Re: rca rs 2620 power but no audio

I had the sane problem: No audio out from any source. Although I was unable to find a schematic or service manual, I did find the defective part was labeled on the circuit board as Q401 and replaced it with RadioShack part number 276-2009 (MPS2222A NPN Transistor TO-92 case NPN silicon). This is not an exact match, but is available at most RadioShack locations for under $1 and has fixed the problem.

Re: rca rs 2620 power but no audio

I had the sane problem: No audio out from any source. Looking at the schematic the only component common to all audio outputs is IC401. Pin 24 of IC401 should be 6.6V; it measured 0V. The trouble was a defective transistor, Q401 in the Vs regulator (Q401, Q402, and Q403). Replacing Q401 with a better quality transistor pemanently fixed the problem.

Re: rca rs 2620 power but no audio

I had one of these in the other day for warranty repair. Same symptom as yours. Maybe you will get lucky and have the same problem. Check IC401 pin 24. It is a surface mount chip on the board sticking out in the air above the tape deck. It should have about 10v. If not I found that although none of these parts checked bad changing them fixed my problem: Electrolytics C411 220uf 16v and C410 47 uf 25v and D402 p/n 248145 (7.5v zener) Q401 p/n 212671 (ktc3203y or 2sc3203y)

Re: rca rs 2620 power but no audio

If the unit appears to function properly, moves tape etc, but no sound, plug in a headset and see if you have sound. If you do the power amplifier has a problem. It could be that it is not getting power, has shorted outputs, or no signals to the amp. These units tend to have bad solder joints and probably half the time resoldering all the joints in the suspect circuit solves the problem. If that doesn't work you'll need an O scope to trace the signal through the system, provided you are sure the amplifier is getting the proper power. Good Luck.

Re: rca rs 2620 power but no audio

What's the voltage on the two red wires from the transformer to the amp supposed to be? I think that's the reason I'm not getting anything out of it, because the headphones do work, and I'm getting audio down to the amp.

My technics cassette deck tr575 everything seems to work all the functions all the buttons but when I put a cassette tape in the unit I see no responce on the db meter... Everything is functioning on


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.

UNIT HAS ALL POWER FUNCTIONS BUT OUTPUTS NO SOUND. ANY SUGGESTIONS. HAVE CHECKED THE SPEAKERS HOOKED TO ANOTHER UNIT SO I KNOW SPEAKERS ARE OK. MY SON IS BRAIN DAMAGED AND NEEDS TO HAVE SOMETHING TO LISTEN...


This comes to mind:
Did you perhaps connect the rca jacks to the record in instead of the play out?
Maybe the rca cable is not plugged in at all on either the receiver end or tape deck end.
Have you tried using a different rca cable?
Did you select the right input on the receiver?
You may try using a different input on the receiver.

I know these sound obvious, but they may fix the problem.

Connection between CD, EQ, SP technics


Each unit (the EQ and the Processor) should have left/right in/out rca jacks as well as L/R tape in/outs. The EQ or processor use the receiver's tape loop and then provide a tape loop to replace the one they've used on the receiver.

You plug the first unit (let's say the Sound Processor into your receiver/amp as if it were a tape deck (Processor's outs connect to reciever's tape ins (play) while the Processor's ins connect to the receiver's tape outs (record).

Then you chain the EQ off the Processor in the same way (EQ outs connect to Processor's tape ins (play) and EQ ins connect to the Processor's tape outs (record).

Last you connect the tape deck to the EQ as follows. Tape deck outs connect to EQ's tape ins (play) and the tape deck ins connect to the EQ's outs (record).

This will put both the Sound Processor and the EQ in the receiver's tape loop. In order to have all the receiver's source signals routed through them you may have to engage a Tape Monitor switch or button somwhere on your amp which will route the tape loop to your speakers.

Tape shows playing but no sound


Is sound at the headphone socket?
Does the meter show audio output?
If the answer is yes to these questions check that the connections to the amp are correct and the amp is set up is ok.

RS 2620 has power but I do get any sound


If you are not familiar with electronic circuitry, I would strongly suggest you did not try to service the unit yourself. There are many circuit functions that need to be tracked and evaluated, any one of which could be the problem or one of the problems.
Please consider taking unit to to serviced

Technics RS-TR272 dual cassette deck


Ahh, Another Dual cassette deck. These are typically not worth a repair charge. I went looking for a service manual but Hi Fi Engine did not have one but they had a Owners Manual. Any unit that has a specification as to wow and flutter starting new at .18% was never made to be a long lasting deck of any quality. I don't like to be negative about people equipment but you might be better off getting a better deck from the start. If you think it is worth the repair, then send it to someone but I don't think you will want to sink $100 into a unit like this.
I am not saying it is unrepairable but that with what you come out in the end you could have made a better choice for a deck to buy.
It is probably a bad solder joint or bad capacitor on the circuit board.
I am in Chicago and would look at it for you if you want.
