The record mode does not function on the right side.It does play on both sides!

The right hand side ie.,the record mode does not function but it does play properly. Also when a already recorded tape is placed on the left side and a blank tape placed in the right side as soon as
record button is pressed the source tape drive shuts off!

Please help!

Place the speed on X1 mode to make sure it is off the B mode and it should record.

I assume you are refering to a cassette deck. Check to see if record protection tab on cassette is intact, if not you won't be able to record on that side of tape. You can use a strip of clean tape over the slot if tab is missing

Hi there guys, I have a Problem with my Sony Tc 766-2, The Machine play & record & rewind find the problem is when I record for example in side one and later i change the reels to play side two! It...


The Sony TC-766-2 is a 2 track (half track) format deck. In those types of decks used for mastering, there is NO side two. The deck uses the entire width of the tape in the one direction. What you are expecting is the side two of a 1/4 track deck and this is NOT what a 766-2 is for. That is why the -2 is on the model name. NO two track decks of any brand have a side two.

Why will the Pioneer RT 707 not work in playback mode?


No it is the same motor for both functions. Just check does the record/play switch operate or move when you operate the record function? I have a hunch that is the problem it may also be that the switch contacts are dirty or worn.Try to play a recording you made on another machine if it does sound and play on the other machine then the problem can only be this switch. Some more upstairs decks do have separate amplifiers for play and record .Nakamichi. Studer Revox Tandberg Uher and the such comes to mind These are those machines offering "Off tape" recording monitor. Then it will sport three heads and not only two I hope this gives clues where to start looking for problems

How I solve the channel overlapping?


This is down to the head alignment. Once that is corrected the sound will recorded normally and playback normally too. However any tapes recorded during the fault will not play right.

The head alignment can be corrected, using two adjusting screws located either side of the head. To get at them the door cover has to be removed. To align you play a pre-recorded good quality tape. You adjust the screws till the sound is bright and clear and only the sound recorded on that side of the tape can be heard. Best done with headphones. If you can use a commercial music tape. If you use the decks own recordings it might not be right.
If there is any damage to the head mounting you will not be able to get the alignment right.
PS use the right screwdriver for the head screws. These are very small and easily wear away. If you wear the screw head away you might have a job getting a new small screw that will fit.

Cassette drive belt unit


This is what i rendered to another person asking about replacing belts in a tape transport


Can you not retrieve you tape ?

this is caused by a safety feature, your tape is not damaged more than it might already be, if your take up spool the right side dos not rotate when it is suppose to it registers a fault. in all cases it simply dos not play the tape.
some other units require the loading of the tape path components IE pinch roller/ and tape pickup heads if this function is interrupted and unable to complete its cycle you will not get your tape back until you disassemble and manually advance the function to it`s conclusion ARE YOU PREPARED TO UNDERTAKE THIS PROCEDURE ?.

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

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 have a Kenwood KX W 4070 double cassette deck. The left hand cassette player doesn't work (I can only play cassettes on the right side recording one.)


The flywheel belt would have broken or gone slack and fallen off the motor pulley. You can confirm this by opening the top and looking inside. If you can shake the machine holding it upside down the belt might even fall off.Replacing the belt is a tricky job. Its like putting back a bicycle chain except there is a metal plate behind the flywheel and your hand won't go there.

I can record on one side only, if I try to record on


It's a 4-channel recorder. That's four recorded channels in the same direction. You COULD use it like a standard 2-channel stereo recorder with bi-directional playback if you recorded only the front tracks. THAT would produce a 1/4-track stereo tape with two sides (directions).

In the photo, the front and back are clearly marked.

Leave the Back Record switches in PB mode.
