Hi and welcome to the site, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, what seems to be wrong with the Pioneer CT-W103? ...what symptoms are exhibited?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
It powers up but the drive wheels on both decks will not turn
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Is there a manual available?
Expert:  Louie replied 9 months ago.

Only an electronic copy of the repair / Service Manual (not the User nor the Owner's Manual).

Would a LINK to where it can be downloaded from serve your need please ?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
If that is all available it will have to do I would think the model and serial # given should be sufficient for a satisfying result!
Expert:  Louie replied 9 months ago.

The described symptom would almost always point to a belt issue.

Expert:  Louie replied 9 months ago.

The Service Manual includes an exploded parts diagram detailing belt location and a parts list.

Please click HERE.

The manual is in a Portable Document Format (PDF) file and can be viewed in most web browser. Click on the link to open the file or right click then select “Save As…” to download the file. It would require Adobe Acrobat Reader or equivalent for this purpose.
