Telex EH 1-2-1 Single Cassette-Speed Drift

I have the above unit and find that when I play back the copy of the original tape, it has drifted up the scale about 4-5 notes, with the expected time compression. Since both spindles are driven with the same belt, how do I compensate for this.

Thanks,

Nick

    Thanks knightstar7 for taking the time to ponder and answer. As
    it turns out it was a lube issue. Both spindles are driven by the
    same belt, so theoretically it should make little difference how fast
    the motor turns? In any event, I pulled it apart and lube both
    spindles with Lubriplate and voila, normal speed has returned.

Telex Copyette 1-2-3: Master well wraps tape around the capstan.


Tape wrapping on a capstan shaft is commonly due to a sticky pinch roller or capstan shaft but is also because the take-up reel table does not provide enough torque or tension to gather up the tape. The Teac MTT160 cassette is a test tool we use to determine what the deck is doing torque wise. Telex probably has something similar. I worked with a guy who worked at Telex in the tape business- He did not talk about them much but he did say they had a lot of belts in them. Maybe you are just dealing with a belt that needs to be replaced. Lubrication also tends to be needed at every rotation point as well. That would include reel tables. I hope this gives you some help as Telex repairmen are getting to be like Hens teeth.

Everytime I try to copy a tape, there's a big noise on the duplicate ones, even if the recording level is zero! I cleaned the heads with alcohol, but the problem remains. I have a TELEX ACC-4000. Many...


Is this a big bass hum?
Are you in the USA?
These are all mostly pretty old units by now but pro equipment none the less.
It's got circuitry problems but may be worth repair as I'm not sure anything like this is made anymore.

Can I use this machine (telex copyette 123)to cancel old cassettes by copying a blank cassette onto three cassettes??


You should be able to do that with it, but note that this is a mono copying machine rather than stereo, so it may not entirely write over the existing recording if it is in stereo and the heads are in a slightly different position, but that would be the same for a stereo recorder too.
I think it will work, but really for decent recordings, I wouldn't recommend 'recycling' tapes in this way, they deteriorate fairly quickly.

Telex copyette 1-2-3 you can hear both sides at the same time


Clean the heads, oil the spindles.
Basic problem is the tape alignment is off a little. Could be caused by too much tape tension causing it to wander.
Hope Ya Fix It. So ya can spread the word!
