I cannot fix this problem. it is your problem folks. the webpage on your site showing tape decks has the images (or descriptions) of dual and sgl tape decks reversed. if you just go to your own web page you will see what i mean.

Have a Sony tc-we475 that we use at church to record our sermons. It quit working, started "clicking", so I took it apart and the belt was off the pulley. Fixed that, but now when u put a tape in...

It can be fixed but probably not at a cost that is inside the worth of such a deck. You are better off getting an older designed unit made with good parts such as a Teac that has been restored by a professional and then be on your way. The cheap plastic decks are made for throw away systems and are not often repaired. I have been doing repairs for about 42 years so I know about these things. If you need a well functioning deck you might want to contact me directly at Skywave Tape Deck Repair in the Chicago area.

I have a Teac X1000 Reel to Reel tape recorder. The reels fast back and fast forward but when I press

This level of machine requires a service Technician with knowledge of the workings of this machine. The typical Technician will adjust it to work but often times it is a mess when they get done. There are two remaining Techs that know their stuff in the US. They are Russ Bachmann at New Jersey Factory Service. Then there is myself at Skywave Tape Deck Repair (Chicago area). Contact me if you need help in Chicago or Russ in the New Jersey or NY area. We both take shipped in units all the time. We both worked for Teac and have been doing the job since the 80's. if you need more info on either.

I have a Nakamichi Dragon Cassette Deck which recently during operation began emitting foul smelling smoke. I immediately turned it off. Could you tell me what has happened please. Thank you. Noela.

It's hard to know without putting on a bench and doing diagnostics or, maybe a tech with experience on these decks knows of common weaknesses.

You might seek help from folks at

Whatever happened it probably isn't good. Smoke is usually sign of a fairly significant electronic failure of some sort. The Dragon is arguably the holy grail of tape decks, so it would be worth fixing back to good health.

Is it electronic or mechanical? The left channel is the physical outer edge of the tape. It's more sensitive to damage and sloppy contact with the heads. If you can see a wave in light reflected off the tape it's probably shot.

When's the last time you cleaned the heads?

RS-dc10 DCC replacement head

You should contact Panasonic, or Matsuchita. They can most likely give you their authorised parts dealer. You may find the head to be a little expensive.

You will have to have an experienced tech install the head for you. He will have to do a tape path alignment with the frequency response calibration.
