Wish to repair speed control on BIC T-3 cassette deck. Have had several techs try to repair speed control to no avail. Tape speeds up randomly. Alvin & Chipmunks(:


Recorder fan hi! Check the voltage of your motor and then fit a generic motor to it. Check the belts and lubrication of the shafts of the capstan bush a small drop of sewing machine oil works wonders also check the roller geometry is it round and the tyre touching surface is it flat or is it bulged If bulged replace.

Tascam 122MKIII Cassette player/recorder is malfunctioning.


I have one here at my shop that does the same thing almost. I found a gear broken in the mechanism system. The flashing LEDs tells you that the system control IC can not get the transport where it is suppose to go. The Gear C as described in the manual was the problem in the deck here. The head base was in the up position in this unit and thus would not eject. My E mail is skywavebe@sbcglobal.net. Due to the amount of dis-assembly to get to the transport control section this might be a job for a technician.

What is the bias control's function?


The Bias control is used during recording. If you turn down the bias, you will get more highs, but the distortion will increase, and then start to increase dramatically if you back off the bias more.

As far as playing tapes from different decks goes.......

1..Does the tape that you recorded on your deck sound OK on your deck ?
2..Does the tape that you recorded on your deck sound OK on other decks ?

If 1 and 2 are true, then your deck is OK.

If the tapes recorded on a specific deck sound bar on yours, but 1 and 2 are true, then the other deck is faulty.

When a deck leaves the factory, the head is aligned to a " standard " tape. By standard tape I mean a very special tape recorded in such a way, that a tech can tell if the head is out of align and "tweek " the physical alignment of the tape head..

All decks are aligned just a little differently, but fairly close to each other.

first do the mechanicals....is the head of your deck spotlessly clean ?. Use 99% pure isopropanol alcohol and a cotton swab. Never use anything metal to clean the tape head. If you scratch the head, its toast.

If your deck is clean, plays its own recordings well, and those recordings play well on other decks, then your deck is not the problem.

Hope this helps,
Rob

Older Teac cassette decks


I had an Aiwa dual deck and by the way your describing it, when you select Cont. Play press play on one deck then play on the other. I am not sure if there's a difference as to which you start with. When the first deck is done playing both sides, the unit will goto the second deck and play both sides, then back to deck 1.

Motor speed needs to be regulated by PWM. Reducing the current (with a resistor) actually lowers the torque - which, with a given load, does result in reduced speed - however, different length tapes (60min vs 90min), as well as different quality, and even current position in the tape, will change the load and hence the speed. You need to regulate the speed via PWM. It's sometimes done on a small board built into the motor, in which case you'd have a round hole into which you could insert an INSULATED screwdriver (tiny flathead wrapped most of the way in electrical tape works). It may be done on the main board, in which case you could find a pot conveniently labeled "motor speed", or perhaps "pulse width" or "pwm" or something to that effect. Find it, mark its current position just in case, and turn it to see if it gets the effect you're after. And there are some tape decks in the world with no speed adjust - they are designed with a specific speed motor and the sizes of the wheels and gears are calculated for that speed. Also there may be a mechanical fault/malfunction causing the speed problem. An initial check and thorough cleaning of the capstan and pinch roller should be done. If there is a buildup of tape oxide or a piece of a broken tape wrapped around the capstan, the tape travel will be too fast (do to the effective increase in capstan shaft diameter). If the pinch roller isn't fully engaging, the tape can be getting pulled onto the takeup spool at a speed faster than the capstan control. A different source of trouble might be a slip clutch (possibly an idler/clutch assembly)which is binding, or otherwise not functioning the way it should. Another type of motor doesn't have it's speed controlled by an internal or external voltage.. instead, the motor has an internal centrifugal speed controller. This type of motor can be found on older tape decks, and might not have been utilized more recently. Good luck
