Question about Onkyo TA-RW244 Single Cassette Deck

1 Answer

Cassette tape spins fast

I have an Onkyo dual tape deck (TA-RW400), 20 years old.
When a tape is inserted in either unit and play is pushed, the head does not move up to the tape and the motor spins as if fast forward. happens in forward or reverse play. If i manually move the head up, tape speed is still fast.

It is strage that the same mechanical problem would appear in both units at the same time, perhaps the play buttons are sending improper signals.

Anyone experience this. I am trying to move my tapes to MP3. is it worth messing with this old deck?

thanks

I would need to hear how it sounds first hand, it may be a copy guard that is causing this.

The laser pick-up unit fault [weak]. You have to replace it with a new one of similar number. Contact any service technician. To replace this part, you have to take out the whole mechanism from the system; and this is a skilled work.

BOSe Wave Radio - Disk "not readable"


I had the same problem with the disk unreadable error and took my unit to a authorized repair dealer about 100 miles from where I live to have it fixed. It ended up costing me about $300 to have the CD unit totally replaced which is almost as much as I paid for the unit in the first place. I am like a lot of you that used the CD very little although the unit was about 3 years old. I think Bose has a problem and would like us to think it is very rare. I bought a Lifestyle surround system about 14 years ago that has a CD and have never had a problem with it so needless to say I am very disappointed in the Wave II Radio/CD system. I am fairly certain the problem will occur again, but only time will tell.

Loss of signal


The receptor in the Logitech MP3 Wireless and Ipod wireless headphones is located in the right speaker of the headphones, so place your player in a pocket in the right side of your coat.
