Does it fail for every tape? The tape might be running at the wrong speed - try restarting playback at various positions of the tempo knob. Make sure the spring-loaded felt pressure pad behind the tape is intact on the cassette you're playing and that the tape head is fully contacting the tape. There are some switches in the deck that can oxidize over time; to temporarily alleviate the effects of corrosion, you could try exercising them by pressing play stop play/stop/play/stop etc. a dozen times.
You might also try disconnecting the data cables to the note driver boards one by one and see if the system begins playing with what's left. Some kinds of failures on a note driver board can make the whole system fail to function.
Be sure to unplug the Pianocorder and wait 60 seconds before touching anything, and ensure the connectors of disconnected cables cannot come in contact with anything metallic.
