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.

Sound stopped


Please check to see if the tape is running. It is possible that the tape was running dry and created the sqeak with a static noise over the head. the belt would have failed then and stopped the tape movement. hence without the transport your song is not played. So please check this out. Otherwise it is important to clean the head and check if your amplifier is working. test for voltage and audio tone. if not confirmif the audio amp is faulty and replace. Hope this helps. Good day

I have XM radio hooked to cassette player adapter in my car. The new adapter keeps sounding like it is rewinding. XM plays for 30 seconds and then ''rewinds'' again, over and over.


Unfortunately your tape play has the auto reverse feature. It is detecting that the tape is not turning via a reel counter. Sensing no movement ( as you have an audio adaptor inserted rather than a real tape) it is trying to switch to the other side of the tape.
Not very much you can do.
You could purchase an FM modulator and basically re-transmit the Xm over an un-used frequency on the FM band to slve your problem

How to open an old cassette that doesn't have any screws?


Some bargain tapes were made with glued-together shells. They were usually sold in bulk packaging in the days of cassettes for voice recording (for students taping lectures, for instance) but weren't meant to last long. You need to break open the shell and transfer the tape into another one after you repair the problem. Use a stiff blade along the seam to open it. I use a shop knife to get the cut started, then wedge a stiff putty knife into the opening and twist. The shell splits open pretty easily once you start it.

Turn walkman off


If it's a tape player with a stop button it should turn off by just pressing stop. If there is a radio then there then there should be an off position where you select if you want to listen to the radio or listen to the tape.
