Question about Audio Players & Recorders
My Denon DRW-585 dual-well stereo cassette deck has begun to make a loud clicking sound in the audio signal at 7 to 9 second intervals when cassettes are played in the left ("A") well. The same cassettes play normally in the right ("B") well. The deck is about 7 years old, but has low operating time, probably less than 100 hours. The VU meter registers when the clicks occur, and shows that that the clicks are of roughly equal strength in both the left and right channel. It sounds almost like it could be very slow "motorboating", perhaps due to an electrolytic capacitor breaking down, or it could be a semiconductor avalanching. It's puzzling, though, because the clicks occur at slightly irregular intervals.
There is an outside chance your tape cassett has a static charge. Tape in plastic case of cassette can build up significant electrical static which can partially discharge as tape is run. It can sound like random thumps, ticks, pops ect. Wrap cassette in a damp (not dripping wet) cloth, for several hours, then try again. This can also happen to the reels and drive rollers of the deck
