Hello I have a 488 MKII that was working just fine until suddenly this annoying light clicking sound began once cassette was inserted ... I think it is a capstan or capstan belt that went bad any idea where to buy replacement parts thanks to all ... HC.

Reel deep thoughts...

Does it otherwise operate normally? Does it do it with all cassettes? Since the cassette shell on a Philips format Compact Cassette acts as the majority of the tape path (guides, rollers, etc), sometimes a cassette can be noisy…clicking, etc. obviously if it does it with all cassettes that’s another story.

Also, I hope you are using nothing longer than a C60 cassette?
