Question about Technics Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

Technics SC-CH770. Tape deck just keeps clicking when trying to listen to a tape, it tries to go forward then it tries to go back but then just stops. When I take the tape out it has moved a little and there is a small amount of spare tape coiled inside the cassette which is easily wound up. The fast forward or fast reverse do not operate either, it just results in the same thing happening as above.

Where is pre out im having trouble hooking up amp and eq


You have to use the TAPE 2 (or monitor) on the receiver. It will take two sets of RCA cables. Both the receiver and the EQ will have an input and an output.

  • Run the output/REC (from TAPE 2) to the input on the EQ.
  • Then, run the input from the receiver (TAPE 2 again) to the output on the EQ.
The EQ will have another 2 sets of RCA jacks to hook up a second tape deck (because you used the jacks on the receiver for the EQ). You don't have to hook anything to these if you don't want to, or don't have a second tape deck.

The receiver will have a monitor button, which most of the time is labeled as TAPE 2/MONITOR. Select whatever input you want to use (CD, Tuner, Aux, etc.), then press the MONITOR/TAPE 2 button. When that is on, the EQ will be in the audio chain - you'll be able to use the EQ to adjust the sound. If you turn the MONITOR off it will take the EQ out of the audio chain - the EQ settings won't affect the sound.

Keep in mind, the EQ will also have a button to select the TAPE 2 input. If you have a second tape deck hooked up to the EQ, this is how to use it. Make sure that the tape input is off on the EQ, if you aren't listening to that second tape deck.

Connect the RCA Outputs of the Tuner to the RCA inputs for Tuner on the amp.
Connect the output of the Tape Deck to the Tape Input on the amp.
Connect the input of the Tape Deck to the Tape Output on the amp.

Select Tuner on the amp to listen to the tuner.
Select tape Monitor to hear the Tape Deck(s).

Slow tape speed on reel to reel tape deck


My TC-230 has the same problems and it is mechanical. Actually, its real hard to say what your problem is, but it is most likely the pinch roller is to tight on the piece that is connected to the motor. This extra tension is from a spring inside the machine and, when in storage for a long time with the machine set to stop, extra pressure builds up on this spring. Try leaving it unplugged on fast forward/play overnight. that might help.

DEAD LEFT CHANNEL!!


The most common problem is a dirty record<>play switch inside the unit. Try this: Using a blank tape, press and release record/play buttons several times. This can clean the switch a bit. Then play a tape. If it fixes the problem, then you need to take the unit apart and use a plastic safe spray cleaner on the switch (Check at Radio Shack, their tuner cleaner Catalog #: 64-4315 will work fine). Spray it into the switch and then work the switch with the buttons several times.

Hope that helps...

Kenwood KX-W6080 dual stereo cassette tape deck


I have the same unit which had the same problem. It has to do with dirty contacts on each tape mechanism.

Remove the main cover and look down on each tape mechanism. You will see 4 contacts on each unit. These come in contact with the tape. Remove each unit by removing 4 holding screws.

You will now be able to spray some contact cleaner into the front of the plastic contact cover. I removed the covers on both of the second from the right contacts so that I could clean them with an abrasive. These are the main ones.

Put everything back the way it was and the tape deck should work great.

Tape deck not working


Sounds like a motor problem. Try turning the motor by hand to see if it's bound up.

HOOKING UP A STEREO EQUALIZER


I bet your receiver has a Tape Monitor Loop and your EQ has one, too.

Run the EQ into the Tape Monitor loop - all out's on one to in's on the other.

Then run the deck to the EQ Tape Monitor, same connection pattern but REC may be substituted for IN and Play(back) for OUT.

The EQ also has a switch that decides if it will affect the Source or the Tape. So the EQ can be used for recording or playback of a tape PLUS any other analog source you listen to.
