Technics RS-TR272 Dual - Won't Reverse

I have a Technics Rs-Tr272 dual cassette deck that won't reverse or rewind in either of the tape bays. Have had the deck for a number of years, but never used it very much. Before I become committed to keeping it - which I really would like to do - what could be the cause and would it be worth it to have it checked out?

Thanks

Cassette decks that have been sitting for long periods have problems with drive belts and idlers becoming slack or decomposing of the rubber compound. If you wish to keep the unit, please have it cleaned and have belts/idlers replaced with new ones by a professional service. Also have controls and switches cleaned of built up tarnish and mildew to prevent noisey or drop-out audio

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

for a start your title says "Problem with the Technics RS-TR272 Single Cassette Deck"
So is it a single or double?
i'm assuming it's a double,right only one of the decks records so put the blank tape into it make sure the tabs on the top of the tape haven't been broke or you'll need to cover the holes with the labels you get with the tape.
put the tape with the music on it, in the other deck rewind them both then press "sync rec" & they should both set off.

RS-TR272 dual deck and capstans seem to be locked in both decks. When you try to play a tape the take up reel does not turn. Can not get fast forward or fast reverse to work. How to fix and is it worth...


DO NOT spray anything into this unit. The problem is a slipping belt and is a simple fix for any audio shop. While possible, it is rare for a motor to fail. There is a small belt that drives the take up side along with a felt clutch assembly that can slip. If this is the case, the unit will realize that the take-up reel is not turning and shutdown the unit. Please have this serviced. The belts will run around $6-$10 total.

Power to technics rs-t24 dual deck


I own a RS-T24 as well and stumbled upon this thread while searching for this exact same solution. The RS-T24 generates no power on its own. It gets its power from, in my case, the SU-V75 amplifier. I still have a working SU-V75 and got the following readings out of the plug-in for the RS-T24 on the amp:

Left = pin 1 - (white wire)
Middle = pin 2
Right = pin 3

1-2 = 11.5 vac
1-3 = 23.0 vac
2-3 = 11.5 vac

Remote control for Technics RS TR 272 Dual Cassette Deck


a system remote is the only option for you here. The deck does not have its own remote receiver. Sorry to break the bad news to you.

CHECK CONNECTIONS AT THE BASE OF THE READ HEADS AS THEY HAVE A TENDENCY TO CRACK OVER A PERIOD OF USE. CAREFULLY STRIP BACK AND RESOLDER, REMEMBER TO LEAVE SOME SLACK AS THE HEADS REVOLVE ON TAPE REVERSAL.

Technics RS-TR272 dual cassette deck


Ahh, Another Dual cassette deck. These are typically not worth a repair charge. I went looking for a service manual but Hi Fi Engine did not have one but they had a Owners Manual. Any unit that has a specification as to wow and flutter starting new at .18% was never made to be a long lasting deck of any quality. I don't like to be negative about people equipment but you might be better off getting a better deck from the start. If you think it is worth the repair, then send it to someone but I don't think you will want to sink $100 into a unit like this.
I am not saying it is unrepairable but that with what you come out in the end you could have made a better choice for a deck to buy.
It is probably a bad solder joint or bad capacitor on the circuit board.
I am in Chicago and would look at it for you if you want.
