Lanier VW110 won't play

This unit only fast forwards and reverses. I have determined the gear between the forward and reverse capstan, along with the gear on the drive motor need replaced. I need a source for these two gears. Can you help?

Panasonic RR-930 does not backspace with or without pedal. It engages the mechanism but appears stuck when tape is inserted. Runs fine without tape in deck.

The ancient tape is junk. Buy a new one. You might also try slamming the old tape against a wall or desk to loosen up the tape layers. Then FF and RW all the way.

I have a Lanier Transcriber Model V W-210. Today the fast forward and the reverse did not work. I could hear a motor sound, but the tape did not advance or reverse. The "listen" worked, as did...

This unit most likely has a broken rewind/fast forward rubber belt. This is a very common problem and is easily fixed if you can acquire a new belt. Any place that services Lanier equipment should be able to easily fix this problem.

Which button is which

On the top of the device are the recording indicator and built-in microphone. On the front of the device to the right of the screen: (from top to bottom) ERASE, MENU, VOLUME UP, VOLUME DOWN
The MENU button cycles through these options in this order: Folder, record condition, record quality, AVR on/off, play condition, beep tone, set year/day/12 or time, key lock on/off
On the right side of the device: (from top to bottom) RECORD, STOP, PLAY, FORWARD*, REVERSE* *(FORWARD/REVERSE can be used in the MENU mode to select options)
On the left side of the device: (from top to bottom) External microphone jack Connects headphones
Here is an online (*.PDF format) manual for the recorder: MANUAL
I hope this information helps! :-)

The dictaphone wont rewind or fast forward and makes a bleeping noise

Does the tape move when you press rewind or fast forward.
If the tape moves for a few seconds then bleeps it sound like a sensor problem.
If it only bleeps when the rewind and fast forward are pressed and the play is ok it sounds like the actuator motor is faulty,this motor enables the rewind and fast forward.
Hope this helps.

Speed on Lanier P-165 keeps changing. How can I fix it?

There is a fast play switch on the side of the unit. That switch may be failing. Try moving it back and forth repeatadly to clean up the contacts.

How do you erase dictation from a Lanier dictaphone?

While holding the 'Erase' button down, press the 'Rewind' or "Fast Forward' button. It will erase the tape while it rewinds or fast forwards.

Lanier Transcriber unit will not play

Most likley it is a bad motor or a broken belt. There is a seperate motor or FF and Rewind.. If the motor is bad it is likly that the motor control circuit board is bad also (motor shorts and takes out the board also). If there is no "click" when play is selected it could be the play solenoid is dirty and not engaging. I have repaired thousand of these units through the years and in spite of these issues they were a great sounding unit.

BTW this is true for the VW-210, VW-260, p-139 and simular units.
