Question about Sony BM-850T Desktop Cassette Transcriber / Recorder

1 Answer

I have a M-2000 Microcassette Transcriber and I can't for the life of me figure out how to erase my tapes. There is no erase button to hold down and rewind as with my old Sony unit. Does this unit erase tapes at all?

Hello,

This unit does not have erase. You can use a microcassette tape eraser which you slide the tape thru.

I have a new Sony Microcassette Transcriber M-2000 and cannot figure out how to ERASE a tape that I've transcribed. The Operating Instructions don't mention that feature, either. Can you help me?


Hello sorry the M-2000 don't have the ERASE feature but your only option is to get a tape eraser you can get one at http://www.tvps.com/Products/ECS-ME20-Mini--Micro-Cassette-Eraser---New__VE-ME-20.aspx just think positive your unit will last longer the eraser prolong the life of units just pass the microcassete once on the eraser and is done full erase :)

What a cheap machine. Can't erase confidential tapes after transcribing them. I'm returning this for a brand that has enough common sense to add an erase button.


Hello unfortunately this unit don't have a erase function the only thing you can get a Microcassette eraser this eraser will help even if you decide to buy any micro or mini cassette transcriber when you used the erase function on the unit the life on the head, rewind, gears and motors get reduced by using this method if you used and eraser it erase the tape Magnets are on top and bottom eliminating the need to flip the tape allowing complete erasure on one second heare is a eraser you can buy and it is cheaper than buying other unit. http://www.tvps.com/Products/ECS-ME20-Mini--Micro-Cassette-Eraser---New__VE-ME-20.aspx

How to erase tapes


In reading the pamphlet that came with mine, I noticed that it says that when a recording is made , the previous recording is automatically erased. I guess you can only erase it by recording over it, which is stupid.....I can't believe they didn't put an erase button on it!
