I don't know if you can help or not, but i picked up a pioneer stereo/cd/dual cassette player - model xr-p260f at a garage sale. It's really clean and looks like it hasn't had much use. The...


Hi,
Tape players have several rubber belts in it and if we do not use them frequently belts loosen and become useless and they need to be replaced... . To accomplish this however you need some sort of handy man ability.. Take out the metal cover of the player by removing the screws on the sides .after removing the cover you can access the tape head /transport mechanism. if you look carefully to underneath of tape transport you will see the motor unit which belts will be there...check the belts for the moving mechanism and make sure the belts are not loosen / worn out or broken . You can replace it with a new one that may available in radio Shack stores. Take care..and let me know if it does not work out..
Take care and please Remember to rate/vote for us to

I have a Technics Double Cassette Deck RS-TR212. On the rear it has Output and Input connections. Output goes off to the Amplifier. Can the Input be used to record or play from a record Turntable? I have...


your receiver has (or should have) input and output connections,, your turntable needs to be hooked to the receiver,, then with the output cables that feed your cassette player you need to go, in to out and out to in ( receiver output to the input of the tape player, and out of the tape player to the in on the receiver, while playing a record if you hit record on the tape player it will record the record, depending on the receiver it will show you the meter readings for either the in or out,, they vary

I inherited this dual-deck amplifier from an uncle who has passed on. Unfortunately there is no manual with it anymore. The buttons on the tape decks don't depress except for the stop which immediately...


Hello
It's hard to provide advice without knowing make / model number. Many manufacturers have back issues of owners manuals on their websites - if not a Google search will often trawl one up
Lots of manufacturers used to put 'soft touch' buttons on cassette players - they don't actually push in (just wobble a bit) but work nonetheless. From your description it sounds like the drive belt has broken - alternatively it could be some worn cogs in the motor system, which might explain the clicking sound. Many years ago I had an AIWA tape deck that made a loud clicking when the tape counter got to 9999. Pressing the counter reset used to clear it.
You should be able to connect a CD or DVD player to it using the auxiliary sockets on the rear panel (assuming it has some). Any tape/ aux inputs should be the right impedance to work okay but a phono (record player) socket is unlikely to match. There will normally be a row of buttons (or perhaps a rotary dial) on the front to select input source.

Tape is torn and I need to get it out of the cassette housing, splice the tape, then place in a new housing. Where can I get a repair kit??


Cat. No. 44-626 used to be available at Radio Shack but no more.

This might work..

http://www.gearslutz.com/board/geekslutz-forum/31114-cassette-repair-kit.html

"Splice the broken end to the take up reel of a newly bought cassette that you can open.
open the new cassette,
trash the interior
If you can't move the old reels to the new mechanism:
tape one side of the broken cassette's tape to the new take up reel
close the new cassette (do not open or break the old cassette if it's not already done)
insert a pencil into the gizmo on the take up reel on the new cassette,
reel up the old cassettes tape into the new cassette
re open the new cassette
splice the other end to the new cassette's gizmo
close the new cassette
record the contents to digital"

I have a TDK HD-01 head demagnetizer for cassette decks, but I have lost the instructions. Could you help?


Hi there.
First - Turn On The Tape Demagnatiser (should be a switch on it)
Second - Insert into cassette player
Third - Turn On cassette player
Fourth - TURN DOWN VOLUME ON AMPLIFIER TO MINIMUM (This is essential!)
Fifth - Press Play on cassette player
Sixth - After 10 seconds press stop on the cassette player
Seventh - Remove the cassette demagnetizer from the cassette player
Eighth - Turn off the demagnetizer and put back in it's usual storage place

AGAIN, MAKE SURE THE VOLUME IS TURN TO MINIUM WHEN USING THIS AS THE NOISES CAN DAMAGE SPEAKERS.

Kenwood KA-72B Stereo Receiver HELP NEEDED.


Why not plug the cassette directly into the CD recorder? Are they trying to achieve some eqalization change? If not, then this should work. It's all analog at tape level.
