The audio cassette deck may be tough.

I have bought DVD players for as little as $40 (still waiting on the rebate
though) on-line and seen same in stores on sale. For that little money I
can't complain. I now have 2 DVD players and 1 burner.

My first CD player was a GE, no remote, single tray, on sale at Federated
for about 3-400 $$$ or so. It died wanting for nothing more than a belt.

p.s. Have you cleaned your lens on the old player?
