Technic 1210 decks


I've recently moved house and brought my decks with me. I've just set them up and one deck is spinning like a washing machine, its way to fast. What could be the problem?

Re: Technic 1210 decks


do you know how many motors inside?
i.e. one each for pb/rec, reverse, fwd, or just one motor for all?

it is very likely that one of the pulley rubber loop is broken or hardened in time. so the motor spins by itself instead of gearing up the mechanism.

input me with more for detailed solution.

How do i connect a technicsl7 record player to a technic casseset deck rs 63ousd

It needs to go to a receiver or integrated amp for a Phono preamp first then the record outs of the preamp or receiver will go to the tape deck at line level (-10 dBm) signals. These go into the line in RCA jacks.

Sony tape deck won't play tape.

Dual well decks are among the cheapest and poor designs resulting in the problem you are having. Those decks that are well built may still need belts after a long time but the final result of the repair is a machine that will give good performance like when it was new while the dual cassette deck give the poor performance and then less due to wear that was had when they were new- figures like Wow and Flutter, speed accuracy and they rarely put really good heads in these as well. I fix them for clients but they never come up to a Teac C-3RX deck quality wise. Just so you know I have been working on tape deck for 40 years and even at Sony at one time. The ES line was the only good dual cassettes made and they have their problems too.

I´ve forgotten in what order I should connect my old (80´s) separate modul hifi system´s remote cables. It shuts down imadiatly when you try to start it with the remote. If I disconnect the...

I would have thought that it should go from the amp to the tuner,then the tape deck and finally the CD deck.

I'm suspecting that your tuner is faulty and thats whats causing the system to shut down

Tacsam DA 30 has no playback

Chances are that pre-amp IC that controls both channels has failed. Follow the wires from the tape head and trace the signal. Better still start with the output of the deck and trace backwards. If you touch the audio circuit with an insulated screwdriver (don't short anything) it should buzz. when you find something that buzzes on one side (coming out) but doesn't buzz on the otherside (signal going in) then you have found what needs to be replaced.
PS don't touch the power section.
