SOURCE: Technics RS-TR272 dual cassette deck

My RS-TR272 tape deck plays the cassette but no sound. I have not even used it much, may be 3-4 times in last five years. I tried demagnetizing it but still no effect. It is brand new unit, only thing I did last time was that plugged in the RCA cables in opposite ways one time (Output in In and In into output one). I am not sure if that had any bad effect on it. Can someone please help on this as unit shows cassette playing. There is no volume switch on the unit itself as someone else recommended in the previous answer.

SOURCE: My Teac R-H500 tape deck will not play tapes

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. :)

Look for small leaver or any contact switches. They might have become bent out of shape or broken, or have dirt in them, cutting off the sound. Also check the leads coming from the head, they might have become detached or at least you can trace where they join the PC board. If you touch where they join you should get a buzz on either channel.

SOURCE: When i push play on either deck - the tape starts

If you observe the sprockets in the cassette you'll probably see they're not turning. That would indicate a broken belt or something mechanically common to both decks. Deck logic probably interprets the lack of sprocket rotation as end of side and auto-reverses. Take it to a shop.

Why does my sony reel to reel tape deck make no sound when playing a tape?


Are you playing the tape "right-side up"? I used to screw that up a lot at my radio station.

What is the bias control's function?


The Bias control is used during recording. If you turn down the bias, you will get more highs, but the distortion will increase, and then start to increase dramatically if you back off the bias more.

As far as playing tapes from different decks goes.......

1..Does the tape that you recorded on your deck sound OK on your deck ?
2..Does the tape that you recorded on your deck sound OK on other decks ?

If 1 and 2 are true, then your deck is OK.

If the tapes recorded on a specific deck sound bar on yours, but 1 and 2 are true, then the other deck is faulty.

When a deck leaves the factory, the head is aligned to a " standard " tape. By standard tape I mean a very special tape recorded in such a way, that a tech can tell if the head is out of align and "tweek " the physical alignment of the tape head..

All decks are aligned just a little differently, but fairly close to each other.

first do the mechanicals....is the head of your deck spotlessly clean ?. Use 99% pure isopropanol alcohol and a cotton swab. Never use anything metal to clean the tape head. If you scratch the head, its toast.

If your deck is clean, plays its own recordings well, and those recordings play well on other decks, then your deck is not the problem.

Hope this helps,
Rob

I have a onkyo cassette tape deck ta 2600,when you push play on the cassette,it would play the tape for half of a second and stop


Sounds like the cassette tape itself is too tight to play, try fast forwarding or rewinding the tape in the deck all the way to the end of tape several times before trying to play. This may solve the problem

Reorded tapes only play out one speaker


check your cables to the units channel that doesn't work, for breaks. Does the cassette player play back a pre-recorded tape okay? if it doesn't there might be a internal fault.
Check the wires to the tape head to see if one is off.

No sound coming from tape dec, though tape is turning


First check the wires going to the tape heads make certain they are connecting. If good follow them and see if they go to any micro switches, if still no joy keep following the leads to the PC board. The best way to test is to poke around and see if you get any buzz on any of the pre-amp parts. Work back from the output sockets of the deck to where the head wires join. If you get a buzz after and not before you have located the faulty stage.
Don't touch the power supply parts!

Audio tape cassettes,old pre-recorded and home recorded play too slowly and drag. All brands. Tape deck plays new tapes fine.


A good cleaning to the rollers and tape head with a qtip and a small amount of rubbing alcohol should do the trick
