Question about Technics Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

Technics RS-CH770 Dual cassette player on both decks will only try to play in the opposite direction and then stop, so the drive spindal that is supposed to operate does not but, the other one does and so 'pushes' the tape out and it stops. If you put the reverse mode on it just clicks back and forth some times before stopping. Any help appreciated. Thanks, Haydn.

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.

a system remote is the only option for you here. The deck does not have its own remote receiver. Sorry to break the bad news to you.

SOURCE: Technics RS-TR272 Dual - Won't Reverse

Cassette decks that have been sitting for long periods have problems with drive belts and idlers becoming slack or decomposing of the rubber compound. If you wish to keep the unit, please have it cleaned and have belts/idlers replaced with new ones by a professional service. Also have controls and switches cleaned of built up tarnish and mildew to prevent noisey or drop-out audio

SOURCE: How to replace drive belts on Technics dual

First of all you will need some mechanical mind to open out the set. The tape mechanism has to be removed and the connections should be noted and removed. If the old belt is already in the mechansim then you will not have any issue with the direction of the belt to go around the capstan flywheel. If you have alreaddy obtained the correct belt then carefully open the back of the mechanism to remove and reset the new belt. When replacing check for the free running of the capstan if not use a small drop of oil to free. If the belt was not there then wind from the motor to the second flywheel after running it around the first flywheel to drag it along so that when the motor turns you have the flywheels turning freely. reset the back plate using a thin probe type tool to hold the belt and release to the motor. For a first time it may be a bit difficult but try again. Hope you get this right. Good day

I can't find the manual to my Technics RS-TR272 Stereo Cassette Deck. How do you tape something on one cassette to another?


Place the tape you want to record into the left deck, Then the blank tape into the right deck. Press play on the left deck and record on the right deck.

It may be opposite depending on which side your recording deck is on.

Which ever deck has record, place blank cassette into that one and the cassette you want to copy into the other deck.

Hope this helps and please rate thanks

Technics 373 Dual Cassette - Playback Stops


Suggest having a good clean and replace belts. If it stops around halfway on a C90 or near the end then there's a load problem on the take up reel, before halfway the supply reel.

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.
