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.

Insert a tape.

Select the program source you want to listen/record (CD).

Insert a cd, press stop.

Press record on the tape player.

Press play on the CD player.

The volume control or any audio emphasis buttons will not affect the record level.

Cassette player is eating tapes


Hey there.
Cassette head cleaners generally only improve the sound quality on playback. This problem sounds more like something mechanical; I would open the player and check out the capstan and rollers. If they are dirty, clean them with a mild soap and water solution, (carefull to not get it too wet). Also, as for the tape deck in your vehicle, OEM systems are notorious for eating and destroying cassette tapes.
Let me know how this goes over,
HortonA!

When I press play, my tape player eats the tape.


that means that the uptake wheel is not turning. typically this is caused by a rubber band that is insde the transport mechanism that connects the motor to the wheel.

if you are comfortable taking the device apart, you will need to find the right band and just pop it on.

My Sony dual tape deck does not record in stereo anymore.


Oxide deposits on heads can restrict audio transfer to tape. You may need to do a deep cleaning of record head. Depending on how much deposits are on heads may need no more than alchohol and Q-tip. Be sure to clean erase head and drive roller. Afterwards, try recording, then use headphones in jack on recorder to check for recording on both channels. If this works, problem is not in rest of equipment set up. If you still need help, email me

Tascam 488 mk II recording problems


Have you taken a look at the edge of the tape? tracks 1 and 2 on a cassette are usually next to the edge and you may have a bad batch of tapes that have the edge damaged. Another possible but not a likley problem might be the tape is out of spec. for the width, and your heads MAY have a little wear from use, and are trying to act like tape guides. If the tape is slightly wider than the grove worn in the head, the tape would be lifted at the edge and not make contact to the head. It is not electronic as you have diagnosed this with other tapes. Give it a try and see!
