You should check to see if you have the machine set on Dictator Press. If you hold the pedal for more than a second it resets. This might be your issue.

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

Hello yes, if you record to the casette the previous content is lost, what do you mean?

Hi there,

Well it seems a hardware problem in your tape...... first of all you can try to reset your tape by removing battery and power connection for 1 hour.... if further you have the same problem then you need to open your foot pedal and then you can try to clean the chip circuit behind the non working button, use some alcohol to clean the chip.....
let us know if this works....

Good Luck!!
