Question about Panasonic RQ-2105A vintage cassette player & recorder Auto Stop TESTED

Open Question

Cassette recorder doesn't record

The unit plays cassettes, rewinds and fast forwards, (although it DOES occasionally jam up) but when I playback after recording, I hear 'pop' sounds, but nothing that I recorded. The problem is not with the cassette, I've tried multiple, and they are all recordable cassettes (or I have the indent taped over). There's no corrosion visible when I cracked open the unit, I tried cleaning the heads, but still only popping sounds. Thanks.

Your camera has a capstan servo problem which is more than likely being caused by the capstan motor itself.Nothing you can do youself,would suggest bring to service but reccomend getting estimate before repairing.

SOURCE: problems with recording/rewind/fast forward

You probably have a bad power supply. But as you will learn, repairing any VCR will cost more than buying a new one.

Most likely all that you need is to replace the belts set.

Panasonic RR-930 does not backspace with or without pedal. It engages the mechanism but appears stuck when tape is inserted. Runs fine without tape in deck.


The ancient tape is junk. Buy a new one. You might also try slamming the old tape against a wall or desk to loosen up the tape layers. Then FF and RW all the way.

I have a Tascam 488 mk II that will rewind and fast forward, but will not Play or record. Does anyone know a solution to fix this problem?


Check too make sure that the tabs on the cassette itself are there if they are gone place a piece of tape over them, then try recording again. It may be a belt issue open the unit and see if all the belts are present cassettes usually have 2 or 3 separate belts one controlling the fast forward and rewind and another for record and play more than likely this is the issue, If so belts for these units are obsolete try searching science and surplus magazine catalog they carry a variety of large rubber band / belts you may get lucky and find one there good luck I hope this helps you

I have just bought a Dictaphone express writer 1740. It rewinds and fast forward but does not play properly. It is in excellent condition. We are using micro cassettes. The manual said this machine can...


This unit takes mini cassettes, not micro. A common issue with the playback on this model is the rubber tire on the drive reel cracks, causing it not to turn. It probably needs to be replaced.

The dictaphone wont rewind or fast forward and makes a bleeping noise


Hi,
Does the tape move when you press rewind or fast forward.
If the tape moves for a few seconds then bleeps it sound like a sensor problem.
If it only bleeps when the rewind and fast forward are pressed and the play is ok it sounds like the actuator motor is faulty,this motor enables the rewind and fast forward.
Hope this helps.

Dictaphone ExpressWriter system - tape will not rewind, play, ff


Is this a standard-size cassette unit? Is the model number a 2740 or 2750? When you first plug the power in, does the machine make two clicking noises? Does the display show 'CAS' or 'No Cassette'?

Dictaphone 3720 Transcriber will not play or record


All three problems could be related to drive belt issues. Either the belts have become stretched-out or have broken.

Cassette Recorder play problem


Sounds like the tape tension sensor is stuck. The sensor is always telling the mechanism that the tape has reached the end.
