    knightstar7,

    Thanks for answering. The only info I have on the unit is on each piece of the unit is : Stereo Receiver cassette RX - 28

    Turntable p-28

    CD Player DP-28

    Stereo Graphic Equalizer GE-28

    Tape Deck Dolby 8NR

    There is no model no, & the reason I need help is the manual has "done a runner"! This did happen once before & I can't remember what I did, but it rectified it.

There are sensor leaf switches that may not be contacting properly or the drive belt may be too slack to position meachanism properly. Have it checked by pro/tech

On a kenwood KR597 reciever, where do i hook up my KE597 graphics equalizer. Also must i remove my DP-R797 cd player to hook up my Maeantz PMD520 Cassette deck? Finally divorced


If you only have one set of tape in/out connectors, then hooking up two tape decks and an equalizer is going to be difficult. You could hook the "tape out" to one tape deck, that tape's output to the second tape, and the second tape's out to the equalizer, connecting the output of the eq back to your receiver....

Kenwood KX-79 CW dual cassette hook up?


Just connect the deck via tape 1 the out of the deck going to the in of the amp. While the out of the amp goes to the in of the deck.


The tape deck itself will automatically choose the player that plays the cassette. One will play the other will be on pause (if you press both play buttons) till the tape stops then the other will play. For recording from tape to tape one deck will be the copy and the other the copier. There should be a dubbing button which you press to record tape to tape. Some models have a high speed dub also. For recording from the amp unless both decks have record buttons you will only be able to record with one deck. Make certain the dub button is not set.

It sounds like a receiver with a DC leak in the coupling stage or a shorted driver. This should be seen by a Technician as the public is not typically set up to deal with this kind of problem.

I have a kx-w4050 dual kenwood tape deck niether side will play hear click and counter moves one then another click. Is there a way to fix this?


Yes, the belts need to be check and idlers or whatever drive mechanism that is used in that system. Dual deck units are among the most unreliable units there are and a reason I tell people for the last 30 years not to buy those things. Almost most of the time they are not worth fixing due to their poor performance at the end. These are facts not just opinion.

Technics tape deck rs-eh600 wont play it just clicks


Another dual deck it seems- the unit will need service by a Technician, there is no magic that will make it work. It may be as little as a large belt. I would have to see the unit to tell you the exact cause.

What is the bias control's function?


The Bias control is used during recording. If you turn down the bias, you will get more highs, but the distortion will increase, and then start to increase dramatically if you back off the bias more.

As far as playing tapes from different decks goes.......

1..Does the tape that you recorded on your deck sound OK on your deck ?
2..Does the tape that you recorded on your deck sound OK on other decks ?

If 1 and 2 are true, then your deck is OK.

If the tapes recorded on a specific deck sound bar on yours, but 1 and 2 are true, then the other deck is faulty.

When a deck leaves the factory, the head is aligned to a " standard " tape. By standard tape I mean a very special tape recorded in such a way, that a tech can tell if the head is out of align and "tweek " the physical alignment of the tape head..

All decks are aligned just a little differently, but fairly close to each other.

first do the mechanicals....is the head of your deck spotlessly clean ?. Use 99% pure isopropanol alcohol and a cotton swab. Never use anything metal to clean the tape head. If you scratch the head, its toast.

If your deck is clean, plays its own recordings well, and those recordings play well on other decks, then your deck is not the problem.

Hope this helps,
Rob

Tape slowing down, stops, rest a while and plays a few seconds and then slows down and stops, I feel it is the belts?


Belts, and the pinch roller are common wear parts that should be changed. This could most likely be your problem with this device.

I have a TEAC W-450R Stereo Double Reverse Cassette Deck. For some reason, the REC/PLAY II side will not operate. It has not for some time. In fact, that is why I believe I mothballed it some years ago....


I have not seen those to a large extent due to their value not being worth a repair. I did work on them at Teac though. The capstan motor of the right side deck sound like it is burned out. I have some motors here so it is just a matter of if you want me to work on it or not. I get a lot of units in all the time- I am Skywave Tape Deck Repair in Chicago area.
