Question about Panasonic RR-830 Desktop Cassette Transcriber / Recorder

1 Answer

High pitch sqealing noise

I have had a Panasonic RR-930 transcribing machine for about one month which is emitting an intermittent high pitch sqealing noise. It's very loud and seems to come at random. It seems to be coming from the speaker itself. I've noticed online other people having the same problem. Do you have any ideas?

Thanks!

This is caused be a bad record switch. As a temporary solution, incert a blank tape, push the record switch, then stop. Repeat about 10 times. This may clean the contacts of the record/Play switch but it will probably need to be replaced.

After erasing a tape I have a high pitched noise when I step on the foot pedal


If it works fine otherwise, I wouldn't spend much time worrying about it.

You might want to clean the heads and the capstan.

My Panasonic RR-930 transcriber speeds up and slows down as I play back tapes. The problem seems to be with the machine itself and not the foot pedal or the tapes. Where do I start?


Start by cleaning the capstan roller. The rubber roller and small steel rod just above it, control the tape speed. Just a little lint, build up or animal hair wrapped around this can cause the speed to vary. Clean with alcohol and a Q-tip.

The machine is damaging the pressure pad and or eating cassette tapes.


These units are just like cassette players and have rubber parts inside. This unit should be overhauled. A good cleaning along with replacement rubber parts should resolve the problem. Figure on $10-$20 for parts.

Spindles for the cassette do not turn


There is a rubber drive belt inside that needs to be replaced. It is Panasonic part number RDV101YA and this website says they have it:

I've never had to work on one of these machines so I can't tell you exactly what you might need to remove to get at the old belt and pulleys it rides on, but usually it isn't too bad of a job. Anyone with some patience and who is comfortable with small tools should be able to change it. Just keep track of what screws came out of where, what other pieces had to be moved, etc. so you can put it all back together. (Camera phones are great...you can take pictures at each step so you can look back.)

High frequency squeeling


Call tech support! That's why these people get paid. Sites like this wouldn't need to exist if they did their jobs correctly!
