Sears Tape deck/Turn table skipping!

We just put a brand new cartridge on it and its skipping the first time we played records on it. Will a bunch of pennies on the needle mess up my records? could it be the tone arm isnt skating properly? if so, how do you fix that?

Hi the pennies will mess up the stylus. There should be an anti skate setting at the back of the turn table, a round adjustable bit with numbers, increase the anti skate and then use the balance weigth (weight right at the back of the arm that turns to get the weight right. Set the anti skate with the tone arm light, then increase the weight a bit. Hope that helps

How do I dub using the onyx double cassette deck?


There should be a button or switch that will select the recording deck and the dubbing deck. You put a blank tape into the recording deck and the pre-recorded one into the play deck. Pressing the record button on the dubbing deck, on some models should start the play deck running. If not press play on that deck.

Every record skips in different places


You should look for an anti-skate control on the turntable and adjust that. It will be a question of trial and error with it as there is no fixed rules for these. The weight on the back of the arm should be set to the weight of your cartridge.

When I play a tape on a Sony TCW475 dual cassette tape recorder/player there is this loud clunking noise as it begins to play. How can I fix this? It is brand new.


If the clunking is in the deck itself and not in the speakers, it's actually probably normal.
This "clunking" is the unit electro-mechanically lifting the heads into place.

for a start your title says "Problem with the Technics RS-TR272 Single Cassette Deck"
So is it a single or double?
i'm assuming it's a double,right only one of the decks records so put the blank tape into it make sure the tabs on the top of the tape haven't been broke or you'll need to cover the holes with the labels you get with the tape.
put the tape with the music on it, in the other deck rewind them both then press "sync rec" & they should both set off.

How do I record from one tape deck to the other?


Put your "blank" in the deck with the record button, normally red button and press rec/play and pause at the same time, put your "origional" in the other deck and press play and pause at the same time, then un-pause both at the same time. Make sure that the hifi is set to tape as if you record tape to tape when listening to radio foe example, you will get a strange "mix tape" of your origional and the radio.

Audio tape cassettes,old pre-recorded and home recorded play too slowly and drag. All brands. Tape deck plays new tapes fine.


A good cleaning to the rollers and tape head with a qtip and a small amount of rubbing alcohol should do the trick

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.
