Sound Issues on Audio Book Cassette Tape

I'm listening to an audio book on cassette tape. The audio voices fade in and out almost symmetrically, and there is an echo in the background - so when the speaker says a line, in quietly repeats itself as the tape continues to play. I've "adjusted" the pad a little (to increase the pad pressure against the tape) which helped, but there is only so far it can be adjusted before the tape wants to hang in the cassette player. Any advice on how to repair would be greatly appreciated!

WHAT HAPPENS TO CASSETTES THAT WON'T PLAY
By Margie Crawford

Cassettes can be damaged in a
number of ways. Besides just wearing
out, they can be broken, twisted,
stretched, stuck, demagnetized or
missing the pressure pad. Most of these
problems can be repaired except for
demagnetization which causes the
audio to fade in and out.
Cassettes can be demagnetized at the
self-check out terminals so do not
place them on the machine while
checking out other items. At home
do not place them on speakers or near
magnets. If the audio sounds backwards
or like a foreign language, it is twisted
and can be repaired.

The sound is very faint even with the volume turned all the way up.


When you open the cassette door, there is a metal piece in the back that pushes the tape ajainst the head. If that is broken or bent, you can get low audio. Other possibilities are a dirty tape head or misaligned head.

I cannot erase a tape


Audio cassette tapes are not erasable.
You must record over the recorded portion or side of the tape you want to delete. You can of course record silence if you want a "clean" or "new" tape (turn the volume all the way down and then press the record button).
I found that I could do very fast with some recorders by pressing the record button and simultaneously pressing fast forward.

Loud buzzing when I insert a tape in my car's stereo


Hiya, first try a normal cassette, see if that plays OK. If so the deck is probably fine, if not then the deck is faulty (probably not serious though and just a loose wire on the head).
If the connection between the tape and MP3 is a cable, the fault is quite likely there (if bluetooth then not). I strongly suspect the cable from the previous issues also.

Best of luck

Cassette issues


Could the tape be a Mono recording? Have you tried to clean the head on the tape player? This could fix it if the head is dirty. Do you use the tape player very often? It could have a dust build-up. Hope this helps...
