What is the make and model of the unit ? so little info. but my best guess is the motor, or belt. best probibility is the drive belt is shared by both decks therefore the tape decks woun't engage or move the tape along the tape path. look for broken belt inside or a belt that is slipping. the model # would be helpful to find the part # you need or for that matter the size of the belt ( to order PRB belt equiv.)

Hi,

Most tape problems would be mechanical in nature. I am venturing a guess that the belt(s) are cut. If your brand/model uses two (2) separate motors, then either both belts are cut (unlikely) or the regulator circuitry powering these motor(s) are defective. In some instances, the logic circuitry (especially those with dubbing features) maybe at fault.

Corrective procedures would entail opening the unit for a look and see. This of course would require that you be familiar with electronics circuitry & mechanical components, use of a DVM and possibly even soldering. Should you be uncomfortable going this route, perhaps it will be to your advantage to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Incidentally, should the downtime and cost of repair be no longer economically reasonable, then perhaps purchase of a new unit might have to be considered.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Trying to record music from my dj equipment not sure how to connect


out put from the dj stuff to the input lines on the amp your using to record on, once the CD or tape, or whatever your recording onto, is set to record, it should pick it right up , now if your doing all of this off your DJ equipment everything that's used, from record players, to CD to tape, will be run through the main amp your using, if the selection switch is set to whatever, you should be able to just turn on the unit your recording to, and it will pick it up , everything leading to the main amp will be plugged into, a line in, and some, ( tape player ) will also have a line out, ( so should the cd player if its a recordable one, which in turn would be supplying the lines output to each unit .

How do I record a CD from an album on a turntable?


Assuming you have a functioning turntable either self-pre-amplified or through a component (such as a receiver or integrated amp) with an internal Phono preamplifier just connect the self-preamplified TT directly to the analog inputs on the CD Recorder; or connect the CD Recorder to the receiver / integrated amp as if it is an analog tape deck (which it functionally is in this case).

How can I connect my CD-RW880 recorder to the


Make sure the phonograph is connected to the Phono Connectors. Hook up your CD recorder to the tape. The play connectors on the CD recorders can connect to the tape play connectors on your stereo. The record connectors on your CD recorder connect to the record outputs on the tape connectors on your stereo. You can also connect you CD recorder to the VCR connectors if you are using an audio tape as your source. All of the outputs and inputs are the same level except the phono.

How do I record from one tape deck to the other?


Put your "blank" in the deck with the record button, normally red button and press rec/play and pause at the same time, put your "origional" in the other deck and press play and pause at the same time, then un-pause both at the same time. Make sure that the hifi is set to tape as if you record tape to tape when listening to radio foe example, you will get a strange "mix tape" of your origional and the radio.

Converting Audio Cassettes to CDs


First off I assume you have the manual for you're 5700. if not a PDF copy is here
http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000027911.pdf

Assuming you have a standalone tape deck that has phono inputs and outputs connection and recording recording should be easily achieved.
Forget the coaxial unless of course your tape deck has digital outputs.
Assuming it hasn't just connect the two output sockets from the tape dec which may be labelled REC out left and REC out right to the Line in (L) and Line (R) of the CD recorder.
The physical setup is now complete.
The increment level they refer to in the manual offers you a choice of 3 final decibel output levels in other words how loud it will be when it is finally recorded onto the disc.

the last paragraph on page 16 is relevant to the setup described above.

Page 15 of your manual is all you need to achieve tape transfer to CD.
follow the steps below and choose ANALOG the source to be played is your tape deck so once the process has begun press the play button on your tape deck and you should get a decent recording. Leave everything else at their default settings until you get a better understanding of how to tweak your recordings.
Personally I transfer audio tapes directly to my PC and Audio edit them until they are perfect but I've been doing this for years.

Good luck


here's a snippet

To record from an external source:
1. Turn power ON.
2. Place a recordable audio disc (CD-R or CD-RW) label side up
in TRAY II.
3. Close TRAY II. (When a blank disc is placed in TRAY II, the display
will show BLANK.)
4. Press INPUT until the source you want to record is selected.
DIGITAL OPTICAL:
record a source connected to the DIGITAL IN (OPTICAL) terminal.
DIGITAL COAXIAL:
record a source connected to the DIGITAL IN (COAXIAL) terminal.
ANALOG:
record a source connected to the analog LINE IN jacks.
5. Select the desired mode of track division (track number
assignment) by pressing the MANUAL/AUTO button (see the
ADVANCED RECORDING section for more information).
6. Press the RECORD button.
The unit enters record pause mode.
The PAUSE [ ] icon and REC blink on the display.
7. Press the PLAY (ENTER) [ ] button of TRAY II to start recording.
8. Play the source to be recorded.
• During digital recording, if the input signal stops for 5 seconds,
recording will stop.
• During analog recording, if the input signal stops for 20 seconds,
recording will stop.
• If the unit detects copy-prohibit signals during recording,
CAN’T COPY appears on the display and recording is stopped.
To stop recording: Press the STOP [] button
To temporarily pause recording: Press the PAUSE [ ] button.
Remember that every time recording is paused or stopped,
a new track number will be assigned.

Want to connect the cd player to a turntable in place of a receiver


Right, so you have a turntable, which I assume was working fine before? It must have been connected to an amplifier or receiver. Keep this connection between your record deck & amp/receiver AS IT IS.

You want to make CDs from your vinyl? The best way to do this is to use the amp/receiver's tape/md/record loop. This "loop" sends the signal you are listening to from the amp to your CD recorder, and also allows you to switch to "tape" to monitor your recording during, or after recording, without deselecting your turntable (which would leave gaps in your recording). I will try to give you some useful information, but it all depends on your equipment & sockets, so if you're still lost after trying this, please let me know the make & model of your amp/receiver so I can check its functionality & give you some more helpful advice.

Your CD recorder has 2 pairs of phono (riaa) sockets, one to receive sound (input) and one to send sound (output) to & from your amp/receiver. You should connect the CD recorder's input (or record in) to the tape out (or record out) on the amp/receiver. And you should connect the CD recorder's output to the amp/receiver's tape in. Set your amp/receiver to phono (or however you usually have it set to listen to your turntable, and you should be set to record. When starting recording, I recommend that you use a CD-RW (a re-writable disc) so you can have a play around & get a good recording level that doesn't distort without wasting any discs.

Some amps/receivers don't have tape/md/record loops, in this case things can be a little more complicated & you might need to add a junction/switching box in order for it to work. I can help you with this too.

So best of luck & let me know how you get on.

Something that seems to come up a lot here & worth pointing out is that your dedicated AUDIO CD recorder will not accept data discs, only audio ones. That will be ones that say 80mins, rather than 700MB. These are a little more expensive but your recordings ought to be more reliable.

Recording


It will record any line level source (CD, MD, tape, tuner). You can only record vinyl records if you have a phono pre-amp.

The best way to use a CD recorder is to use the "tape loop" on your amp/receiver. Does your amp/receiver have a "tape in" and a "tape out"? If it does you should connect your CD recorder to these in/outputs. That way, whatever your amp or receiver is set to listen to, is what you'll be recording.
