High frequency squeeling

We have had these 2 machines for years and never had a problem, now both of them have a high pitch squeeling noise when we are listening to the tapes, is there anything we can do to filter out this incoming frequency?

    I'm having the same problem with high pitch sqealing noise. It can be deafening. It seems to be intermittent and I literally have to bang on it to stop it. I've only had the machine a month. Tech support is useless. Any other ideas?

    I have the same problem. I have done transcription for 32 years and have never had this problem. If it keeps up I will be deaf and won't be able to hear anything. Can someone offer a solution?

I have a BM-575 recorder. I can be dictating on it and then it just starts making a high pitched tone and will not allow me to record. Is this worth having fixed or just buy a new one. It is out of

This is why nothing ever goes wrong while it's in warranty still. Being electronic, your best off just replacing it and use the old one for parts if the new one screws up.

After erasing a tape I have a high pitched noise when I step on the foot pedal

If it works fine otherwise, I wouldn't spend much time worrying about it.

You might want to clean the heads and the capstan.

How do I get rid of the shhhhh noise when I record people talking? I'm a digital storyteller and bought the R-09r after others recommended it to me, but the shhhh noise is just as bad as a cheap recorder...

You need a low pass filter over the microphone, use a piece of high density, well in fact experiment with all types of densities of "Foam" and place it in front of the Mic Hole and this will work well, Sometimes wool or fur, or anything that will absorb all the low frequency signals without reducing quality will work, thats why you see those "Socks" on the microphones in the movies. Another way, is to get a VOX switch, this start recording at the sound of your voice, and although fast will usually cut off the first syllable or so, or the first few Msecs of time when it starts this can be used to advantage in this case.
Conversely, some VOX's that are built in, can cause a noise at beginning of recording.. Sometimes the noise is the Motor noise, and it's picked up as a low frequency noise, this can happen in cheaper units, an earth a bit loose, bad connections, to name a few.

On the Philips Pocket Memo 381 how do I get the voice activation to work? There is a switch marked VA but nothing seems to happen when i push it on.

When switch is on the machine will work as before but should stop about two seconds after you stop speaking. Note, this is really a noise activation switch and a high background noise will keep it going. It has been common practice to disable this feature as it is often been the cause of misunderstanding by users.

Dictaphone Expresswriter 2740 Tape Won't Move

The problem is with the capstan motor. More than likely it has developed a 'flat spot' and won't spin up. The clicking noise you hear is the solenoids trying to pull the heads into place, but because the motor isn't turning, it can't pull the heads into place.

High pitch sqealing noise

This is caused be a bad record switch. As a temporary solution, incert a blank tape, push the record switch, then stop. Repeat about 10 times. This may clean the contacts of the record/Play switch but it will probably need to be replaced.
