Telex Copyette EH duplicator

The recording side does not turn at the same speed as the original tape ?
Is there something I can do to fix this or must it GO someplace? We use it for the church shut-ins.
Thank you,
Judy

    This is used each week to record our church services and delivered to our church family shut-ins... It was working beautifully until last week when a Sony tape seems to be slipping or something, it wasn't turning right. Then a Memorex tape and it recorded fine, but this week, won't work on any.

    hey sweet_rascal ill leave this one to you respect man soz didnt know you posted

  • paul proctor Mar 05, 2008

    Hi no its not a problem but some tape players have hi speed setting so that the player can record from tape to tape at higher speeds so as your doesnt have it then that wont be the problem.
    Sweet_rascal's answer is not far from being wrong as their is nothing inside mechanically that can be adjusted to alter the speed of the tape its going to be down to a component failing.
    But you will probably find it alot cheaper to replace the tape deck then get it repaired.
    Also does it have to be a tape recorder cant you use a different format as they are fading out tape format and in few years youll find it difficult to get spare tapes.
    Do you only use it to record from one tape onto the other if this is the only purpose then you could by a cheap hifi that has twin tape and you can use this the same as you use the one you have got let me know if you need further assistance ok

  • paul proctor Mar 05, 2008

    What has happened is the tape that was slipping has caused damage to the drive motor as sweet_rascal said their is not much you can do yourself as their are no servicable parts it will require soldering in new parts and sourcing new parts depending on the age it might not be financially worth it as you can pick these up for next to nothing even a stereo with two tapes allows you to record from tape to tape so this would be the best option as getting repaired can cost as much as a new recorder so i would by even a second hand stereo that has twin tapes as this will have the feature you want.
    Anything that has twin tape decks will allow you to record from tape to tape you can pick these up for new for next to nothing.

How old is the set?

Posted on Mar 05, 2008

  • dewan nafees ahmed Mar 05, 2008

    i think due to age this recoreders motor is going bad.

    you will probably need a new one very soon.

    if this motor is removed and serviced the set will go on normally.

    but this problem cant be cleared without a service surely.


    thank you

    good luck

Telex Copyette 123, getting different speeds when duplicating audio tapes.


You might be able to find someone to work on it but there is no parts support and not many people want to work on them for that reason.

Telex Copyette 1-2-3: Master well wraps tape around the capstan.


Tape wrapping on a capstan shaft is commonly due to a sticky pinch roller or capstan shaft but is also because the take-up reel table does not provide enough torque or tension to gather up the tape. The Teac MTT160 cassette is a test tool we use to determine what the deck is doing torque wise. Telex probably has something similar. I worked with a guy who worked at Telex in the tape business- He did not talk about them much but he did say they had a lot of belts in them. Maybe you are just dealing with a belt that needs to be replaced. Lubrication also tends to be needed at every rotation point as well. That would include reel tables. I hope this gives you some help as Telex repairmen are getting to be like Hens teeth.

Everytime I try to copy a tape, there's a big noise on the duplicate ones, even if the recording level is zero! I cleaned the heads with alcohol, but the problem remains. I have a TELEX ACC-4000. Many...

Can I use this machine (telex copyette 123)to cancel old cassettes by copying a blank cassette onto three cassettes??


You should be able to do that with it, but note that this is a mono copying machine rather than stereo, so it may not entirely write over the existing recording if it is in stereo and the heads are in a slightly different position, but that would be the same for a stereo recorder too.
I think it will work, but really for decent recordings, I wouldn't recommend 'recycling' tapes in this way, they deteriorate fairly quickly.

Telex copyette 1-2-3 you can hear both sides at the same time


Clean the heads, oil the spindles.
Basic problem is the tape alignment is off a little. Could be caused by too much tape tension causing it to wander.
Hope Ya Fix It. So ya can spread the word!
