It can be a bad ground inside the deck or broken solder joint. I have fixed this case often but can not tell you exactly the problem unless I see the unit.

SOURCE: When i push play on either deck - the tape starts

If you observe the sprockets in the cassette you'll probably see they're not turning. That would indicate a broken belt or something mechanically common to both decks. Deck logic probably interprets the lack of sprocket rotation as end of side and auto-reverses. Take it to a shop.

SOURCE: technics tape deck rs-eh600 wont play it just clicks

Another dual deck it seems- the unit will need service by a Technician, there is no magic that will make it work. It may be as little as a large belt. I would have to see the unit to tell you the exact cause.

Ahh, Another Dual cassette deck. These are typically not worth a repair charge. I went looking for a service manual but Hi Fi Engine did not have one but they had a Owners Manual. Any unit that has a specification as to wow and flutter starting new at .18% was never made to be a long lasting deck of any quality. I don't like to be negative about people equipment but you might be better off getting a better deck from the start. If you think it is worth the repair, then send it to someone but I don't think you will want to sink $100 into a unit like this.
I am not saying it is unrepairable but that with what you come out in the end you could have made a better choice for a deck to buy.
It is probably a bad solder joint or bad capacitor on the circuit board.
I am in Chicago and would look at it for you if you want.

I bought a studio standard by fisher tape deck and it makes a buzzing sound and it wont play tapes what do i do


Take it back, it's broken!

Buzzing can be a fault on leads connected to it, but 'won't play tapes is terminal unless you ant to spend money on repair. Tapes are an antique of the past superseded by CD, and now MP3 digital.

Sony stacking system LBTd505, the sound from the record deck suddenly went very faint. The cd and radio sections are fine. I have tried a new stylus, but no difference. Any ideas?


You have two options. First a faulty cartridge. Or a faulty pre-amp in the main amp.
You can find out if the cartridge (and amp) are playing up. By removing the connectors on the cartridge.
Then with the volume turned up to about half, with your finger, touch each one of the wires one at a time. It will not harm you at all. But you should hear a loud buzz on one wire on the right and a loud buzz on the left on another wire.
The two other wires will either produce a crackle, or a tiny buzz, or nothing at all.
If you do hear a loud buzz on two wires. The cartridge is faulty and needs replacing.
If you hear a slight buzz on them or weak sound. There is either a bad connection between the deck and amp. Or the pre-amp inside the deck which is only used by the record deck so will not effect any other function, is faulty.
You can remove the record deck connections to the amp and again with the amp on half full, touch the inputs with your finger. If you are not hearing a loud hum or buzz, the pre-amp is faulty. If you do the connectors are faulty.

I can't get any sound through my Sony ps t3 turntable. Any help would be appreciated


First determine if your amp is working. You can do this by putting your finger on the phono plugs that comes out from the terminals that your deck fits in. You should hear a buzz (if it's switched on). If you don't get a buzz then the pre-amp inside your amp may be faulty. This pre-amp failure will not affect any other functions on your Receiver.
Next thing to check is if the signal from the cartridge can reach the amp. You do this by removing the wires from the cartridge. While the amp is on and deck connected to it. Touch with your finger (one at a time) each of the four wires. On two you will little or no noise. On the other two you should hear on the left hand channel a buzz from one wire and on the other wire a buzz on the right. If you hear no buzz and the amp is working OK then there's a fault in the wires to the turntable or inside the deck.
If that is good, then you might need to make certain that connections to the cartridge are good.

One channel won't play


With it connected to the amp remove the wires to the cartridge. With the amp on touch each wire with your finger one at a time. On one wire you should hear a loud buzz on the left. On other wire the right. The two other might produce a minor buzz or nothing at all, so ignore them. If you hear the buzz on both channels there's something wrong with the cartridge or the connection to it.

If you don't hear the buzz. Then (1) there's a bad connection between the deck and amp (phono plug or wire). (2) failed pre-amp inside the record deck itself. (3) failed pre-amp in the main amp. (this would not affect any other settings in the amp so tape decks will play normal etc).

I wired my technics 1210 turntable up to my usual audio set up and although it shows itself to be working, there's no sound coming from the speakers. Can anyone shed light on this?


First put your finger on the audio imputs for the deck in your amp. They should buzz with the amp switched on. If you can't get them to buzz, then the magnetic cartridge pre-amp in your amp has failed. If they do buzz. Take the wires to the cartridge off (make a note of where each one fits). Then with the amp powered up and deck plugged into it. Touch each wire one at a time with your finger. You should hear a buzz on two wires (one on the left one on the right) and nothing (much anyway) on the other two. If you don't hear any buzz there's something wrong with the connection cables to the amp. If you do hear the buzz, then the cartridge is dead.

My rec play board on my tascam 44 real to real 8 track records but does not work on playback . what chip is damaged, and where can i get them?


The best way to find the faulty part is to trace where the audio comes out of the board. Then with it connected, touch with your finger on a screwdriver the audio circuit. Working back from where the audio leaves the board. If you hear a buzz then it's working. It should lead you to the faulty part. To find it I suggest you put the number into Google and take it from there.
Keep away from the power supply with the screwdriver.

Tacsam DA 30 has no playback


Chances are that pre-amp IC that controls both channels has failed. Follow the wires from the tape head and trace the signal. Better still start with the output of the deck and trace backwards. If you touch the audio circuit with an insulated screwdriver (don't short anything) it should buzz. when you find something that buzzes on one side (coming out) but doesn't buzz on the otherside (signal going in) then you have found what needs to be replaced.
PS don't touch the power section.

Tascam 122MKII - press play no sound, meters don't move


Look for small leaver or any contact switches. They might have become bent out of shape or broken, or have dirt in them, cutting off the sound. Also check the leads coming from the head, they might have become detached or at least you can trace where they join the PC board. If you touch where they join you should get a buzz on either channel.

My AKAI GX 636 records but can't hear anything on playback (had recorded tape play on another reel to reel) plus the VU needles don't move when you try to play a recorded or pre-recorded tape


Trace the wires from the head to the amp section. Put your finger on where they join (during playback) and see if you can get a buzz. If you can't on either channel, look for something that might be common to both channels. Either a switch, or a pre-amp IC, as being the cause of the fault.

No sound coming from tape dec, though tape is turning


First check the wires going to the tape heads make certain they are connecting. If good follow them and see if they go to any micro switches, if still no joy keep following the leads to the PC board. The best way to test is to poke around and see if you get any buzz on any of the pre-amp parts. Work back from the output sockets of the deck to where the head wires join. If you get a buzz after and not before you have located the faulty stage.
Don't touch the power supply parts!
