Default Predator caller Cassette Issue

I have a Johnny Stewart Predator Caller, similar to this one:



2 years ago i was using it while coyote hunting, I shut it off for about 5 minutes and went to turn it back and it hasnt worked since then. Im wanting to get back into Coyote (predator) hunting and Im kinda stuck. I have about 10 Cassette tapes that I essentially cant use because my player took a crap. Does anyone know how I would even go about fixing it? I have no clue what's wrong with it.

Ive looked on eBay for a used tape player, but Im not paying upwards of $100.00 for one that comes with the tapes I already have. I guess I could always use a radio that has a cassette player but it wont be near as loud as the caller.

Anybody have any suggestions on what I could do?

Take it apart and look for dry solder connections, blown capacitors, etc. Look for anything abnormal. You could try plugging it in with the covers off, and run a test light through all the circuits to see what's gettin power and what isn't, but I don't condone that because I have no idea if it's safe.

Well I took it apart today and didnt find anything out of the ordinary. I was hoping to find a wire off or something easy like that but nothing.

And little did I know, about a year ago my dad purchased one of these:


Im going to try it out tomorrow and see what happens.
