If it plays back a pre-recorded tape OK, then the tape head will be good. If it doesn't you might have problem, with either the head or the pre-amp stage.
However if it is playing back OK but not recording, then you have problem in the record circuit. Some tape decks physically switch the circuit when you press record. Pushing the record button will cause a switch to move position. In some cases dirt or dust can get into the switch and it doesn't connect properly. Switch cleaning fluid will correct the problem.
However the record circuit itself could be faulty. Perhaps an IC has developed a fault on one channel, which will need to be replaced.
Watching what happens when you press record with the top cover off, showing the workings, might point to some movement of the mechanism to reveal a faulty switch.
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.
for a start your title says "Problem with the Technics RS-TR272 Single Cassette Deck" So is it a single or double? i'm assuming it's a double,right only one of the decks records so put the blank tape into it make sure the tabs on the top of the tape haven't been broke or you'll need to cover the holes with the labels you get with the tape. put the tape with the music on it, in the other deck rewind them both then press "sync rec" & they should both set off.
I have the same tape deck. To do a copy on this machine you first press
the normal speed button below synchro dubbing, then hit the pause button
on the recording side to start the copy. It will automatically start
And to stop the recording hit either of the stop buttons.
On my model the Olympus Pearlcorder S909 there is a slide button on the end marked VCVA (variable control voice actuator). Switch it to that position then press record and away you go, voice activated recording!
C13 is what is called a "Protection Error". This normally happens because the if you look on the bottom edge of the minidisc itself you will see what looks like a plastic strip or tab at the bottom left.
Pull it to the left for it show fully and this will enable you to record onto the disc. Move it right, and this will PREVENT recording from taking place.
If you have the unit connected up by the optical lead and you're trying to record the audio from a DVD unit, the MD deck is probably telling you what you are trying to record is copy protected. I never use the optical lead, just hook it up by good quality interconnects and the recording you get is superb. Both DVD & CD audio!
All The Best! :-)
I also have an MR-929. The information that you need is in the 'Stereophonic 4 track stereo''. As stereo is only two tracks, there is another 2 tracks in addition to the one you are listening to. Wind the entire reel to the empty spool, and then play that. As you have to physically turn the reel over to do so, you should then hear the other tracks (or track, if recorded in mono).
I use my 929 to play my parents recording of my family from the late 60s, which were recorded on a valve (tube) Ferguson machine, which had a green "magic eye" level indicator, which as a child I found fascinating!
