Question about Sony BM-850T Desktop Cassette Transcriber / Recorder

1 Answer

Sony BM840 Dictaphone/Transcriber

The microcassette tape keeps coming off the spool intermittently. I think it needs to be serviced or cleaned. I cannot find a repair person except shipping it to another city, Los Angeles. I am in San Diego. I think this just needs some adjustment or cleaning but I don't know how to do it.

Dictaphone intermittently shuts off while recording.


The power jack sometimes comes loose on this model. With the power on, wiggle the jack. If it powers off, then it needs to be resoldered. Service can be done by dictationmall if needed.

Not sure if you're still having problems with this portable, but the first thing I would check is to make sure that you've put the batteries UNDER the battery clip in the battery compartment. Does the machine just make a 'beeping' noise when it tries to play, rew, or FF?
