My microcassette tape recorder stopped working.


It is possible that the rubber drive belt has broken or the motor is bad. Turn the volume all the way down,hold the unit next to your ear and put it into a function. Listen for motor noise, a slight buzzing noise. If you hear that it is possible the the motor is good and the drive belt is broken.

I recorded minutes and was able to retrieve the first 30 minutes of the recording. Two days later I went to finish them off, but the microcassette appears to be blank. No sounds, nothing. How is this...


Hello try to used and external headset to make sure the speaker is not the problem, if no audio come out the headset when you are listening watch the red light indicator and talk if the red light blinks you unit may have the internal record switch broken and you may over recording your tapes you can send your unit to repair but I think is cheaper to get a new one, you can get a similar one at http://www.tvps.com/Products/SONY-M-675V-Micro-Cassette-Recorder---New-M675V__SO-M-675V.aspx

20 year old Dictaphone Voice Processor Microcassette not working


Not sure if you're still having problems with this portable, but the first thing I would check is to make sure that you've put the batteries UNDER the battery clip in the battery compartment. Does the machine just make a 'beeping' noise when it tries to play, rew, or FF?

I transcribe from microcassettes that are recorded on various recorders. Some of my users *always* have a loud buzzing throughout their tapes making my job miserable! I'm trying to find a solution and...


One thing that can cause this buzzing is the recording machine being too close to a computer screen which can give off powerful magnetic fields at 50-60Hz.

When boss dictates a letter I can barely hear any sound!


The tape might be getting old, replace it and see what happens.  If it is still acting up, It might be he is not recording properly or the recorder is bad.  Try talking directly into the mic and see if it is better.  If it is, he needs to talk louder or needs to hold it close.

Won't rewind microcassette recorder


Although this unit may look new, it is over 10 years old. The problem is probably that the rubber belts and drive tire are bad. They can fail even if never used. I would suggest replacing with a newer model.
