Memo-scriber TRC9010 keeps beeping even when there is a tape in the machine and it's not at the end of the tape. I did clean it with alcohol instead of isopropyl alcohol. Could that have affected it?

    I was trying to play a taper and tried different tapes with no difference. I haven't used the machine in a while, but it's making a humming sound I don't remember it doing before. It makes the sound when the machine is on and the cassette compartment is closed, whether there is a tape in it or not. Thanks!

    I still have the problem of the beep, so I can't play a tape. It seems that somehow the machine does not recognize that there is a tape in the machine. I can reverse and fast forward the tape, but not play it.

    Ginko,
    If the head is damaged, would I be able to replace it myself.

Yes tape head can be replaced,a humming sound is also caused by loose connection of parts in power supply section and beeping sound is also caused crack or cold solder solder joint of parts in circuit board...Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the unit turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.

Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder".

hope this may help;

Good luck:

Regards,
VOTIT

Check Take up reel. May be bad. Check or replace reel sensor. check clutch. If this unit is CCD-TR, you must replace reels table (take up and supply) is very common to crack bab. And clean contacts on flex board connection on bottom of transport, intermittent contact may cause error on sensors job

If you cleaned the head with alcohol right on top of it you may have damaged the head, that can be the reason why it does not recognise tapes.
If you did the cleaning recently wait some time for drying eventual liquid residue.

    Usually there is some soldering to do , but it is not a too difficult job if you have worked on pcb before.
    You can ask parts to Sanyo, check at the end of the owner manual there is also a number to call , or find contact on the website.
    Call them and also ask them a quote to check and repair it, from description the machine can have additional problem, better to have it checkd from a technician.

It plays the cassette tapes but you hear the machine running and can barley hear the recording on the tape. How do you fix that?


You need to clean the heads with alcohol now and then- chances are they are covered over with oxide that comes off the tape and that is keeping the tape from the heads.

I put a tape in and it keeps flipping sides without playing and pops out and says Error. It even does it with a CD-Cassette Adapter. Before the Cln came up and I pressed on the eject button and that...


Cassette decks have sensors on the reels which tells the deck when the tape is at the end. When the reel stops the deck switches the direction of the tape and sometimes the position of the head(depending on the deck design). Most common problem is the tape is hard to turn, or the deck won't turn it ( deck thinks it's at the end, click, still won't turn, click, won't turn, click) you should fast forward and/or rewind your tapes from start to finish once in a while to keep them lined up(narrow spool/less friction), you shouldn't have to but it works. BUT,...your problem sounds like a slipping or broken belt/or dirt causing the problem. Take the deck out to have a look and clean the capstans(rubber rollers)belts,heads with alcohol and a Q-tip while your at it. Dirt's usually the main culprit and if you do have some other problem, cleaning it is always a win/win (It will also sound better clean)

I have a Cable & Wireless phone CW2600 that keeps beeping and says i have a memo? can you tell me how to delete this?


This happened to me (well, actually to my wife...). This is what I did to fix it, after lots of fruitless reading of the manual:
Press the tape button (bttom right) so the display shows ANS RECORD.
Press MEMO REC. The display shows MEM FULL.
Press MEMO PLAY, then (quite quickly) DELETE.
Problem solved!

clean all brown oxide off capstan roller with 70% alcohol and Q-tip. Its the skinny silver axle that the rubber roller comes into contact with when the tape loads. This is what pulls the tape through the transport. also clean heads with head cleaner tape. If your head is dirty, the tape will wrap itself around the drum and cause a transport error.

Eating tapes


Chances are that that "milky substance" has gummed up the works. Sounds like the pinch roller (the rubber wheel that draws the tape through the machine) may have gunk on it, so when you put a tape in and push play, the tape sticks to it, and simply wraps the tape rounmd and round.... eating the tape - as you say. The capstan SHAFT (see below) could also be dirty. Another possibility is that the take up spool (in the machine) is gunked up so it won't turn - so that the tape is spooled OUT of the cassette and is scrunched up inside the machine and the machine eats it.

There are OTHER scenarios, BUT ALL (including the above) require taking the machine apart and throughly cleaning it with alcohol (or - depending on what you're cleaning - even soap and water!).

Cleaning the capstan pinch roller and the capstan SHAFT concievable could solve your problem. The capstan shaft is the shiny metal shaft that pulls the tape through; the pinch roller "pinches" the tape AGAINST the capstan shaft which is how the tape plays.)

It's hard to "get in there" to do this cleaning (not to mention even SEE what's going on) short of taking the mache apart.
