Problems With The Stereo

My 1995 Escort has a radio and tape deck. Overall, it's worked
great. But recently some tapes won't play. It's like they're not going
in all the way.
Neither the rewind or forward buttons will stay down. Sometimes
trying to hold them down at the same time seems to straighten things
out. Does anyone have a clue? Also, the owner's manual said not to use
120 minute tapes in the player. Did anyone dare try?

Sincerely,
Darren Thornton

Re: Problems With The Stereo

The reason for not using the 120 minute tapes is that the tape itself (I
believe it is made of mylar) is thinner than the tape used in 90s and 60s
(and, therefore, more susceptible to damage). The older Ford stereos weren't
the best units built and you are probably better off getting a
middle-of-the- road new deck and the appropriate adapter harness to make
installation painless.

I find nothing inferior about Ford products,
but I cannot say the same about your grammer.
