I have a Dictaphone Desktop Voice Processor Model 2720 and it won't play the tapes. It will rewind and fastforward but not play. I don't have the manual. Does anyone know if I'm not doing something right?

It's possible the play capstan belt is broken - or the main capstan motor is stalled.

The dictaphone wont rewind or fast forward and makes a bleeping noise


Hi,
Does the tape move when you press rewind or fast forward.
If the tape moves for a few seconds then bleeps it sound like a sensor problem.
If it only bleeps when the rewind and fast forward are pressed and the play is ok it sounds like the actuator motor is faulty,this motor enables the rewind and fast forward.
Hope this helps.

Dictaphone ExpressWriter system - tape will not rewind, play, ff


Is this a standard-size cassette unit? Is the model number a 2740 or 2750? When you first plug the power in, does the machine make two clicking noises? Does the display show 'CAS' or 'No Cassette'?

What is the cue/f play/erase button on the top


When in RECORD, pressing the 'Cue' button will put a tone on the tape. This is used on the transcriber's machine to identify different jobs and such.

When in PLAY, pressing the 'F Play' button will change the playback speed to 1.5.

If you hold the 'ERASE' button and hold the portable in REWIND, it'll erase the tape while it's rewinding.

Hope this helps...

Dictaphone 3750 transcriber


If it does this with all tapes, there is a small "no-cassette" switch at the back of the cassette compartment. The switch may be broken, dirty or out of adjustment. When you open the cassette door you should be able to see the switch tab. Push it in just a bit to see if the No Tape indicator goes out.

Dictaphone 3720 Transcriber will not play or record


All three problems could be related to drive belt issues. Either the belts have become stretched-out or have broken.
