Repair of Sansui cassette deck D-1000W and Compu Receiver Z-5000X in India.

I own 1sansui cassette deck tape D-1000W and Compu Receiver Z-5000X. There is difficulty in playing cassettes on Tape no. 1 of Deck 1000W . The cassette does not play instead when pushing the play key, the cassette tape runs at much faster speed as if we are doing fast forward. Secondly, there is problem of stopping the sound intermittently from the speakers automatically whereas the cassette plays on the deck and full signals visible on deck for bass/treble showing the cassette as playing.

Hi, I have the same deck as yours. I think the problem might lie with the dubbing facility . Check on the right hand side , two buttons: dubbing high and dubbing normal. The dubbing high is probably stuck. Fiddle around with it and press the dubbing normal to try and cancel the other one. Make sure that when you play a single cassette that you use deck A only and that deck B is empty.

This is a fairly old and obsolete model and its components are now not manufactured. If you are lucky, some stockists may have replacement part, but normally at very high price.

On a kenwood KR597 reciever, where do i hook up my KE597 graphics equalizer. Also must i remove my DP-R797 cd player to hook up my Maeantz PMD520 Cassette deck? Finally divorced

If you only have one set of tape in/out connectors, then hooking up two tape decks and an equalizer is going to be difficult. You could hook the "tape out" to one tape deck, that tape's output to the second tape, and the second tape's out to the equalizer, connecting the output of the eq back to your receiver....

How do I hook up a rsb11w dual tape deck to a technics sa450 receiver

Hi! This is normally relatively easy. You just connect the tuner output to the line input of the deck. Normally this is done with the amplifier where the tuner go to the tuner and the tape deck to its connections just line out to the cassette input and the cassette line out to the tape input of the amplifier

I need to know how I can hook up my Teac EQA 5 equalizer to my Sansui AUD 9 power amp.. I lost the manual to the E/Q

It is very easy, you don't need a manual for this. The EQ line in and Line out get hooked into the record out and Tape in of one of the tape loops on the Sansui amp. Record outs go to EQ in and the EQ out goes to tape play.

Hookin equalizer to tape deck and recever

The equalizer I have seen have Line in, line out, tape in, tape out and that is how you utilize a unit like this. The line IN goes to the receivers tape record out. The line out goes to the receivers Tape play in or monitor, The tape deck hooks to the equalizer. The record or input of the tape deck hooks to the EQ record out, the Tape decks output hooks to the EQ's Tape in connectors. All these are stereo so there are left and right sides which you need to keep consistent. Red on a cable means Right, the white or black on cables mean Left or the top RCA connector on most equipment.
When playing back a tape the tape monitor is turned on with the receiver and left on. The way you record on tape from any source of the receiver is to select that source and it should go to the equalizer. Then the deck should record that source. To play a tape of the deck hooked to the equalizer then just press the tape monitor button on the EQ otherwise the Equalizer will just act as a loop and equalize any signal source that is coming from the receiver and the tape monitor on the receiver should stay on most of the time. Some equalizers have two tape inputs so you would hook another deck to that input and the owners manual of the equalizer should say how to select buttons to transfer tape signals from one to the other. If you master the concept of inputs and output of audio equipment then this hookup becomes another easy thing to do.

Technics M14 cassette deck has hum. Bought used and had hum but I got it to go away by switching the tape select dial to metal,etc. but hum came back later. I'm thinking ground or a wire to that switch. ...

If the hum is audible without monitoring a tape playback it has nothing to do with the oxide formulation or any aspect of the media.

Determine the conditions present whenever the hum is present:

Player just turned ON?
Tape deck Playing or Paused?
Tape deck Recording or Paused?
"Tape" selected at the receiver?
Any source selected?

What switch are you referring to? You could have a floating ground or shield through a Tape Monitor or other control. Audio cables between the Deck and the receiver could be faulty or require reseating with a twisting motiuon to remove oxide build-up.

Hum can enter any unshielded cable running near any motor, magnetic field or some light sources. Sometimes simply reversing the polarity of an AC power cord will cure it.

On jvc tdw11

the line out of a tape deck is about 1 volt peak, the output of a turntable is about 3-5mV on average.
Not sure what issue you are having but the turntable cannot be directly plugged into the cassette deck for recording LP to cassette. it would have to go through the receiver.
