Be sure to check the cassette before recording for any rough spots, as this may cause the tape to rip while in the middle of your recording.

Not sure what kind you have, but normally to record you have to push RECORD and PLAY at the same time. If the record won't engage, check the erase protect on the cassette - on the top edge (away from the tape edge) are 2 plastic tabs. The one on the left is for the side facing up. If it is missing the tape is erase protected. If you are sure you want to record anyway a piece of scotch tape over the hole will allow it to record.

Depends on what cassette recorder you're using. For very cheap/small units and most recording boom boxes, (say 1980's and prior vintage) usually, hitting the record (REC) and play button at the same time starts the process. For higher end equipment that you might find in a stereo system, generally you just need to hit the record button.

The cassette itself must not be write protected. There is an area on the top right edge of the cassette used for that purpose. (The area on the opposite end is for the reverse side.) If the plastic tab is broken off the top of the hole, the cassette is protected on that side. You can record over a protected cassette by simply covering the hole with a small piece of tape.

Typically, to record on a cassette tape you must press BOTH "Record and Play" buttons at the same time and the tape recorder will begin to record.

Just bought a used Sony TCWR610, to reproduce some valued cassettes. Cannot get the B deck to record. There is a little red light that comes on that says REC, but deck does not turn as I start the tape...


I have the same tape deck. To do a copy on this machine you first press the normal speed button below synchro dubbing, then hit the pause button on the recording side to start the copy. It will automatically start both decks.

And to stop the recording hit either of the stop buttons.

I have not been able to record LP's. The instructions mention hooking up the cables to the receiver outputs down to the TDK deck. Which outputs? Tape, Aux,? I tried splitting off of my phono outputs with...


your phono outputs are a whole diff ball of wax than aux or tape etc, whole diff signal, all that they should run to is phono in on the receiver. You are using the cd recorder as a tape deck more or less, so use tape out to line in on the tdk, and tape in from tdk output. so..when spinning record, you have receiver set on phono, and the tdk should also be receiving that signal, to playback you would hit tape monitor button on the receiver and hear what the tdk has done, or is doing.

Magnavox TV: Somehow the record button on the remote will not record VCR. It ejects the tape and does not record. Please help. Thank you.


Try Using a new VHS tape. If the new tape ejects when press recording, the recording switch inside your VCR could be defective.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

Hey,

I just started to have the same problem, 5 grey lines and intermittent audio. I the settings and i tried different tapes and No Joy. Then I tried to record onto an old tapes to see if the new recording would do it and the camera showed me a strange icon for exposure. I set the exposure back to 'Easy' and Viola, I recorded and the playback is now clean. Even old tapes play OK now...

The settings must have gotten wacked somehow. I glad it worked out, good luck.

Recording


It will record any line level source (CD, MD, tape, tuner). You can only record vinyl records if you have a phono pre-amp.

The best way to use a CD recorder is to use the "tape loop" on your amp/receiver. Does your amp/receiver have a "tape in" and a "tape out"? If it does you should connect your CD recorder to these in/outputs. That way, whatever your amp or receiver is set to listen to, is what you'll be recording.

Shout if you need more help!

Help! Stopped Recording


Do you have a remote? Some camcorders you have to hit the record pause button on the remote and then hit pause. It then begins recording. I hope this works for you.
