Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Akai mg1214 12 track mixer recorder, tape will not move.

The tape mounts and moves forward to mark when loaded, however the wheels do not pick up the slack tape as it moves forward. Same with reverse and forward, you see the tape move slightly but it does nothing else. It is also old and the memory lights are flaking out. It says reseting it solves this but I believe the original battery is dead. Where is this battery, do you think it will help the problem replacing it? These time set flakes out also, this looks like it does not have a sync or control track, I can fix that once the other stuff works. This is not all related is it. Can I send it out to get fixed, I have found a couple of places in california, i am in north carolina. any help is appreciated.

Sometimes these decks have a brake attachment to stop one of the rollers when rewinding or FF. The problem may be that the brake attachment is too tight. It is adjustable.Or a broken gear or belt. It is located on the underside of the cassette player.But I would take it in for repair if the peoblem seems more complicated.

I have Akai gx 230. Its doinf Rew and FF but Play not working, though engages. Tape does not move. Can it be tape threading problem?


Could be either. If you can do some testing, check for power to the capstan motor in play configuration. If there is power at the motor terminals, the motor itself may have failed.

How you could measure a distance of about 1 km in your neighbourhood


To measure it accurately use the longest measuring tape you can find (I have one that measures 30m). Extend it fully and starting from the beginning point lay this in the direction you wish to measure the road. At the 30m mark on the tape lay a tooth pick, or some other item with a sharp point, on the road with the point level with the 30m mark on the tape. Now without moving the toothpick hold the tape and walk in the direction you wish to measure until the beginning of the tape is level with the toothpick (check that this is accurate - best if you have somebody helping you).Now take the tooth pick and again place it on the road level with the 30m mark on the tape. Repeat this another 31 times and then on the next time measure only one metre. This will have taken you 1000 metres along the road.
Alternatively, make your self a wheel of circumference say one metre out of some suitable material (plywood). Attach an axle at the centre with a handle so that this wheel can easily revolve on the axle. Put a mark on the wheel at the circumference so that when you place the wheel on the road with this mark at your starting point on the road and then walk forward, you will be able to count the number of times it has rotated as you walk along in a straight line. When the wheel has completed 1000 rotations (with this mark touching the road) this is the 1 Kilometre distance measured.

Passenger seat in 1999 Pontiac sunfire is jammed forward


normally the seat tracks are bolted to the floor or riser. It is possible that when the seat was moved forward the track moved over the head of a mounting bolt and will not return. check for interference between track and rail while trying to return seat.

Vhs tape stuck in vcr


Some one needs to open it to see if the tape is loaded but wrapped around a post or tangled up.

What usually causes this is the mechanism that moves the tape has a problem---bad or broken belt or rubber drive wheel that moves tape is bad.

Its called eating tapes.

With it apart you may be able to extract the tape and then insert with it apart to see if reels etc are or are not moving in RR and FF first and then in play to see what is not moving.

The dictaphone wont rewind or fast forward and makes a bleeping noise


Hi,
Does the tape move when you press rewind or fast forward.
If the tape moves for a few seconds then bleeps it sound like a sensor problem.
If it only bleeps when the rewind and fast forward are pressed and the play is ok it sounds like the actuator motor is faulty,this motor enables the rewind and fast forward.
Hope this helps.

Hear both sides of tape on playback ??


It's a 4-head reversable deck where the Forward tracks are arranged across the physical tape surface, front-to-back as follows:

ForwardLeft ReverseRight ForwardRight ReverseLeft

...so it sounds like the Reverse playback heads are engaged at the same time you play Forward, so you would hear those adjacent tracks backward. If you play the tape in the Reverse direction, is the Forward program audible (but backward)?

If so and in otherwise high fidelity, something in the Forward/Reverse head selection may be hosed.

Or, if the out-of-phase tracks are mushy and low volume, the physical tracking of the tape across the heads could be WA-A-A-A-Y bad. That would probably be visible as sideways distortion in the tape path. Shine a high-intensity light on the tape where is passes over the heads, then reverse it while watching where it sets up on the heads. It should be centered on the heads and not change its orientation when reversed. Compare where it tracks in motion with the probable visible wear marks (shiny bars across the heads perpendicular to the travel) where the tape has polished the heads over the years.

Or, the heads are so worn the coils pick up signals from their neighboring tracks.

Play back on Sanyo mr-929 reel-to-reel tape recorder is backwards


I also have an MR-929. The information that you need is in the 'Stereophonic 4 track stereo''. As stereo is only two tracks, there is another 2 tracks in addition to the one you are listening to. Wind the entire reel to the empty spool, and then play that. As you have to physically turn the reel over to do so, you should then hear the other tracks (or track, if recorded in mono).
I use my 929 to play my parents recording of my family from the late 60s, which were recorded on a valve (tube) Ferguson machine, which had a green "magic eye" level indicator, which as a child I found fascinating!
