Question about Tascam 322 Advanced Dual Well Single Cassette Deck
We 99% of the time record tapes, but on occasion we have to make copies of the tapes we record. When going from recording tapes to dubbing tapes and then going back to recording tapes, all of a sudden the tapes aren't recording. any insight on what we're doing incorrectly when we try to go back into recording tapes
If there is a switch (either a mechanical switch or a relay) that changes the recording mode (something like normal/dub or record/dub), it might have oxydized contacts and this may be the cause of the problem. Cleaning the contacts inside the switch/relay or replacing the switch/relay will probably solve this.
You may want to check the switch prior to removing it. You can do it with a continuity tester (possibly with the kind that gives a sound signal when the continuity is good).
Otherwise, if the switch can be disassembled in a simple way, see if the contacts inside the switch are brownish/oxydized, if so, you need to clean them, but you also need to clean the clips that connect the contacts. Some fine sandpaper will do the trick, but be careful when you disassemble and reassemble the switch, some parts can easily get damaged.

Chrome tape 40-15000Hz (±3dB)
Normal tape 40-14000Hz (±3dB)
Chrome tape 40-8000Hz (±3dB)
Normal tape 40-8000Hz (±3dB)
Imagine what its response at, say, 30000Hz might be. That's what doubling the playback speed would demand from the head and electronics. It ain't hi-fi anymore.
