Most likely, rubber wheels and such have become solid.
Taking the cover off and watching it work might verify that.

Subject: [CRTech] Tascam 202 MKIII Question
Hi, CRTech: I powered up a Tascam 202 MKIII dual cassette deck that I haven’t used in years. Both decks will play forward (a-side) and backwards (b-side) perfectly and the REC function seems to work normally. Unfortunately,
neither deck will FFWD or REV. When I press the << or >> buttons, I hear a click…and then nothing. I find it odd that BOTH decks are acting the exact same way so I am wondering if there is some setting that is preventing FFWD and REV. I have tapped
the INTRO CHECK and SYNC REV buttons but nothing seems to happen. When I tap BLANK SCAN, the words “BLANK SCAN” lights up on the on the display.
That’s all the troubleshooting I’ve done so far. Any thoughts?
