Erase dictation tape

I just purchased a Sony M-2020. My old dictaphone had an erase button so I could clean the tape for reuse. I don't know how to do this with the new machine. Can you help.

How do I 'erase' a tape for a Dictaphone 1710?


I used to use "bulk tape erasers" to do the job in less than a minute for standard cassette of any length, 8 track and even reel-to-reel magnetic recording tape. Otherwise, you'll need to record "silence" over the entire length of tape. That will be time consuming - but will make the next recording clearer as opposed to just recording the dictation over the old recording.

Here's a link to some I found on Google. I'm sure there are plenty of other places to check (like ebay or craigslist) too. Don't forget to demagnetize the recoding head too! There are tools for this that will dramatically improve the sound captured on the tape. Here are a few I found. Finally, physically scrubbing the head with a plain old Q-Tip dipped in denatured alcohol to loosen dirt and grime that collects on the head and anything that comes in contact with the tape itself. You can get that, here.

Doing this along with replacing old tapes (they get stretched out, scratched, and dirty) regularly will keep the audio sounding crisp and clear.

Good luck!

What is the cue/f play/erase button on the top


When in RECORD, pressing the 'Cue' button will put a tone on the tape. This is used on the transcriber's machine to identify different jobs and such.

When in PLAY, pressing the 'F Play' button will change the playback speed to 1.5.

If you hold the 'ERASE' button and hold the portable in REWIND, it'll erase the tape while it's rewinding.

Hope this helps...

It is not a problem at all! The VW-210 & 260 was designed to utilize a two-step erase procedure to prevent accidential erasing of tapes.
1.) Press & HOLD down the TEL button
2.) Immediately press & HOLD down Rewind button UNTIL erase function starts then quickly release both buttons.
