Question about Dictaphone 2740 Desktop Cassette Transcriber / Recorder

1 Answer

Dictaphone 2740 desktop.

Message appears on digital display 'cassette rec. protected'. It is also set as "Letter" which is not a function we usually use. How do I turn these functions off??

    I found the solution to this problem. It has to do with the dictaphone function to hold a dictation so that nothing else can be recorded on the tape. The way to fix it is to fast forward the tape to the end (or at least the end of the recording) and then hold the erase and rewind buttons at the same time until the entire cassette has been deleted.

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.

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'?

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.
