Question about Panasonic RR-830 Desktop Cassette Transcriber / Recorder

1 Answer

My Panasonic RR-830 turns on, but the cassette won't FF, Rewind or Play. It has been working fine for a couple of years but then quit when I was playing back a tape using the foot control.

    Is this something that is fixable? Can I replace the belt myself (or have someone who is handier than I am do it)? I tried to find a repair shop/person in this area but none came up when on clicked on the link to repairers in my area.

Most likely the internal belt has broken.

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.

The DVD works fine but the VCR doesn't play, rewind or forward tape.


l would have a look inside to see if when a tape is inserted it loads and will ff and rew, if the transport that moves the tape has failed it will account for what is happening.

It could be the rewind solenoid is jamed up or there is a switch that comes loose under the tape deck. Either way, it will need to be serviced.

It won't play, rewind or fast forward.


Most likely the belt is broken or has jumped off. This requires some major disassembly, but the belts can be purchased for about $2. If the belt is okay, then check motor leads, they often break off.

Could be a few problems. Sometimes the lube dries up on the solenoid so it is not engaging. Could have the rewind switch on the circuit board broken loose. possibly needs belts as well.

The headset you are using is a stereo headset. This unit uses a mono headset. Look at the end of the headset. If there is 2 black rings, it is stereo. You can get a stereo to mono adapter at Radio Shack for about $2.50.

Panasonic RR-830 only rewinds and fast-forwards, will not play


If the foot pedal is pluged in, press the play button and then you should be able to activate it with the pedal.

Lanier Transcriber unit will not play


Most likley it is a bad motor or a broken belt. There is a seperate motor or FF and Rewind.. If the motor is bad it is likly that the motor control circuit board is bad also (motor shorts and takes out the board also). If there is no "click" when play is selected it could be the play solenoid is dirty and not engaging. I have repaired thousand of these units through the years and in spite of these issues they were a great sounding unit.

BTW this is true for the VW-210, VW-260, p-139 and simular units.
