Question about Sony BM-147 Desktop Cassette Transcriber / Recorder

Foot Pedal & the letter / second button

The letter and second button have been put on - I never use this function. When I stop the pedal it rewinds to the beginning of the dictation. Someone had unplugged my unit over the weekend and the letter second feature has been turned on and I need to know how to turn if off.

HELP~!!!!!!!

It could be the rewind solenoid is jamed up or there is a switch that comes loose under the tape deck. Either way, it will need to be serviced.

Have a panasonic RR930 microcassette transcriber. Right now the foot pedal will not allow rewind though when I press the pedal I can hear it engage. I can, however, rewind right on the unit itself. ...


If neither rewind nor backspace work, the common problem would be that the solenoid grease has dried up and the solenoid is not retracting all the way. However, the track that the mechanism moves in also wears out, as well as the plastic rocker that depresses the rewind button where it engages the metal slide.

If backspace works but not rewind from the pedal then the problem is the pedal.

Foot pedal FF or Rewinds when pressing Play


It's possible that there's a broken wire in the cable that connects the foot control to the machine. This usually happens near the plug that plugs into the machine, or by the end that goes into the foot control.

You can usually duplicate it if you put the auto-backspace up a bit and then hold down the play pedal on the foot control. While holding down the play pedal, try moving the cable near the machine or near the foot control in a circular motion. If the machine stops, rewinds or fast forwards, then odds are that the problem is with the cable.
