Press the telephone button first with one finger and immediately after you press that button press the rewind button, The unit should go into rewind and erase should be flashing on the digital display. When the unit starts rewinding take your finger off of both buttons, if you keep them on ,then the unit will rewind and stop erasing .

Some times the battery contact need to be pulled out a little bit. they are located down inside the battery compartment. You can stick a small screwdriver under the battery contact and bend it upward for better contact. If that doesn't work try removing the back cover and tightening the grounding screw, which is a silver screw located by the motor pulley hole. Sometimes this screw loosens up and then the ground is lost to the entire unit

It is under the flap located directly under the keyboard buttons. It is a slide switch and you can adjust it for a little recall or a lot of recall.

This unit most likely has a broken rewind/fast forward rubber belt. This is a very common problem and is easily fixed if you can acquire a new belt. Any place that services Lanier equipment should be able to easily fix this problem.

Tape players need maintenance often. You have to replace the belt, clean the rubber roller with Rubber Renue, put grease on the odd spot and clean the head by rubbing clean white paper on it. Any electrical contacts like a volume switch etc need a contact spray to remove oxides etc. This should be done every 5 years or even more often if used more often.
