information about this player or am willing to reference how to fix another player. I am iterested in a web site which provides info on how to fix which might include photographs of the "innards" of an 8 track system. I am not interested in how to fix the tapes or tape cartridges. The more that the instruction is "step by step", the better. I do not expect you to give me the instructions (although that would be okay), but good reference web sites would fulfill the requirement of payment.
