SOURCE: NAKAMICHI CASSETTE DECK 1 NOT PLAYING?

it has probably thrown the capstan belt and will require a new belt fitted. the transport relies on capstan rotation to engage play. a separate reel motor operates ff/rew and takeup funtions

My Play, Pause, and Record button will continuously blink on and off, which prevents me from opening the cassette door using the eject button to play a tape.


That would be me at Skywave Tape Deck Repair- maybe I have contacted you already through Thumbtack.
I can not say more here but if you search for tape deck repair in Chicago you no doubt will come across me sooner or later.
The only other person you would be qualified would be Russ Bachmann at New Jersey Factory service. We both worked at Teac factory service facilities and rose to high ranks at those facilities.

If he wants you to get parts then I would suggest you get a different Technician. Why would any Technician want to go to the trouble and risk of the customer getting the wrong belt.
You can get a set of belts from Marrs Communications for that model.

Recording Speed


the tascam 414 is a 4 track recording studio which uses standard cassette tapes- meaning they only play in one direction, because the tape is full. The 414 records at double speed so that recording fidelity is increased. When you have made a recording you want to mix you then dub your recording though the outputs into another standard tape recorder or whatever you have available, be it a cd recorder or your PC. So, when you listened to your recording on a standard tape player, you were not only hearing it at half speed but you were only listening to 2 of the 4 tracks. The other tracks would only be heard if you flipped the tape over, and they would be heard running backward. I would have though the 414 had a swich to allow it to also record at standard speed to but I guest it does not.

The DAT machine needs new belts and maybe some cleaning. These fail all the time due to old belts that lose the tension that is required.

Cassette tapes


try firmly banging the cassette onto a table top(with reels flat) a few times, then ff right through and rew a couple of times. this will layer the tape more evenly and hopefully allow the mechanism to play it. the takeup reel or autostop mechanism may be failing if the deck does not have enough torque to carry the tape and may require belts replaced or dried grease removed in the transport.

Dual Cassette Deck won't stop or auto-reverse


There is a tape tension sensor which, it appears, isn't working. Check to see if the linkage to this sensor may have been misaligned while you were replacing the belts. Also check to see that the sensor isn't binding or sticking.

Tascam 202 Mk111


most all twin well machines will play off one deck and record to the other.

using an outboard mic preamp will allow for less noise using the sm57. balanced mic cable with 3 pin xlr/cannon connections also reduce noise.
