SOURCE: Technics Tape Deck RS-M227X. VU needles jump to the maximum right

More than likely the pre-amp IC has failed! Trace the wires from the VU meters back they should locate the source of the problem. Remember it will be something common to both channels!

SOURCE: technics tape deck rs-eh600 wont play it just clicks

Another dual deck it seems- the unit will need service by a Technician, there is no magic that will make it work. It may be as little as a large belt. I would have to see the unit to tell you the exact cause.

SOURCE: Technics RS-TR272 dual cassette deck

Ahh, Another Dual cassette deck. These are typically not worth a repair charge. I went looking for a service manual but Hi Fi Engine did not have one but they had a Owners Manual. Any unit that has a specification as to wow and flutter starting new at .18% was never made to be a long lasting deck of any quality. I don't like to be negative about people equipment but you might be better off getting a better deck from the start. If you think it is worth the repair, then send it to someone but I don't think you will want to sink $100 into a unit like this.
I am not saying it is unrepairable but that with what you come out in the end you could have made a better choice for a deck to buy.
It is probably a bad solder joint or bad capacitor on the circuit board.
I am in Chicago and would look at it for you if you want.

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.

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

Connection between CD, EQ, SP technics


Each unit (the EQ and the Processor) should have left/right in/out rca jacks as well as L/R tape in/outs. The EQ or processor use the receiver's tape loop and then provide a tape loop to replace the one they've used on the receiver.

You plug the first unit (let's say the Sound Processor into your receiver/amp as if it were a tape deck (Processor's outs connect to reciever's tape ins (play) while the Processor's ins connect to the receiver's tape outs (record).

Then you chain the EQ off the Processor in the same way (EQ outs connect to Processor's tape ins (play) and EQ ins connect to the Processor's tape outs (record).

Last you connect the tape deck to the EQ as follows. Tape deck outs connect to EQ's tape ins (play) and the tape deck ins connect to the EQ's outs (record).

This will put both the Sound Processor and the EQ in the receiver's tape loop. In order to have all the receiver's source signals routed through them you may have to engage a Tape Monitor switch or button somwhere on your amp which will route the tape loop to your speakers.

Tape shows playing but no sound


Is sound at the headphone socket?
Does the meter show audio output?
If the answer is yes to these questions check that the connections to the amp are correct and the amp is set up is ok.

Just connect you EQ to your receiver as if it were a tape deck: EQ's outs connect to receiver's tape ins (play) and EQ's ins connect to receiver's tape outs (record).

Then you hook the tape deck up to the tape ins and outs on the EQ: Tape deck outs connect to EQ's tape ins (play) and tape deck ins connect to EQ's tape outs (record).

This will put the EQ in your receiver's tape loop. To hear the EQed signal with all receiver sources you'll need to engage the 'Tape Monitor' button or switch which will route the tape loop to the speakers.

Technics RS-TR272-no sound during play


CHECK CONNECTIONS AT THE BASE OF THE READ HEADS AS THEY HAVE A TENDENCY TO CRACK OVER A PERIOD OF USE. CAREFULLY STRIP BACK AND RESOLDER, REMEMBER TO LEAVE SOME SLACK AS THE HEADS REVOLVE ON TAPE REVERSAL.
