SOURCE: Lanier Transcriber unit will not play

Most likley it is a bad motor or a broken belt. There is a seperate motor or FF and Rewind.. If the motor is bad it is likly that the motor control circuit board is bad also (motor shorts and takes out the board also). If there is no "click" when play is selected it could be the play solenoid is dirty and not engaging. I have repaired thousand of these units through the years and in spite of these issues they were a great sounding unit.

BTW this is true for the VW-210, VW-260, p-139 and simular units.

SOURCE: Need repair for several Lanier p160 hand held recorders

Medquist is running out of parts for many tape machines (Medquist bought Lanier). It is getting harder and harder to find parts. Medquist isn't having any more parts made for many models and has stopped selling the parts. Our company has been repairing dictation/transcription equipment since 1914 with Thomas Edison's original tin and wax cylinder recorders. Due to our business over the years we have a sizeable warehouse of parts. Although for some models, parts are getting scarce even for us. If you would like your tape units repaired, go to the website below:
http://www.vanausdall.com/support/
There is contact information there. Someone will assist you with instructions on sending in your units and answer your questions. Depot service rates are $75.00/hr charged in 15 min increments. Many problems with tape units can be repaired within 30 mins. It just depends on what is wrong. Of course you'll have to pay for parts as well. If we take the time to diagnose the issues with your unit and look up parts and you decide to not have it repaired, there is a $20 estimation fee. As long as parts are available, we will warranty repairs for 30 days. If a part becomes unavailable, of course we can't repair it again under warranty if we can no longer get the part.

How do I erase the tapes on a Lanier VW-210


Press the telephone button first with one finger and immediately after you press that button press the rewind button, The unit should go into rewind and erase should be flashing on the digital display. When the unit starts rewinding take your finger off of both buttons, if you keep them on ,then the unit will rewind and stop erasing .

I lost the remote control, how can rewind the hsv tape. Thanks.


There should be a rewind button on the front of the main unit (usually indicated by either REW or 2 arrows pointing to the left), this should be next to the fast forward (again indicated by either F-FWD or 2 arrows pointing to the right) as well as PLAY and STOP - for the VCR. The only thing you would need the remote for is to set the clock and/or perform setup for the DVD player as well as timer recording. Try a universal remote which will make fast forward, play, stop, record (to VHS) and rewind easier.

How do you erase dictation from a Lanier dictaphone?


While holding the 'Erase' button down, press the 'Rewind' or "Fast Forward' button. It will erase the tape while it rewinds or fast forwards.
