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.

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.

Dictaphone ExpressWriter system - tape will not rewind, play, ff


Is this a standard-size cassette unit? Is the model number a 2740 or 2750? When you first plug the power in, does the machine make two clicking noises? Does the display show 'CAS' or 'No Cassette'?

Dictaphone Expresswriter 2740 Tape Won't Move


The problem is with the capstan motor. More than likely it has developed a 'flat spot' and won't spin up. The clicking noise you hear is the solenoids trying to pull the heads into place, but because the motor isn't turning, it can't pull the heads into place.

Dictaphone 2740 desktop.


Try another cassette. There is a tab on each side of the back edge of a tape which when removed will prevent most machines from going into record. If the tab is there (and not bent in), then the switch at the back of the cassette compartment is dirty or out of adjustment. If you can find a manual for the 2740 (try at www.nuance.com, they bought Dictaphone), it will show how to change the Letter display back to a timeline. Good Luck.
