DEAD LEFT CHANNEL!!

I have a technics RS-AZ7 Tape deck, the Left channel no longer plays? It is/was an expensive tape deck and I don't want to let it go.
Is it fixable?

The most common problem is a dirty record<>play switch inside the unit. Try this: Using a blank tape, press and release record/play buttons several times. This can clean the switch a bit. Then play a tape. If it fixes the problem, then you need to take the unit apart and use a plastic safe spray cleaner on the switch (Check at Radio Shack, their tuner cleaner Catalog #: 64-4315 will work fine). Spray it into the switch and then work the switch with the buttons several times.

Hope that helps...

    Is the left meter also dead? If so, I can't think of anything easy for you to look at.

Yes and no. If you swap the channel leads over the fault should go to the other channel. Still the same, then not the Cassette deck.
There are several causes to one channel going. First the lead to the tape head is off or the head has gone!! Secondly a switch either on the front of the machine or the inside (when it switches to record) is faulty. Lastly an electronic fault. The good thing is that you have one good channel to play with. So as they are both the same any readings should be the same for both channels. The electronics will also buzz when touched with an insulated tool. So if it buzzers in one place in one channel it should do the same in the other in the same place.

I WANT TO PURCHASE ONLY CASSETTE TAPE DECK HEAD ; AMORPHOUS Z 3 HEAD FOR TECHNICS CASSETTE TAPE DECK


All you can do is look on E bay for someone who is selling such an item. The fact that they are no longer produced is going to make the price high. This is the reality of cassette tape decks these days.

I can't find the manual to my Technics RS-TR272 Stereo Cassette Deck. How do you tape something on one cassette to another?


Place the tape you want to record into the left deck, Then the blank tape into the right deck. Press play on the left deck and record on the right deck.

It may be opposite depending on which side your recording deck is on.

Which ever deck has record, place blank cassette into that one and the cassette you want to copy into the other deck.

Hope this helps and please rate thanks

Technics Tape Deck RS-M227X. VU needles jump to the maximum right


More than likely the pre-amp IC has failed! Trace the wires from the VU meters back they should locate the source of the problem. Remember it will be something common to both channels!

Connection between CD, EQ, SP technics


Each unit (the EQ and the Processor) should have left/right in/out rca jacks as well as L/R tape in/outs. The EQ or processor use the receiver's tape loop and then provide a tape loop to replace the one they've used on the receiver.

You plug the first unit (let's say the Sound Processor into your receiver/amp as if it were a tape deck (Processor's outs connect to reciever's tape ins (play) while the Processor's ins connect to the receiver's tape outs (record).

Then you chain the EQ off the Processor in the same way (EQ outs connect to Processor's tape ins (play) and EQ ins connect to the Processor's tape outs (record).

Last you connect the tape deck to the EQ as follows. Tape deck outs connect to EQ's tape ins (play) and the tape deck ins connect to the EQ's outs (record).

This will put both the Sound Processor and the EQ in the receiver's tape loop. In order to have all the receiver's source signals routed through them you may have to engage a Tape Monitor switch or button somwhere on your amp which will route the tape loop to your speakers.
