Akai GX-77 isn't erasing the old music on a new recording. Can hear the old music on the new recording. Please help. Thanks


Akai or Sony- just problem with erasing head. Usually erasing head looks like black and smoller near reading head. Can be problem deeper inside 'Tape Decks'- wire, no signal to the head and etc.

Sony SPZ70 Cassette deck


If the reels are going to quick it is either in fast wind or the pinch roller and head base are not moving up. Try again and if still no result tthen a Technician needs to see it.

I WANT TO PURCHASE ONLY CASSETTE TAPE DECK HEAD ; AMORPHOUS Z 3 HEAD FOR TECHNICS CASSETTE TAPE DECK


All you can do is look on E bay for someone who is selling such an item. The fact that they are no longer produced is going to make the price high. This is the reality of cassette tape decks these days.

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

In both tape decks music only plays in one channel. How can I fix this?


This can be due to one of the following reasons.:

1.The head can be dirty, use a head cleaner to wipe off dirt from the head.
2. The connections to the head could have come off. check on the head connection.
3. The head can be faulty.
4. The preamp or the power amplifier of one channel can be faulty. you need to use a signal check to find and confirm.

Wr565 - both decks jam the tape when i play them. any suggestions?


rss13506,
I'm not sure what you mean by jam but I bet you need to clean the head, roller and pin in each deck. Use rubbing alcohol and a q-tip to clean the:

1) Head (silver thing in the center bottom where the tape slides over; it produces the sound).

2) Roller (black wheel thing that keeps tension on the tape).

3) Pin (above the roller-works with the roller).

If any of these parts are dirty the deck will eat up the tapes. Clean them even if you do not see visible dirt on the q-tip as dust does not show as well as oils in the air typically from cooking will gum up the parts. Give them ample time to dry before trying a tape.

As any tape playing person knows from the 70's and 80's-try a tape you don't care about first, to make sure the deck will not eat up the ones you like!

Won't record and play sounds muffled


Muffled sound is either damaged media (is it mostly the Left Channel? Multiple tapes or not?) or dirty Playback Head. Clean the heads and transport.

Please define better what "won't record" means. Tapes to be recorded need to have the little tab in the corner of the cassette shell present to allow the machine to enter record mode.

Telex copyette 1-2-3 you can hear both sides at the same time


Clean the heads, oil the spindles.
Basic problem is the tape alignment is off a little. Could be caused by too much tape tension causing it to wander.
Hope Ya Fix It. So ya can spread the word!
