This is the condition my CGP-115 quickly fell onto after purchasing it
on Ebay years ago. Tried to repair it but didn't actually put "my
heart" into it so the thing sits in the closet right now. A year ago
or so I got my hands on a PC-2 bundle... the printer/cassette
interface has the same technology on the printer side as the CGP-115,
and the flimsy advance gear is also loose on its metal shaft... that
special radial split that renders the whole thing useless.
Been thinking of replacing that plastic gear with something more solid
but it is one of those projects...
