How do I 'erase' a tape for a Dictaphone 1710?


I used to use "bulk tape erasers" to do the job in less than a minute for standard cassette of any length, 8 track and even reel-to-reel magnetic recording tape. Otherwise, you'll need to record "silence" over the entire length of tape. That will be time consuming - but will make the next recording clearer as opposed to just recording the dictation over the old recording.

Here's a link to some I found on Google. I'm sure there are plenty of other places to check (like ebay or craigslist) too. Don't forget to demagnetize the recoding head too! There are tools for this that will dramatically improve the sound captured on the tape. Here are a few I found. Finally, physically scrubbing the head with a plain old Q-Tip dipped in denatured alcohol to loosen dirt and grime that collects on the head and anything that comes in contact with the tape itself. You can get that, here.

Doing this along with replacing old tapes (they get stretched out, scratched, and dirty) regularly will keep the audio sounding crisp and clear.

Good luck!

Tape isn't retracted into cassette upon eject on Sony EV-C100


l would sacrifice a old or bad tape here, remove all the tape inside a cassette and tape off the small sensor holes on each side.

That way no tape to damage and you can insert it to see what is happening.


What likely is the issue is when stop it, it or if the tape does not fully load against the drum with heads, when the arms retract that pull the tape out of the cassette the mechanism is not switching to rewind it back into the cassette.

Usually this means a belt is slipping or the idler unit is not working---belts can break or stretch or even come off---belts will get slopply or bad from NO use and it is common.

Tape is torn and I need to get it out of the cassette housing, splice the tape, then place in a new housing. Where can I get a repair kit??


Cat. No. 44-626 used to be available at Radio Shack but no more.

This might work..

http://www.gearslutz.com/board/geekslutz-forum/31114-cassette-repair-kit.html

"Splice the broken end to the take up reel of a newly bought cassette that you can open.
open the new cassette,
trash the interior
If you can't move the old reels to the new mechanism:
tape one side of the broken cassette's tape to the new take up reel
close the new cassette (do not open or break the old cassette if it's not already done)
insert a pencil into the gizmo on the take up reel on the new cassette,
reel up the old cassettes tape into the new cassette
re open the new cassette
splice the other end to the new cassette's gizmo
close the new cassette
record the contents to digital"

Mode for playback of older 8mm tapes using Sony DCR-TRV730 ?


In 1990s Sony camcorder records movie in analog format so playing in digital camcorder like DCR-TRV730 doesn't mean it will be converted in digital format and you can not import file in PC for editing purpose. You will get analog signal while playing back old cassettes.

Regarding SP, LP speed, its decided at time of recording. Camera sens SP or LP automatically in playback and set itself accordingly.

If you want to convert old cassettes into digital format, connect our camcorder to DVD recorder and burn DVD which is digital format, copy DVD files in to PC and do desired editing.

VCR running badly


The 180 tape is thinner than regular 120's, and they tend to stretch. Your VCR "knows" the speen and that there is information on the tape by looking at and counting the pulses on the "control track" which is like the sprocket holes on a film. The control track is a series of pulses (regularly spaced pips or electronic clicks) on the edge of the video tape. (They are magnetic and can't be seen with the naked eye.) There is a counting mechanism which - based on HOW MANY pips there are - helps the machine to determine whether it an SP, EP or LP recording, and whether there's a recording at all.

If the tape stretches, the number of pulses becomes very irregular and the machine goes haywire. (There are normally about 60 pulses in one second of tape - 59.94 to be exact!)

If the count - because of stretching - is too far away from the norm the machine the machine will "hunt" (and never find out the real speed) - trying to figure out what speed the tape ACTUALLY is running at. If there's no control track at all the machine will just stop.

Your problem is any or all of the above. Throw the tape away.

Sorry!

Problems with playback of HI8 tapes...


What's happening is that the tape in the cassette is being chewed on one side by the camera's tape transporting mechanism during playback, hence the distorted image and sound. The mechanism might be damaged (misalignment) or just dirty. Try not to play other tapes on this unit because they will become permanently damaged. The best way is to find another camcorder (if cleaning does not help). Note that some old cassettes of long recording time will exhibit this behavior more often because of thinner tape used.

My ZR30mc video recorder will not eject cassette


Take the side panel off to see whether the tape is damaged and will not retreat into the cassette ( this will prevent ejection ). Remove old damaged cassette and insert new one. If the unit chews the new cassette camera should go in for VTR service.

Can hear crackling or spitting sound when selecting HI-FI


The "crackling" sound you describe sounds suspiciously like mis-tracking. That is: The result of the Hi-Fi heads (which are on the rotating video headwheel or drum) not exactly following the recorded tracks. Have you tried adjusting the tracking slightly? The reason this happens is that the Hi-Fi tracks are MUCH narrower than the thinnest video track (used for 6 hours per T120 tape). Tape stretches and shrinks as it ages. Video recorders wear with normal use in such a way that the tracking changes. The problem is often worse with tapes recorded at the SLP (6 hour) speed because the servo cannot correct errors as fast when the tape is moving slowly (on some machines only). Tape quality also counts...and manufacturers change their formulations without public notice. All these things can lead to "archived" tapes being lost. Solution: Use the best quality tape you can afford, not the cheapest; record at the highest possible speed. Store the tape carefully. Never use a cheap "rewinder" because they can over-tighten the tape causing wrinkles, stretches, and other kinds of damage.
