Won't rewind microcassette recorder

I ordered a sony M-535V off ebay and it was in perfect condition. I only started having problems a week or so after. It won't rewind, you have to press play a couple of times before it responds, fast forwarding is tough because you can hear cogs moving in the background and each time at the begining of a recording, ait freezes, makes a buzzing noise and records! help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

Have a panasonic RR930 microcassette transcriber. Right now the foot pedal will not allow rewind though when I press the pedal I can hear it engage. I can, however, rewind right on the unit itself. ...


If neither rewind nor backspace work, the common problem would be that the solenoid grease has dried up and the solenoid is not retracting all the way. However, the track that the mechanism moves in also wears out, as well as the plastic rocker that depresses the rewind button where it engages the metal slide.

If backspace works but not rewind from the pedal then the problem is the pedal.

What a cheap machine. Can't erase confidential tapes after transcribing them. I'm returning this for a brand that has enough common sense to add an erase button.


Hello unfortunately this unit don't have a erase function the only thing you can get a Microcassette eraser this eraser will help even if you decide to buy any micro or mini cassette transcriber when you used the erase function on the unit the life on the head, rewind, gears and motors get reduced by using this method if you used and eraser it erase the tape Magnets are on top and bottom eliminating the need to flip the tape allowing complete erasure on one second heare is a eraser you can buy and it is cheaper than buying other unit. http://www.tvps.com/Products/ECS-ME20-Mini--Micro-Cassette-Eraser---New__VE-ME-20.aspx

Suddenly my Sony M-2000 Microcassette Transcriber will not PLAY. The tape will Rewind and Fast Forward fine, but when you push PLAY, it just beeps and won't move. Any ideas?


Just talked to Exec. Communication Systems. He said that the play motor is not turning (the rewind and fast forward uses a separate motor) and the problem is either the belt or the motor. They can repair them at $82.00 plus parts and shipping.
