    I have the same problem - play won't work - it just beeps and cuts off like it's at the end of a tape. Rewind and Fast Forward work fine. Does anyone have any ideas?

Just talked to Exec. Communication Systems. He said that the play motor is not turning (the rewind and fast forward uses a separate motor) and the problem is either the belt or the motor. They can repair them at $82.00 plus parts and shipping.

If it does this with all tapes, there is a small "no-cassette" switch at the back of the cassette compartment. The switch may be broken, dirty or out of adjustment. When you open the cassette door you should be able to see the switch tab. Push it in just a bit to see if the No Tape indicator goes out.

SOURCE: I have a M-2000 Microcassette

Hello,

This unit does not have erase. You can use a microcassette tape eraser which you slide the tape thru.

How do i get a sony microcassette transcriber m-2000 to play/rewind/fast forward continuously?


Probably has a bad sensor belt (small belt attached to silver and black reflective wheel).

Will not rewind or fast forward microcassette tape. Makes a noise like rewinding or FF but then starts beeping. Not a tape issue, tried other tapes.


Nothing like going back in time. Think what you have here is a belt issue. As in the belt has stretched over time and is no longer tight enough to hold when you engage the motor on ff or rew. Repair shop might be able to help or else you might want to consider a new machine which is all digital recording. ie no moving parts inside.

Microcassette won't play but does rewind and fast forward


I have the 3 of these units at my office with the exact same problem. Turns out, with a little tinkering there is a simple fix.

Open up the unit (by unscrewing the two screws underneath) and look for a brass disk with a black rubber band around it that connects to a small tip. The rubber band should be either stretched, broken, or even melted. This is the problem. Over time the rubber band deteriorates which causes the unit to not play a tape (rewind and fast forward operate differently).

Replace the deteriorated rubber band with a new one similar in thickness and size. That should work like a charm. Be careful if the original rubber band has melted. It is tar-like and will be difficult to remove.

Hope this helps.

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.
