I have 2 cassette decks ( Yamaha KX-R470 and JVC TD-V531 ) both decks have similar issues when pressing PLAY. The Yamaha will usually go to FF, The JVC will toggle the MONITOR function from SOURCE to TAPE, after 3 or 4 tries, it will start to play. Any suggestions?

Tape decks need to be serviced periodically to stay running properly.

Both are logic(computer) controlled.
Guessing caps surrounding logic chips failing or maybe power supply feeding those chips failing.
Service required.

Probably both from 80's. Caps may be good target, if I can find replacements, certainly worth a try. Can I assume the caps would be connected to the ICs' +5 vdc pins?
