Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a discontinued battery operated portable cassette tape recorder, Saisho TR60, little used. The batteries had very slight corrosion which may have affected the terminals in the recorder. Can you tell me how to clean them? (They're tricky to get at.)

I find it best to wrap a piece of fine sandpaper around a bendable wire and gently rub over the contacts!

Audio cassette tape broken. How do I repair?


Radio Shack used to sell a splicing block and tape for fixing broken tapes. They may still, and you can order online from other sources.

You need to pull the tape out from the cassette a little way. Overlap the tape sections a little and get them aligned, which is what the splicing block is for. Cut across both pieces and take away the scraps. This makes sure the pieces match up. Lastly you place special splicing tape over the join and trim the edges. You need the special tape, since it's designed so the adhesive won't ooze out and get on the tape recorder heads.

If the tape has come loose fro the hub inside the cassette, you need to open the housing and use the splicing tape to fasten the recording tape (actually the plastic leader tape) back in place. Depending on how the cassette was made, there may be screws holding it together, or it may have been glued. Some commercially-made music tapes and bargain-grade cassettes weren't made to be opened. If you do open the tape, don't lose the little metal piece with the felt square that goes across the opening behind the tape. This is the pressure pad that keeps the tape pressed against the head in the recorder. Without it, the tape won't work properly.

20 year old Dictaphone Voice Processor Microcassette not working


Not sure if you're still having problems with this portable, but the first thing I would check is to make sure that you've put the batteries UNDER the battery clip in the battery compartment. Does the machine just make a 'beeping' noise when it tries to play, rew, or FF?

Tascam 488 mk II recording problems


Have you taken a look at the edge of the tape? tracks 1 and 2 on a cassette are usually next to the edge and you may have a bad batch of tapes that have the edge damaged. Another possible but not a likley problem might be the tape is out of spec. for the width, and your heads MAY have a little wear from use, and are trying to act like tape guides. If the tape is slightly wider than the grove worn in the head, the tape would be lifted at the edge and not make contact to the head. It is not electronic as you have diagnosed this with other tapes. Give it a try and see!
