Hello there.
I found this cassette in a small market.
I don´t have the power adaptor. It says it´s a DC 9V 1,5W but i don´t know if the center it´s negative o positive.
I look on the net but couldn´t find anything. If someone has one of this could you tell me the polarity?
I suppose it´s not working but i just want to try it. I know a can test it with batteries but i don´t have them and don´t want to buy for nothing
Thanks

Probably just a rubber belt issue. Fixable, so probably worth selling it as defective or repairing yourself. But IMO it should not be recycled.

Oh no. I never recycle any item with the MSX logo on It.
I'll open and check inside.

I checked without the MSX.
Forward goes Ok.
Rewind goes and stop after few second.
Play do nothing at the moment

As Zett said, you need to issue "motor on" command on your MSX to enable the playback. Otherwise it won't work.
