Look around for micro switches. They might have broke or jammed or something.

Before I cleaned the head, no pic.. after cleaning the head, no pic.. what do I do?


If you can hear the sound then cleaning the head sometimes works. Unfortunately no amount of cleaning will cure a faulty VCR head
By the way you posted this in the cassette and Reel to Reel tape section not the VCR section so it took me longer to see this.

My technics cassette deck tr575 everything seems to work all the functions all the buttons but when I put a cassette tape in the unit I see no responce on the db meter... Everything is functioning on


There are 2 long switches, maybe 4" long, called record/play switches. These can certainly cause this. Try cleaning them with the power unplugged. You would turn the cassette deck on end, so the switches are vertical. Use LPS-1 or LPS-2, and spray a very small amount in the end. Work the switch back and forth and see if that helps. Good luck.

Why doesnt audio go to the receiver


There may be a cable that isn't passing audio any more or the amp in the tape deck isn't working.

Despite cleaning and demag my kenwood x-se7 deck still produces a distorted sound, any suggestions why appreciated


It could be a bad relay in the record circuit or work out heads. I would have to look at the unit to tell you more.

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

I have a Technics RS-TR373. Yesterday, during tape playing back, he sound suddenly stopped. The db level meter shows no sound being pickup. I switch to tape 2, it was the same. Tape was played (I can...


hi rich,
i had this problem it was touching the buttons that lost the sound to the speakers, do you have a re-set button if so press it if not press A or B to get your sound back if thats does nothing then try head cleaning tape as you might have some static thats transfered from your tape to your heads an anti- static head cleaning tape will do the job, you should use these cleaning tapes every week as the heads pick up a lot of dust particles and static that cause very poor reproduction and qulity such as crackling and muffled repro,
hope this helps

My cassette deck Onkyo model Ta 2060 is working slowly


HELLO

By the fault you describe this sounds very much like a belt problem. Take the case off the deck and check the belt(s). Some decks can use more than one belt and you need to look at their condition.

Are they too slack around pulleys maybe? Belts don't last forever and I'm not too sure of the age of your deck. But personally, I would change them all.

Make sure the tape path is clean as well, clean heads, pinch roller and capstan.

My Sony dual tape deck does not record in stereo anymore.


Oxide deposits on heads can restrict audio transfer to tape. You may need to do a deep cleaning of record head. Depending on how much deposits are on heads may need no more than alchohol and Q-tip. Be sure to clean erase head and drive roller. Afterwards, try recording, then use headphones in jack on recorder to check for recording on both channels. If this works, problem is not in rest of equipment set up. If you still need help, email me

No sound on cassette deck


Hi Does the deck have VU meters?...or a graphic display of some kind to indicate there is sound being picked up from the heads? If there are, and they are not moving or flashing, as the case may be, then you could have a wire off the head, or a problem in the preamp circuit, or if the deck is older, it could be as simple as a dirty play/record switch. I would need more info to help further. Good Luck!
