Dictaphone 2710 noise problem

I have a Dictaphone 2710, standard cassette transcriber, and it makes it a loud squealing noise whenever a tape is inserted, which gets louder. It seems to be the tiny brass pin in the bottom right of the machine, where you insert the tape. Does this just need to be oiled? If so, what type of oil should be used? I bought this machine a few months ago as refurbished and it will cost me more than I originally paid for it to send it back to the company to fix it! And of course, the warranty just ran out.

This squealing noise is caused by the capstan motor. The bearings have dried up and it's metal on metal - causing an awful squealing noise. As soon as you put in a cassette, the motor begins to spin - causing the squealing noise.

A loud beep on a 2710 dictaphone


There is a couple reasons way your unit can beep.
#1 not tape on the unit
#2 if you trying to record maybe the cassette tab on the cassette is broken to protect a recording
#3 it can be at the end of the tape
#4 try to play and make sure tape moves if tape don't move possible broken belt or bad motor
If none above you can send an email to service@tvps.com or call (805) 644-9525. Please indicate model and detailed description of problem.

The dictaphone wont rewind or fast forward and makes a bleeping noise


Hi,
Does the tape move when you press rewind or fast forward.
If the tape moves for a few seconds then bleeps it sound like a sensor problem.
If it only bleeps when the rewind and fast forward are pressed and the play is ok it sounds like the actuator motor is faulty,this motor enables the rewind and fast forward.
Hope this helps.

I want to transfer files that were recorded on a dictaphone on to another dictaphone to play. How do I do this? The files are the same format and when I move them the dictaphone doesn't have them to play


Can't you simply take the tape from the 2750 and put it into the other Dictaphone to play it? Or is the other Dictaphone a different size tape (eg; mini or micro)?

Dictaphone transcriber 3750 won't play, reverse, or go forward. What can I do?


Does anything show up on the display? Like 'No Cassette' or 'End Tape'?

Are you using a foot control? Does the tape move when pressing the buttons on the machine itself? Is the foot control plugged into the side of the machine (and NOT the back)?

Dictaphone 3750 transcriber


If it does this with all tapes, there is a small "no-cassette" switch at the back of the cassette compartment. The switch may be broken, dirty or out of adjustment. When you open the cassette door you should be able to see the switch tab. Push it in just a bit to see if the No Tape indicator goes out.

More than likely then the drive belt is broken or the motor is bad.
If you press the reset button the 88.8 flashing should go to 00.0.
If you are sure the tape is good, there is also a switch at the rear of the cassette compartment to detect if the record prevention tab is missing from the cassette itself. If the tab is in the cassette, the switch could be dirty or out of adjustment.

"No Cassette"


There is a small switch mounted ion the tape deck. You may be able to take it apart and slightly bend the switch upwards so the switch will be activated.
