Question about Technics RS-TR373 Single Cassette Deck

1 Answer

No sound on cassette deck

I went to turn on the tape deck and it shows the tape is playing, but there is no sound out of either deck. All the connections are good and I have cleaned the heads. I lost the manual and cannot find a place to download one for free. Any suggestions. I don't use it that often, but the last time I used it, everything was fine.l

Hi Does the deck have VU meters?...or a graphic display of some kind to indicate there is sound being picked up from the heads? If there are, and they are not moving or flashing, as the case may be, then you could have a wire off the head, or a problem in the preamp circuit, or if the deck is older, it could be as simple as a dirty play/record switch. I would need more info to help further. Good Luck!

I took my Pioneer SX-450 Receiver and Pioneer CT-1040W Tape Deck apart to move it. Put it back together. Now can't get a tape to play.


After putting a known good tape in the deck, push play, if the tape doesn't move, try rewind and FF. If nothing happens, the deck has a problem. I assume this is a cassette deck. If so, I always try the thrift stores for a new(used) one. There are good bargains there.

What is the bias control's function?


The Bias control is used during recording. If you turn down the bias, you will get more highs, but the distortion will increase, and then start to increase dramatically if you back off the bias more.

As far as playing tapes from different decks goes.......

1..Does the tape that you recorded on your deck sound OK on your deck ?
2..Does the tape that you recorded on your deck sound OK on other decks ?

If 1 and 2 are true, then your deck is OK.

If the tapes recorded on a specific deck sound bar on yours, but 1 and 2 are true, then the other deck is faulty.

When a deck leaves the factory, the head is aligned to a " standard " tape. By standard tape I mean a very special tape recorded in such a way, that a tech can tell if the head is out of align and "tweek " the physical alignment of the tape head..

All decks are aligned just a little differently, but fairly close to each other.

first do the mechanicals....is the head of your deck spotlessly clean ?. Use 99% pure isopropanol alcohol and a cotton swab. Never use anything metal to clean the tape head. If you scratch the head, its toast.

If your deck is clean, plays its own recordings well, and those recordings play well on other decks, then your deck is not the problem.

Hope this helps,
Rob

How must I connect the amplifyer V500 with my computer for recording from a tape player?


I assume you want to record from tape to computer and monitor the recordings later.
Simple three steps.
1) Connect the tape deck line out ( or labeled PLAY ) to any one of the inputs like Aux / Tuner using an 2RCA connector.
2) Connect Rec out from the SUV' to line input of your PC ( blue socket ) sound card.
3) To monitor your PC sound after recording on to Hard Disc , connect a cable between the PC sound out ( green socket ) and the the SUV Tape monitor IN ( sometimes labeled PLAY ) Now comes the tricky partbobhifi_30.jpg.When you want to record on to your PC put the source switch on the SUV to where you have connected the Tape deck ( Aux / Tuner ). On the SUV keep the Tape Monitor switch to source ( released position ). After having done the recording to monitor and hear the Hard Disk playback turn on the Tape Monitor switch ( dipress it ). The pressing of the Tape switch on the SUV lets you toggle between the source and recording - In your case Tape deck and PC

I don't own and am not familiar with this device but my advice would be to turn all progs off. As long as you are not on the internet and you have no media connected then turning the anti virus off is safe as your computer is in a stable condition. I would also try using a different usb slot if you have that option as the distorted sound you are describing may be coming from interference with your usb port or cable. Good luck and I hope you manage to record those tapes!

Connection between CD, EQ, SP technics


Each unit (the EQ and the Processor) should have left/right in/out rca jacks as well as L/R tape in/outs. The EQ or processor use the receiver's tape loop and then provide a tape loop to replace the one they've used on the receiver.

You plug the first unit (let's say the Sound Processor into your receiver/amp as if it were a tape deck (Processor's outs connect to reciever's tape ins (play) while the Processor's ins connect to the receiver's tape outs (record).

Then you chain the EQ off the Processor in the same way (EQ outs connect to Processor's tape ins (play) and EQ ins connect to the Processor's tape outs (record).

Last you connect the tape deck to the EQ as follows. Tape deck outs connect to EQ's tape ins (play) and the tape deck ins connect to the EQ's outs (record).

This will put both the Sound Processor and the EQ in the receiver's tape loop. In order to have all the receiver's source signals routed through them you may have to engage a Tape Monitor switch or button somwhere on your amp which will route the tape loop to your speakers.

Tape shows playing but no sound


Is sound at the headphone socket?
Does the meter show audio output?
If the answer is yes to these questions check that the connections to the amp are correct and the amp is set up is ok.

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.
