20 Most Recent Technics RS-TR575 Single Dual Cassette Deck Questions & Answers


There are 2 long switches, maybe 4" long, called record/play switches. These can certainly cause this. Try cleaning them with the power unplugged. You would turn the cassette deck on end, so the switches are vertical. Use LPS-1 or LPS-2, and spray a very small amount in the end. Work the switch back and forth and see if that helps. Good luck.

With an oscilloscope check the recording head is there a sine wave signal if not then the oscillator is kaput record switch operating correctly?what is the age of the tape itself? Was it played back a lot of times? I found this when some tapes refuse to take other recordings when used a lot
It is difficult to say what went wrong if you do not have access to the unit

This is the biggest reason why I say that the designer of these fancy little door/cradles SHOUL HAVE BEEN SHOT before invention. With a strong longnose plier break the casing of the cassette The Technics that I worked on the lid of this door can be removed from the outside Be careful with the tape itself if the recording is of great value to you that you do not stretch or break the tape. REMOVE all power batteries or mains or both ! then turn the flywheel in the OPPOSITE direction so that the tape can be unwound. You do get empty shells that can be used in the place of the one you gotta break the shell It remains a messy sort of business After you have removed the tape inspect the rolle and capstan shaft are they CLEAN and free running to prevent this from happening again. In the future it is a good habit to fast forward or rewind the tape from end to end.In the user instruction booklet some manufacturers recommend this. If you are scared to damage your machine then get this done by an expert and ask him/her to show you in future.

Alex somebody technical will have to look at what is wrong with your deck. What is the shape of this piece of plastic I tried to service a Nakamichi the other day and the reason for the deck to burn one of the motors from a sticker that was used for the identification and it jammed the mechanism up. It sound as if there is a part from the Pause control if this is one of the units in those made in China after about 1990

Probably need a new transport mechanism belt. In any case open the deck up and see if the belt is loose. Then turn the pully with finger until tape is released. Do not force- if high resistance is had then turn the other way. You will need to get a belt if you see a loose one. It could also be a bad motor for that function. I am not looking at the SM right now.

It's a simple job for a repairer - if you can find one that will have anything to do with audio cassette technology anymore, sorry, but I'm finding that some won't.
Not knowing where you are I don't know which currency you use but if it helps, here in the UK I'd say don't spend more than £25 on this.
There are still new cassette decks made and lots of good used ones around.
I know Technics is a very good make but I was looking at superb condition Nakamichis the other week for £35 which are a far better brand.

The loading is not completing and so the mechanism will not release the forward eject of the cassettte to work. So please check on the belt and if this is worn then the loading will not work as it will slip and so will not complete the loading back to rest mode.

Look for: faulty switches, wires from the head off, or a faulty pre-amp perhaps an IC?

Take it to a Panasonic authorized service center. They'll fix it.

press the synchro start button, the tape deck should now go to REC PAUSE, press the SPEED button till you get the required recording speed then press the synchro start again and it should start to record from deck 1 to deck 2.

make sure the tabs at the top of the tape you want to record on are intact,
if not just put a bit of sticky tape over holes.

hope this helps?

Often a micro switch can break that cuts off the sound, look around for them.
Otherwise it sounds like a amp problem. It is also something that common to both channels. Maybe an IC that both channels goes into, or perhaps the IC is not getting power.

F61 - error code. This will trigger if the unit has gone into overload to avoid further damaged to other parts. The common causes of this error code. 1. Output IC - this is the most common caused of the error code. Once shorts happened to this IC, it will trigger the error code. Exposure to high volume and/or running in the long time will caused this IC to shorts and produce an overload.
2. Shorted Speaker - if one of your speakers shorts, error code will appear also. This may isolate by disconnecting the speaker to the set and play the unit *****. If the symptom still there the fault came from the unit itself.
3. Shorted Inputs - inputs connector is also prone to shorts due to frequent bending and pulling. To isolate this from fault, disconnect all the inputs connected to the unit like the aux input, antenna, mic, etc.
4. Faulty power supply - once gone to out-of-regulation condition, the error code will appear to protect the most expensive parts from further damaged.Bad solder joints in this section is also to consider.
5. Faulty Fan and its circuitry - F61 will appear only after a minute of operation not upon powering on the unit. Check the fan if working or not...
Also, check whether your unit is still within the warranty period, because the manufacturer will fix it for free.

The drive ic is shorted or there is a small transistor that is bad not having the unit on a bench is is hard to track down the part. But it is a easy fix if you find the service manual and can do soldering the manual will tell you where to find the part that is making to run away! The main thing is to find the parts is you find the # on the parts I can or you can look up those parts. Good luck.
