SOURCE: Repairing or replacing old tape decks

Hi m522posner

There is a surprising interest in "vintage" hifi products these days. Your tape machines probably needs new belts. Check this site out. You can get spares for your tape machine here. Belt kits are $17. He does repairs also, but the transport to and from may be an issue for you. I suggest emailing Bob, he may be able to refer you to someone in CA > I could do the repairs,but I am in Australia. :)

You could have a go at freshening up the belts yourself:)

SOURCE: play back on Sanyo mr-929 reel-to-reel tape recorder is backwards

I also have an MR-929. The information that you need is in the 'Stereophonic 4 track stereo''. As stereo is only two tracks, there is another 2 tracks in addition to the one you are listening to. Wind the entire reel to the empty spool, and then play that. As you have to physically turn the reel over to do so, you should then hear the other tracks (or track, if recorded in mono).
I use my 929 to play my parents recording of my family from the late 60s, which were recorded on a valve (tube) Ferguson machine, which had a green "magic eye" level indicator, which as a child I found fascinating!

SOURCE: My AKAI GX 636 records but can't hear anything on playback

Trace the wires from the head to the amp section. Put your finger on where they join (during playback) and see if you can get a buzz. If you can't on either channel, look for something that might be common to both channels. Either a switch, or a pre-amp IC, as being the cause of the fault.

SOURCE: Sony TC-530 hum in internal amplifier left channel.

Electrolytic capacitors are good at causing hum. You could try replacing some of them, they are not expensive. Otherwise you might have damaged the left channel amp semiconducter, whatever that might be.

How do you record on 4 tracks?


If you have a 4 channel quad tape deck you arm all four tracks and hit record and play and it will record on all 4. If you have only a stereo deck you can only record on 2 channels at a time.
What model are you talking about?

Reel recorder


The A4070G can record in each direction but has a switch that needs to change to switch the heads. This must be stuck after all this time and so the deck needs service. They are not easy unit to work on. I have one in my shop now. The bad news is that they use combo record and erase Ferrite heads that can not be sourced anymore.
I am very familiar with this model as I worked at Teac and fixed many of them.

Low volume recording on reel to reel tape deck


Problem could be in either the record or playback circuits of unit. Try playing back a tape in another machine to see what the volume is like. If also low then the issue is with the record amp circuits.
Fixing will not be cost effective, however.
