    Usually it is a combination of buttons so you dont accidentally record. Try PLAY + REC at the same time.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, the reason for the 'Record' button will not "push down" is because the record tab of the the cassette has been removed. There are 2 of these tabs on both ends of the rear of the cassette tape. If they have been broken off, there would be 2 square holes. A workaround is to cover these holes with tape. Of course it is also possible that the metal tab pressing on these tabs are out of alignment (least likely).

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Recorder button does not go down. . Is there anyone who knows how to fix this problem


There is an interlock that prevents accidental recording. You may have to press PLAY and RECORD at the same time.

How do you record on a Lanier p-164


Turn the main power button "on" first, it is located on the skinny side of the recorder opposite of the function knob. Press eject to open the cassette door and install a microcassette tape, with the tape facing the function knob side. close the cassette door and that should load the tape and allow the tape head and pinch roller to move into place for recording or playback. pull the function knob down or push it up to record. If you go into record a red light should come "on" the top, to indicate good batteries and the record function is initiated. After recording pull the function knob all the way down to rewind the recording,when you release the button the unit goes into the play mode automatically. Make sure that the button that reads (off--- vor/fplay) is in the off position.

I have a JVC RC-ST1, I'm trying to record from CD


check to make sure the tab on the cassette is not on, as if it is, it will prevent the record button from being pushed down , thus avoiding overwriting the cassette.
If thats not the case then the record mechanism is damaged inside the cassette caddy.

Sanyo Stereo Cassette Recorder M7300K will not record and record button vey hard to push down


Make sure the tape you are trying to record to is not restricted (unrecordable or pre-recorded). You can look at the tabs on the top narrow band and if they are punched out the tape will not accept recorded material. (you can put scotch tape over the hole and still record but only if you are desparate!)

My record button won't go down. How can I fix it?


This is normal if the cassette tape has a broken tab. Try a different cassette or inspect the cassette to ensure that the write protect tab is not removed. where to look? On the cassette opposite side to where the tape is there are two possible places, each on the side of the cassette case. The broken tab is a feature that prevents accidental recording over an existing program. It also stops the record button from being pushed. The tab is a plastic part that is easy to break with a pen tip.

Recording button can't be pushed down any longer


1. PlayStation 2 systems do not handle tapes, but CDs and DVDs. No wonder you have broken it if you inserted a tape in it.
2. There is no radio in a PlayStation 2 system.
3. On a PlayStation 2 system, the button with a red dot on it is the power button, and it turns green when the power is on.
4. You cannot record, especially not on tapes, with a PlayStation 2 system.
5. You usually don't play a PlayStation 2 in the kitchen, but in the living room since it's meant to be plugged in your TV.

Here's the diagnostic : you do not own a PlayStation 2 system.
You have been ripped off by whoever sold you this piece of **** under the name of "PlayStation 2 system".

Recording on tape deck


I have not "solved" the problem. I'm simply assuming that the built-in microphone does not work. I CAN record radio on to a tape and a CD onto a tape. I just cannot record my voice onto a tape. I'm just chalking it up to a faulty microphone.

No, I do not want a plan, thank you.
