Re: eats tapes

First thing to do is make sure the capstand wheel is moving and that it is clean, then if thats working clean the rubber wheel with rubber cleaner.

Need to know how to hook up my cd player to this vsx 456 pioneer reciever and the out to my 8 track recorder. Thanks Nick

Have you looked at the manual? It's basic hook-up.

Any source's Outs go to Ins on the receiver.

Tape recorders attach to tape loops (outs to ins).

Digital sources will not appear at analog outputs.

My player is brand new. It keeps eating my tapes. Should I send it back?

Should be under some sort of warranty if it's brand new. I would call the manufacturer and see if they can send a replacement or fix yours for free under the warranty

I have an Akai X-1810D unit. When I try to transfer a reel onto a blank 8-track, the end result I get on my 8-track is a lot of flutter. The 8-tracks have new foam pads. I used to transfer a 3 3/4 speed...

take a q-tip, cap full of peroxide (clean 8 trk heads / roller).......... make sure nothing is near 8 trk to cause any kind of vibration.......... have you recorded onto these 8 trk tapes (if so try erasing it by recording blank, no sound onto it then rec your music)

My clock is eating the batteries so fast I'm changing them every month,I'm not buying the cheap batteries. Thanks Jackie

hi Jackie. I can assist you. In electronics terms, your clock has a short in it which is draining the battery every month. There is no easy and quick fix to this so while you are out shopping for new batteries, also take a look at a new battery operated clock. Good luck with it.

Recording from other sources

The tape outputs is what you need to use. If there is not output on those tape outs, you have a preamp problem I'm afraid. I have seen these go out in the past when someone hooks up an output to the tape outputs and blows out the preamp IC. Good Luck
