Hi, I have a PMD222 and I haven't had much pracetice with it. I really have no clue...but anyway. I have tried to simply play a cassette tape in there and I have no sound. I tried to plug in little desk top speakers and I still hear nothing. I see the tape rolling and the VU meter jumping but I just don't hear anything. Can you help?

SOURCE: How can I digitize cassette tapes using the Marantz PMD670?

Take a set of RCA Jack cords (4 jacks) and on the tape recorders "out" jacks attach one pair and on the PMD 670's "In" Jacks attach the other pair. Set the tape a few seconds before where you want to record , set your levels to where you want them, start the recorder then start recording with the PMD.

You may need to test record a few seconds to make sure the recording is at the level you want it to be. Plug in a set of headphones to the PMD and listen in from time to time to make sure it's recording OK.

There you go.

Best,

Dan

It is a very old cassette tape which appears to have broken inside the tape. Am I able to repair this? If so, where can I get this done?


I'm afraid that this is one that only you can do, or somebody you know. Repair shops probably would say throw it away, or buy a new one.
VHS tapes are not to hard to fix though. All you need is a small screwdriver, some non-yellowing sellotape and a new or old VHS tape.
The old or new tape will show you how they work/fit together if you have never opened one up, which is perhaps obvious you haven't!

Right here is what to do. On the underside of the tape you will find several screws. Remove all of them. Once done lay the cassette bottom side down on a table. The top part should lift off from the bottom part, if there is a label on the back of the cassette this will keep it together, so you may have to break/cutt the label to remove the top section. If you haven't seen the inside of VHS before do the same thing to another cassette now. OK now you will have to work out where the tape has snapped. If the tape has departed from one of the reels, where the clear (leader) tape attaches you can re-attach it using your good cassette as a guide.
If the tape has broken in the black section, then cut a piece of sellotape the same thickness of the video tape. Trim the two broken halfs of video tape so they are nice and square to each other. I would remove any badly damage area of the tape, to prevent any break. It won't play anyway. You then (using the sellotape) join the two tapes together. Put the sellotape on the back of the video tape and make certain there is no sticky part exposed. Try and avoid contact with your fingers to the front of the tape, though there's no chance of that near the join. Re-assemble the cassette.
I would not recomend this method, unless it's a tape that has unique content on it - such as a family video. Even then I would recomend the tape is transfered to DVD as soon as you have repaired it and never used again.

I have a Technics Double Cassette Deck RS-TR212. On the rear it has Output and Input connections. Output goes off to the Amplifier. Can the Input be used to record or play from a record Turntable? I have...


your receiver has (or should have) input and output connections,, your turntable needs to be hooked to the receiver,, then with the output cables that feed your cassette player you need to go, in to out and out to in ( receiver output to the input of the tape player, and out of the tape player to the in on the receiver, while playing a record if you hit record on the tape player it will record the record, depending on the receiver it will show you the meter readings for either the in or out,, they vary

Hello FixYa, I was able to find a post in the internet to help. While you service is convenient, the cost and my immediate need really dictated my continued search. Thank-you anyways for your time.

Always "Check Tape's Erase Protection Tab"


Turn the power off and back on again while the tape is in the player.

Do you have another tape to try to see it it's still doing it?

Hi, I am brand new to this site. So I may not be very good. However your prob sounds like one I had a few years back. I solved mine by using two pencils, one in each hub.
Then winding manually from one to the other. This is quite time consuming, but it worked for me. Hope this helps, if not, sorry for wasting your time.

I can't figure out how to use the cassette (dumb I know)


I think that if you haven?t tried yet press play on the cassette section and see if it will over ride the radio. Hope this can help your adviser Jonathanc.
