My boombox does not seem to record using a tape. I have a brand new tape, and have the function set on "tape" as opposed to CD or radio, and the volume is up. I push 'record' button but when I rewind and try to listen there's nothing on the tape. I understand there is a built-in microphone, correct? Am I doing something wrong? Thanks.
I have not "solved" the problem. I'm simply assuming that the built-in microphone does not work. I CAN record radio on to a tape and a CD onto a tape. I just cannot record my voice onto a tape. I'm just chalking it up to a faulty microphone.

Many portable 'boombox' recorders do not include a microphone for recording ambient sound, but can only record from one internal source to another, like radio or CD to Cassettte. Some do include an input jack for microphones or other audio sources, but you'll need to check your device's specs/ports to be sure.
You can only record from the radio or CD player. There's no microphone input on this model. Just insert a tape and press the REC button. If you're recording from the CD, it begins playing when you press the REC button. If you need a copy of the manual you can download it here.
you mean to record?first,you must connect the other unit (if you are using two cassette)by using rca plug or earphone plugs.insert the plugs to audio in or aux(this is the unit that will record).if the other unit doesn't have the output audio,use the earphone out instead.time to record.the recorder must be set to tape/aux,(if you are using a unit with radio setting).then,push the play and record button at the same time.don't forget to put in the blank tape ok.then push play to the unit that you want to be recorded.the square symbol is for stop.the arrows pointing left ,rewind.pointing right, forward.the big arrow pointing right is the play and the button next to it is the record button.
That model seems to pre-date JVC's online manuals.
Let's try a little logic here though:
- Can it record on FM?
- Can it record on CD?
- Can it record on tape?
And if it is set up as most such devices, it will have to be switched to 'Tape,' then 'Record' and if you don't wish to actually put anything on tape, you may still have to have one in the drive and just leave it on 'Pause.'
