Question about Dictaphone 3750 Desktop Cassette Transcriber / Recorder
Hi, I bought this unit used online and seemed to work fine for a while but have noticed intermittent poor voice quality on tapes, like a wobbly sounding voice and sometimes muffled sounding. I have cleaned the heads with a alcohol swab and this did not improve the problems. I have been told that the door may be adjusted, so how is this done? Also yesterday when I went to turn it on it would not turn on? What could this problem be?
The door cannot be adjusted, but the head alignment can be. If you open the cassette door, you should be able to remove the door cover. Then install your tape and put into play. You will need a small phillips screwdriver (like you would use on eyeglasses). If you look down towards the front of the cassette compartment, there is a small cutout, and below that the adjustment screw. Turn it very little at a time, first clockwise. If it gets worse go the other way. If it gets better, keep turning slowly until the sound is the best quality. As far as not turning on, check where the power pack plugs into the back of the machine. I have seen where either the pin in the receptacle is broken, or if you remove the bottom cover, the solder points are broken loose and need to be resoldered. (I was a tech for them for 20 years).
