SOURCE: Technics RS-TR272 dual cassette deck

My RS-TR272 tape deck plays the cassette but no sound. I have not even used it much, may be 3-4 times in last five years. I tried demagnetizing it but still no effect. It is brand new unit, only thing I did last time was that plugged in the RCA cables in opposite ways one time (Output in In and In into output one). I am not sure if that had any bad effect on it. Can someone please help on this as unit shows cassette playing. There is no volume switch on the unit itself as someone else recommended in the previous answer.

SOURCE: Technics RS-TR373 is chewing tapes

A lot of tape chewing problems are caused by the capstan roller being worn. Check for wear or oxide on that first.

How to replace the capstan belt on a Technics RS-M63 ?


Get the service manual and look at the mechanical drawings of where the belt goes. Most seasoned Technicians just go in and do it. A beginner will have to be more cautious. There are other things in the deck that also need attention like parts oiled and other idlers replaced.
Some Technics decks were ever made to be repaired.

Tape is slow and whirring noise


Alex somebody technical will have to look at what is wrong with your deck. What is the shape of this piece of plastic I tried to service a Nakamichi the other day and the reason for the deck to burn one of the motors from a sticker that was used for the identification and it jammed the mechanism up. It sound as if there is a part from the Pause control if this is one of the units in those made in China after about 1990

I WANT TO PURCHASE ONLY CASSETTE TAPE DECK HEAD ; AMORPHOUS Z 3 HEAD FOR TECHNICS CASSETTE TAPE DECK


All you can do is look on E bay for someone who is selling such an item. The fact that they are no longer produced is going to make the price high. This is the reality of cassette tape decks these days.

I have a rs-tr 180 that's pulling the tape out of the housing is there a solution?


The tape player recorder that pull the tape out could have the following faults: 1) It has a separate belt from the motor/capstan to the take=up turntable. 2) Capstan roller skew the gap when you bring the mechanism in can be checked and it must be PARALLEL with the surface of each other.3) Faulty cassettes they are binding in their housing due to heat or bad manufacture! Try to rewind and wind your cassette end to end both directions. 4) head alignment not set correctly 5) clutch of take up reel worn or has a bad tension spring. depending how it was made.

RS-X501 DOUBLE CASSETTE DECK PROBLEM WITH TAPE DRIVE ON BOTH DECKS


Usually the fault is the failure of the BELT on the mechanism. You will need to remove the covers to have a look on the motor drive behind the mechanism of the tape drive. Thebelt can be changed if you are technically capable to remove and reset the mechanism.

No sound from double deck


Look around for micro switches. They might have broke or jammed or something.

RS-dc10 DCC replacement head


You should contact Panasonic, or Matsuchita. They can most likely give you their authorised parts dealer. You may find the head to be a little expensive.

You will have to have an experienced tech install the head for you. He will have to do a tape path alignment with the frequency response calibration.

Technics RS-TR272-no sound during play


CHECK CONNECTIONS AT THE BASE OF THE READ HEADS AS THEY HAVE A TENDENCY TO CRACK OVER A PERIOD OF USE. CAREFULLY STRIP BACK AND RESOLDER, REMEMBER TO LEAVE SOME SLACK AS THE HEADS REVOLVE ON TAPE REVERSAL.
