Question about Marantz PMD101 PORTABLE PROFESSIONAL CASSETTE RECORDER Single Dual Cassette Deck

1 Answer

Incorrect record speed

I sent my PMD101 to a Marantz expert for service. He changed the rubber rings and toatally screwed up the machine. I was so upset I put it away and never looked at the machine again.
If one of your experts is local to me(HA5 4DU in UK), I would like to bring it to you to recaliberate or change the rubbers so that it records and plays back at the right speed. This was used by my music teacher wife who used it extensively for her students. Since its demise we use a cheap £25.00 Sony cassette recorder. We have gone through 3 machines so far.

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.

Hi. My At&t Cordless 2 Hand set Telephone (EL52213) Answering machine (ON) doesn't record incoming messages. The Message window shows 0. The Telephone base is connected with my FAX machine (Teleph


If your Phone service is recording messages, that disconnects your line. You need to have them turn that feature off, OR set the answering machine to answer is less rings, say two or three. If the FAX machine listens to the line, it can still be set at a higher amount of rings, say four, and should still answer any FAX signal as it's sent to the answering machine.

Why won't the answering machine, when set to 'answer on' not record a message?.It goes to voice mail. Is my machine defective?


Maybe the answering machine is set to pick up at say"5 rings" and the voice mail is set to pickup at "4 rings" . Change the voicemail setting to a higher setting than the answering machine. That may be the problem.

lift the turntable off ,under the rubber mat on the spindle is a circlip,remove the circlip and the turntable lifts up ,their you will see a rubber drive wheel and a spindle with different sizes on the shaft the rubber wheel moves up or down on the shaft against this spindle so you get the different speeds ,i do think you will just have to renew the rubber drive wheel ,or in many cases it was a plastic wheel with a rubber "O" ring .this has perished with age and you might be able to either still buy a new one or just change the "O" ring ,depends on model and type.These were very good machines in their time with solid state transistors ,i know because i bought one ,and paid it off at a pound a week .Many moons ago

Marantz CDR-510: Playback is good , recording is distorted


If this brand of media is new to you and the symptom is unique to it, I'd try a different brand.

Monitoring during record would never reveal media problems as there is no immediate playback after record as on old-school 3-head tape recorders.

I've had similar intermittent problems and I never could find a pattern to it except that it always seemed to be on low-end media. My best advice would be to try to find a pattern in your instance and make a change that avoids it. Then publish what you learned for us.

Good luck.

Can't get tight fit between basket & steam ring


the proper replacement steam ring has an up-side & down side. the brew-head plate must be installed with the grooved side facing up; the steam ring has a groove in one side that fits over the top up the brew-head plate...does this solve the problem? if not, you may have the wrong steam ring/the brewhead plate may be installed incorrectly...oh, nov of 08...i seriously hope you've figured this out already. if not, you don't happen to still have machine in your possession, do you? if so, i'll buy it for $5.

MARANTZ PMD 101 PROBLEMS, COUNTER AND REWIND


Get the belts changed, and check a clutch inside the mech which drives the auto-stop mechanism.

It works in a way that it normally holds the auto-stop off if the spools are rotating, but when it wears, there is no srive through it to hold the auto-stop off, so the auto-stops stops, if you see what I mean.

Any good audio tech should be able to do this, if the machine otherwise works OK, it is worth doing because these are very nice and usually reliable machines.

For musical work though, the CP series are usually better, as they provide 3-heads and off-tape monitoring, with better quality and the facility to set tape bias to suit high-grade tapes.

take out the pins that resemble watch pins! remove the stickey label with the
power switch,usb and 5 volt jack cut outs! If you have taken out the screws needed up to this point and you are a little bit technical this should get you into the unit.

If you don't have the skill, hire it out. Joe Taken

Dual tape deck speed


you might get in contact with mcm electronics and buy a product called re-grip...this product rejuvinates the rubber,, i suspect that your problem is not so much a speed problem but one of slippage,,,,dress all belts and rollers with this product, wipe the excess with a as many q-tips as necessary and allow to cure for a few hours, re-assemble and enjoy your unit again,,,,this should solve your problem,,good luck
