Does your transcriber have a digital display? If so, turn off indexing by holding down both stop and reset together for about 5 seconds. Also turn off the Auto Stop if on.

Hello sorry the M-2000 don't have the ERASE feature but your only option is to get a tape eraser you can get one at http://www.tvps.com/Products/ECS-ME20-Mini--Micro-Cassette-Eraser---New__VE-ME-20.aspx just think positive your unit will last longer the eraser prolong the life of units just pass the microcassete once on the eraser and is done full erase :)

SOURCE: have a panasonic RR930 microcassette

If neither rewind nor backspace work, the common problem would be that the solenoid grease has dried up and the solenoid is not retracting all the way. However, the track that the mechanism moves in also wears out, as well as the plastic rocker that depresses the rewind button where it engages the metal slide.

If backspace works but not rewind from the pedal then the problem is the pedal.

SOURCE: My Panasonic RR-930 transcriber speeds

Start by cleaning the capstan roller. The rubber roller and small steel rod just above it, control the tape speed. Just a little lint, build up or animal hair wrapped around this can cause the speed to vary. Clean with alcohol and a Q-tip.

Does anyone know how to adjust the reverse speed on the microcassette transcription machine?


You should check to see if you have the machine set on Dictator Press. If you hold the pedal for more than a second it resets. This might be your issue.

I have a new Sony Microcassette Transcriber M-2000 and cannot figure out how to ERASE a tape that I've transcribed. The Operating Instructions don't mention that feature, either. Can you help me?

My transcriber keeps going after I take my foot off the foot pedal. Also, the reverse time is not working correctly. I got a new foot pedal, but the problems still exist.

Dictaphone transcriber 3750 won't play, reverse, or go forward. What can I do?


Does anything show up on the display? Like 'No Cassette' or 'End Tape'?

Are you using a foot control? Does the tape move when pressing the buttons on the machine itself? Is the foot control plugged into the side of the machine (and NOT the back)?

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.
