RCA Boombox Model #RCD158A Cassette Play Button

Hello. We have a portable RCA boombox with an AM/FM tuner, a CD player, and a cassette player (model # RCD158A). I just tried to play a cassette, and the "play" button will not stay down. I can listen to the cassette tape if I hold the button down at just the right place, but the tape stops playing if I let up even just a little. All of the other cassette buttons work. Any suggestions on how to fix? Thank you.

You will need to use the Forward and Reverse buttons on the CD player. Set the station by holding the button you want to set it to until it blinks and shows the station number.
To set more that 10 stations. Press the (>10) button and then enter 11 or 12 or so on and set the stations the same as above.

The laser is dead or damaged. Try swabbing the laser with rubbing alcohol on a Q-Tip, then IMMEDIATELY blowing dry with canned air. If this fails, the laser is dead. If it is a Sony KSS-2xx series laser (try to peek in the laser slot to see the decal on it) you can get replacements online. If not, it's junk.

SOURCE: RCA Boombox model # RCD158A - will not record

Hiya 2 possibles here:
1 - At the back of the cassette, there are 2 "tags", one on the left, one on the right. if those tags are broken out, it wont record. You put a piece of tape over the holes, that wll do

2 - If thats OK (dont know the beat box myself) but often you need to press play and record together

Hope one of those work!

Cassettes don't contain 'files' or data.

The analog audio can be recorded to a CD.

For this specific model, it's all in the manual...

I have a Sony CFD 5250 Radio Cassette-Corder. Can I play music from an I-Pod through it? I cannot find the manual. Can I access a manual online?


The answer is yes, but the ease of doing so will vary. If the unit has an auxiliary input all you will need is a 3.5 millimeter to stereo RCA plug adapter. If it does not have an aux in then it gets more complicated, but it can be done. Do a little digging on the internet for an old cassette adapter. These were used in years gone by to allow the playing of a portable CD player through a cassette deck. The adapter looks just like a cassette, but it has a wire coming off of it with a 3.5 millimeter plug on the end. It will allow you play the I-Pod through the cassette deck just like a portable CD player.
