Dictaphone indicates end of tape

The dictaphone indicates it is at the end of the tape and will not record or play when it is not at the end of the tape. It indicates this at all times no matter where on the tape you are at.

Does the tape play OK in another unit? Will the machine in question play ANY other tape OK? Depending on these answers, the trouble could be a bad tape or the machine in question may have a broken drive belt or a miss adjusted sensor, or a Erasure tab broken.

Check the unit in question without a tape in it & see if the "Spindle" to the right for a standard Cassette machine (the left spindle for a "Micro cassette" unit) turns when the unit is put in PLAY mode. If the spindle turns OK, if you can, see if you can easily "Stall" the spindle or not with your fingures. If the spindle turns between your fingers & is not easy to "Stall out" it is probably OK & it is possibly a bad tape.

There is also a "Sensor" for the tape while in "Record" in the back corner of the tape. If this tab is broken or missing in the tape, it will NOT record, it will only play. This tab is designed to be broken out for "Erasure prevention" when the media needs to be protected from erasure in a machine.


NOTE: these machines were designed to ONLY handle tape with a single side record time of 60 mins or less.

Good luck!

The sensor that detects the tape movement is bad and will need to be replaced.

A loud beep on a 2710 dictaphone


There is a couple reasons way your unit can beep.
#1 not tape on the unit
#2 if you trying to record maybe the cassette tab on the cassette is broken to protect a recording
#3 it can be at the end of the tape
#4 try to play and make sure tape moves if tape don't move possible broken belt or bad motor
If none above you can send an email to service@tvps.com or call (805) 644-9525. Please indicate model and detailed description of problem.

I want to transfer files that were recorded on a dictaphone on to another dictaphone to play. How do I do this? The files are the same format and when I move them the dictaphone doesn't have them to play


Can't you simply take the tape from the 2750 and put it into the other Dictaphone to play it? Or is the other Dictaphone a different size tape (eg; mini or micro)?

Dictaphone use for Medical Transcription


You'll need a digital recorder (Dictaphone makes one - a Walkabout Model 5220). Transferring a recording from an analog (tape) machine to a PC requires a patch cord to hook it up to your PC, then some sort of software to record it while it's playing back.

Dictaphone transcriber 3750 won't play, reverse, or go forward. What can I do?


Does anything show up on the display? Like 'No Cassette' or 'End Tape'?

Are you using a foot control? Does the tape move when pressing the buttons on the machine itself? Is the foot control plugged into the side of the machine (and NOT the back)?

Dictaphone 3750 transcriber


If it does this with all tapes, there is a small "no-cassette" switch at the back of the cassette compartment. The switch may be broken, dirty or out of adjustment. When you open the cassette door you should be able to see the switch tab. Push it in just a bit to see if the No Tape indicator goes out.

Dictaphone 3720 Transcriber will not play or record


All three problems could be related to drive belt issues. Either the belts have become stretched-out or have broken.
