Malfunctioning tape recorder or bad tape?

Hi -- very low tech problem here. I am a journalist and tape-recorded an interview. When I flipped the mini-cassette tape over, I noticed the tape was gone -- it had come off and was completely on the other side. The tape was a Maxell. Do you think my tape recorder is defective, or was it a bad tape? I had no problems with subsequent tapes, then it happened again about a week later. The tape recorder is a Memorex MB2186A.

    The tapes are brand new. The 2 defective ones are from the same batch of 9.

How old are the tapes? Unless the tape recorder doesn't shut off when it gets to the end of the tape, then I think the tape recorder is fine and it is probably just the tape.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

    I would try a different brand and see how they work. TDK brand tapes are pretty good.

    Maybe try buying 1 to test it out and see if it works any better.

    Good luck.

    Hope this helps.

I have a number of files on my digital recorder where I have recorded interviews. When I press play, it shows up the length of each interview and the countdown starts, but there is no sound, just a qu


Did any of the files ever playback with sound? You can record sounds, but that doesn't mean the recorder is picking them up. A bad connection, level control setting could be wrong.
Try to do another short recording. If you are using a microphone pull the jack out during recording and put it back in again. Then listen to the recording. If there is sound when the microphone is in and it goes when it is out, then there is a possibility that somehow you recorded the other stuff with no connection and that's why there is no sound. If there is no sound on the new recording at all, then you might have a faulty playback amplifier inside the device.

Low volume recording on reel to reel tape deck


Problem could be in either the record or playback circuits of unit. Try playing back a tape in another machine to see what the volume is like. If also low then the issue is with the record amp circuits.
Fixing will not be cost effective, however.

Zoom H4 recorded data disappearing


I have a H4 but not that problem. Have you tried recording when the H4 is charged? My guess is when low on battery, the H4 doesn't record.

My voice recorder won't turn on!!!


We had a similar problem (it wouldn't turn on), and it turned out that we hadn't taken off both layers of clear packaging from the batteries. It now works.

Locked file


The folder lock can oly be solved by chosing the option "format" in the sub-menu. But please copy the *.dss - files still resting at your card at your harddisk first.
When the recorder finishes the format procedure, all folders will be unlocked again.

The "Read-Only-Failure" will occur again at recorders with differend user profiles, when you put the switched-off recorder into the docking station first and switch the power button to "on". So avoid this constellation!
