After looking @ the owner's manual online, I can see why you're confused. Man! It shouldn't that tough. You can always tell when the Chinese translate anything into English. If look you closely enough on pages 18 & 19, whenever the directions refer to "manual recording" one of functions that they don't specify is the recording of 1 tape onto another. The way that this manual was written the writer apparently didn't envision that anyone would want to do tape-to-tape (dubbing) recording.

On pg 18 it says to load a recordable (blank) tape into the B side deck. Easy enough. Next comes the tough to discern part.
In section 2 where it mentions "For Manual Recording and Sound Mixing:" Select the desired source to record or mix. In your case that would be the A deck. Here is where they needed to take a little time and explain that tape-to-tape recording is one of those possibilities. Notice that you'll need to place the B deck in standby. Then select the REC PAUSE/START to start the B deck & then (this is another place where they needed to be more clear) you'll need to simultaneously start (press the play button) the A deck which would be the recording source. In the future just remember that the A deck is the source and the B deck is the destination.

Good luck.

That is a fantastic post. You explained it beautifully right up to the point where you explain how to do it. You're right, they did not explain specifically how to do tape to tape dubbing. But I did not understand what you meant by putting the B deck on standby. It turns out that when the REC PAUSE/START button is press once it is in pause mode (standby). So it must be pressed twice before recording can be started. No need to press anything simultaneously. Once the record button has been put into start mode, play may be pressed at any time to start recording.

NEED operators manual for ITRR-501 retro 5 in 1. lost mamual. NEED TO KNOW how to record to CD Disc. Also will it record fro records to disc and record cassett to disk. PLEASE SEND me a manual. OR a zerox...


The unit will record to CD from the turntable, cassette or the AUX port. Place a blank CD-R or CD-RW in the CD tray. (Note: CD-RW discs may not play on other CD players.) Press the Phono, Tape or Aux button to select your audio source for recording. (For Aux, you will need to connect the source device to the AUX port in the back of the ITRR-501.) Wait for the CD disc to load and check for any indicator lights (you should see the "NO TOC" and "CD" or "CD-RW" lights lit). Select your Track increment (or Auto Manual for unattended track formation).Press Record button and the up arrow to adjust the recording level.

If you are recording from an LP, put the tone arm down on the record. For all sources, press Play. Press Stop to end recording or Pause to temporarily break the recording. Press the Track Increment button to advance the track number if you are doing so.

To finalize your CD-R to make it readable on all players: after stopping the recording, press the Finalize button.

The manuals for Innovative Technology products are available here: http://www.ithomeproducts.com/support . The products are listed in alphabetical order. The direct link to the ITRR-501 manual in English is http://www.ithomeproducts.com/sites/default/files/pdf/ITRR-501.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I have a yorx L350 sound system, is it possible to record from cassette to cd, read manual nothing listed that I can find maybe there's a hidden path. thanks


As long as they are 2 separate units,it should be no problem.Play the cassette.Insert the cassette out plugs into the CD input plugs and record.As long as the CD has recording ability,it should work fine.Tape like a minute and check the CD before you do the whole thing just to make sure it is taping fine.Good luck!

Vol problem


Here is the entire troubleshooting section from the manual.

Your problem is presumed to be a shorted speaker wire. I assume you're not getting the failure ONLY at extremely high volume levels.

Care and maintenance
Occasional care and maintenance of the unit and the software
are needed to optimize the performance of your unit.
To clean the cabinet
Use a soft and dry cloth. If the unit surfaces are extremely
dirty, use a soft cloth lightly moistened with mild detergent
solution. Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol, benzine
or thinner.
To clean the tape heads
Dirty tape heads cause sound deterioration. After every 10
hours of use, clean the tape heads with a head cleaning
cassette. Refer to the instructions of the cleaning cassette.
To demagnetize the tape heads
Use a demagnetizing cassette after every 20 to 30 hours of
use. Refer to the instructions of the demagnetizing cassette.
Care of CDs
When a CD becomes dirty, wipe it from the center out with a
cleaning cloth. After playing a CD, store it in its case. Do
not keep it in hot or humid places.
Care of tapes
Store tapes in their cases after use. Do not leave tapes near
magnets, motors, television sets, or any source of
magnetism. Do not expose tapes to direct sunlight, or leave
them in a car parked in direct sunlight.

REFERENCE
Troubleshooting
If your unit fails to perform properly, check the following guide
and the relevant sections of the Operating Instructions.
There is no sound.
•Are the speakers and AC power cord connected properly?
The unit shut off suddenly.
•Possibly a short circuit in the speaker terminals.
Disconnect the AC power cord from the AC power outlet
and re-connect the speaker cords correctly.
The unit blacks out when the unit is turned off.
•Is ECO mode set to on?
Erroneous display.
•Reset the unit.
Poor radio reception.
•Check antenna connection. Adjust the antenna to find the
best reception.
•Move unit and antenna away from other electric appliances
and cords.
The tape does not run.
•Is the deck in pause?
Poor tape sound.
•Check for dirty heads. Clean them if needed.
•Use type I (normal) tapes.
Cannot record.
•Is the erasure prevention tab of the tape broken off? If so,
cover the detection slot with adhesive tape.
The CD player works poorly.
•Is the disc correctly loaded?
•Is the disc dirty?
•Is the lens affected by condensation? If so, wait
approximately one hour and try again.
Resetting the unit
If an unusual condition occurs in the display window or the
cassette deck, reset the unit as follows:
1 Press POWER to turn off the power.
If the power cannot be turned off, disconnect the AC power
cord, then plug it in again.
2 Hold down s and press POWER.
Everything stored in memory after purchase is cleared.

Loud clicking


Open the cassette deck and use a pen to push down the heads. After this it probably works better to avoid using cassettes in this machine.

Cassette tape stuck and door won't open.


Ruan, A temporary fix, is to leave the right side panel off, position your latex gloved hand into the back, of the drive, turn softly, with one finger, the drive wheel, and the unit will unlock. You can now remove the tape cassette. Make sure the cassette tape is very, tight prior to installing it..
To complete a repair, takes a while for full explanation. Regards fmauka...

Cassette drive belts


There are a number of drive belt vendors online. One or more of them tell how to measure for replacement belts. All will list sizes of belts they sell. Google: cassette drive belts
