RCA 4462 is actually the catalogue number for a vinyl LP by Brian Auger - are you sure you have quoted the correct model number ?

SOURCE: "REMOVE THE CASSETTE" displays when I put in a tape.

Same problem appears on another thread at fixya.com
http://www.fixya.com/support/t260350-tape_acceptance

villagidit posted a solution there that worked for me.

The same problem exists apparently on the ZR200 which is where villagidit found the solution.

Basically all it involves is thumping on the side opposite the display. I tried the thump once with no effect. I gave it two more thumps and the problem went away. Not really a solution. But it was satisfactory for me to be able to get the camcorder working long enough to transfer all my DV video onto DVDR..

Seems something comes loose in these Canon camcorders (presumably a connector of some sort.) There are 10 votes for this solution on the other thread as of 5/19/2008.

SOURCE: Tape problem, Elura 100

I called the factory and they said to send it in for evaluation.  While packing it up, I dropped it and lo and behold it started working.   Even though it started working, I decided to send it in to the factory and they found something "loose" inside and repaired it at no charge.

SOURCE: Tape is stuck in my Sony handycam DCR-PC101

I have managed to eject my tape by powering 4.5 V the little motor which drives the eject mechanism.
Problem is that you have to dismantle half the camera to do this (be very careful with the flexy wires they are fragile) and I wouldnt' do it without the service manual.

SOURCE: canon es900 8mm camcorder won't allow tape insertion

Canon ES series camcorder was designed with 1000 hour capacitors on the processor boards. When the time comes these capaictors loose value and create problems for the main computer to communicate with other mechanical system in the camcorder. We were able to service well 7 years ago but the life of these component has aged too much to make it good anymore. I wish I have a better news for you but the success repair on 'ES model is very slim and if repaired, the labor charge may run many times over of the value of this camcorder. You can probably obtain a newer used camcorder at decent price and get all you tapes into DVD quick. Good luck -James

RCA 4362 button will not work I dnt know what going on. Everything else works. The mic is still good. But when I put the tape in all I see is "Tape" and when I press the REC button nothing at all.


This was manufactured in 1999 - this makes it at least 17 years old. If I were you, I would wish it a happy retirement, and replace it with a more up-to-date camcorder with better optics, a digital image capture system, and which is far lighter in weight and more portable.

I have an rca portable radio tape and cd player RCD175, and it plays good, but wont play cassette tapes. I put the tape in and press pas and the play button wont stay pressed in. What causes that?


Hello
It is due the mechanism trouble to your set. The casette tape deck mechanism should be troubleshooted. It is a skilled work. Just contact any experienced service technician to make this set right.

I'm running a tape player into one of the mic channels, then out the tape out; problem is any stereo presence is lost. Is it possible to run a 1/8" to RCA in the RCA in, route that to the level meter/main...


Each mic channel is MONO. You could use a 1/8 stereo splitter cable into two mic channels and then PAN them opposite to retain the stereo.

You can also use a splitter cable into the 1/4 inch stereo inputs on the mixer. The 1/8 inch plug must be a stereo plug that then splits to two RCA plugs or two 1/4 inch plugs.

Note that the manual specifies that the Tape/CD out is merely paralleled off the mains out. This means that your main fader controls the level to the CD/TAPE output... which may mean your main output has to be too loud to get adequate output from the CD/TAPE outs to be effective. This would require balancing the levels into your external amp better.

Tape keeps getting ejected


This unit requires the rubber parts to be replaced. The loading sequence is not completing properly. The VCR will eject the tape when the sequence fails as a safety measure to prevent damage to either the VCR or the tape.

Parts cost for this should not be more than $10.

Canon XM2 Chewing tapes


This seams to be the problem, all the time, plus the sound goes off on most of theses camcorders, and the only way they will work is with an boom, mic.

Could I use an tape clearer when it says eject?

Equalizer connections


Usually you hook your equalizer between the pre out and main in RCA jacks and then open the connection between the pre and main with a switch. If your unit doesn't have pre out/ main in jacks then I have seen it done by putting your equalizer between the tape in and tape out jacks and then select that tape function on your front panel. The tape out goes to eq. in and the eq. out goes to tape in. Good luck.

Kenwood KX-W6080 dual stereo cassette tape deck


I have the same unit which had the same problem. It has to do with dirty contacts on each tape mechanism.

Remove the main cover and look down on each tape mechanism. You will see 4 contacts on each unit. These come in contact with the tape. Remove each unit by removing 4 holding screws.

You will now be able to spray some contact cleaner into the front of the plastic contact cover. I removed the covers on both of the second from the right contacts so that I could clean them with an abrasive. These are the main ones.

Put everything back the way it was and the tape deck should work great.
