DHR 1000 problems

Hi
Can you offer some advice ? My DHR 1000 suddenly started fast forwarding in the play mode. I couldn`t stop it.
Any button I push on the machine resulted in fast forward ! UGH.
However, when using my editing program on my attached PC, I am able to control all functions, except eject tape.
Any suggestions ? I`d greatly appreciate your help.

Thanks,
Mike Comeau

Sounds like a keyboard problem, but check all the electrolytic caps -- bad caps sometimes produce strange symptoms.

    Capacitors are electronic components that are used to isolate DC voltages while passing signals to other circuitry, or to filter any ripple on DC power supplies. Their internal construction uses a liquid electrolytic, and as they age, it dries out and their function is reduced. You may need to take the deck to a local repair shop to have the caps properly tested and replaced if needed.

Denon DRM 740 tape does not play


hmmm...sounds like the transport motor/foot are stuck..open it up, and inspect around those items(where the tape actually clamps down) and see if you can see anything in there. Might even be a bug, no fooling..

as to repairs..you are most likely talking some major money, and a long time in the repair depot, which I believe is in Rio..I'll check that for you while you do this part.

Why will the Pioneer RT 707 not work in playback mode?


No it is the same motor for both functions. Just check does the record/play switch operate or move when you operate the record function? I have a hunch that is the problem it may also be that the switch contacts are dirty or worn.Try to play a recording you made on another machine if it does sound and play on the other machine then the problem can only be this switch. Some more upstairs decks do have separate amplifiers for play and record .Nakamichi. Studer Revox Tandberg Uher and the such comes to mind These are those machines offering "Off tape" recording monitor. Then it will sport three heads and not only two I hope this gives clues where to start looking for problems

Suddenly my Sony M-2000 Microcassette Transcriber will not PLAY. The tape will Rewind and Fast Forward fine, but when you push PLAY, it just beeps and won't move. Any ideas?


Just talked to Exec. Communication Systems. He said that the play motor is not turning (the rewind and fast forward uses a separate motor) and the problem is either the belt or the motor. They can repair them at $82.00 plus parts and shipping.

Forward fasts on its own


you may want to try fast forwarding at 2x (that is, press the FF key twice), although the speed will be faster, it may actually stop for you, when you press play, rather than going to the end.

Recently repaired one of these with what appeared to be a power supply problem; found several defective capacitors on the drive board. The symptoms were similar to what you are seeing.
