Technics RS-TR373 is chewing tapes

Hi, My Technics RS-TR373 has decided to chew tapes when playing forwards on deck b. I have cleaned the capstans and its still no better as i first thought the dust on them was causing an imbalance and the tape to crinkle. not so. when playing side b the head spins 180 degrees and plays ok, when it soins back to play side a the problem starts leading me to think the head is not aligned.

am i right in thinking this and can the head be aligned easily?

A lot of tape chewing problems are caused by the capstan roller being worn. Check for wear or oxide on that first.

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.

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

Not sure what is odd about it-is it a regular IEC 3-prong? Mouser may have a cable if it's something else.

Suggest having a good clean and replace belts. If it stops around halfway on a C90 or near the end then there's a load problem on the take up reel, before halfway the supply reel.

RS-dc10 DCC replacement head


You should contact Panasonic, or Matsuchita. They can most likely give you their authorised parts dealer. You may find the head to be a little expensive.

You will have to have an experienced tech install the head for you. He will have to do a tape path alignment with the frequency response calibration.
