20 year old Dictaphone Voice Processor Microcassette not working

I put new batteries in this 20 year old PITNEY BOWES PORTABLE MICRO CASSETTE Voice Activated DICTAPHONE and unfortunately, while all the analogue switches seem to work, the microcassette tape will not turn at all, either in forward or reverse. Should I try a new tape or is there some cleaning process that may be helpful? Any suggestions, because there is clearly good power with the new batteries? Many thanks

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?

I have just bought a Dictaphone express writer 1740. It rewinds and fast forward but does not play properly. It is in excellent condition. We are using micro cassettes. The manual said this machine can...


This unit takes mini cassettes, not micro. A common issue with the playback on this model is the rubber tire on the drive reel cracks, causing it not to turn. It probably needs to be replaced.

Can't you simply take the tape from the 2750 and put it into the other Dictaphone to play it? Or is the other Dictaphone a different size tape (eg; mini or micro)?

"No Cassette"


There is a small switch mounted ion the tape deck. You may be able to take it apart and slightly bend the switch upwards so the switch will be activated.
