My mother gave me this unit 25 years ago, so I'd like to maintain it. It's a Panasonic KX-T2432 with incoming and outgoing tapes.
It's a great phone/answerer that's worked perfectly until a few days ago. It took a message and when I got home, I heard a loud constant clicking sound - a click that I hear when it starts and disengages the tape during recording. The clicking only stops now when the power is cut.
The tape has not disengaged and I can't move it. I managed to rewind a bit of it in case it was the tape, but it didn't help, so I guess it's the mechanism.
I've Googled and called places, but no one seems to offer last-century phone/answerer technology repairs.
SOMEBODY must. Any handymen or ideas out there? I'd like to keep it local.
Send me a PM.
