Does anyone know how to adjust the reverse speed on the microcassette transcription machine?


You should check to see if you have the machine set on Dictator Press. If you hold the pedal for more than a second it resets. This might be your issue.

Continuous beep


Hello. The TRC8080 will coontinously beep when trying to record if the tab switch (this is described in the service manual a Tab Switch S3, S4) fails. The tab switch consists of two leaf switches one is so the machine know there is a tape in the machine and the other check for record protect. Over a period of time thee canbecomebent anwill not always connect when a tape is in. This wll result in you either not being able to play a casette or not being able to record depending on which one fails. These can only be replaced as a pair. If it is not the tab switch which has failed then the cassette tabs on the top may be bent in slightly which means you will need to replace the cassette.

If the tab switch has failed and you dont want to pay for a repair you take the 5 screws out of the back of the machine, lift the top cabinet off (disconnect the single molex connector) and short the switches together. (Solder is best) this will leave the switches perminatly in the 'on' position meaning you can dictate away.

Remember if you shoose to short the switches together the motor will run as soon as the cassette lid is closed and the machine is on. This may make the motor fail a little bit earlier than normal.

Unable to understand how to dictate and play back


It may seem too obvious, but make sure the volume control is turned up fully. If you do not hear a click through the loudspeaker when pressing the record button then either the 'speaker wire has broken or the 'speaker itself is dead. Parts are still available.

Recording Speed


the tascam 414 is a 4 track recording studio which uses standard cassette tapes- meaning they only play in one direction, because the tape is full. The 414 records at double speed so that recording fidelity is increased. When you have made a recording you want to mix you then dub your recording though the outputs into another standard tape recorder or whatever you have available, be it a cd recorder or your PC. So, when you listened to your recording on a standard tape player, you were not only hearing it at half speed but you were only listening to 2 of the 4 tracks. The other tracks would only be heard if you flipped the tape over, and they would be heard running backward. I would have though the 414 had a swich to allow it to also record at standard speed to but I guest it does not.

Camera plays in fast forward-like speed


Though I don't know the details of your camera and the tape you are playing, one explanation could be that the tape was recorded in "extended play" EP rather than "standard play" SP. Some VCRs and some cameras are incapable of playing back in EP, a mode where the tape moves at half speed so you can record more on the same tape. The result is that the tape playing back at regular speed appears twice as fast and fast forward will be even faster.

Unfortunately, unless your machine can be manually set to play back in EP (usually it is automatic) the solution is to play it back in a machine that can handle EP.

Too fast playback of video cassette


Hi,

Initially, I am inclined to think that nothing is wrong. It is just most likely that that particular tape was recorded in a different speed other than what your VCR is capable of playing. This is a form of compression wherein a longer recording/playing time is squeezed into the same type/kind of tape. The various settings are SP, LP, EP or even an XP. Pls click here to give you an idea of the recording time/speed at different settings.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Incorrect record speed


do you have a reel to reel deck or another machine? You may also need a schematic. Make a copy of about 2 minutes of a tape on a working machine. Keep the original in the working machine. Each cassette deck needs a different size belt. Try putting different size rubber bands on it. Cassettes usually play at 1 7/8 IPS (inches per second) each speed increases or decreases by doubling or dividing by 2.
