Question about GPX BCD2805 Radio/Cassette/CD Boombox

1 Answer

Recording on tape deck

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.

No, I do not want a plan, thank you.

Has the unit got a built in mic? Some have ,some havn`t. Some times you have to set the volume for recording.If it`s not set high enough you`ll get no playback!

How do I get it to record a voice?


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.

Recording


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.

How to record a cassette from cd on a sony xplod boombox cfd-g505


Insert a tape.

Select the program source you want to listen/record (CD).

Insert a cd, press stop.

Press record on the tape player.

Press play on the CD player.

The volume control or any audio emphasis buttons will not affect the record level.

We have two of these with the same problem. The belt that drives the pick up reels is broken. We are trying to find a place to purchase new ones.

JVC RC-QN2 - How to use the microphone on this unit?


That model seems to pre-date JVC's online manuals.
Let's try a little logic here though:
- Can it record on FM?    No - Can it record on CD?   No - Can it record on tape?   Probably. 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.'
