Re: need patch cords

Sorry, unit was built sharing power supply with amp, hence no power connector or standars rca sockets. Cost cutting exercise, so without the rest of the system you may have problems getting the unit to operate even if you could work out the connections to it. I know its not a cure but a "fixya" rating would help my profile in here. Thanks

Hookup soney duel tape deck to onkyo equalizer

If you are trying to equalize the sound from one half to the other ... you cannot, unless there are separate INPUT and OUTPUT jacks on the back. Otherwise you will need a second cassette deck.

Hookin equalizer to tape deck and recever

The equalizer I have seen have Line in, line out, tape in, tape out and that is how you utilize a unit like this. The line IN goes to the receivers tape record out. The line out goes to the receivers Tape play in or monitor, The tape deck hooks to the equalizer. The record or input of the tape deck hooks to the EQ record out, the Tape decks output hooks to the EQ's Tape in connectors. All these are stereo so there are left and right sides which you need to keep consistent. Red on a cable means Right, the white or black on cables mean Left or the top RCA connector on most equipment.
When playing back a tape the tape monitor is turned on with the receiver and left on. The way you record on tape from any source of the receiver is to select that source and it should go to the equalizer. Then the deck should record that source. To play a tape of the deck hooked to the equalizer then just press the tape monitor button on the EQ otherwise the Equalizer will just act as a loop and equalize any signal source that is coming from the receiver and the tape monitor on the receiver should stay on most of the time. Some equalizers have two tape inputs so you would hook another deck to that input and the owners manual of the equalizer should say how to select buttons to transfer tape signals from one to the other. If you master the concept of inputs and output of audio equipment then this hookup becomes another easy thing to do.

Where can I have my 15 year old Sony Model TC-WR465 Stereo Tape Deck Repaired? The problem appears to be mechanical. The tapes will not advance on either side of the unit.

Depend on your location and willingness to ship the unit. The cost of the repair must also be weighed in. If you don't want to put $100 into it I don't think most shops these days will want to open it up. Dual cassette deck are notorious for failure due to cheap design. Look around at all the problems. I have been fixing units for 40 years and even at Sony and Sony authorized.
I can look at it at Skywave Tape Deck Repair in Chicago area if you want. Google it.

My tape deck is making noises while operating.

As in squeaking noises? Or are you getting static and stuff on the audio itself? If it's just squeaking and stuff, then you can open it up and add a little bit of WD40 or silicone spray to the moving parts to loosen them up.
