    This make no difference , i also checked the kable's and replaced them , I also used other tapes.
    When you record both peak-meters give the same peak-levels.
    when you play the tape the peak meter of the right channel is lower then the left channel.
    what can this be?

Clean the Tape and erase head (these are the small block stainless and white plastic which the tape passes) with cotton ball slighty damped with rubbing alcohol

    Then you need to replace the tape head, it is already worn-out

  • Doldog Jun 09, 2010

    try calibrating the head, there is a small hole on the front face of your tape deck just below the tape cover, you need a small phillips screw, play a good tape on while playing turning the screw driver slowly clockwise until it is fully thigten then slowly turn it counter clockwise you'll hear the difference in the sound while doing this, stop turning the screw when you hear the best sound you can attain

Marantz pmd520


The PMD520 doesn't have balanced XLR inputs; only unbalanced phono/RCAs. If your source has phono outs too, then use those, because the benefit of balances inputs is lost when converted to phono.

If you still want to go ahead, then buy some balanced to unbalanced converters.
Studiospares RED502 Bi Directional Balanced Unbalanced Converter


If you try to do this on the cheap by wiring an XLR to phono, be aware that the studio level output of balanced level connections is about 2V rms. The live input level for unbalanced is around 1V rms. You'll either need to pad the input to reduce the level or run the cassette REC level controls nearer to the bottom of their adjustment range where they're a bit noisier and not so linear.

Pioneer CT-W208r won't eject tape.


These dual cassette decks were throw away units in most cases. The belt inside and the grease in the cam mechanism is in bad shape and the deck can not cycle through the steps it need to so as to reach stop. Only stop mode will allow the door block to release. The tape can safely be extracted by a Technician. The deck need work. Dual cassette decks are not always worn the repair cost.

Pioneer audio video multichannel rec vsx-d810s the remote for this unit xxd3028 will not balance the speakers anymore. The batteris are new. What next


Have you tried balancing it from the Receiver?
What happens sometimes is that when the battery dies and you still use it,the buttons on the remote don't work.
The possible reason can be Dust,age of the unit can be another factor.

Pull remote's faceplate off and check the contacts, make sure there is not something obstructing or not allowing your faceplate to make proper contact.. You might need to pullout the screws using a screw driver.

The last option would be to buy a new remote.

Good Luck.

My Magnavox MWR20V6


If unit is still under warranty return it. If unit is still sold at the orginal place of purchase buy another and return the first one stating it wont work and get a refund
1) power source is good? (receptical on the wall or power unit. Locate DVD rec. to another receptical and check Rec. again)
2) power cord going to unit is good, no cuts or melted spots
3) power setting on unit is correct (small red slide type buttong for different country voltage settings)
4) internal fuse, change it even if it doesn't look bad.
5) Weigh the cost of a new one to the repair cost of the old one. If you buy a new one get a good brand RCA is still one of best and longest lasting.

Black pic on tv fm dvd rec


Several possibilities. If there is a HD box going into this unit, it will give you this message. If there is a modulator or converter box between the cable/sat box and this unit, it will give you that msg. If you have an input plugged into an input, it will give you this msg. Finally, if you have anything other than a camcorder plugged into the FRONT of this unit, it will give you this message. Recheck your connections.

Problem with deck B on Pioneer CT-W205R


Better tape decks, like Pioneer, may use a different mechanism for record/play than FF & REW. So it sounds like a belt or mechanical link for the REC/PLAY has failed.
