First try cleaning the heads with some electronics grade alcohol and a static free cleaning swab...although it sounds like the head may need alignment...if those two things do not work out for you, the capstan motor might be the culprit.

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.

I need to know how I can hook up my Teac EQA 5 equalizer to my Sansui AUD 9 power amp.. I lost the manual to the E/Q


It is very easy, you don't need a manual for this. The EQ line in and Line out get hooked into the record out and Tape in of one of the tape loops on the Sansui amp. Record outs go to EQ in and the EQ out goes to tape play.

Playback options


If I were you I would get that side repaired for the following reasons 1) the wear on the record head is the same on the B whether you record or play 2) the gap is a compromise if it is a record/play head and for play back only the quality is better albeit only seen on instruments . 3) Cassette machines will be very dear and scarce as the factories appeared to have stopped making them. If you have the quantity as I have then if your record side's head is more of value as you cannot record on the head 4) Is your recording side a "3 head " unit giving you "off the tape" recording capability.5) You loose the ability to do trick recording by adding voice with music
This is the reasons for the time being If it is the unit in your pic then it was a very expensive unit

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

Was given an Ampex AG-440 tape deck that stopped recording after sitting for about six months. Any ideas? (I lost the Manual) Everything else works fine. When put into record mode all lights are lit...


try cleaning the record head, Most people only clean the play back heads on tape players, the record head is just off to one side of the main playback heads , you can use a Qtip and rubbing alcohol to do the cleaning

I just bought a used PDM510. Most everything seems to be in working order, however, I can't seem to enter record mode or hear audio through line inputs. I'm not sure if the machine is broken or if I'm...


to hear the audio fold back in prerecording mode you will need a tape that still has a security tab in it if not put some tape over the whole or even block the hole up

supply the tape unit with a good signal and then hold down the pause button and press the record and play button at the same time. you will then be able to monitor the sound you are about to record. use headphones as this to stops background noise in your ears and allows you to focus on the sound, "its another world inside your cans" adjust the input level until just peaking into the red. when you are ready to record leave the record button alone and the stop button and the play button just release the pause button and away you go. to stop press stop to stop recording say to cut out an advert or something just press pause.

Play back on Sanyo mr-929 reel-to-reel tape recorder is backwards


I also have an MR-929. The information that you need is in the 'Stereophonic 4 track stereo''. As stereo is only two tracks, there is another 2 tracks in addition to the one you are listening to. Wind the entire reel to the empty spool, and then play that. As you have to physically turn the reel over to do so, you should then hear the other tracks (or track, if recorded in mono).
I use my 929 to play my parents recording of my family from the late 60s, which were recorded on a valve (tube) Ferguson machine, which had a green "magic eye" level indicator, which as a child I found fascinating!

Audio tape cassettes,old pre-recorded and home recorded play too slowly and drag. All brands. Tape deck plays new tapes fine.


A good cleaning to the rollers and tape head with a qtip and a small amount of rubbing alcohol should do the trick
