If there is no sound on a channel, and you know the recording is there, then you either have a bad head or a broken wire at the tape head.

When i put a tape in to transcribe it sounds garbled. Do you think it could use a cleaning?


1. Try to change the tape speed on your machine. Sometimes that will fix it.

2. Maybe the tape is just old (has been dictated on too many times) and in that case, have the person dictate on new tapes and discard the old ones. They dont last forever.

Hope I could help!
