You may first want to check that the battery terminals are tight. What you are likely describing is the starter drive bendix not enguaging the flywheel properly on the first try. It could also be a worn gear on the starter bendix, or a bent spring, or it may just need lubrcation. I would first check the battery terminals. You might also try pushing the start switch with a little more force, if the symptom improves, it could be the start switch. If you know how to get to it, also check the connection to the starter. Another likely possibility is the battery has just gotten weak, and is not quite supplying enough current to engage the starter solenoid, or the solenoid itself is not making a good enough connection. First make sure the battery terminals are tight. If the headlight is on during starting, pay attention to whether or not it dims much. If the headlight dims excessively, the battery is likely weak.

Dual cassette deck are often poorly built and full of problem with age. They are typically not worth repair. Get a good deck like the Tascam 122 Mk II as these can be repairs.
I have consulted with clients that have dual decks and the cost to repair will get you a Tascam 122 Mk II in restored condition and it works much much better. I should know as I have been repairing decks for 40 years so far.

Will not rewind or fast forward microcassette tape. Makes a noise like rewinding or FF but then starts beeping. Not a tape issue, tried other tapes.


Nothing like going back in time. Think what you have here is a belt issue. As in the belt has stretched over time and is no longer tight enough to hold when you engage the motor on ff or rew. Repair shop might be able to help or else you might want to consider a new machine which is all digital recording. ie no moving parts inside.

The dictaphone wont rewind or fast forward and makes a bleeping noise


Hi,
Does the tape move when you press rewind or fast forward.
If the tape moves for a few seconds then bleeps it sound like a sensor problem.
If it only bleeps when the rewind and fast forward are pressed and the play is ok it sounds like the actuator motor is faulty,this motor enables the rewind and fast forward.
Hope this helps.

The belts will have failed. You will need to replace them for the deck to be reliable. If you are mechanically minded I can talk you through it... You giving me a FixYa rating will help my profile and loosen my lips on how to overhaul your deck. :)

Loud noise on rewind


You may have an idler gear wheel which has been damaged- perhaps broken/worn gear teeth or something afoul in it's drive mechanisms. Check this idler which sits down in between the supply and take-up spindles. You should be able to see this with no tape loaded. This idler should also move freely from supply to takeup- if it is sticky in movement this could be the problem. If your idler is broken, you may be able to replace it. Check with a service center- or a parts supplier. MCM electronics is one such supplier- there are others.

GL2 does ne rewind


I doubt it is something in the settings. Step 1: The tape may be causing the camera to "reject" it. In other words, it thinks there is something wrong with the tape so it is warning you with the error message. Perhaps the cassette has been damaged slightly. This error can also happen when the tape has been used often or taped over a few times. MiniDV tapes are not media that can be recorded over and over again. Solution: Try using a new tape. 2. The camera may need to be cleaned. The recording heads may be dirty and it doesn't matter what tape is placed in there. Solution: Purchase a cleaning tape from a consumer electronics store. Make sure you read the directions very carefully. These are cheap fixes. If it works, great. It would also be good to know what it CAN do. Does it play in the VCR mode? Does it record? And can you view it in the VCR mode? Has it changed in any other way, i.e. is it making a strange noise when it starts to rewind, when before it didn't? Let me know how it goes.
