Question about Maxell 179030 Microcassette 3-Pack (60 min, 3-pk) Micro Cassette

1 Answer

Mini cassette tape is wrapped around one spool inside the casette

I transcribe on a dictaphone machine using Maxell mini casettes. This is the first time EVER the tape came off one side. I am afraid to break the outer shell for fear I will ruin it forever.

1). Remove the five screws from top half of cassette shell. If the cassette shell halves are glued together, very carefully split the shell with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Maneuver the screwdriver around the shell to break its seal. Avoid getting cut or damaging internal components of cassette.
2).Carefully lift off the top half of the cassette shell.
3). Pull the head if the tape from the left reel.
4). cut-off the damaged edge, and attached a peice of sctoth tape to the shining side of the tape, and leave about 1/2 inches of scotch tape beyond the head of the recording tape.
5). trim the sctoch tape using single edge of the sctoch tape razor or X-Acto knife to the same width as the recording tape.
6). carefully insert and tape the head of the recording tape to the right reel. and manually wind the tape till the recoding tape is flat to the front of the recoding pad.
7). carefully close the top shell, make sure not to pinch the tape. use your finguer trun the right reel, make sure the tape winds freely.
8). secured the top with screws.

My vhs c adaptor wont play my casette. It plays for two seconds then the power to the vcr turns off. Yes I have tried several vcrs


This is because something is jamming either in the adaptor mechanism (nightmare devices at best!) or in the tape cassette.
If you can afford to, escape from this dinosaur technology and enjoy a digital camcorder with a hard drive and/or recording on cards.
No moving parts! No tape tangles, jams or breaks! HD quality!
Well worth considering.

Videotape is at end of recording space. went to record new event and tape came out of casette and will not play or rewind in video camera


Try another tape in camcorder to make sure that camcorder is OK.
If same problem comes with another tape, check any error sign blinks in camcorder LCD? Usually this kind of problem happens when Dew sensor activated.
Remove battery/ power source from camcorder for 30-40 minutes, reattach battery / power source with camcorder and try.
Let me know model and brand of your camcorder for more research.
Thanks.

The tape broke and I am trying to put it back together so I don't lose the dictation


I have done this,carefully take the cassette apart,by removeing the screws,be sure and look at how it is assembled.
Remove both spools of tape.In the break area cut with a razor blade each sides of the spools so you have a smooth surface on the tape.
lay them on a flat surface,pointing towards each other,be carefull not to drop the spools.Put one (little) drop of supperglue on the tape,then put the other end of the tape on top,make sure the alignment is straight and you dont glue the tape to youre work area.Wait about five minutes,then reassemble. Works like a charm for me.

Digital betacam tape stuck in Sony UVW-1800 deck


Digital tapes should still eject normally (they are the same size and shape) which indicates that it has jammed somewhere inside.
If you want to fix it yourself you will have to remove the cover and check the tape.
If the cassette hasn't spooled up and all the tape is inside the cassette you should be able to unscrew the carriage (the cradle that takes the tape in and down) and remove it that way.

If the tape has spooled around the heads there is a cog (can't remember the exact position of it) arranged vertically near the side of the machine that you can manually wind the spooling arms back into the cassette.

Good luck

How do I open a Maxell mini DV tape case? I have one cassette that is broken - tape is fine - I need to transfer the tape reels to a new cassette. Same brand of cassette.


Hello FixYa, I was able to find a post in the internet to help. While you service is convenient, the cost and my immediate need really dictated my continued search. Thank-you anyways for your time.

Videotape twisted


Underneath, between the spools, you can use a pencil or such other instrument to push in the part that holds the spools in place. Then loosen the tape as needed.

Tascam 488 mk II recording problems


Have you taken a look at the edge of the tape? tracks 1 and 2 on a cassette are usually next to the edge and you may have a bad batch of tapes that have the edge damaged. Another possible but not a likley problem might be the tape is out of spec. for the width, and your heads MAY have a little wear from use, and are trying to act like tape guides. If the tape is slightly wider than the grove worn in the head, the tape would be lifted at the edge and not make contact to the head. It is not electronic as you have diagnosed this with other tapes. Give it a try and see!
