1979 rca vdt600

At first, it would rewind and fast forward, but not play. I replaced belts, and now it plays tapes. I got a belt kit that said it was for an RCA VDT600 (and others), but the smaller of the 2 belts that drives the counter was way too large. (and there were multiple duplicates of two of the other belts - not that that was a problem) So with that 1 original belt still slipping in there, the counter won't run.

The other problem it has is that the clock is barely lit up. At first I thought it was completely dead, but looking closely I can just see it on. And I tried setting it, and saw that it functions otherwise. Much like in the other thread I just started about the Zenith clock radio, is this likely to be the display itself or something else? And again I'm going to have to dig up a schematic if I have to start poking around.
The quality goes in, before the cat goes on!!

Most likely caps in the inverter section for the vaccuum flourescent display. MCM Electronics used to sell kits to rebuild these.
