Question about Tascam 202MKIII Single Dual Cassette Deck

1 Answer

Tascam 202 Mk111

Is there a twin cassette recorder on the market similar to the above where you can play a tape on Deck (1) and record it at the same time on Deck (2)?

Also I use a shure SM57 mike to record but the background amp noise is
excessive when played back.

Most all twin well machines will play off one deck and record to the other.

using an outboard mic preamp will allow for less noise using the sm57. balanced mic cable with 3 pin xlr/cannon connections also reduce noise.

How do i hook up my tascam 122 cassette deck to my Nad 7155 reciever i tried

The RCA outputs sockets on the 122 connect to either tape 1 or tape 2 "PLAY". on the Nad.
The Line In Jacks on the 122 connect to the record of tape 1 or tape 2 rec of the Nad.
If you connect it to tape 1 connect both to that.

To listen to the deck you select either tape 1 or 2 depending which you have connected it too.

How do I get a stuck cassette tape out of the Tascam 202 MKiii

With this kind of mechanism you need to open the deck up and assist the cam wheel by hand to get the eject block and heads to go down to the stop mode. This is the only way to get a tape out without destruction to both tape and machine. I have done it a few times. If you can not do it yourself, I am in the Chicago area as Skywave Tape Deck Repair. I can get the tape out.

How do I dub using the onyx double cassette deck?

There should be a button or switch that will select the recording deck and the dubbing deck. You put a blank tape into the recording deck and the pre-recorded one into the play deck. Pressing the record button on the dubbing deck, on some models should start the play deck running. If not press play on that deck.

Kenwood KX-79 CW dual cassette hook up?

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.

My Play, Pause, and Record button will continuously blink on and off, which prevents me from opening the cassette door using the eject button to play a tape.

That would be me at Skywave Tape Deck Repair- maybe I have contacted you already through Thumbtack.
I can not say more here but if you search for tape deck repair in Chicago you no doubt will come across me sooner or later.
The only other person you would be qualified would be Russ Bachmann at New Jersey Factory service. We both worked at Teac factory service facilities and rose to high ranks at those facilities.

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 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,

Remote control for Technics RS TR 272 Dual Cassette Deck

a system remote is the only option for you here. The deck does not have its own remote receiver. Sorry to break the bad news to you.

Cassette tapes

try firmly banging the cassette onto a table top(with reels flat) a few times, then ff right through and rew a couple of times. this will layer the tape more evenly and hopefully allow the mechanism to play it. the takeup reel or autostop mechanism may be failing if the deck does not have enough torque to carry the tape and may require belts replaced or dried grease removed in the transport.

Dual Cassette Deck won't stop or auto-reverse

There is a tape tension sensor which, it appears, isn't working. Check to see if the linkage to this sensor may have been misaligned while you were replacing the belts. Also check to see that the sensor isn't binding or sticking.
