if the take up side gets stuck it could feed excess tape and stop the mechanism. Look to see if both reels are turning when you push play. Remove cassette door for a better view if possible.
Make sure your tapes have NO slack in them. Fast forward and rewind one cassette all the way, then try again looking to see if both sides are turning. If not, you may have a belt that is old, stretched and slipping or it's split apart or just fallen off
Just connect the deck via tape 1 the out of the deck going to the in of the amp. While the out of the amp goes to the in of the deck.
The tape deck itself will automatically choose the player that plays the cassette. One will play the other will be on pause (if you press both play buttons) till the tape stops then the other will play. For recording from tape to tape one deck will be the copy and the other the copier. There should be a dubbing button which you press to record tape to tape. Some models have a high speed dub also. For recording from the amp unless both decks have record buttons you will only be able to record with one deck. Make certain the dub button is not set.
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.
First off I assume you have the manual for you're 5700. if not a PDF copy is here http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000027911.pdf
Assuming you have a standalone tape deck that has phono inputs and outputs connection and recording recording should be easily achieved. Forget the coaxial unless of course your tape deck has digital outputs. Assuming it hasn't just connect the two output sockets from the tape dec which may be labelled REC out left and REC out right to the Line in (L) and Line (R) of the CD recorder. The physical setup is now complete. The increment level they refer to in the manual offers you a choice of 3 final decibel output levels in other words how loud it will be when it is finally recorded onto the disc.
the last paragraph on page 16 is relevant to the setup described above.
Page 15 of your manual is all you need to achieve tape transfer to CD. follow the steps below and choose ANALOG the source to be played is your tape deck so once the process has begun press the play button on your tape deck and you should get a decent recording. Leave everything else at their default settings until you get a better understanding of how to tweak your recordings. Personally I transfer audio tapes directly to my PC and Audio edit them until they are perfect but I've been doing this for years.
here's a snippet
To record from an external source: 1. Turn power ON. 2. Place a recordable audio disc (CD-R or CD-RW) label side up in TRAY II. 3. Close TRAY II. (When a blank disc is placed in TRAY II, the display will show BLANK.) 4. Press INPUT until the source you want to record is selected. DIGITAL OPTICAL: record a source connected to the DIGITAL IN (OPTICAL) terminal. DIGITAL COAXIAL: record a source connected to the DIGITAL IN (COAXIAL) terminal. ANALOG: record a source connected to the analog LINE IN jacks. 5. Select the desired mode of track division (track number assignment) by pressing the MANUAL/AUTO button (see the ADVANCED RECORDING section for more information). 6. Press the RECORD button. The unit enters record pause mode. The PAUSE [ ] icon and REC blink on the display. 7. Press the PLAY (ENTER) [ ] button of TRAY II to start recording. 8. Play the source to be recorded. • During digital recording, if the input signal stops for 5 seconds, recording will stop. • During analog recording, if the input signal stops for 20 seconds, recording will stop. • If the unit detects copy-prohibit signals during recording, CAN’T COPY appears on the display and recording is stopped. To stop recording: Press the STOP  button To temporarily pause recording: Press the PAUSE [ ] button. Remember that every time recording is paused or stopped, a new track number will be assigned.
All of this applies to nearly any analog consumer audio gear...
If you have any Tape Deck and an Equalizer and only the one Tape Monitor loop you should place the EQ into that Tape Monitor loop, then place the Tape Deck onto one of the probable two Tape Monitors on the EQ as it sounds like you had here...
"When I had it set up with the graphic equaliser,pressing tape monitor on the amp and on the equaliser gave me play backfrom the tape player."
That setup will allow you to apply EQ to any analog source and the tape deck in record or playback mode.
However, if you want to remove the EQ and use the Tape Deck directly on the Tape Monitor just attach the deck's Playback cables to Tape Mon In (Play) and the deck's Record cables to the Tape Mon Out (Rec). Flip the Tape Mon control to hear the tape deck or monitor it while recording.
NEVER plug anything but a turntable into the Phono. It has a preamp that expects a ver ysmall signal from the cartridge AND it also has a severe RIAA Equalization curve which would result in grossly exaggerated frequency extremes if you managedto get a non-LP source into it. Likewise, turntables without internal electronics mut always use the Phono section of a receiver, preamp or integrated amp to get the boost and EQ they need.
if the heads are getting jammed in the up position it may be a failing capstan belt in the transport not disengaging the transport properly. replace the capstan belt. If one has failed both will probably be bad.
