Question about RCA RS2640 CD Shelf System

Loud buzzing when I insert a tape in my car's stereo

I use a cassette adapter in my 99 Camry to listen to my mp3 player when I drive, and today a very loud buzzing sound came from the tape player when I was driving. Thinking that my adapter had finally kicked the bucket (it was already giving me some issues with sound cutting out) I replaced it with a new one, thinking that would solve the problem. It didn't. The loud (and I mean very loud) buzzing sound persists with either one of the cassette adapters I use, leading me to believe it's a problem with the tape player itself. I know basically nothing about tape players, so I've got no idea how to fix this problem.

Please help!

Hiya, first try a normal cassette, see if that plays OK. If so the deck is probably fine, if not then the deck is faulty (probably not serious though and just a loose wire on the head).
If the connection between the tape and MP3 is a cable, the fault is quite likely there (if bluetooth then not). I strongly suspect the cable from the previous issues also.

Best of luck

How do I use my iPod adapter in the SX4 Crossover


<p>The SX4 is a small car produced and designed by Japanese automaker Suzuki. There is a vehicle that comes with the option of an iPod sound, but there are numerous adapters that can be purchased and installed for this purpose. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Buy a cassette adapter and the SX4 has a cassette player. Place the tape in the stereo. Connect the other end of the adapter into the iPod headphone port. Press "Play" on the deck. The adapter will play on the iPod as if it were output through a stereo cassette on the SX4. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Purchase a wireless FM transmitter. Connect the transmitter to the iPod. Tune in the FM radio station without a SX4 to use. Tune the transmitter on the same drive, and press "Play" on the iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Buy an auxiliary input, and installed by a professional if you do not have extensive knowledge of the years SX4 radio. Many retailers will provide free installation with purchase. The cable is connected to the auxiliary input on the stereo, and into the cockpit of the SX4. You can connect the headphones to your iPod while you listen through the speakers is the SX4. The sound is almost perfect. <br />

I have a JVC (stereo, radio, cassette, recorder) and it's buzzing


If it is only when the tape is running, it could be motor noise.
Worn bearing in the motor or maybe a suppressor has failed, if it has one.

probably the belt for the pullys inside are worn, if you can get replacement ones they are easy to fit, just open the case and slip the old one off and new one on.(may have to remove an internal cover also)

The cassette adapters are notorious for getting stuck in the deck. More often than not its the wire that comes out of it that causes it. The cleanest and safest way to remove the cassette adapter is to remove the radio, take off the top and "Help" it eject with your fingers or some narrow tool that may get behind it to push it forward and out. If you dont want to take the deck out of the dash, you can try pushing the eject button while manipulating the adapter wire, but I dont recommend it. Its just better to take the deck out. Good Luck

Phillips cassette adapter ploblems


I have the same problem with my tape adapter, I have found that a radio tuner adapter is the way to go. but if you insist on using the tape make sure if you stick your finger in one sprocket hole that the other sprocket turns too, and if it is a little difficult to turn, chuck it and get you a new one.

1995 Saab 900S Left speaker doesn't work when using tape player


sounds like the cassette adapter has a bad channel, or didn't fully seat into place. Try removing and re inserting, to play the other side of the adapter if the wires will allow it. Then auto reverse the cassette deck to allow a different portion of the cassette head to be used for the signal. Those cassette adapters are poor quality, and put alot of time on the mech.
