    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.

My sony cfs-w360boombox plays tape at high speed upon play, normal or high speed poition


there may be 2 possibles

1, the pinch roller is not going down and staying in the fixed when during playback, easy way to check power down the unit, press play and see if it looks firm, it will push back, if working right

if its loose, it may well have come off a little sping, and may well be an easy ish fix, by someone who know about cassette decks,

2, the speed adjustment has failed, there will be an internal speed control, which keeps the playback at a correct speed, if this has failed it may be fixable, but only by someone who can take it to bits and remove and solder a new one in, and they are very small and Sony items i have had have failed on speed control! too for me its a junker box

good luck

Has the unit got a built in mic? Some have ,some havn`t. Some times you have to set the volume for recording.If it`s not set high enough you`ll get no playback!

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.

How do I tape to tape


you mean to record?first,you must connect the other unit (if you are using two cassette)by using rca plug or earphone plugs.insert the plugs to audio in or aux(this is the unit that will record).if the other unit doesn't have the output audio,use the earphone out instead.time to record.the recorder must be set to tape/aux,(if you are using a unit with radio setting).then,push the play and record button at the same time.don't forget to put in the blank tape ok.then push play to the unit that you want to be recorded.the square symbol is for stop.the arrows pointing left ,rewind.pointing right, forward.the big arrow pointing right is the play and the button next to it is the record button.

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.
